Looks like it rolled. Should show up on Ebay soon needing TLC.

Looks like a bad end for a good Argosy - sorry to see it.

Why all it needs is a little work ... and $100,000 in parts.

I have been wondering how many airstreams/argosys went to the trailer graveyard after Katrina.

Whenever I see photos of an RV accident I wonder more about the cause then the effect. What are the lessons learned?

I would say it is a good reason to have my brakes checked out before the next trip. Good news that no one was hurt.
