Show me yours (if you can)

I happen to have, I believe, all of the original paperwork for my Argosy. Including receipts for purchases and upgrades over the years. Here is the original window sticker (not sure which window it was stuck to). Comments welcomed.

Ouch! Given the quality of the speakers that came in my 1983 Excella, $40 would be too much in 2013 dollars.

However, the white sidewall tires and deluxe wheel covers don't look too bad. (I realize that these would be upcharges over the basic equipment.)

Wonder what the convenience group consists of?

Very cool. I don't have anything like that.

I'm not sure what's included with the convenience package. Nice job on your speaker changeover. Did you get a small subwoofer after all? I'm still rocking the factory 8 track AM FM radio. The dials are a bit touchy, and it's hungry for every fourth 8 track that gets played.

Well, sort of. Maybe not exactly. I put in a 10" polkaudio subwoofer powered by a JVC KS-AX4302 100 watts RMS x 2 amp. I built a box from cabinet grade ĺ" plywood that fits in the credenza below the new JVC KD-AHD79 iPhone compatible stereo. I need to do a new thread, but just haven't gotten around to it.

I also added a couple of speakers in the ends of the kitchen cabinets with a switch to choose between them and the bedroom speakers. This gives me good sound in the living area. Works great for TV too. I run the TV sound in through the rear aux inlet. Not surround, but movies (like The Blues Brothers, for instance) sound great.

Airstream's Archives. The curiosity got to me. Based on that info, I think the original purchaser may have been charged double for the LP tanks!

It does look like it. I wonder if there was a difference in the Convenience Group for the Argosy vs. the Airstream?

That is the Convenience group for the Airstreams. They didn't list the Argosy's, but I imagine it shouldn't be far off.

Just went to pick up my 1972 26' Argosy today, and the owner had all the manuals. Going to look them over tonight. Will post pics later.
