Since my original contribution in 2008, more shots of the “customization” of a 1976 ARGOSY:

Attachment 189359

World’s only “diesel-powered” Airstream?

No propane. Tongue space used by the compressor for the LG “Art Cool” residential/commercial split air unit. Small aluminum box below houses the WEBASTO diesel furnace. Hydronic heating for water and space. Inside, warm, radiant heat moved by virtually soundless 12v fan blower units.

Brilliant Pepper White and Black two-tone paint scheme matches Mini Cooper traveling companion.

Attachment 189361

Custom built control panel. 110 v LG fridge runs on shore power or 1500 w inverter. LG Art Cool AC cools space soundlessly. Pantry pulls out. Custom sliding door to rear bath. Dimmable pot lamps throughout coach.

Attachment 189362

Pull out desk in mid ship office. WEBASTO diesel cook top in black ceramic. IKEA cabinetry through out, weight-reduced. Aluminum backsplash, Marmoleum counter top.

Attachment 189360

Rig on the road in Northern Louisiana as the dogwoods came out.

Attachment 189363
CONCERTO ceramic home style commode by Dometic. IKEA cabinetry.

Attachment 189364

Loaded for the road. Note the custom made canvas rock protectors.

Attachment 189365
New Zip Dee awning. Note salvage window retrofitted in door.

Hi, I might have said this before, or something like it, but you have done a fantastic job and have been extremely creative.

Thanks Aage and Bob. Always appreciate hearing from you....

I forgot this snap in the last post:

The sink that I was so proud of, created out of a $19 IKEA salad bowl, didn't work out in the end and was replaced a couple of years ago by a similar vessel sink in glass. Don't have a photo at the moment.

Aage, your question about why I've decided to sell is answered here on my main thread, post #702:

Thanks again for your nice words.

Hi from AZ. . . We got a tour of Sergei's Argosy at Springstream and in person, it is REALLY cool. The whole package is so well thought out. I hope the buyer will use it frequently. Regards, Craig
