Argosy spent the winter in my thoughts, and on a few pots too.
With the simplest intentions of replacing the counter top and looking into a soft spot, i accidentally turned my argosy inside out. This project is daunting & exhilarating & heartbreaking & empowering all wrapped up in an lumpy aluminum skin. And i wouldnt trade it for anything else.
Again... killing me, or making me stronger?

Here is the remnants of the goucho. The slides disintegrated upon removal. Has anyone else done anything similar? Dont want to put wooden slides, looking for an alternative.
Thanks for the direction folks.

P.s. thanks Bex for the parts. Gotta love new old stock. Anyone near alberta needing parts and pieces should take the drive and have a nice visit.

You can go with some 200lb drawer slides from Lee Valley, 200 lb Slides - Lee Valley Tools. I have used their hardware in the past and it is always good, though it may not be cheap. If you are using this on a pull out, you may need to figure some way of locking it so it stays extended or stays retracted, because there will be very little resistance when you move the extension, they are that good.

Cushions against the side wall and board at the front of the gaucho would likely keep it extended, and a piece that makes you lift the front up in order to pull it out would keep it closed. The plastic slides may be unobtanium but you might search the forum to see if anyone has solved that problem. Wood slides are available, but I agree they would be last resort here.
Nice photo of the helpers.

I was looking at your pictures and noted your window protection and was wondering if you had any other pictures of the covering. also details of how it was made or where you obtained it. Since you have been travelling all over the country have you had any issues with it. I need to do something with ours and I was not sure on what to do. Thanks rob

Hello rob. The covering for front windows i made myself. Used the padded covering that is uses on semis to cover the radiator in winter (from a commercial fabric company). The argosy came with the gromet attatchments already installed on trailer, so all i had to do was put the hole part of gromet on the cover. Keeps windows protected while hauling, but more importantly, keeps the sun out and the kids sleeping later.
Will get some closer pics and send them along.
In the mean time, the flooring is in, and putting things back in makes it seem like i am on the final stretch.
