Yes. Buckle up before asking for a price. Street side and curb side are different parts.

Probably not. It's best to replace the 32 year old toilet and be done with it.

If it's the gasket that goes between the window sash and the outer frame mounted on the skin of the trailer, it is. If you want the gasket between the glass and sash, no.

Not unless you happen to find one in a very old dealer's stock room.

Hi - sometimes you just have to go on faith. When we got our 6.7metre it had a nail in place of the inside door handle. A month later, one of the wonderful members of this forum let me know that he had thrown his in the trash, but would fish it out and mail to us. My pictures in members photo gallery show the before/after. Also, just this last week Argonaut mailed me 3 fridge shelf units after PMing me asking if I still needed them. He apparently saw that I had put them into my pics as a "NEEDED" item. That pic has been there for several years, so I guess patience IS indeed a virtue!!!

Look around for a shop that does vinyl auto trim work. They can likely duplicate the Minuet decals. A photo of the decal with a scale to show size would probably be enough for them to use as a pattern.

Thanks people, I have a friend that will duplicate the decal exactly-wonder how much demand for such an item-how many should I order?

I would be interested in the decals if re-worked to 6.7metre instead of 6.0metre. I would need 2 and need to know cost before I commit. Also, ours are the original orange...is that what you plan to use? You might add this post as a link to my post called "calling all Argosy Minuet Owners "as there may be other Argosy members who are interested but don't see this post. Thanks.

Terry, just to confirm - you can actually buy the front curved windows for a Minuet, if need be? Are side windows available too?

I ask because I'm considering a Minuet (love our T@B, but really want a bathroom) but am a bit wary of getting something that has unobtainium parts like a window. (I'd put a rock guard on it, but still...)

Thanks
Tom

The deep wrap wing windows used on the Minuet are still available from Airstream --- but they will be solar gray tinted rather than the clear that was stock for the Argosy -- beyond that they are the same as the windows currently used in Airstreams with that feature.

When I checked the precise windows utilized in the Minuet were not readily available. There is minimal danger of breakage on the side windows as they are a very sturdy acrylic material. The center front and rear windows are standard Airstream fare and according to my notes should still be available from Airstream -- or since the glass is essentially flat some have taken the frames apart to replace the glass with new tempered glass with good success.

The original wrap windows in the Argosy models were all glass.

Airstream never used plastic in wrap windows.

Perhaps a previous owner used the plastic material.

Plastic in wrap windows has been known to "blow out".
