1975 Airstream Argosy

26'

5500 OBO

This is my first experience towing and have decided a smaller Airstream would be a better fit.

Trailer is currently in indoor winter storage and cannot be moved out until April 1st. At that time, if it hasn t sold I will have it moved to contractor storage where I will start working on it and sell when it s finished. Although, my preference would be to spend the time and effort working on something I am planning to keep.

I do not need to sell this trailer so no lowball offers please.

Front Dinette, Gaucho couch with wardrobe. Sleeps 4.

Glass intact

Interior cabinets/walls/furniture intact.

No cushions.

Drapes not original.

Had an awning at one time still has the awning rail and base hinges

All windows open and close however, most appear to need new seals and a couple need new striker plates and positioners

Main door lock works well as does the screen closure and clip on the body to hold doors open.

No end separation or sag that I could detect standing on the bumper although as I walked around inside I suspect the area around the edge of the shower pan has some rot. Not unusual for the bathrooms in the vintage trailers.

Both end caps have dents. In the Argosy these are galvanized steel and repairable if you know how to do that OR can be repaired at a body shop. pictures are of the same dent in different lighting and angles

I was told by RV mechanic using a slightly deflated basketball can sometimes push them out from the inside then Bondo, primer and paint is all that is needed if you are okay with a little less than perfect repair. Dent is NOT visible from the inside. I added pictures of the dent from different angle and lighting it looks worse than it is depending on the picture.

  • Needs new LP and regulator
  • No water heater and the compartment door has been replaced with a piece of metal riveted in place.
  • No refrigerator
  • Original stove
  • Minor dents and scuffs you would expect from a 45 year old trailer.
  • Have keys and manual Compartment locks are difficult to turn.

Clean NE title in hand

I had the trailer checked out at Outdoor Recreation in Council Bluffs, Iowa when I purchased it in July. Assessment is the trailer is solid for its age.

AC which appears newer turns on that is the only information I have about the interior appliances and systems. Our plan was a complete gut and rebuild so we were not interested in paying to have someone check out the systems.

Trailer was towed twice over 300 miles from Sigourney Iowa to Omaha Nebraska, and then to the indoor storage facility where it sits now. Both drivers said that it towed easily. Tires appear to be in good condition but I have no information on age or mileage on them.

Previous owner noted that one of the roof vents leaked in the rain these older trailers leak more than a little bit so I was not surprised and needs to be sealed/replaced. I have not had the trailer out in the elements so have not experienced that and could not find evidence of water leaking on the interior.

Step to get in the trailer does not lower. Mechanic at Outdoor Recreation was not concerned and said that they often get corroded and could likely be fixed and operational.

I have had 4 estimates to do, shell off restoration, body work, system replacements and paint and I would be happy to share those with you so you can get an idea for cost involved if you are unable to do the work yourself.

I have many more pictures and videos I can share if someone is interested.

In the Argosy these are galvanized steel and repairable if you know how to do that OR can be repaired at a body shop. </p><p>I was told by RV mechanic using a slightly deflated basketball can sometimes push them out from the inside then Bondo, primer and paint is all that is needed if you are okay with a little less than perfect repair. Dent is NOT visible from the inside. I added pictures of the dent from different angle and lighting it looks worse than it is depending on the picture. </p><ul><li>Needs new LP and regulator </li><li>No water heater and the compartment door has been replaced with a piece of metal riveted in place. </li><li>No refrigerator</li><li>Original stove</li><li> Minor dents and scuffs you would expect from a 45 year old trailer. </li><li>Have keys and manual Compartment locks are difficult to turn. </li></ul><p> Clean NE title in hand</p><p>I had the trailer checked out at Outdoor Recreation in Council Bluffs, Iowa when I purchased it in July. Assessment is the trailer is solid for its age. </p><p>AC which appears newer turns on that is the only information I have about the interior appliances and systems. Our plan was a complete gut and rebuild so we were not interested in paying to have someone check out the systems. </p><p>Trailer was towed twice over 300 miles from Sigourney Iowa to Omaha Nebraska, and then to the indoor storage facility where it sits now. Both drivers said that it towed easily. Tires appear to be in good condition but I have no information on age or mileage on them. </p><p>Previous owner noted that one of the roof vents leaked in the rain these older trailers leak more than a little bit so I was not surprised and needs to be sealed/replaced. I have not had the trailer out in the elements so have not experienced that and could not find evidence of water leaking on the interior. </p><p>Step to get in the trailer does not lower. Mechanic at Outdoor Recreation was not concerned and said that they often get corroded and could likely be fixed and operational. </p><p>I have had 4 estimates to do, shell off restoration, body work, system replacements and paint and I would be happy to share those with you so you can get an idea for cost involved if you are unable to do the work yourself.</p><p>I have many more pictures and videos I can share if someone is interested.</p>
