Aerowood - thanks so much for the post!!! maybe there is an Argosy wheel cover hiding out there? have you seen any broken Argosy trailers on their place? even if no, would be interesting to go out and scout it out.

I am diffidently going over there as they are only about 15 blocks south from the house. I have a full day planned for Friday as I have my FAA medical in the AM, and was planning on going down to the aluminum dealer to buy the interior aluminum for the new endcaps and sidewalls. I will keep an eye out for your covers. PM me with a # in case they do.

Kip

I'm going to see if I can figure out our schedule for tomorrow or Saturday, as I would really like to see this place. Unfortunately, we are not nearly as close as it sounds like you are.

In case I can't and you can, I will attach a pic of the Argosy wheel cover here. (as soon as I find it again) There look to be several items we might be interested in from their list. Have they had this type of sale before? Have you been? Do you think they have reasonable sale prices? We just spent our allowance (large ticket) on upgrading axle, so have to be careful. Thanks, Kip

Well. we got out to the sale on Saturday around noon. There was not a lot there. One guy in garage area where sale was held said they had quite a bit yesterday??? He didn't know about future garage sales. Can't say their garage "sales" were much of a sale with prices I saw. Asked about bargaining (that's my idea of a garage sale) and the answer was "no". Hmm. Oh, well, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I got there around noon Fri and it was already picked thru pretty good. I agree on the prices. I was looking for wheels and they were gone by the time I got there

Hey Aerowood, so...not much noon Friday either....hmmmm. Oh, well, liked looking at some of the trailers parked out in lot.

What kind of wheels are you looking for. When we got our spare tire, we needed a wheel and I bargained a bit w/Big O Tires. Got a steel spare tire wheel (nothing real special looking, but matched what is on trailer) for right at $40. Another place you might do well is Paris Tire over on Oneida. Thats where we got our new Maxxis tires and I think we did well - 2 new tires for $198. Talk to Jeff Stone there, if interested.

We must have just missed you Kip! We got there about 12:45-1:00 on Friday. We found a big box in the back that once we looked inside under all the crummy comforters had a treasure trove of 50's "guts". We snagged 7 drawers with the cool shaped birch handles that match Birdy's...we got all of them and a vent stack that is similar to ours all for $25. They weren't marked so we just asked and they said the drawers were 5-bucks a piece or if we took all of them "they'd make a deal"...so we made the deal.

Overall, things were a bit picked over by then...but we drove away VERY happy! We'll use the drawers (at least some of them) for under our new beds which we hope to get started on soon...possibly over the holiday weekend. Timing was good...

Shari
