 We took the Basecamp to the Airstream factory in Jackson Center, Ohio in August for some warranty service (read that as leak fixing). While we were on that trip, we found a 20 foot Airstream Safari at a local dealer and fell in love with the floorplan. Yes, I know, we only had the Basecamp for a few months... Regardless, the cost of the new 20 footer was out of the question. So, with the Basecamp fixed and back in tow we headed off, back to New Jersey. We took the Basecamp to the Airstream factory in Jackson Center, Ohio in August for some warranty service (read that as leak fixing).

-In September 2007, I was sitting in the lounge of the Kansas City airport waiting for my flight home from a photo assignment when I found a listing on the airforums.com classifieds for a 1972 20 foot Argosy. No price was listed, but the photos looked pretty good, so I gave Liz a call to let her know I had found our "​new"​ trailer. That weekend, we contacted the owner and made arrangements to drive to North carolina ​to pick it up.+In September 2007, I was sitting in the lounge of the Kansas City airport waiting for my flight home from a photo assignment when I found a listing on the airforums.com classifieds for a 1972 20 foot Argosy.

 Here's a shot of the Argosy on our second night out on the way home (the first night was spent in a Wal-Mart parking lot). Here's a shot of the Argosy on our second night out on the way home (the first night was spent in a Wal-Mart parking lot).

 The bathroom vanity was pieced together with parts from the original and some wainscoating we had in the garage. It is temporary as we plan to make a new one as well as a new door for the bathroom closet as a winter project. The bathroom vanity was pieced together with parts from the original and some wainscoating we had in the garage.

-We were in a bit of a hurry to get the trailer campable as we wanted to tow it to Massachusetts for Thanksgiving. This time, we would stay in the trailer! We got her back in camping trim in just under siz weeks. There is still a lot to do, but the worst is behind us now. The exterior paint will wait until Spring, but the interior decorating is well underway.+We were in a bit of a hurry to get the trailer campable as we wanted to tow it to Massachusetts for Thanksgiving.
