Eric, in 8 to 10 years of watching sales of the Argosy motorhomes I've only seen 2 or 3 come up for sale during that time period.

Your best bet would be to contact that seller in Arizona that has previously listed at least two on ebay.

Brad

From memory even those units weren't 'restored'. No mechanical work was done. At least one was totally gutted.

You're right the interiors were worn original or gutted, yet they still claimed a premium price on ebay. Maybe I need to polish mine...

Anyone know of any?

Thank you
Here is a link to the pictures of the Argosy that has been re-branded as an Airstream.

You can see that the front and rear caps are galvanized steel on all Argosy units. In this case, they are painted gray. The later Airstream motorhomes have aluminum caps.

This is one of the others I saw from Heather. An early model rear bedroom, sold on eBay, from memory the sale was stopped early already way north of $20K.



But it would have taken much more than that to install an interior as it actually had nothing inside.





I remember being told a story that in the last 5-7 years, she had found 5 20ft for sale, had she had bought, polished and sold 3 (on eBay). I suspect the example on Fred's site (simply because of the similarity in the decals) is one of those, but then someone redid the interior and mechanicals.

After digging around a bit I found another 20ft that hdabackintime sold a year ago - this would make 6 in 5-7 years. However this '74 had already had a silver Maaco paint job so she didn't polish.



This one they redid the interior to add some value.





To back up Brad's message seems best approach is to contact Heather Anderson, eBay seller hdabackintime, in Huachuca City, Arizona and see what she can source for you.
