Jason,

That is the 250s way of saying he doesn't want you to sell it! Anyhow, it will cost you more than a dime. I reckon it is bet to contact the Mothership i.e. Jackson Center. If not, Andy at Inland RV probably has them. Good luck. By the way she looks a beauty from the pictures you sent. Funnt thing about the 250s is that they are all slightly different. Good luck.

Check some windshield companies

sometimes they can drill and stop a crack from extending. If you do need to replace the window hopefully insurance will cover it.

Most any auto glass place can order a new windshield for your unit, I just had one replaced but insurance paid for it and I don;t know how much$$

I had both front windshields replaced recently.....$ 1800.00 w/ labor.
My deductible was $ 500.00 because I told the truth about when they were
cracked & my insurance company treated them as separate incidents.
However, I was very pleased with R.V. Glass Solutions in Oregon, 888.777.6778.
Fresh, clear windshields sure are nice!

Definitely gas. I took a lot of pictures of the engine compartment area as I'm trying to reconstruct our 74 Argosy and I don't know what all I'm missing!

The interior didn't look to bad, its a rear bath mid bed model. Seemed to be structurally sound. AZ RV was doing something with the driveshaft or rear suspension while I was there.

For $5000 I don't think you could go wrong.

If I had a few more bucks than I have, I'd buy it just for parts; my worst fear is to dent a panel.

I know what you mean. We tried to buy a fire damaged Classic motorhome from a guy in Arkansas but he wanted way to much for it. Some people think they are gold no matter what the condition.
