Original Argosy MH reflectors?

As the completion of my Argosy paint job gets close, I am focusing on some details. My unit had a collection of original and add-on reflectors. The long horizontal reflector is gone. I don't believe the oval reflector is original. I don't currently have reflectors on the side of the rear light bar.

Q1. Are the original reflectors on the rear light bar and rear bumper skirt the same size?

Q2. If you have them, what are the dimensions, make, and number?

I believe this is the original set of reflectors.
Rear light bar - rectangular reflectors on the sides
Rear bumper skirt - rectangular reflectors facing the rear
Front bumper skirt - I don't think there are any reflectors on the front skirt.
Basically I think I need to order reflectors for the rear light bar. Am I correct?

Fred, I think you're right in all of your assumptions.

Where are you going to order the light bar reflectors?

First, I need to find out from someone that has the light bar reflectors if they are the same size as the skirt/apron reflectors. I do have those on the coach. If they are the same, I can look at the manufacturer and number. Right now I think I am only missing the two reflectors on the sides of the light bar. They must just stick on since there are no holes in the unit.

Also, some of the units in my archive have orange reflectors on the sides of the front bumper.

Here is a picture of mine that shows the orange reflector near the front bumper. I am assuming it is original to the coach.

I went back through the stuff that came with my coach and I found the original 1977 MoHo brochure! I don't see a front side reflector. I also found an ad for the 1978 Argosy MoHo that appears to have orange reflectors on the sides of the front bumper.

I my spare time I need to get all of that stuff scanned and up on my site. I also have an original Silver Streak motorhome brochure and the 1978 Argosy trailer brochure. The owner obviously was shopping and saved all of his/her research materials.

My 74 appears to just have reflectors on just corners. The rear are original I think. They say Stratolite No 78 sae-a-67 on them. My fronts were missing but the bumpout with 2 small holes made me think it needed orange up front? I purchaced these somewhere? maybe Pep Boys for like $2 pair? Their holes for mounting were a little off but overall shape fit bumpout perfect. I just used the selfstick that was allready on them.

Here's shots of my '77 24'er at the same position as your shots originally. I took a close-up of the reflector near the tail lights so you can see the model numbers. It measures 3-1/8" x 1-3/8". The reflector at the taillight housing and down at the bumper are the same size / model.
