Newby needing help

Hello I am new to this forum and just got my first vintage trailer. My wife and I have been full time for several years, but this is going to be my first "project" trailer. I was given this trailer by my son-in-laws father. It belonged to His father and he has no idea what year it is or what model. I need to know what I have. I know it is an Argosy 26 but not sure about the year. The tail lights look like a 72 or 73 but could be newer than that. I can't find any plates or marks anywhere on the trailer that give any information as to what it is. It is a rear bathroom with twin beds. The kitchen is on the door side and there is a couch in the front. I cannot find a VIN anywhere but the thing is in some trees and I can't see all of the front.

Any assistance on where to find the VIN would be appreciated.

The VIN should be on an aluminum tag on the road side just behind the front curved section, mounted low.

Ok. Thanks. I think that is where the tree with the bee hive is. I guess I am going to have to move it to get to it.

It is also stamped into the frame on the curb side just behind the propane tank mount. It is on the top of the frame.

On the mid 70's Argosy the data tag is on the front of the trailer below the center window on the street side.
