Hi folks,This seems like a pretty cool place with a lot of knowledgable people. If it's like a car forum I'm a member, this place will be awesome for info, and a possible place for new friendships
This thread will have a lot of questions in it, and I appologize if I ramble a bit. I'm really excited about my new find
I've read a number of the threads here, but it doesn't seem like many people own Argosy trailers. Is this because so few were sold, or what? Just curious ...Anyhow, a few weeks ago I bought a 1986 Argosy 33 front kitchen model. An older couple had it sitting at a campsite for many many years. They kept it up really well (fortunately for me). They even put new tires, battery charger, battery, and tank valves on it before they sold it. As a point of reference, and to query what you think of my "deal", I paid $4450 for it, then had the wheel bearings inspected, clesned, & repacked, and the brakes cleaned & adjusted before I hauled it off.Speaking of hauling, I have a Dodge Ram 2500 wiyh the Cummins deisel, 4:10, rear, 4 speed automatic w/ overdrive. Thid truck has a utility body on it and scales at 8040 lb.'s by itself (19 MPG highway). I've already taken this thing on a couple short jaunts, and have averaged 12.2 - 12.4 MPG with it. . I'm curious as to what kind of fuel mileage people are getting?Another question, I was told by Airstream that this is a 4 season trailer with limitations. What kind of weather can I expect to be able to still use the utilities in as far as the water/holding tanks go? I know in colder westher I'll have to keep the heater on while running. Is that possible/safe to do?Anywho, thanks in advance, and many happy trails to us all!
