The second generation, square Argosy, coaches were produced in comparatively small numbers and finding one in good condition is a plus. From the outside, the coach looks to be in comparatively good condition, and I suspect that you will find that you have made an average or better deal on the coach's purchase . . . the fewer the problems discovered with mechanical systems and structure . . . the better your buy will be.
You can find some information about your coach in the following links:
I double-checked the Airstream corporate website, and despite the fact that they are reproducing many of the first generation Argosy owners' manuals; it does not appear that they are reproducing any of the the second generation Argosy owners' manuals. It might be worth contacting Airstream to inquire whether there are any plans to reproduce any of the second generation Argosy manuals. There is a vendor on E-Bay who has offered many Airstream product manuals on CD or DVD, but I am not sure whether he has offered any second generation Argosy manuals. I am not certain whether Secretarial Services is still in operation in Jackson Center, Ohio; when they were in full operation, they offered photocopies of owners' manuals as well as service manuals . . . I haven't heard anything about their activities since Airstream began offering reproduction manuals.
Good luck with your Argosy! I am sure that it will provide many years of enjoyment.
