Thanks for forwarding your copy. I can still send mine if you need them. I'm not going to be at home for about half a week so I can do it when I return, they are all on my home pc

Patrick, welcome to Airforums! There aren't a lot of 20' Argosy owners out there so welcome to the small club

The manuals Nick pointed to are pretty much all that is available for the 74 Argosy. Airstream did create an owners manual for the 74 model year but it's not all that great. I could probably copy mine if you don't have one of the Owners manuals.

By all means post more pictures of your Argosy and tell us more about it.

Brad

I have a question. This has nothing to do with owners manuals...but I have a 77 argosy MH and am wondering if you could recommend what types of batteries it needs? i know it needs two. Thanks in advance!

How about starting a new thread and posting pictures of your 76. I've got a 74 20' and Martin has a 75 20' but I don't know of anyone that has a 76 20' so it would be nice to see what differences there might be.

By the way, welcome to Airforums!

Brad

Hi Brad, although I say my 20ft Argosy is a 1975 the chassis left the Chevrolet factory in Dec 75, & the body was finished by Airstream in May 76, so in your eyes is this a 75 or 76, hopefully Martin will get to see it sometime this year & may be able to tell me more.

Phil, I'd have to call your's a 76. Model years generally change the fall of each year so by the fall of 76 they would have been selling 77 models.

Mine rolled off the Airstream assembly line in July of 74 and the GM vin indicates it's a 74 model year.

I pulled out the manual this week and it's a 1978 not a 1976 like I thought....will post some pics soon.
W
Also we are in need of the roof air conditioner top and have looked for one for 2 years eith no success. I'm thinking we may have to have someone customize one for us. We never use the AV as we don't need it hete in Alaska but without it eater seeps in. If anyone has a resource I may have not checked out, please let me know.
Thanks
