With as many Airstreams as you've been talking about buying you're going to need something more than a "small" plot

I know what you mean. If I tried to implement all of my ideas I wouldn't be able to retire until I was a 150

Ya gotta dream!

There are actually a bunch of salvage and drivable motorhomes from that era on Spartan and Freight Liner chassis that can be had for cheap. Most have a Cummins 5.9 turbo diesel, Allison MD3060 6 Speed, and an Eaton differential. All sized for a 20,000 vehicle.

Mate, you have a masochistic streak a mile wide my friend. Concentrate on getting Bella done first; remember, Classic moho's are just like woman; you go off and have an affair with another piece of aluminum, Bella will make your life, hell on earth.

Cheers
Tony

Martin,

If your 28' donor has either of these fridge vents I would be interested in buying the vent AND the vent frame.

I want to eliminate the solid fridge access cover on my Argosy and replace it with a louvered vent. The early Argosies used grated holes in the floor as the air inlet. I'd rather have a louvered opening if possible.

Brad

I will take a look when I next go to Airstream NE Brad.

I would assume the donor doesn't have them though, as they installed modern (plastic) vent covers for the fridge and would have used original type if they were there.

I'd be curious to know the reason he pulled the auction with one day to go last time. I think the price before being pulled was $19k+.

That is a convertible dinette but not the roto-dinette. That one only folds flat. The front seat just flips back to face the table.

Does make me question the year; in the 1975 manual there is only the mid-bath in 20ft, with the rear bath only appearing in the 1976 model year (at least by the manual). Then 1976 floor plan layout option brochure also shows the dinette as a roto rather than flipper.
