$4k-$8k depending on condition which varies WILDLY. I've had 2 e-mails in the last 2 days about 20' Argosy MH's. I think the 77' models have rear air ride suspension. The 74 would not have rear air-ride.

Thanks for the advice

There might be a couple of us asking about the same Argosy - the guy is a dealer and is pretty firm at $9500. My understanding is with the steel endcaps - you can't polish them, only paint them silver metallic. True?
The best thing about this one for me is, at 20ft, I don't need a parking permit in my city!

You're right about the steel endcaps, as I understand it. That's why argosys are painted.

I think I saw an ad for the one you're looking at (if it's in the NW). I was parked next to one at the Rocky Mtn Rally a couple years ago - they're cute as a button, and almost fit in a regular parking space! I haven't seen many for sale. I'd say if he's firm and you really want it, go haggle your best price out. Good luck!

One just went on E-bay for $3651 Item number: 4615999595
I would question the milage may be 169K??

For more than 4k it would have to be pretty good shape.. (for me anyway)

if you want to polish it out, you can always paint the end caps to match..looks ok a few have been seen that way.
