1979 Argosy Minuet 24'

Hi again everyone!

Can't help myself, had to start a thread to let you know that I now have photos posted of our little treasure. Please feel free to email or post comments or suggestions - we could use all the help we can get. We're going to clean her up, test everything, pack up all of our gear and take our first camping trip in a week.

Looking forward to replies!
Tracy, Ron, and Will

Greetings Tracy!

You really have a nice find on your hands. You are very fortunate that it came with the optional spare tire mount and cover - - the alternative is struggling with a place to store the spare - - a none too pleasant process. It looks to be VERY original, I too wonder about the countertops and upholstery - - but one brochure that I have shows the fabric in a different color so it very well may be original - - the countertops may be a special order feature, as all of the brochures that I have show solid colors for the countertops with the exception of what could best be described as a gold speckle design.

Again, congratulations on your find!
