I am so happy to welcome Terrah as a guest to share a bit about her Argosy Journey thus far.
I have to admit when I saw Terrah’s Argosy from the outside…it was love at first sight!!
I can’t wait to see how she finishes the inside!
Hi, I am a girl with an awesome trailer. However, it wasn’t always so awesome.
I bought it on a quick whim thinking I could buy it, move it and live in it,
but nothing is ever as it seems. It was a mess in the inner workings. So after a month
long simple renovation for the basics, I was able to take it and live in it with
my 6 dogs for 8 months. During that time my water broke, my fridge stopped
working and I only had a stand-alone air conditioner. It was like camping and a
little difficult at times, but very educational on so many levels.
Over the winter, my dad and I gutted the whole interior and re built it and hand
sanded (air sander) the exterior in preparation for painting. It was a lot of blood,
sweat and tears, but I learned so much about how things work which is necessary
when living in it. I love having the Argosy, because they were only made during
limited years and having a painted airstream allows her to be awesome eye candy
on the road. I would recommend people know what they are getting into before
thinking of renovating; it is a lot of work, but totally worth it.
