1977 28′ Argosy

About a month ago, I noticed an EBay Classified Ad for a 1977 28″ Argosy that appeared in good shape. The classified ad expired and I didn’t give it another thought. Then about a week ago, I did a random Craig’s List search and found it again!

After emailing the owners, I found out that it is in good condition and the price is $250 less and now $6500. It has new tires, new awning, new oven/stove, new fridge ….and is the configuration we want: rear bedroom/side bath.

I want to pull up the vinyl tile and put pergo put down. It needs a good scrub because every travel trailer needs a good scrub after winter (this one is in great shape!). I can see an old school Hawaiian theme (classy not trashy) being added. Google: Hawaiian Quilts. I’m thinking of toning it down with natural burlap tones. Eventually, I want to re-paint the outside in two-tone: tan on bottom, off white on top with a copper border.

We made an appt to look at it this Saturday.

……but, there is an 1972 Airstream Excella 500 for sale an hour closer at the same price with all the updates completed. Decisions. Decisions!

      Cam – Since we just purchased this Argosy in April & have put in $2k in renovations, I am not sure I could part with it just yet. πŸ™‚

      I hate to hear about the damage of your Argosy. I hope that everyone is ok.
