My stove is a 3 burner, but I bet if your stove is the same width, it would fit.

You can replace the factory bulbs with LED bulbs? Are do you have to replace the whole fixture?

Just ordered some led bulbs from LED for Rv and should get in tomorrow of Thurs. They are a little pricey at $14 each. Bought 12 to do two overhead lights. Will post results

Yes and no, respectively. The bulbs screw right into the factory fixture. The bulbs made for overhead use have the LEDs on a circuit board that you tape to the fixture, pointing down.

I have another order of overhead bulbs and a bulb for the porch light coming today.

One of the reasons I love the Argosy

Lousy picture of the 180 degree oceanfront view through the beloved panoramic windows at Graves Island Provincial Park in Nova Scotia.



And a pretty shot of the trailer at Porters Lake Provincial Park, just outside Halifax Nova Scotia.



Took the trailer on a 2500 mile/16 night trip through PEI and Nova Scotia with 10 nights of no hookup campgrounds. Trailer performed flawlessly, except for a mice invasion and breaking off the switch for the kitchen fan (luckily it was shut off.) 15 mpg out of the van didn't hurt either.

Great pictures! Thanks for sharing. The bed looks so cozy. What a view! Sorry to hear about the mice invasion.

Big smiles back at you Frank. We're delighted with the trailer. It's such a happy, cheery place to be. We're amazed by how well it fits what we need and want in a trailer. And there's nothing like getting thumbs up as people drive by (even if other Airstreams don't wave back)....

Tom

Some more money and work

The Mini took another trip to Frank's Trailer Works. Then it got exiled for two months in the back lot at work until all of the snow melted out of my driveway. Towed it home with a guest tow vehicle from the office:



Got a bunch of stuff done:



Trimetric battery monitor for boondocking trips. (The owners manual reads like my engineering textbooks.)



PEX plumbing. All of the cool kids were doing it.



Got a new tire mount made that lets me fit a full-sized spare on the tongue and still have access to the water fill door. Also improved the propane tank mount to make it more secure.



Also had the underdinette mechanicals cleaned up. Now has 85% less rats nest! (Well, not literal rats nest.) Also has a new fuse box with blade-style fuses - no more glass fuses.

Can't wait to go camping soon!

Tom
