Rear Bumper Replacement

Just purchased a 1978 Argosy 28. Starting to make all necessary repairs to make it road and camping worthy. Rear bumper is seriously damaged and need to find a replacement. Does anyone know of any Argosy being "parted out" or where I might be able to find a bumper? Also, what was the set up for the spare tire. Was there a fabricated bracket that slipped into the rear hitch? Thanks!

Hiya Matt.. I don't know who may have originally supplied A/S with the bumpers, maybe they were made in house....

But the spare tire carriers are a simple setup consisting of two steel plates, one on the face of the bumper, one on the backside, that are held together by four long carriage bolts/lock nuts/nuts... sorta squeezing the bumper. On the outer steel plate is welded a piece of square tube, about 3 feet tall, and to this there is bolted another plate that the spare wheel itself bolts to.

I bet you can get a "universal bumper mount spare tire carrier" at just about any RV supply house, Farm and Fleet, Tractor Supply, etc...

There's a company.. "Briz Bumpers" they may be able to guide you in the right direction..I mean, they may know where the original style bumper material is available.

Briz makes some cool ribbed bumpers, though... I might throw some on my Argosy 28!
