      • Description: I've decided to sell our current Airstream Argosy so we can look for one that has twin beds for our kids.

        Clear title in hand.

        We are located just west of downtown Chicago.

        *Please note, camper is listed locally as well as on eBay. If it sells for our local asking price (same as Buy it Now, $5800), auction will end. Reserve is set at 4500.

        Bathroom works, there's a stove/oven/sink. A dorm fridge will fit in just fine.

        LOTS of storage. 3 drawers under each fold down bed, front and side, then there are 3 cabinets over the sink and the side bed, as well as tambour doors over the front bunk. Then there are cabinets under the sink, and closets in the back of the camper and in the bathroom as well. As I said, LOTS of storage.

        Floor is in great shape, no leaks, no soft spots. (For real.) All wood was replaced by previous owner, then new vinyl tiles put down.

        Roof fans work, water pump works, furnace / thermostat works! (No AC)

        We haven't hooked up the propane / hot water heater, but they're there and given the working condition of the rest of the appliances, I'd feel pretty optimistic that they work as well.

        In the photos, we have beds made up and blankets laid out. We have the original cushions and the upholstery is in good shape. It's orange tweed.

        We have a new door handle/lock/key. Installation needs to be completed. Ready for a sanding and fresh paint job, or you can just be OK with the current paint blemishes. Argosy trailers with original paint have a personality flaw in that the original paint chips. They all do this, but it's easy to roll on new enamel paint.

        Door needs work as it is currently "sprung" (swung open on the freeway and bent back on itself, so it doesn't make the proper Airstream seal). What you need to do is drill out the rivets on the inside door skin, then strap the door so that it bends back to the curved shape of the trailer (see pics), then re-rivet (not a big deal, just get a rivet gun) the inner skin so it holds the door's curvature. Rivets are 1/8" and run about $2.50 a pack at ACE. A decent rivet gun runs about $20.

        Inside is in great shape, is cozy and camp-ready. In the pics I have a 4 pin brake light setup because my old vehicle did not have a 6 pin setup, but the 6 pin is still connected and works great. We just used it this past weekend.

        There is a tear in the screen door screen, but it is in otherwise good shape. We never got around to showering in it, so I can't speak to the rest of the mechanicals.

        LOWEST TOW WEIGHT you'll find in any Airstream. We pulled this with our Subaru Tribeca, equipped with an aftermarket transmission cooler.
