That's one sweet ass Argy Sergei. Your setup will be dripping character all over the roads. Great job!

lookin' GOOD

Looking good Sergei.....
So where are the BIG RED NUMBERS? With all of your high tech skills I expect if you join the wbcci you will invent a laser beam that projects the numbers on the front of the trailer. Red looks good with black and white!
Waiting for more photos.

Skip,

This is a picture of the equipment at the front, on the tongue, taken before the rest of the lower section of the trailer was painted black.

How do I Install an Adjustable Shank on my Hitch??

If you have an adjustable shank on your hitch ball, or knowledge about adjustable shanks, please consider going here to see my question about them.

Any help sincerely appreciated.

Hi...I am thinking about changing the colors on my Argosy (72, 20ft)... When are you going to get on the road? Sorry, so long since last post.

unfolding very nicely

This week Vince helped me pick up the Dorchester Platinum upholstery and install it in the trailer.

It looks good. Iíll take some photos after the interior is cleaned up.

Then we mounted the modified adjustable hitch and moved the Argosy out to Red Oak Park.

After the trailer was spotted there for the season I took the truck to Bill Berkelmansí place.

Over the summer, the final details on the trailer will be completed at Red Oak and the Sprinter deck and ramp system will be built nearby at Billís.

Itís all unfolding very nicely.

Hi Sergei, hope everything is going well and that the Sprinter is coming along.

I thought about you when I saw this set-up from Forum poster "Dimmer." If you had any questions about hauling a trailer with a toad on your deck, he might be able to help you.

Keep us posted on your progress, and hopefully I'll get to meet you (and your trailer of course!) when you make your trek through the Southern USA!

-Marcus

THANK YOU,

Mossyone, Marc, Safari 62, Steve, Lynda, Skip, Mistral Blue, Van, Utee and all others who enjoy following my journey.

I promise to report more often if someone will please send me an OBAMA Ď08 hat.

Lots of bad weather (we had the coldest, rainiest May on record) and other important things to do have prevented me from getting much done on the trailer.

I did manage to make the emblems ready for spray painting. Even that took a couple of hours. Youíll be amazed how much time can be spent on an Airstream renewal.

Sergei
