Is this an Argosy?

Spotted this on a trip to far western NC, just outside the Nantahala Gorge, west of Bryson City. http://tinyurl.com/yxoaoube

Phone camera was malfunctioning so I wasn't able to get a shot of the driver side. 1 window is either missing or open. It's been sitting for a while. You can manipulate the map to get some additional perspectives.

Definitely not an Argosy, but pretty cool looking. I'd love to pull that out of there if it wasn't so far away!

Dodge Travco it is. Nice rigs but goodluck getting parts for them. I ran into an owner of a Travco, just outside the meet up in Michigan; it was sitting forlornly on his front yard as he couldn't get parts for the engine.

Cheers
