Property Owner

Couldn't you look up the land ownership records in the county seat? GIS records if they are available online would be easy, otherwise, go to the tax office in Estill County to confirm property owner. Possibly use whitepages.com to obtain phone number of property owner.

Doesn't appear to have extensive water damage, which seems unusual to me.

I would love to know the back-story.

Alternative?

Another option might be to move it back into the woods, rent it to a Kentucky version of Walter White, maybe create a Kentucky version of Breaking Bad.

I'm sure there's several things I can do, getting time to do them is more the issue.

I'm going to keep plugging away at it though

My wife seriously wants the front couch. I want the stove/oven and the doghouse upper unit, rear pano windows...............

As much as I'd hate to part it, it doesn't look like a saver to me as it has been parked over grass for too long.

I really do want it for parts. I'd even come down the last week of July and the first week of August to get what we can off her and get rid of the rest.

Cheers
Sidekick Tony

PS I'd have trouble believing that Argosy would make two almost identical Argosy motorhomes in two seperate factories. The S must stand for something else.

We could again use my CAA/AAA to pull her off the mountain. They wouldn't know it was a different Argosy.

Tony,

I would think the couch is the typical fold out couch used in a lot of Airstream trailers and motorhomes. If you're looking for an overhead bin I will likely have one out of mine that I'm not going to be using. The bonus is mine seems to be the same style that's in this 24. Currently I have two overheads and will only need one on the drivers side.

I believe I might have a solution to the transportation problem although I don't know what the cost would be although it should be considerably less than what the typical charge is from the towing companies.

Hi guys,
I think it's waycool that these two Argo's are like twins separated at birth. Without Brad finding "The Last Thing" I probably wouldn't have made the deal with Tony. At least as quickly as it happened... And of course time was not in favor of the Argo I had. It was like on "Death Row" with Slim to None chance of Pardon (and Slim just left town).

In any event, I have news on my old Argo. I stopped by the Garage it's at the other day and dropped off the TV and bracket I had in it when I owned it. The TV is a perfect size for that RV. Plus it's like a Home Theater for two when you swivel the front seats around. Not watching ? Just tilt it up to the ceiling. Pretty much out the way, if you're not tooo tall.
Good luck on getting the "TLT" Argo "out of the woods"

Don

P.S. I love following this adventure from the comforts of home !

Emailed the county Clerk of Estill County, Ms Sherry L Fox and she advises there aren't any online services re: land ownership

So Estill County is somewhere in the late 20th Century tech wise. If you want ownership records, you show up in person.

These pictures remind me of the 79 Revcon 31' Camelot I bought before I found our 345.

Yeah, I just wanted them as spares. I need the front drivers side windshield; hopefully they just pop out as easily as Davejay yipped about. There are a ton of parts on this rig.

Cheers
Sidekick Tony

PS Thanks Don for the TV; I'll be contacting you soon for a little favour as I need to send some stuff to a US address........nothing too big, just a Cummins engine.

The foam core would allow us to mount the exhaust, inlet manifolds, and accessories with turbo attached to check for clearances.

Pricey, but fixing something later on because we guessed wrong would be pricey too. Plus working underneath a 1100 pound engine suspended over your head would have a pucker factor involved.

He stated I could always sell it afterwards. I may keep it for the Cummins install into the 310.
