Nice find!

I'm guessing '78 Argosy 30'
I couldn't find a center bath anywhere but in '78.
But it looks like Happycampers has one from '79?
Check out 78Argosy30
Very cool with the Vista view windows, too.
Welcome to the forums and have fun!

According to my owners manual the models Argosy made in 1979 was 6 Metre Minuet, 6.7 Metre Minuet, 7.3 Metre Minuet, 27 Ft. Twin, 27 Ft. Double, 30 Ft Twin Rear Bath, 30 Ft Double Rear Bath, 30 Ft. Twin Center Bath, 30 Ft. Double Center Bath.

The only difference in this one and ours is the Vista View windows which were Optional and the color of the stripe.

Our Argosy Vin # is 30A9J3197

Close, the second 2 is the year, 1972. By VIN, you should also have a double bed in the center. On a 22, that's pretty much a given. The V is for the Versaille, Ohio, plant.

30 = feet
A = Center Bath Twin

9 = year 1979?
J = Jackson Center?
