    Referring to your message posted 2-13-10 (sorry I haven't been on for awhile) yes that is before and after photos on polishing. Alot of hardwork and time was involved. I used product from Perfect Polish.

    We have a 2006 Ford F150, with a tow package. It tows great, no problems. We have been all over the west with it and brought it from NC when we bought it 2 years ago, have never had any issues towing it anywhere. Got pictures on the forum somwhere, too tired to look for them tonight but I'll see if I can find some this week for you.

    Ours is a 76 Argosy 24, double bed. Nice trailer, just right for the two of us. Yes, artist, in several media.

    The picture is my 1979 28' Argosy. I stripped off all the paint last year and polished it. I gave the end caps a quick spray paint with rustolium to get me by until I could get it professionally painted. Price tend to be subjective, it seems like they go for $4000-8000. Just depends on what has been done to it. I had to replace hot water heater, furnace, axels, water pump and tank. those things add up quick. Luckily I did not have any major floor root. For me the biggest things are good body, no floor rot, interior cabinets and furniture in great condition. Everything else will be old and would need to be replaced anyway. Goodluck and feel free to ask me anything. Nick

    We are in Joplin, Mo. Yes, Artist, gardener, rock hound, Argosy lover, too many interests and hobbies to list. We do enjoy our Argosy, love going to rallies ( Unfortunately there are not a lot of rally opportunities in the central midwest, seems like they are always more than a day's drive away but we go to all the closer ones if we can). Hope to see you at one someday!

Looking to purchase a used airstream trailer to use in southeast AZ, off the grid. Would like to know pros and cons of these units, what to look for & price range. How do these aluminum trailors fare in the desert? Also, solar cababilities. Considering compost toilet. Can anyone share info regarding this kind of usage? Also, maybe you have one to sell?

We spent Sept 09 looking at at least 40+ Airstream (AS) trailers and Argosy trailers. The last trailer (15') we had was in 1980. The purpose of the trailer is to enjoy with our grown children and the grandchild locally. Travel south (hubby just retired from 60hrs a week) to Palm Springs, CA and sit sections of the winter. We also want to enjoy rally's with WBCC (going to Wyoming this year!)and Vintage AS groups. To meet this purpose we love the 78 27/28'. It has lots of light. Ours has the vista windows as well as those great wrap around windows. Price had a factor in the issue. We like the idea of painting it and not having to polish regularly as well. Now that is not to say we would not love a newer AS but for now this one when ready for late spring will do the job. I suggest you analysis the purpose for the trailer and then let that help you dictate the chose. Have fun shopping!
