Our old girl is a 72 26ft and all i can say is rust and rot. We found a rusted out rear frame and rotten floor under the tub and toilet. The trunk area frame was gone too and it was a major job to repair the damage.
Check the plumbing, gas, and electrical components and know what you are getting into.
We had to replumb the entire trailer, replace flooring, counter top and many other projects to bring her back to life.
That being said, we love the old girl and she sure turns heads a the rv parks.
We plan to keep her until one of us fall apart and anyway, she's forty two years old and we are in our sixties. Our plumbing, electrical, and bodies are not all that great either.
Good luck and we think you will have trouble selling yours once you spend the time and effort to get it back on the road again.
Sincerely,
jen & loren silva

It would be nice to see pics of that combination. Would you post them please?

Thanks

Thanks to everyone for the input. There were all the problems mentioned and more when we went to see this one live, so it was a hard pass. The search continues. Thanks again!

You go to "manage attachments" when you create a reply to a thread, its below this box that we write in, and is titled "Additional Options"
You choose "upload file from your computer" and locate the pics and click on them, then hit "Upload"
Done

We have been looking for an Argosy Minuet around 22 to 24 ft. and finding it hard to come by. I had looked at the one that has been discus here but also find the back end looks like it might have problems and the owner would only come down a few hundred. It was bigger then we wonted anyway.
Their is a 24 ft. argosy in Ark. on creglist around little rock that looks nice and clean but just not feeling it. Was told the Refrigerator don't work and tires look good but are four to five years old. So guess we will keep looking, I'm sure their is one out their just waiting for a good home.
