Now to my question: is this a 22' or 24' bodied Argosy & how can I verify the length without a measuring tape?
I apologize for my lack of knowledge & appreciate any help I can get.
An Argosy 24 is going to be approximately 21-feet of body plus 3-feet of hitch. The actual length of the body may be a bit more or less as some rounding occurred with variances among model years. Should this be a 7.3 Metre Minuet, it was measured and sold with Metric designations but titled as a 24-foot so the variance could be more pronounced with one of those. With the model year of the Argosy that you are purchasing, someone on the Forums should be able to provide you with the precise specifications for the trailer.
Good luck with your Argosy!
