looking for a 20 footer

I'm looking for a 20 foot Argosy motorhome.

The intention is to transplant the body to a 7.3 diesel 4x4 Ford Excursion Chassis. Drivetrain condition is not important. Obviously happy to travel, but a southester find would be great.

We've been pondering a body swap for our 1977 24 footer for a while, and it has been discussed here: Body Swap on a 24 Argosy

Any leads are appreciated;

Call or Text us at 321-Three Four Five- 6458
or send a PM

Thanks,
Mike

Not sure if you are on the Argosy Owners FB group but someone on there has just bought a rear bath and maybe selling on their rear bed.

A 20 foot Argosy MH is sitting on the NORTH side of Interstate 40 West (on your right when heading West) about 10-15 miles WEST of the Memphis TN after crossing the Mississippi River bridge on I-40 West into Arkansas. It's been sitting there 25+ years. Easy to see from the interstate when you look for it.

I always think about stopping and asking about it to see if it can be bought however never seem to make time to stop and do so when traveling through Arkansas on I-40. I am sure that time & sitting has not been kind to this old Argosy 20 ft MH.

Probably not convenient to you to go look for it however you may have friends in the Memphis TN area or a member of the Airstream community that would be willing to check it out for you.

I am 3 1/2+ hours away so I'm out on checking on it for you!

I appreciate heads up like that. I'll be driving across country this summer and will search and seek.

Question: Do you remember if it is before or after the westbound truck parking (rest area?) ?
Or is it west of the exit for Lehi?

Back in 2009 I passed that Argosy probably 50 times (25 round trips] as I moved our belongs from Arkansas to Kentucky. At one point we pulled up to the driveway so we could get close up pictures. It's a shame it's been sitting there for so long. I'm thinking its within 30 miles of the Tennessee Arkansas border on I-40.

It would be nice if you could rescue it.

Found it on Google Earth.
Looked up the Platt on the Property appraiser's' website.
Left a message with the owner of the property.
Hoping they call us back.

Brad, do remember anything about it? I'm really just needing a body, but it would be nice to know what it is.......

I have the owner's names (2) and addresses, but can't get any response. They live in a different state.

Keep me in mind if anyone has a lead on a 20 footer. Non-running is prefered, A body is all we need.

I had someone find this post and contact me about a non runner in Oregon.
He called me sunday night, I said I want it.
He said he would send pictures after work Monday.
Could not reach him Monday, already sold.
They don't last long.

It appears the one in Arkansas is a 24.

We are still looking for a 20 footer.
