Yes; 6.0, 6.7, and 7.3 refer to the lengths of the coaches in meters. The precise reason why the Minuets were sold in this manner has never been revealed so far as I have been able to determine. The 6.0 Metre Minuet is was typically registered as a 20' coach in the US; while the 6.7 Metre coach was typically registered as a 22' coach; and the 7.3 Metre was typically registerd as a 24' coach.

Metric Lengths

mtnman:

The 6, 6.7 & 7.3 Metre coding was in fact the length designation for these coaches.

6 M = 19.5 feet
6.7 M = 21.775 feet
7.3 M = 23.725 feet

Wow, you've done a good job on the Argosy. I have a 78 24ft Argosy that has those same rims. Do yours have a little orange stripe around them that says Argosy. I see the banana wrap is blue, mine is orange. I've wanted to get an Airstream ever since I sold my 67 Caravel; however, I have fallen in love with the Argosys and can't imagine having anything else. Love what you've done to yours.

i stayed in Raysville, Ga Tuesday night. Pulled in after dark. I had the whole lake CG to myself. The pics show us about 25 feet from the waters edge.
We got to Fla yesterday and had a down pour this afternoon. I have 3 rain leaks I need to repair. I also found a couple plumbing leaks which will be an easy fix.

So cute. You have done a great job. Wish I had some rain here in Oklahoma to check for leaks. I'm just busy guarding my Argosy from the wild fires. Got the sprinkler ready for 40+mph winds tomorrow. Have fun down there.

We are finally doing what we like to do, camp and ride dual sport motorcycles. We got to ride about 80 miles of forest roads today in the Apalachicola National Forest about 25 miles south south of Tallahassee. There is a group of dual sport riders here that organized this ride. We are camped in a YMCA camp. Camping cost $8.00 per day per person and includes 2 meals a day! I will try and get some more pics tomorrow of this place. There are about 30 people here with bikes. I will be back home working on the AS project by Tuesday.
