Monster Argy!

Judy, Maybe Bob could make up a triple axle frame and buy several junker Argosies for ribs and panels and you guys could build a "Custom Argosy 30 footer!" Now that would give you plenty of room to camp!!! You can design an interior and window set-up so that the full bath w/ separate shower and dining room could be incorporated into your floor plan. Don't forget the maids quarters. Your thoughts on this project? Ed

Can anyone who has had their Minuet painted give us an estimate of the cost?

This past spring I got a few quotes on having my Argosy 28' painted the quotes ranged from $7000-10k. That was to strip and paint with Duron. I since decided to strip and polish mine. I still need the end caps painted this winter but it should;d be considerably cheaper.

Good Luck

Flames aren't my thing, but that's not to say I'm not different! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

The only one it has to please is you! My neighbors thought I was crazy when I said I was painting Christine black, but after I couldn't keep them away!

Good luck, any color you choose will look marvelous! Flames or not

We got our Argosy painted this past summer with PPG Delfleet. Cost was approx $5500.00. This was with me doing alot of the prep work. The paint itself was very expensive. High solids polyurethane base coat /clear coat system.

I doubt that there is any jealousy if it is left in your driveway for more than a day. I love my Argosy but do not expect my neighbors to. Store the thing in a proper storage facility!!!
