Rear bath 20' Argosy popped up on Ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/281962810791...0791&viewitem=

Usual story, hardly used, trouble starting, needs work (passenger frontside ding), but offers 'unlimited fun'

I'm almost positive this is the 20' Argosy that used to be owned by Balrgn that he named Peanut.

Sure looks like it's gone down hill since Balrgn owned it. I followed the work he did on Peanut and was always impressed with the quality of the work he was doing. He had turned it into a really nice coach. At the price being asked it should be a bargain. The front skin wouldn't be that hard to repair.

Here's an original shot of the front before the damage.

Dane, you should seriously consider this one.

It is Peanut.....the seller even calls it the same name.

The banana wraps are still available new (heck I have two new ones in my shed!), and the other parts bumper/grill parts, are available. Could even be worth paying the shipping to take whats left of my donor as the (modified) bumper and grill are all intact on that.

So....it definitely is Peanut and Andre (Balgrn) believes the starting issue listed is just normal for starting a 454. Knowing the history I'm not sure I can resist a bid unless Dane or someone who doesn't already have a 20ft steps in!

It's been a while since a 20 has been on ebay other than those from the seller in Arizona. It'll be interesting to see how high this one goes.

Hmmm.....bent and needing parts that are hard to find, seller listing current issues (whether they are or not), back history of an owner that has problems each time they use it ("It would be happiest living with a mechanic or someone with unlimited cash because each visit to the shop has been $2000"), it will be interested to see what it goes for.

I sense someone will get a bargain.

Suspicious looking listing for a diesel conversion in SF (http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/rvs/5493432373.html)



I sure this is the diesel conversion recently sold in Arizona on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/161959155428...c=1&rmvSB=true)

Ive seen pictures of this rig recently. In fact, I thought someone on the forums recently bought it. I remember discussion of the NASA logo on the side.
