77 Argosy weight

Can I have help with the weight of a 77 20ft Minuet? It is not listed on the airstream link of trailer weights that I could find. Did this trailer have aluminum floor? Thanks for the info.

I don't have the figures for 1977, but the very similar 1978 Minuet 6.0 Metre has an empty weight without options of 2,450 pounds. Recently, the following weights were recorded on my Minuet when travel and vacation ready:

Minuet (6.0 Metre) was fully loaded for a three-week excursion (LP tanks full, water tank full, holding tanks empty), its gross weight was 3,250 pounds (GVWR is 3,500 pounds) and the hitch weight was 550 pounds.

Did this trailer have aluminum floor?
Thus far, I am not aware of any definitive source that has been able to pin down the beginning nor ending dates for the aluminum composite flooring in the Minuet 6.0 Metres. It is not mentioned in any of the literature that I have acquired, and the only way that I learned the true makeup of my floor was when the carpeting was removed to expose the riveted aluminum floor underneath. It does, however, seem that the 6.0 Metre was the primary coach in the Minuet series equipped with the aluminum composite flooring - - I don't remember any comments from owners of 22' or 24' Minuets with the aluminum composite flooring.

Aluminum Floor

We have a 22' 1977/78 Minuet, and it has an aluminum composite floor.
