The Airstream Argosy 26” Motor Home is one of the RAREST collectible Airstreams made post 1960! This size was only made 1 year and in very limited production. “RUBY”; as we affectionately have named her, is one of these units and has many of the options offered that year. We have been gradually putting her back in shape mechanically, electrically and cosmetically and have also been enjoying her in between times traveling many miles with her to much fascination from the public! She is always a hit in any campground and is probably the perfect design for truly long distance travel – big enough to accommodate three people (four with a blow up mattress) and yet with only two axles SAVES BIG DOLLARS AT THE TOLL BOOTHS!! Plus she gets 13 miles to the gallon on regular gas more if you stay at 55mph!
“RUBY” is blessed with the even rarer “Panoramic” rear windows which offers an unbelievable view onto the world at any exciting destination or along the way. She has an A/C that will freeze you and we just completed replacing the dash A/C which never works on these units – but hers does now! She has brand new front shocks, needs the rear shocks replaced at some point and has six BRAND NEW LIGHT TRUCK TIRES that are self-balancing! Brand new custom made stainless steal exhaust. She has brand new indoor outdoor carpeting throughout the cabin, a central vacuum, new built in Samsung Convection Microwave, a Dometic 3-way Refrigerator/Freezer, a Onan 3.6kw generator that is freshly serviced and works well, rebuilt radiator, rebuilt transmission, freshly redesigned interior with extra storage, comfy bucket driver and passenger seats, a wonderful new bench seat surrounded in real teak with storage under and custom trash slide out and storage unit to the side. This unit also has a granite top side table for the sofa when relaxing. “RUBY” has a power booster on her antenna which brings in amazing television programming to enjoy when relaxing. She has the ability to have an awning but we will leave that to the new owner. Also as she has a POWERFUL 454 engine so she can easily tow a car or a trailer to carry equipment and supplies! Her CUSTOM trailer hitch was professionally installed to handle a boat although she has never towed one as the boat we bought was way too big!
“RUBY” is not a perfect motor home; as the pictures represent, but she is usable until someone wants to complete her restoration. She does have under-carriage rust (they all do) and we are gradually addressing it. Frankly, at some point we would take her body off the frame and completely restore the frame and at the same time have her either polished to that brilliant shine or have her repainted which the Argosy’s were originally. These Airstream Argosy’s are just a wonderful way to travel or even live full time. Simple, easy to handle, can almost fit in a standard parking space, self contained (add solar and go completely off the grid) and also have a charm that you actually fall in love with them. This is our second one and we hate parting with her but we have to focus on other things at the moment. As we are designers we could also assist the new buyer in completing her restoration if desired which could be negotiated separately.
