1977 Airstream Argosy 28 - Missouri

Title: 1977 Airstream Argosy 28 - Missouri
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

Fully self-contained Class A 28 feet motorhome. Two double beds sleeps 4. 2 swivel lounge chairs with fold out table in middle. Two full length wardrobes with vanity mirror. Stand up shower.

I am the second owner. Smoke free. Pretty much all original inside and out. Has the original orange interior in great condition. No rips or stains in upholstery and all plastic storage bins below sofa and in kitchen in place and in great condition. Original shag carpet has been replaced.

Engine 454 (7.4L) Gasoline engine. 150,000 original miles.
Transmission: overhauled in 2010, only has 1000 miles on it.
Generator: Onan 120V, 4000W
Chassis: P-30 Chevrolet
Gasoline tank: 50 Gallons
Propane tank: 20 Gallons
Air conditioner: 115v Rooftop
Stove/Oven: Magic Chef 4 burner stove with oven
Refrigerator: Dometic RM 2820R. LP-Gas and electric. new in 2001
Microwave: Sanyo, new in 1984

Motorhome purchased with the following optional equipment:

Convenience Group:
-Univolt ceiling fan
-Univolt stove exhaust fan
-Entrance Light
-Central Control System
-Compartment Lights
-Combination sink covers and cutting boards
-Toilet water saver spray

Safety Group
-Outside flood light
-Fire extinguisher
-Emergency warning triangle
-Auxiliary main step extension

Entertainment Group
-Built in stereo AM/FM radio, 4 speakers, w/8 track stereo tape deck
-TV Antenna, UHF, VHF, and color adapter includes TV jack with 12V outlet.
-Telescoping radio antenna.

I was told when I purchased it that the engine had been overhauled at some point but I don't know when and how many miles. Seems to run strong. I purchased two brand new front tires in 2011 that have approximately 200 miles on them. New potable water pump installed in 2011. Fuel pump new in 1990. New radiator core in 1989. It has Zip Dee awnings installed all around. I believe the water tank holds 50 gallons. I have the original owner's manuals and most maintenance receipts since new. The magic chef stove has a small regulator on top that is leaking propane, easy fix once part is obtained. The in dash heat/air conditioner does not work. The in dash radio does not work. I had a front drivers tire blow out and it ripped the front left turn signal out of the socket. I now have one mounted to the bumper. When I had the repairs done from the blowout I got it back without a working speedometer. I use my Garmin GPS to track my speed. There is a cb radio installed that I have never tried to use. It has an aftermarket cruise control installed but I think a wire was knocked loose when I had the alternator belt replaced last year because it worked until then.
