While Argosy may have advertised the deep-wrap wing window as "rock-proof and un-breakable", there have been multiple reports of broken windows. Replacement glass for the deep-wrap wing windows is quite expensive (in excess of $500/side last report that I heard), and is no longer available in the non-tinted version used in our Vintage Argosys (the only version currently available as of the last report that I heard is the solar gray that is utilized in the current Classic series coaches). Having a current three-piece rock guard modified to fit my Minuet was one of the first projects completed after its purchase as I wanted to avoid the possibilitiy of breaking one of the wing windows -- the down side is that with the solar gray rock guard you loose the see-through capability that is so nice if both the front and rear windows are clear.
The three-piece rock guard utilized on the pre-wide-body Classic Airstreams should be a near exact fit for Argosys other than Minuet series coaches. The three-piece rock guard from a wide-body Classic would require modification to the flat center-window panel to fit any of the Argosy coaches. According to my notes, the deep-wrap wing windows are all supposed to be the same dimensions. Any Airstream dealer or service center should be able to order a rock guard for your coach.
Good luck with your search!
