To expand slightly on Peter's comments, one of the best ways for everyone to keep track of what's going on is to have a main thread where you discuss your project, or in your case projects. I would highly encourage you to start a thread on your 325 and a separate thread for your new purchase. Keeping your questions and discussions limited to fewer threads makes it easier on everyone to follow what's happening. I wold also suggest that you start your main threads in the appropriate areas. Your 325 thread should be in the Classics area and if you're buying an Argosy then start a thread in the Argosy section.

I've been on Airforums since 2003 and by far this is one of the few forums where most everyone gets along with everyone else probably because we have a common interest. Discussing politics, religion or any other hot button social topic isn't needed or necessary. I come to Airforums for one main reason, the discussion of Airstream motorhomes and trailers and to find answers to my questions (of which I have many!). Over the years I've gotten to know several of the members personally and have been enriched by the experience.

Maybe everyone needs to take a step back and start over. With that in mind....

Hi, my names Brad and I have a 1974 Argosy that I've been working on for more years than I care to admit. Someday I might even finish it


Brad

Back to zero, perhaps.

My bad for over reacting to what I perceived as a group attack on me.

I confused the small group of valued persons in this forum by listing two possible MH without being specific enough for you to see them as different.

Then I was attacked and I responded in a not so nice way.

I understand that now with the help of David B. and others.

I want to rejoin the community as a good member, as I'm trying to buy as many AS MH as I possibly can. And that could be a lot.

I love these things. Only want to restore them to great working shape and/or redo the interiors to modern mid century design.

Again, I'm here, going to try and contribute as I learn. My 325 is still got a lot of work to do which I am working on, try to find the best service people in Austin TX.

Hopefully this is a step forward here.

Robert

Robert,

Like you said, we are a small group of folks. Maybe 10 or 15 at most. So naturally we all know each other and read every classic MoHo post. The fact that you would be crazy enough too want to buy more than one right off the back... Most of us take a year or two before we are crazy or sick enough to want to buy another one!

So may I suggest;

Start a thread for the 325 you have. NAME THE 325 so we know which moho you are talking about when you post outside of your thread. Add lots of pictures so we can see what you are talking about.

Be patient. Dont try to get to into more than one classics until you know what you are dealing with. unless it has a solid pedigree... Someone on the forums who has document everything, else wise you could loose your shirt.
Mine looked great in the add. It looked OK when I went to see it. It looked like a nightmare when I started disassembling it.

It normally takes $20K to restore a classic to where is was 25 years ago. That is if you do allot of the work yourself. Even more if you don't.

If you are serious about the misunderstanding on everyone's part, I would PM BKahler and make amends. He is the guru of all things mechanical.

Good Luck and start your own thread with Pics!!
