Does anyone know the dry weight of a 1978 Argosy with rear bath, twin beds, twin steel 30 gal LP tanks, Armstrong AC and front dinette?

Take a look at post #2 in this thread. Chart is attached.

On edit - it doesn't look like Argosy is listed there. Sorry.

The Owners manual for 1978 27 foot twin lists GVWR as 6200 and factory base weight as 4060.
7 gallon LPG tanks: 56 (each???)
AC: 140
Dinette is likely included in the base.

I looked at the chart but couldn't find any info for Argosy trailers. I will go with the approximate weight of 4,400 lbs with all the extras like AC, 18' awning, power jack and extra water tank.
Thank you for your responce.
