1976 Argosy 26' Office Van? No windows on sides

I got a really sweet Argosy 26' and it is I belive an office? It has a generator and that is about it. No side windows and no bath or kitchen, no holding tanks etc, no propane system etc... It has a great door that is wider than normal perhaps 35 inches wide near the side front. It is white and has great original paint, it runs Excellent, but needs repair to the brakes, perhaps a master cylinder.
It would be awsome for someone in a wheel chair witht the wide door. Or a band!


But I wanted to know if anyone knew what to call a non motorhome Argosy Motorhome with no side windows.
Is it a van?
I will post some pictures soon and as I get a title and am ready to sell it I will put it in the classifieds.

Richard, sounds like something I could use, though I'm likely never going to sell my FC. Let me know when you are ready to sell and I'll let all my reps know. Golf sales reps are always looking for new ideas in rolling showrooms.
Call it what you will, motorcoach, sales van, mobile office, mobile command center.... just call it beautiful .

Very cool indeed Richard. How about some interior photos? Liked the photos of the Guzi too. I once was a Ducati rider.

Very nice photos indeed Richard. You can tell this baby spent it's life in Florida. The under side looks very nice indeed.
I was surprised that back then they didn't have airbags in the springs for the front end.
Also noted that the front end access area didn't have the thumbturn catches my unit has. I assume there if a reach in from below to release the access door.
The gold box for the genset makes me wonder if it's and Onan.
Good luck with finding a new home for it. Looks like a great place to start a new project.
