He probably started his measurement in the middle of the front bumper, pulled his tape around the side, and got his length at the center of the rear bumper. It's like measuring the length of waterline on a boat, Right??? You've got to measure around the curves!! Yacht, Land Yacht, same difference.

Please confirm?
Thanks


And the reply I got from the seller...

Hello,
Thanks for the interest and the info. It is indeed a 345 model, I did measure it and we came up 37' from bumper to bumper.
Thanks
He forgot to mention:
"Darn, I told him not to pull that 10 000 # trailer...."

Peter,

Having a "spare" rig can be a blessing and a curse at the same time, it's great to to be able to walk out and pull a part when you need it but if you dismantle it you will need 10 times the space to store the parts. Don't ask how I know this

That would sure be a test of your metal working skills. At first I was thinking it must have seen one hell of a hail storm, but at second glance I'm thinking meteor shower.

Saw this one on Ebay...

Is this the one that had the Mercedes Star on the front from a while back?

I've seen that pic before. That is the mother of all spotlights! I'd bet the original installer was a towboat skipper.

Ok, 1st one is definitely an Argosy, even though on CL it's listed as a '77 Airstream, great price, BIGGER project
77 Airstream w/ 454

This one is right around the corner from me, guess it's worth a look-see

Yes, the first "project" can be taking off the "Airstream" and putting on the correct Argosy branding!

To quote Mike Ditka ....... "Just stop it!"
