Andy’s Argosy

Hi, I’d like to submit my 1975 Airstream Argosy vintage tiny house remodel for your website. Many of the interior elements remain original, but somethings you don’t want to be vintage–like the toilet and air conditioner. Reclaimed hardwood floors, custom screen-printed wallpaper, and butcher block countertop are some of the custom features. The trailer features panoramic wrap-around windows and skylights in the front and back, allowing light to pour in from every side.

Andy remodels vintage trailers, given them a second chance to hit the road and fulfill their intended purpose, house people while out and about.

    Well, I think you did a wonderful job on the Argosy.

    ACK. YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PAINT AIRSTREAMS. It’s bad for the original finish /and/ for the paint.

    There’s nothing wrong with painting them as long as it’s done properly…
    and that’s what the owner really,really wants.

    A bit of much of trouble to go back to original,
    to say the least.

    That being said,
    it’s no different than painting an aircraft and you don’t see many of them in unpainted metal anymore since Imron,etc. have become readily available.

    Not everybody likes shiny metal.

    I do-
    but I don’t own that trailer.

      They’re not designed for it, it invariably looks horrible, and it inevitably flakes/peels off and looks even worse.

      Three strikes, yer out.

    For all of the people saying “don’t paint the Airstream.” You are right…except in this case. The Argosy is the “painted Airstream” – a little history here. The Argosy is made by Airstream – but used a lower-grade aluminum to save costs. It probably came painted and you can repaint an Argosy.

    I love this little house! I think you did a fabulous job keeping the vintage and adding in the modern. It is a great mix of vintage and the industrial with amazing pops of color. You did a great job!! Please – park this in my driveway and give me the keys!!
