I am guessing that is just a 1981 28' Excella, pretty much the same as this:

With "Colorado" added as a personal touch.

74 Modified Argosy Motorhome

Quite a interesting little motorhome. It has a unique floor plan that appears to be original from the factory. My 20' Argosy is very close in serial number to this one and my floor plan shows up in the owners manual, this one does not.

The owner did a LOT of work on this Argosy, some of the modifications people may not like and others will. It definitely has an awesome drive train and the owner was very conscientious about keeping it in good running order. It even has a back up electronic ignition system, or at least it did when I looked at it.

If I remember correctly the owner is or was an automotive body designer. My bet is if he said it was tested in a wind tunnel it probably was!

Hey Brad,

I kinda figured you'd get a kick out this one.

On another note could you tell me they correct door lock model for a 1979 A.S. 240?
My 240 has a Bargman L300 lockset, this is not the correct lock for this model year (someone replaced the lock).
The L300 interferes with the screen door and the outer door does not fully close tight against the weatherstripping.

My 79 serial number ends with 001, and I think Airstream continued to use Argosy parts in 1979.

Any help would be appreciated.

Frank

One wonders how someone fried that bullet-proof Isuzu and then replaced it with a crappy 454. Plus the transmission was modified for the diesel, and if that was not replaced, the coach is pretty, but junk.

The 454 is a great unit, not crappy. You are entitled to your opinion, but don't get me started on underpowered motor homes.
