Quite the contrary Andre, you finally have come to your senses and discovered the best that AS made. Welcome to the wonderful world of motor homing. I think the 20' is the cutest motor home ever made and can hardly wait to see what you will do with it. What plans does Susan have for the interior?

Who needs reservations. If your a member of this forum you already have a assigned room in the aluminitus wing. Nice Argosy.

Not certain right now, thinking of a cork floor to help with the sound deadening. Trying to think of a theme...

Talking Argosy Peanut

Just read your post, we're excited to see what magic you work with the Peanut. Like the idea of cork, definately strip that wood grain contact off the stove.

Symptoms of Aluminitus?

What are the symtoms of chronic Aluminitus? I think it's catching and there's no imunization, I've heard that boondocking can help!

Balrgn Nice Argosy but it looks cold outside, come to Texas

Balgrn: Just line "Peanut" with rubber and you'll have your own mobile rubber room and won't need any reservations. Congratulations on your new Argosy!

Welcome to "our world", where not only do you have the coach stuff to worry about you also have all the chassis mechanicals! Its a rewarding and interesting challenge. But when you go cruisin' its a blast.

Thanks, got a pretty good handle on the mechanics, restored my 62 Impala and the 58 Case front end loader for practice.

Great find in that little thing! The engine compartment looks like it will shine after your experienced care to it. My '81 28' had electronic ignition added and I painted the air cleaner (woohoo). Then had headers and new exhaust. Sounds great! Replaced starter with a mini. Never stopped cranking from heat! Interior was kept original except for personal touches here and there. Are you gonna paint or strip that baby? Alcoas and electric mirrors would look super. Even your cockpit looks better than mine! I like the ceiling glass, but not as much storage.
Only thing that I don't like about the convertible sofa is that it's too short for me, and my two boys have the twin beds so I gotta sleep there.
Well, good luck and have fun with the project. By the way, you may want to shorten the sewer pipe a little so it doesn't stick out so far...has kept me from breaking it numerous times after the first break.
