New to trailers and Argosy
Welcome to the Forums and the world of Vintage Minuet ownership!
As you will discover, there are numerous unique traits in the Minuet series. Your coach is from the first year of the Minuet line. At 7.0' wide, it is 8" narrower than the regular Argosys of the era; and as a 6.0 Metre may very well have the composite aluminum floor meaning that you won't have to worry about the rot associated with wood floors. In addition, you have likely already discovered that the cabinetry was made utilizing vinyl-clad aluminum.
As you become familiar with the waste system, you will also likely discover another trait that seems to be unique to the Minuet. The gray water tank is mounted above the floor on the floor of the rear 3/4 wardrobe (streetside corner). Due to this location, the shower drain is not serviced by the onboard tank requiring a blue tote tank when 3-point connections aren't availalbe (unless the previous owner added a gray water tank for the shower or some means of pumping the shower waste up to the gray water tank).
Enjoy your Minuet -- they are fun to tow and light enough in weight that they help to save fuel on long trips.
