If you decide to sell this one, let me know. What a beautiful trailer.

We put new axles on the trailer today. We got them from Inland Andy and picked them up at the factory. Got 12" to replace the old 10". Cost $1500.00 about a month ago and waiting for the weather to get a little warmer. Just took my brother-in-law and I 1.5 hours to remove and install with shocks, start to finish, just 8 bolts off and 8 new bolts on. Had to set two of the wheels on just to see what it will look like, won't have the tires till first of July.

It's great when you buy the right thing to start with, it bolts right in as expected, and the end result just looks right.

Good job. Nice way to spend a Mothers Day.

Looking good, I wish I had more time to get mine as far as you have gone in such a short time. Your efforts shine.

Fantastic work, I just found this thread since it was on "hiatus" before I joined. You're on the home stretch now, and then you'll be able to enjoy your many, MANY hours of labor.

Looks great!

Hope you folks will be giving tours of your Argosy - it's so beautiful!

WOW WHAT A PAINTED LADY!!!!!

Get to work Marvin - you have lots to do still....and since we are free now tee hee without any work to do before we leave - save Peter doing the Forms for the new garage this weekend - if there is anything we can help with next week let us know.


We are heading out on vacation August 9th So we will see you "Down the Line"

Will probably end up at the Region 1 Rally possibly for the weekend any way.

She looks real spiffy I would be real proud to park right next door.

Guess I will have to get trimming our tree branches back now eh????
