Argosy Manuals

In case you are looking, I have attached the owners manual to my 1976 Argosy. It contains information on all of the different length and layout motor homes for that year, including some electrical schematics. I offered this up to one person privately but decided that it would be a good idea to share with everyone else.

If you have any other documentation on these feel free to post it for the rest of us!

Wow, I didn't realize that a 6 meg file could be uploaded to the site!

Thanks for posting. I only wish it had information on the front bath 20' Argosy. It would seem that after about 1975 the front bath model disappeared. But there is still some good stuff in this manual for me.

Thanks!

Brad

I;m in the process of buying a '74 24ft, so this will give me some insight to the various systems. I know its an old post, but useful to me nonetheless (newbie).

Wow, did you scan that? I'd like to share my owners and service manuals, but feel the job of bending the book on every page to get a good scan isn't necessarily worth the time. Not to mention the service manual would have to be split into multiple files due to the size.

**************************

Little known, but Airstream puts some useful stuff online:

Airstream, Inc :: Serial Numbers

Airstream, Inc :: Specifications

They're clearly lacking some things (i.e. no info for 1974 Argosy mohos which were clearly made!); but a good resource nonetheless

Jason, I can vouch for the fact that Airstream made Argosies in 1974

Of all the documents that I miss having available for my 74 is a wiring diagram. I realize even the models/years that did have wiring diagrams they aren't the greatest but not having anything sorta sucks

Having access to the one Matt made available has definitely been a help for me.

Thanks!

Brad

Yes I did scan that. I manual was already in a small 3 ring binder so all I had to do was remove it and hit the scan button. Took me five minutes if you count the walk to the copy machine.

Hmmm... My service manual is in the classic plastic multi-ring bind type. It would be hell to get that this back into the binding, but easy to get out. The owners manual is a typical spline / glue binding so I'd have to cut it apart but maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing considering the benefit of being able to share it with others. I'll have to consider that.

hi. I can't seem to download the pdf you posted of a '76 argosy manual. Can you send it or another link directly to me at eric@freudenthal.net. Thanks.

I'm not surprised.....

Matt posted it 9 years ago and sold his 1976 around 6 years ago. Not sure if he even uses the forum any more.

None of the links to personal cloud stores are permenant, and will change as soon as the owner re-organizers.

Here is a link to my copy, but the same caveats apply.
