This year, for us, it's the Black Forest, Southern Germany, Italian Lakes, back through Switzerland and France.

They are stock from an Argosy, but not that Argosy. There are actually 5 additional VistaViews, plus 5 extra sliding windows from a 28ft Argosy. You get plenty of light inside!

Plus we removed all the internal partition walls (and install a stand-alone wetroom). So you can see from front to back with no obstructions.

If you note they are still finalizing the approach for fitting/removing without damaging!
I didn't realize they were trying to make it removable. Needless to say I can't wait to see the results of how they did it, afterall I'm not afraid to copy someone else's ideas

Thanks Mike, so far, so good. Just hoping they get the finishing done and everything works as it should for the trip next week.

First photo is especially for Brad



Although I am still trying to work out where the new driving lights have disappeared to!

Bella looks pretty nice all around though

I always associate these motorhomes with NASA so I could resist having the roof done in the Hy-Tech Ceramic 2150, which was first developed for the space industry....just seemed fitting somehow.

Considering how beautiful she is turning out, you should consider naming her something like "Bella"

Martin,
What an impressive overhaul. I especially like the new paint.

I saw somewhere that you discussed your selection of colors particularly the white. Argosy originally used a very creamy looking "white" that was more of a very light yellow/orange tint.

When I bought my 77 in 1978, I bought some touch-up paint from an Argosy dealer and it matched just fine. By the time I did some more touch-up about 1990, the touch-up paint left splotches since the original paint had "faded" to more of an off-white. I really like the white much better than the original paint creamy white.

Your 20 really looks great.
Gregg
