1978 ARGOSY Minuet

Greetings! I have been in the forums a bit, already, but will lay all of this out as a NEWBY. I retired from the USAF after 20 years of time, in 2011. I just finished my Masters of Landscape Architecture degree from UGA, in Athens, and my family and I are about to change locations, again. After 20 years in the AF, we are used to moving every 2-3 years, but really want to put down roots, badly! So, we bought the AGROSY last month and will be reconditioning it over the month of June so that we can travel the country as I seek a permanent location and a firm to settle down with. The trailer is in Ellijay, GA getting a new floor (I just don't have the time to do it, but it would be a whole lot of fun, I can tell from other posts), and in the mean time I will be designing and building the interior components.

I am well-versed in CAD, Sketchup and Adobe Suites, and am pretty good at hand rendering, also, so I was going to do some interior design and build while the Agrosy is in the shop. When it comes out, I want to screw the cabinets and fixtures into place and then start the journey described above.

I know it is alot to ask, but if anyone has any CAD floor plans I would really appreciate getting them to help the interior design work. Short of that I will scan in the floor plan from the owner's manual, scale it to reference in CAD, trace the linework, then design from there. That could be more work, and probably a little less precise than an "official" or vetted CAD file, though.

So, that is the plan for the foreseeable future, and I hope to see you on the road in a couple of months!
