Welcome to the Forums and the world of Vintage Argosy ownership!

I have not heard of this extra piece of aluminum below the plywood subfloor but above the frame, but Argosy was something of a test bed for ideas that were under consideration for application in Airstreams . . . so this may be an example of something that was tried as an experiment . . . . or it may be something that was added by a prior owner or during a previous repair.
Good luck with your Argosy!
P.S.: Argosy Minuets served as a test bed for composite aluminum floors just a year after your coach's production.
