'79 Argosy project

Do I need to keep going back to my original thread every time I want to share something with you folks or just start a new one with the new subject?

Any way I got my toilet perch built today, check out the pic!

Some folks start a dedicated thread to report ongoing restoration. But if you have a specific issue you can start a new thread about it... for example: if you need info on replacing or repairing pluming, you might post a new thread about it in that sub forum. It's always a good idea to do a search first to see if someone else has encountered your problem and posted answers. You can also post on a thread that someone else has started - provided it's on the same general topic.

Hope this helps. Nice pedestal , by the way.

Thanks Janet! That helps clear that up. I have about 5 different threads in the All Argosy forum, I will stick with one subject.

You may want to consider putting your topical threads under the sub-forum they are best related to, not just all under Argosy. The reason is it will get many more viewers (both Argosy & Airstream owners) with the potential of answering your question. Even though the outside appearance is different Argosy interiors & systems have many of the same 'issues' (ie. electrical, plumbing, restoration, etc.) as Airstreams, in many ways they are identical. If you post in just Argosy, some Airstream owners will never look there. If your question is something only Argosy related, place it in the Argosy section.

Y'know, I'm old enough to remember outhouses, and that's just about the fanciest one I've ever seen! It IS, big enough to make it a two-holer, y'know... where's the Sears and Roebuck catalog gonna go?

Nicely done pedestal!

Hello Mtnman,

Nice Argosy! It looks familiar!

I think you and I have the only minuet 7.3 metres on the forums.

Did you replace the black tank when you did your plumbing work? I had to replace mine last year. I had to get one fabricated, Inland RV didn't have a good match in stock.

Scott,
I did not replace the black water tank. It was in real good shape. I did clean it out good once I got the waste valve replaced. All works good with no leaks. I did not realize that there were so few minuet 7.3 metres?

The Minuets had the shortest production run of any of the Argosy coaches -- late 1977 through 1979 model years. The 6.0 Metre was the most prolific Minuet (based upon observations at various WBCCI and Forums Rallys); while the 6.7 Metre wast the next most popular; with the 7.3 Metre being the lowest production of the three. Thus far, I don't believe that there has been anything other than Minuet 6.0 Metre coaches at the WBCCI International Rallys that I have attended -- I don't recall seeing any 7.3 Metre Minuets at any of the International Rallys that I have attended (1989-2005). In part, I suspect that these numbers may relate to when each of the coaches was introduced -- based upon the sales literature that I have, the 6.0 Metre was the first to be introduced followed quite closely by the 6.7 Metre, and the 7.3 Metre was introduced quite a bit later -- possibly not until late in the 1978 model year (I haven't been able to confirm precise introduction dates for each of the Minuet coaches). As with Airstream, finding specific production numbers for any of the Argosy coaches is extremely difficult at best.

What does the 6, 6.7 & 7.3 stand for? Is that the lenght of the coach?
