Hey guys! I introduced myself a few weeks ago. I had sold mu Uhaul camper and was in search of an Argosy for my growing family. At the time I had stumbled across an Argosy 24 on Ebay. Looked real nice. I got in touch with the owner. He gave me tons of info and sent lots of pics. He agreed to take it off Ebay and let me come look without obligation to buy. Only problem was, he was in Michigan and I was in NC. I had to work the weekend we were talking but had the following weekend off. I slept on the idea and decided what the heck, a road trip would be fun. Worst I would be out would be gas money. The wife and kids had prior obligations, so I invited my father, a long time camper owner to ride along.
I ducked out of work early on Friday and we hit the road just after noon. Here we are pulling out.
We drove straight through to Michigan and got to the state line around 11:00 pm.
Stopped off at the Flying J plaza in Detroit and bought a few hours of sleep in the truck. Upon daylight we got breakfast and knocked off the last hour or so of the drive. 679 miles door - door.
Here is the Argosy!
I spent about three hours talking and going over the camper and all the problem areas I have read on here. He had it two years and had done a lot of work. Paint obviously, New tires, brakes, wheels, all roof vents, ahd repaired a rotten front floor section - Well I might add. Replaced front couch area, new seals all around... the list goes on and on. He did it for himself and did it right. Circumstances changed and he had to sell.
Obviously I liked what I saw and had come a long way, so we made the deal and hitched up (new hitch, sway bar and load bars included in sale) and headed back to NC.
Here we are stuck in Detroit traffic for an hour.
Stopped at this little airport along the way in Ohio for photos
Stopped at the Ohio/WV border Saturday night and camped. It was great!
Made it back home Sunday around 3:30.
Trip went great! Camper towed awesome! And I could not be happier. A few small things left to do but I Love my new Argosy!! Happy to be part of the group! I'll post inside shots later.
