We just brought home our new baby last night after driving 600+ miles through huge rain storms...a '77 Arogsy 6.0 Minuet!
This will make good company for our first child Airabelle - our '66 Overlander - and we are very excited about the cool features we are discovering on our Argosy. Look for plenty of questions here in the Argosy sub-forum as we begin to clean it up and bring it back into ship-shape. (Right now the working name is "Rusty", as it is needing a paint job...)
My first question is the obvious one - does anyone have an extra copy of a '77 Argosy manual they would sell me? I may end up buying one from Sec. Services rather than wait til an original shows up on eBay, but if anyone has a copy or an original they do not need I thought I would ask here first. An electronic copy would be acceptable too.
In the meantime, I am SO excited about our new project. So far, I find several differences between the Argosy and the Airstream that I love:
Aluminum Floor (yayyy no more floor rot!)
Easy lift out windows (no more lubing window cranks!)
Metal Furniture (not as warm and luxurious but easy to care for)
Painted Skin (hey, easy to fix any holes or dents and NO POLISHING!)
Less seams on end caps (less time spent sealing!)
Windows - Best view in the campground!
We will be trolling the Argosy forums the next few days as we try to get our new baby ready to hit the road at the end of May. Taking both trailers to SW Pennsylvania for a short trip and will need to learn the ins and outs before we go - thus my request for a manual.
Anyway, enough rambling I've got some reading to do! Will post pics soon, promise...!
(hey, now I can start looking for a cool Argosy Motorhome for trailer number three....my family will kill me....I need help...)
