Manuals?

I've tried a Google search and, while I found some interesting stuff, didn't find a source for Argosy owner's or parts manuals. Can they be ordered somewhere?

Also, on another board I was on for Apache owners there were pds files of owner manuals that other members had scanned for anyone's use. If there is something like that here, I haven't found it.

I spend a lot of time on the forums and other sites looking for old to older manuals... but the Argosy Manuals are hard to come by... In fact I have never even seen a Argosy Sales Brouchure? Did they have one?

Airstream "service" manuals are available.

They are close enough to use as a reference manual for an Argosy.

Parts manuals have never existed and I doubt that they ever will.

If you are looking for manuals, you can get reproductions from Secretarial Services, PO Box 484, Sidney, OH 45365 (937) 492-8885. High quality reprinted Service and Owners' Manuals are also available from the Airstream Store at Airstream, Inc :: Home look under books -- that page has some error for me at the moment.

Member overlander64 has scanned some Argosy brochures. They're in his photo gallery at http://www.airforums.com/photos/brow...c=3178&userid=

We got a manual with our 76 Argosy, I could copy it for someone for the cost of the ink, paper and postage.

Not necessarily going to help you in the Argosy dept, but others looking at this thread may benefit -

The VAC has some manuals and other documents posted online in pdf format.

Like Andy said they are close enough/they used most of the same stuff in both. I ordered my Service Manual direct from the factory . It gives every part and part number and compete wiring diagrams. Its priceless

My mistake that was only a thread of scanned weights of trailers from the manual. I'd be happy to scan in my manual, but I do not have anywhere to host it online. The manual I have is a 1973 Argosy since a 1972 does not seem to be available.

Place to store scanned manuals

You might contact Forest over at Airstream.net (which is the VAC site) and ask him if he would be interested in storing them with the rest of the manuals on their site. You could send them via E-mail to Forest and he could upload them if he felt they would be beneficial to the members.

I may be able to obtain a pdf copy of one from Whitelight. He has posted parts of the manual here before.
Skip, if that does not work out, I will be in touch. It could be scanned and sent as an email attachment, but it would be nice for others if it was on the web.

No problem. Just pm me and I'll scan it in. I'm not saying I'll do very quickly, but I will do it.

Thanks man,
John
