Charles, glad to see you made it home. The price you pay for the rig is always just a down payment. I'm happy to hear that it ran well. Must have been a bit brisk with the skylight window out, or did you have duct taped closed?
May I suggest that you start a new thread with your next post. The beginning of the comeback of the rig..... yet to be named....perhaps we'll see you in Hiawasse GA in April.

Charles, if the body is straight and the chassis and running gear are good (and good running gear isn't necessarily mandatory...), then a classic MH is NEVER a total loss! It's just a matter of how much you're willing to put into it to have it in the condition you want! Actually, that one looks pretty good for it's age. I've seen much, MUCH worse! Best of luck!

She got me home

Well....I try not to think about the cost. It's not unlike other hobbies one might have....if you really love something cost is not too much of a consideration. When finally got into the driver seat...ready to start 1600 miles of driving....I told the old gal (maybe that's her New name) I'm here to rescue get me home and I will take care of you. She upheld her part so I (also, the wife) we intend to fix her up like new. We've started the process by doing a complete clean job inside....completely gutted the living room area....tore out all the old carpet. She looks better already. Much Much more to do.

Other than some paint peeling over the front windshield, that is a nice paint combination with the stripes. Have fun getting her squared away and hope to see you at one of the north GA. rallys in the future.

Argosy MH restore

I'll take your advice Glen and start another thread.... seeing how much there is to do with this MH I would guess I will be writing about ...and asking alot of question before I get done with her.
Thanks everyone for all of your advice.... I will try and post pictures as I make my way through the overhaul/ repair process
