Argosy :: PICT1183.jpg picture by spacejack1 - Photobucket

This leads to the photobucket album I made of the Argosy. Sorry, I don't see how to upload images to airforums.

I grew up between Memphis and Tupelo and live in El Paso,Tx. I have a 73 Overlander 27 ft that we pull with a 2003 Tahoe with the larger small block. It is marginal because of short wheel base, but is stable using Reese trunnion bars. Also the speed drops while climbing a long steep grade like going to the Grand Canyon or Mesa Verde. Good luck on your new purchase. Restoring an Airstream is kind of like child birth - hurts like crazy but you love the results of your labor.

Hi Spacejack...when you finish- or are ready to post a photo or two- click on Go Advanced (below on the right) then when everything re opens- you will scroll down til you see the manage attachments that. another window opens with five browse buttons. Click the top one and it takes you into your pictures where you right click the one you want and then select it. Then wait and you will see it change after a few minutes...then hit post reply and see if that works.
How's it going in Memphis?

I have a 2008 Safari Sport 17 foot.
I am a brand new airstreamer. I was looking for the place to put a jack and noticed the tank or cover for the tanks, has been seriously damaged. I either hit something or I bought the unit with serious damage underneath. The tank appears buckled and might be torn open. I can't get low enough to see. I'm going to try to get a mirror under there. It looks like the tank/tank cover only has about 3-4 inches clearance above the street. Is this standard? Can these units even be used on dirt roads? What sort of an inspection should I ask for? There is no Airstream dealer nearby. Marc

jimbob: I hear you. Still workin' on the idea of keeping it and getting it shipshape. Gonna take a little longer than I thought, though. I'm leery of big block trucks, mainly because of the offensive driving I usually see associated with them. I know it's a spurious associatin, and rarely occurs when I see them actually towing stuff, but. Maybe it's a local thing. So it's good to know that it's at least possible to go with a smaller block. The old-school touring car idea appeals to me the most.

AIR-Q: thanks for the tips. Memphis is sort of meh, but I'm leaving soon for Austin, Texas. For VERY good reasons. So, I'd have to say, it is going well in Memphis but for reasons unrelated to Memphis! The town is in sort of questionable shape at present, and I find it frustrating for many reasons. There's a lot of great stuff here, and a good history at least as far as popular culture is concerned (kind of nasty on other fronts, but most places have their ghosts). And it's cheap, which is really what keeps most people here. After 40 years, though, I'm ready to move on.

MarcCarol, you will get a better response if you post a new thread, many knowledgeable friends here to help. Welcome to the forum
SpaceJack, I have been looking at an Argosy to purchase near me, it looks worse than yours. Take one step at a time, don't get overwhelmed. Welcome to the forum.

Rogerdodger--Well, mine looks worse now, but it's just that I've taken a bunch of paint off of it. Eventually it will look nice. But I'm gonna have to make some serious bread (for me) in order to make that happen properly, and that's bread that I don't got. My move to Austin is just about going to break me as it is, and I'm gonna be needing to spend most of my time on work when I get there. This is going to be a long process.
