1977 20ft Argosy Motorhome weight?

Does anyone know what is the gross vehicle weight of a 20ft Argo Moho, dry of all liquids?
Additionally,
Would it be safe to tow such vehicle on a lowboy trailer? Considering the height.
I check out Roger's site, but to no avail. Please help.
Could it be towed?



Fabian

My 74 24 ft. is 9600 lbs., I would GUESS about 9,000 lbs. for a 20 ft. Height is 10' 3" with the Coleman AC on it. I think DOT regs are around 13' 5" for minimum clearance so you would be really close (maybe too close if some patching crew had been a little over productive).

You could tow it no problem if you pulled the drive shaft.

Thanks.
Curb side weight is that loaded, or is it unloaded?

Curb weight was listed as WITHOUT persons, food, belongings or any optional equipment. Options were considered, AC, the additional entertainment center, TV Antenna, etc.
