Darel,

I've been down the path you're contemplating. It's not an easy task breaking apart one of these motorhomes. If I hadn't had a backhoe with a front end loader it would have been almost impossible. If you're serious about parting it out I would post an ad in the classified section. I got quite a few responses that way.

Good luck.

Brad

Hi,
I could use the drivers side al extrusion that holds the vertical seal. This part is attached to the immobile piece of glass. Like a vent window. I'd attach a picture if I knew how to.

Why not try to sell it as it is?

Wouldn't it be worth more as it is? Just wondering.....

In an earlier posting I said I needed the drivers side window extrusion. I may have been drinking.........It's the curb side I need.
Sorry

It is for sale as is but it is not selling and while setting for sale it has been vandelized. I could put $1000 into it to replace the broken windshield but I don't think that it would get me anymore money for it.
I had an offer of $1000 as it sits. That guy wants to part it out also.
For just the engine, tranny and generator I could get $1000. Those could be used by anyone. The Argosy parts are the ones that going to be more difficult to sell.
I will leave it for sale through the Winter then next Spring I will start dismantaling it.

I have a 1977 in good condition.

I am interested in Stairs, if complete, and aluminum panel to the right of entry stairs.
