'76 22-footer, how to move?

I am looking pretty hard at a '76 22-foot Argosy. It looks like just what I want, but I have one question that the current owner has no answer for. If I buy it, I will have to tuck it into a corner of my property hitch-first. That is, I can't back it in with the hitch attached to a truck. How hard is it to move one of these things by hand? Can me and a couple of beefy guys pull it 30 feet or so, or am I just dreaming? The lot is relatively flat, but unpaved.

Thanks all, for a great forum., I have learned so much already.....

Now you've gone and done it. I am sure that they have spies that read the posts with the word "Argosy" in them!
Now they will show up at the pig roast with their unpainted Argosys!
How are we going to explain this at the super top secret Argosy meetings that we hold at the local Steak & Shake?

I had a 1977 Argosy 22. I think it was a bit heavy to be pushing around by any number of guys. Espeically in an unpaved area.
Have you seen the electric hand dollys that are manufactured just for this purpose? I am planning on getting one to move my Minuet into the backyard.
PM me and remind me to pull up my links on them for you.
