For posterity...photos of the original gaucho cushions. Just in case anyone wondered how they were constructed.

Argosy gaucho dimensions

I measured these cushions from a '76 Argosy for someone who was replacing theirs. Pad = bolster.
Might be helpful to someone else.

Hi, new here. Just bought a 74 argosy 28' to restore/remodel. Is there suppose to be wood in the cushion under the fabric, or just on the frame of the goucho? Ours had junky cushions that I'm not sure are even original in style. Also, is there suppose to be wood over the holding tank too for a platform? Thanks, Cindy (When the tow truck dlivered it my daughter said the giant twinkies here, that's where that came from.)

We have an Argosy minuet. The gaucho back has a piece of luan under the fabric on the rear side. It's about 2 inches smaller - all around than the cushion. I think this is because when you pull out the gaucho, the supporting frame underneath has luan in the front (seat bottom section) but not the part that is nearer the wall. The luan in the back bolster provides stiffness in this section. OUrs also has a 3rd section - that tucks in under the back bolster, it has wood on the back as well - visable. fabric is stapled onto this section - it's the narrowest section of padding and is intended to fill in the crack nearest the wall.

New cushions

I'm looking for foam for new cushions for my '64 Globetrotter. The upholstry is actually in, well, fair condition. I'm going to take them to my favorite dry cleaner to see if she can make them usable again, mostly just cleaning the foam dust out. The original foam has holes in it, like maybe the compressiblity varies? I wanted to find something that was comfortable... Does anyone have product names for their cushion foam? I'm wondering if it would be good to wrap the foam with cotton batting.

Thanks

Peter
