Did a day trip up on the Blue Ridge Parkway today. We saw 3.
An 80's 20'-25' parked in a campground.
An Interstate that looked new, near Blowing Rock traveling north.
A almost new trailer, 20' I guess, not to far behind the Interstate.

We were not towing, but I flashed my lights and waved.

Musta' Been a Rally nearby

We saw four this Sunday around noonish near Chattanooga as we were headed up to Ft Campbell to visit the kids and grand-baby.

First was a B-van just south of Chattanooga headed southbound on I-75. Just a few miles later, saw a '90's (maybe?) 25er pulled by a red Tundra headed same direction. Just north of town on I-24, a newer 25er pulled by a Jeep something (went by really fast with trees in the median). About a half hour later passed a late model "bus" towing a U-Haul trailer on I-24. Rally? Or maybe winter migration to Florida in progress already.

Also saw an Argosy Minuet on an RV dealership lot around MM 114 on I-24 for sale. Let me find the details and I'll post here in case anybody is interested.

Jim

The Argosy is at Scenic Roads RV Center in Manchester, TN. 931-723-1501.

1974 Model Minuet, looks about 21 feet (not all that familiar with Argys).

Been repainted, pretty good paint, though not perfection, interior is nice and all original, minus some normal wear and tear. RV dealer says all mechanicals work (even the heater). Cushions replaced, covers cleaned. Curtains are nice. New vinyl flooring. Bath counters need work. All in all a fairly nice unit, though not perfect.

I didn't think to ask about the axles. Needs new tires. Breakaway switch looked to be disconnected (as in unwired). Oh yeah, one biggee, NO air conditioning. That may be why he's having a tough time selling it the south (been on his lot for a while, as in a year or so).

Asking price is 8995 American I suspect he has quite a bit in it as he said he paid about $4500 for it, repainted it and repaired mechanicals to make it ready to camp in.

We have no affiliation with these nice folks. Just passing it along. As always, this was a 15 minute "inspection", so your mileage may vary.

Happy Hunting.

Jim

Took the golf cart out exploring a distant part of the neighborhood today. Ran across a 1970 Overlander International in pretty sad shape parked on a side street. Looked like it had been jackknifed pretty badly at some point. Front curbside corner caved in and mangled.

If the weather is nice tomorrow, I can probably ride back over in that direction. I got a shot of the back, but none of the damage.

We just winterized ours and had some pangs of regret as we saw this one on I-64 in central Kentucky this afternoon. Didn't have time to see the license plate. Initially we thought it was the same as ours but I see the water heater on the left side. Kind of a tan Ford (F-150?) pickup was the TV

Cliff, here's the pic from the back of the aforementioned Overlander. I'll head over and snap a few of the sadly crushed front end in the morning.Click image for larger version

Airstream sightings

Two sightings Saturday. Both were WB on I30 first toed by brown Dodge about 10 miles east of Sulphur Springs, the second about 30 miles further east towed by a grey late model Tundra with a shell. Then on Sunday two westbound on I40 between Jackson TN. and Nashvlle. First towed by white Ford, second by a white Silverado HD I think. We were eastbound in green Tundra with 23 foot Safari
