Registering a new/old Argosy

Hi Guys,

I am very new to this and just found your forum. Unfortunately I haven't seen a place to register ownership of a motorhome. Perhaps its here somewhere but I just can't find it.

Anyway, I recently purchased a 1976 Argosy 28 rear bath because I fell in love with its rounded look as I passed it on the side of the road a few times. It reminded me of the good older days of the 1970's. I'm restoring the m/h and bring it back to a "new retro" look throughout and within.

The VIN number is M28T6V5178. Does this suffice to "register" with this group, or do I need to go elsewhere to let you all know I'm a newbie?

Welcome David! Signing in is all you need to do to register, and we love it when people start a thread to introduce themselves. It's great to have you here - do you have any pictures of your Argosy to share?

Photos of my Argosy

Hi Mel and others,

Thanks for welcoming me to the "club".

Here are a few photos of my Argosy, which I am fondly renaming the "Groovemobile". Hey, what else do you call a motorhome filled with bright orange carpet and velour?

Since I've gotten all the mechanicals and the drive train taken care of att this point as well as rebuilt the structural components, I'm now in the process of reupolstering the interior to a retro-1970's look.

This is really turning out to be fun!

David

Looks like the Groovemobile is getting a very thorough restoration. I can't wait to see your progress on the interior. (Don't forget to travel with a leisure suit so you can dress to match your Argosy. )
