    New to the forum. My husband and I just purchased a 1978 24 ft. Argosy in pretty decent shape. Wanted to get our feet wet on first trailer before we tackled our true dream of a vintage Airstream restoration. Well, we shouldn't have said "getting our feet wet" because that is what we encountered on our first repair. First we noticed that floor under dinette was rotted so we tore out dinette and discovered fresh water tank had a tear in the filler. So off to the plastic welder it went.

    Problem is we can't seem to locate another mystery leak on the opposite side from the freshwater tank. We do notice some "bubbling" on the lower portion of inside panel above the strut that goes to the tongue of the trailer. We were wondering if this leak is from either poorly sealed front windows (they appear ok) or is water migrating from somewhere else. Has anyone out there experienced this before or are we destined to tear the front paneling out of the trailer to investigate further? Any suggestions out there?
