a 31 ft 10970's pulled into our OKC campsite last night. it has a black tongue, black trim, and even black around the back lights. It also appears they might a little ones but so far they've not been seen. We haven't wanted to knock on the door yet since they must have gotten in late.

Spotted this 2012 on display at the RVIA show in Pomona, CA. I didn't see any holes from a missing lid. Is this really the way the Sport models are coming out of JC now days?

No lid and it looks a little "puckered" on the end.

What was that quote of Wally's...."we don't make changes, we make...

Hi, yes Bob, but Wally isn't running the show any longer so............


Or, it seems to me, from what I have read on this forum, the improvements are made by the owners now.

Yup, otherwise go back to the Mothership. I've talked with numerous newer AS owners since we've been here; all of them have had issues.

I'm thinking I could do at least that good in my garage, without any metalworking tools.

SmokelessJoe's Argosy24 means I'll never feel like I'm "done" with ours, because I'm never likely to get as far as he has! It's a gorgeous trailer, I hope I get to see it in person someday. I already had soft pano protectors made by the same company he used for his (and I'm very happy with the service and product from Hornsby Canvas in Tillsonburg, Ontario.)

Just saw a beautiful vintage parked at Wal-mart in our home town. Turned out to be 68 TWind with his 68 Land Yacht , up from Mississippi . What a wonderful AS - and nice folks, too.

Nicely Restored Argosy, Vaughn, NM

We saw a nicely restored Argosy being towed south on US 285 through Vaughn, NM at 0945 this morning as we were driving north. Couldn't take a picture. Nice rig!

We took our 64 Overlander out for the first time from Richmond, VA to Blacksburg, VA. The first restop we pulled into, we pulled next to a 75 restored Argosy, painted Orange and white. I wish I had taken a pic of the 2 of us. He had the original orange shag, and the orange tartan couch cushions. Unfortunately he was waiting on Good Sam to help him get an alternator belt.

We then saw a somewhat abandoned 71 Land Yaght in the side yard (my son saw it.) We pulled up the alley drive, then found it was a 1 way, and couldn't back out. (It was Monday morning, and unfortunately, I had to use someone's yard to turn around in - please forgive me)

The only other one we saw recently was in Maine. A later model AS hooked up to a black pickup. This was near Rockport.
