Argosy Journey

by Rene on June 11, 2011

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!

Welcome Terrah-

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.

 
 
 
 
 
 
The inside is coming along beautifully ….from this
 
 
 
 
to this ….  Looking forward to checking in on Terrah’s Argosy journey from time to time.
Here is a link to her flickr photos, and her awesome Etsy store DriftwoodJones…  
Thank you so much Terrah!!!
