The 1988 models had the highly sought after faux wood accent trim!

That paint scheme started in 1989.

Wow, this seems like a pretty good deal.
I suspect that this is a scam ad. The picture looks vaguely familiar, and the added punctuation in the title is typical of other Craigslist scam ads that I have been seeing recently. My apologies to the seller if I am wrong....

I'm with you on this. I too have seen that picture before on this site somewhere.

If it sounds too good to be true..........be careful out there.

Cheers
Tony

The location is just a few miles from my house. I wrote the "seller" but never got a reply. There is a special place in Hell surrounded by overheating 454's for those scammers..

Looks like a close sister to my 1989 345.
I'm interested in the white door on the curb side. Looks like a new waterheater door. And what a better place for the waterheater. The amount of water spent getting hot to the kitchen sink or shower for that matter from the drivers side is too much.

Bummer that scamming on the internet is so popular.
That would be a nice deal otherwise, clean looking coach.

Surrounded by overheating 454s, ha too funny! But appropriate!

Cheers Richard

That's an Atwood furnace door on the curb side.

The early 20ft that Dane came close to buying is listed again.

I know Dane walked away because of rust, but not sure how bad it is?

Martin, have you talked to Dane about his thoughts on this Argosy? Shipping two 20' Argosy motorhomes to the UK would be the same as shipping one 40' Seavans

I thought about it for about 10 milliseconds then realized it is not a job for me! If I was to attempt a chassis swap I would start with a longer unit (like the donor I have), and make the frame and body fit a chassis close to a 20ft - seems easier to remove metal to get something to fit rather than adding it!

Would be call, especially if using one of these as a base.

If I was 10 years younger and didn't have any other projects hanging out there I'd love to tackle a project like that. Unfortunately those days are long gone and I'm just hoping to finish everything on my plate before it's to late

Anyone can feel free to PM me about any questions if they are interested in that 20ft Argosy. Overall it wasn't just the rust but a myriad of things. Pretty much all the windows had signs of leaking water for a long duration. Inside was way worst than the pictures actually show and the subfloor was completely rotted under the driver and in several other places. Overall it isn't a bad buy if you want to do a complete restore but was more than I was looking for. Definitely not in "Good shape" though .

-Dane
