Wow! From the information I've compiled your's is the earliest recorded Argosy motorhome.

Your information means mine is now the 4th oldest known Argosy. Hopefully you'll post pictures of your rig and provide more details.

I'm in the process of trying to resurrect my 20' Argosy so don't be surprised if I ask you a bunch of questions!

By the way welcome to Airforums

Brad

Last week I replaced shag carpet in cabin with some indoor/outdoor stuff. Easy enough as I used old carpet for template.
Next project on my list is slider window schlegle and some broken latches. Not looking forward to it but the old stuff is pretty funky and it needs to be done. Hopefully Inland supplies some directions with schlegle!

Looks to be in pretty decent shape inside and out. The window schlegle isn't hard to install, at least it wasn't on our 84 310. I haven't tried it on the Argosy yet and the windows are slightly different although I doubt they are significantly different.

The brown latches on your interior doors are available from Out Of Doors Mart for about $15 each.

My 1987 345 Air Stream is no longer on the road. On memorial day week end it became road toast. I never thought it would go out that way. But it did. It caught fire in the engine compartment some how. I don't have the seriel number but it one less 345 Air Stream.

James,
We are all sorry for your loss...I don't suppose you could scrape off the charred crust and make a go of it...? In this community such a loss is a sobering thought...m

Redrobin,

From the notes I've been keeping yours is the newest 79 that has been posted to this thread. You need to start a thread and post pictures of your rig.

1991 Airstream 300LE

Brad:

Another one for the database. I purchased in CA in January my 300 LE Classic Airstream motorhome. I am the 3 owner, the second had it for about 8 years. The vin # is 1GBKP37N7L3321239. The number on the metal plate in the engine compartment reads - 1A9JGAP23MJ011320. I called the Airstream in Jackson Center and they said it left the factory on December 31, 1990. I know from the records left in great detail, that the original owner purchased the motorhome new on 10/5/93. In 1994, they had a problem with the engine and Airstream paid for a new engined to be installed which happened on 3/21/1994. The current milage is 79,980, but the engine has 10,000 less on it.

Any information that you can add to the history or the number of 300 models in the database would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim

Jim,

I wish I could help but I've mainly been keeping tabs of the Argosies that get posted here. I spent an evening reading every post and jotting down the Argosy information.

You need to start a thread and post some pictures. The members of this forum really like pictures

Brad
