1976 Argosy Original Rear Bathroom Mirror Replacement

Hello all,

I purchased my Argosy without a mirror in the Bath. I wanted to know if anyone has any thoughts on where to acquire a new mirror to replace it with? Most mirrors I have seen are either too heavy to hang or too cheapo. I am open to the idea of getting rid of the shelf and just adding in an aftermarket mirror of some sort...

Chris

I may be able to help you out, if it uses the same mirror that a '74 did. I bought a parts trailer for my new project. I am not 100% certain that the mirror is undamaged, but I'll know after tomorrow. If memory serves, the glass is good but one of the support arms is bent. I suspect it can be straightened and used. Shipping the sucker might cost more than coming up with another solution, though... it's about 3' long.

That would be great! Maybe I can make a trip that way later in the year. Would you be willing to hang onto it for me?

Shouldn't be a problem, assuming it's in usable condition. I don't think mirrors are in huge demand, and the center-bath project trailer has a different setup and a usable mirror.

Long way to go for a mirror... hopefully you're talking about a trip for the trip's sake.

Oh yeah. I travel cross country at least once a year. No reason I couldn't swing down that way. I have never been anyway...

Do you still have that mirror? I live in Fort Worth, and would be interested in it. Thanks

You'd have to get crabbey1 to agree, I promised it to him and he said he's eventually coming through the area and will fetch it. You might want to make sure it's the right size/shape for your Minuet, as well. I know it's right for a "standard" Argosy rear-bath '74 or '75, but I don't know the dimensions of other years/models.

I'm not sure about the size. I'll get the guy who's doing work on it to measure. Thanks for the post.

Hah! I had *just* sent you a PM about it. Now we'll see if it's the right dimensions for a Minuet for glovedahl I guess!

My mirror is 12-1/2" x 38-3/4. The base is 48" long and 4-1/2" deep to house the window shade. The mirror hinges up to be use as a medicine cabinet.
It came out of my 1974 28' argosy.
