1978 Argosy 6.3M Minuet Renovation

Just started the long process of renovating our new addition. The Coosa board has been ordered for the new subfloor; the A/C unit been taken off in preparation to getting her into our neighbours garage. Let the carnage begin!

While interior disassembly commenced today, my wife found this little bit of dealer confidential literature.

Cheers

Update time

Argosy is completely gutted, with lower interior panels removed. Coosa subfloor material has arrived and been cut into installable pieces.
I've decided not to do a shell off subfloor replacement, so I removed the front and rear pieces of curved subfloor and about 8" of the next pieces. I also cut a one foot slot up the middle, in order to add some more steel bracing to fasten floor down too.

The frame in in really good shape, with almost no rust from the wheels forward. The rear section, under the bathroom had more rust, but outriggers and main frame in good shape. I used rust converter and POR-15 the frame.

Question. The flooring material in my motorhome was 5/8" plywood. The subfloor material in the Minuet is only 1/2". Should it not be 5/8"? Is the C channel a different size than Airstream trailers?

Cheers
