I towed a 60's Safari and then a 60's Caravel 2 summers ago with my 77 Argosy MH. Properly hitched and functioning trailer brakes and they towed fine! 1200 Miles with the Safari, 800 with the Caravel..

Sorry guys, the green is going away, going back to the original color. I'm not sure about the center stripe color, maybe navy blue. We did work on the original Onan 4kw generator. It has 437 hours on it. It needed a carburetor overhaul, coil, tune-up, fuel filter, and oil change. It works great now.

A PO owner had removed the Roto-Dinette table & seats & replaced it with a storage cabinet. The plan is to remove the cabinet, put in a cushion seat and a removable table so we can use the new seat, table, & couch for eating. The PO owner had also removed the stove/oven and replaced to with a toaster oven. I'm going back to the stove/oven combo. We're removing the 2-door full size refrigerator the PO had added & replacing it with a smaller 1-door refrigerator & microwave above it.

I was able to purchase a original 1975 Argosy Motorhome Owner's Manual on ebay a few months ago.

Yep you can...we have a friend that does just that. His MoHo is called "Rolley-Polley" and the trailer is "The Mother-in-Law's". It's quite the sight!

Checked the propane tank/system yesterday, everything is in good shape. The tank is 14.4 gal, most places fill to 80% capacity equals about 11.5 gal. So far, all gauges & switches on the control panel work, including the LP tank gauge, fresh water tank gauge, generator switch, & water pump switch. We have not tested the grey & black water tanks gauges. We're replacing three in line LP cut-off valves today and adding an outside 110v outlet and a 110v line for the microwave, plus a few more miscellaneous electrical items.................

We installed a couple of LED outside lights. One is above the door and the other is inside the generator compartment. On both lights, we replaced the old light & base. The outside pourch light is two fluorescent bulbs and it does not work. The plan is to use the old light base & cover & install two LED light strips. I'll post a photo when complete.

We're getting closer to painting the top half. We'll paint from above the moulding first. After that, we'll have new windshields installed. Moving slow, but it is moving.............
