My Argosy has a door window, but my door opens opposite of the way yours does! I do have a light over the door.

I could always take the LIMITED badge off our 310

There certainly are differences between Argosy years and even within the same year. See this thread, Argosy oddities

I wonder if the guys building them enjoyed changing things up a little? ... I know I don't like doing the same thing day after day.
Certainly wouldn't surprise me. What really surprises me is the amount of subtle differences between the Argosies and the later Classic models. They may look the same on the outside but inside the walls, floors, etc there are a LOT of differences.

Another thing I noticed is your door window. I haven't seen another Argosy with that.
Here is a picture of the original door. The windows look pretty much the same as the later classics. I'm fairly certain the window is original to the coach when it was manufactured. The current door is from an 86 345.

I've often wondered why the doors on the trailers are facing the wrong direction. It seems to me if a trailer door accidentally jars open while traveling the wind can do a LOT of damage. With the motorhome doors they would just rattle a lot until you stopped to close it all the way.
