I found any attempt to discuss axles usually falls on deaf ears. That was my experience with the 28ft we bought. They maintain that the trailer pulls like a dream, and of course they will. But thats why the end caps split (I guess) and rivets come loose. I did manage to talk him down from 5k to 3.5k over a period of a couple of months. Knowing what I do now (and thats a limited amount) I would not have bought it.
Replaced the rear floor (its a centre bath so not the biggest issue)
Replaced the copper with Pex
Installed Town Water supply Inlet
Installed Town Power inlet
Repaired cracked Plastic endcaps
Replaced all window seals/gaskets
Re-sealed many seams
Cleaned, cleaned and cleaned again.
Re-built the bed in the rear.
All jobs that I was not aware I would have to undertake.
OK then, I probably would have bought it because its the most fun I have ever had doing DIY, not that I ever did much before this. I have spent more on tools that the Argosy cost me!
So the moral here is be prepared to do a lot to your Argosy that you are currently not aware of, including the axles.
Best of luck and please keep us updated!
A wise man once told me he wanted to stay fit enough to run a marathon on his hundredth birthday. Another said he wanted to be shot by a jealous husband on his, I'm with the latter. God bless you Richard.
