Looks like you have a '74 Argosy 24'. A '75 would have the prefix of 25T.

Oops - on edit, I'm wrong. It's a '75. That's what I get for reading the secret decoder ring too fast!

I'm thinking 75. I think the link is not correct.
24T5V0270 =
24 = 24 feet long
T = Twin Beds
5 = 1975
V = Versailles, OH
0270 = production number

On edit : Nice catch, Mel!

I'm still confused, the 74 model info does say 24T5VNNNN and the 1975 says 25T5VNNNN. Neither of these however show a model with 4 twins, mine has 2 twins on bottom and 2 twins above them and the foldout dinette. Was mine converted or am I just not seeing it. Could someone please explain the numbers. Thanks.

Okay, mine seems to be a 75 model 24 footer but I see no model designation for 4 twin beds and a dinette foldout. Anyone???? Thanks.

You might browse the pics from the links in my first post - do any of those layouts match what you have?

The vin only reflects the twin vs. double bed arangement. Bunks and dinette are not part of the vin. Most likely the dinette was factory installed, I have seen them on many argos. The bunks may be factory or installed later.

The one marked 24-7 shows bunk beds but also a foldout couch. It's the closest looking one to mine. Thanks.
