If your 27 is a motor home that size could be correct. I don't know motor home sizes and those may be entirely different.

1979 Argosy Center Bath Twin 30'

We bought this trailer new in 1979 and traveled extensively with our four daughters for a number of years and then stored the trailer when they no longer wanted to travel with us and we couldn't leave them home alone. (about 14 years). My wife and I spent about 3 years restoring (new appliances, new floors, new curtains, toilet, hot water tank, and every thing else except the Armstrong A/C, which still works perfectly. We had planned all along to save the trailer for retirement which we did and have spent the last seven winters in Florida with it, and last summer spent two months and 9500 miles zig-zagging across the US! We use a Hensley Arrow and tow with our 2005 Nissan Armada, which hasn't missed a beat (so far).
Ran across this web site while searching info on Argosys and would like to add my trailer's VIN to your database.
VIN: 30A9V3176


P.S. Our daughters have informed us that we cannot sell the Argosy. It will become a family heirloom. Lots of wonderful memories which I hope will continue for a couple more generations.

I did some searching online after your original post on a 27' and found a couple of 27' Argosy's. All were 1979's and at least one had Minuet badges which makes a fourth size Minuet. Your data sheet is 1978 so they were most likely only made the last 2 years of Argosy production and probably a pretty rare variation.
