It looks amazing; cannot believe the attention to detail.

Wow really sums it up. Ted the Trim man is a national treasure. If you are ever in Richmond, Va I trade you a free dinner for a tour. Thanks for sharing all the cool progress over the past couple of years!!

Now how about some more pics? Maybe of the galley?
Thank you! I'll post some photos of the galley as soon as I get a chance. The storage space in the galley is very limited......

My wife & I would like to travel the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Argosy MH, hopefully next fall. Maybe we take a side trip & meet up then. Sounds like fun!

Has there ever been a 'caravan' of 20ft Argosy's?

Maybe we could try and organize a moving rally through the Blue Ridge Parkway next fall?

According to the shop working on mine they expect the major work to be done before the end of the year and (in the shop managers words) they will be very disappointed if it isn't complete by next summer, so would happily bring ours down to take part.

Here is the pair. I have not towed it yet but I do have the ($100) tow bar.

FYI - I did drive it back from Florida last year and went on a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway after a vintage RV rally. The picture on my Facebook page is the Argosy on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Sounds good to me too! This thread has been truly inspirational and it is always good to have a deadline to help get some things done

We decided to paint the Argosy 6.0 Minuet to match our son's 1998 4W/D 2Door Chevy Tahoe. I think he will use it a lot more than we will ever tow it with Argosy MH. So, the Argosy Minuet TT is now his, we gave it to him. He's very happy! But, I will still tow it at least once, maybe for just a photo!

I'm getting ready to order new curtains for the Argosy MH. The trim guy made new curtains to match the interior, but it was the first set that he ever made and you can see through them! So, I first ordered a set for the Argosy TT and they turn out great!

I think the only item that's left to install is a new stereo. I will have a local stereo shop install it.
