new project: 1975 Argosy Airstream 

Camping, Gear, lifestyle, Outdoors, travel November 17, 2015

We had to rent a uhaul to get it home, and it will likely be years before we have it ready for road travel (or can afford a row vehicle!), but we love it. We bought a partially gutted, partially restored 24′ 1975 Argosy trailer.  We want it to be fully off grid and efficient, solar powered with a composting toilet. We want it to sleep four comfortably.  We want it to be light and open minimal and clean. We want to travel the continent in it with the boys. Let the games begin! 

What it does have:

A new sub floor with insulation and a redone bamboo floor.  New wheels, tires, brakes, and shocks. All the original components carefully removed and broken down. (Except furniture) Water tank and plumbing components intact. Electric partially re-done and intact and functioning. Air conditioner blows cold! Gas components in need of testing for safety and function.  No more furnace. 

What it needs:

Everything else!
