The '76 Argosy 24 Twin Bed Model had a base empty weight of 3,610 pounds with a base empty hitch weight of 560 pounds. Both of these weights are without any optional equipment, fluids (LP/water/etc.), nor personal possessions. The coach would likely approach 5,000 pounds gross weight with a hitch weight 650 pounds when loaded for a vacation.

The san below is from the '76 Argosy sales brochure.

Good luck with your research!

Thanks for the information the dealer gave me a much lower weight and it didn't sound right to me.
