1974 Argosy 20' Motorhome Exhibit "H"

1974 Airstream Argosy 20' Motorhome (H)
1974 Argosy 20' Motorhome

We have owned this "one of a kind" motorhome for about 4 years. We started with the intention of doing a full restoration. There has been extensive mechanical work, (have all receipts) front end work consisting of re-attaching suspension points to the frame, new steering box, new steering shaft, flywheel, starter, batteries, new super duty Monroe shocks, six new Firestone heavy duty tires, (less than 800 miles) complete brakes and bearings as needed; hoses, shoes, one new drum, & seals. The wheels are the much sought after Alcoa aluminum wheels. Most of the lighting works and the spotlight works. This unit needs the aesthetics now and some love. Some things are showing their age, but the unit can be used as is. The big "Zip Dee" awning needs some attention, the other two work fine. We own a 32' Airstream also, and it fits our needs and we don't need two of these. We are unsure as to the real miles on the chassis although the speedo shows 1,975 miles. The inside is clean and the carpet is new. We have never attempted to start the generator. The California plate is "Surf Lab." We call it "Stubby!"

Sofa makes into a bed.

There is a wet bathroom with sink, toilet, hand held shower.

Some lighting and interior electrical does not work.

The current owner does state that the Argosy had been sent back to the Airstream factory for a refurbishment. I think it was done sometime in the mid to late 80s based on the interior components matching the 84 to 86 era design. The galvanized rear cap has been replaced with the aluminum segments and the front cap sure looks aluminum to me but I'm not certain of that.

The middle section of the body on the drivers side is all 74 Argosy. The passenger side middle has been upgraded with a second window and both of the side slider windows are of the later variety. The dash, bathroom and engine cover are definitely 74 vintage. Part of the cabinet arrangement is the same as my 74 but the stove was moved from the passenger side over to the left side. The rear interior end cap is definitely the same as the 310/345 I'm familiar with. The generator compartment door while still in the same location appears to be a later model door. I think it's the same as the one I have from the 345.

Location: San Clemente, California
