I'm familiar with this fire damaged Classic. The seller left out the the fact that it's been water damaged as well. I'm also not convinced that he drove it after the fire damage. Based on the damage I saw I done think it could have been driven.

The inside is pretty messed up and the skin, inner and outer has been warped. Not sure how much of the glass I would trust due to the amount of heat damage.

It would be a good source for some parts like the drive train and any exterior parts that weren't close to the heat.

Looks like Larry Hagman's 1984 Airstream is back on eBay again...

I think old Larry came back from the dead, polished her up real good, revamped the interior and added a lot of bling and lights; the last time I saw Larry's AS for sale on Ebay, it didn't look at all like this, not even close; just check out the interior pictures.

http://www.icollector.com/Larry-Hagm...Home_i17179840

I'm also chuckling at the $100,000 of solar panels that Larry added on......

I'm hoping he gets the 250K for it and more, as this just means the paltry 50k I want for mine is a screaming deal.

Cheers
Tony

Nice looking 74 Argosy 24' motorhome that appears to be in pretty decent shape overall. Doesn't sound like it's been ran for about 20 years would could make it somewhat of a challenge

Front driver side wheel might be rusty.

I don't think you want to drive it with deflated airbags.

There are a few threads on this forum about replacing the airbags. I have read a few since I need to replace the leaky bags on my '88 345. It sounds like to the bolts at the top of the airbag are the most challenging part of the replacement process. I think I recall reading that someone cut holes in the floor above them to gain easier access.

Good luck.

here are a few links to get you started

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311...ome-55548.html

If you Google "airforums motorhome rear air bag replacement". You will get several hits. Might want to read through a few of those and it should give you some idea what is involved. I havent needed to replace mine (yet) so Im not sure on the cost but the parts are readily available. You will have better luck looking under the "mechanics corner" in the motirhome section of the forums for this type of info.....good luck!

Agreed, I've driven a 310 that had deflated air bags (not by choice!) and the ride was horrible and I'm fairly certain not good on the chassis.
