With that front grill, I believe it is a 1975 Argosy Motorhome that's had the exterior paint stripped down to the aluminum and the galvanized end caps painted gray... My best guess.

Thanks for the guess. While I'm not contemplating taking on such a project, I love the look of these motor homes.

I believe Mike is spot on. It's most likely a 75 26' Argosy. I don't think it's a 76 because of the window handles used. Sometime in 75 Airstream started changing over to the newer style of handles as found in the Classics. Only the 74s and early 75s had the window lock on the trailing edge of the windows.

Mike's spot on; lots of good parts including the 50 gallon fuel cell. It's a pity it's where it is, as the sun and the dust is slowly disigntergrating it.

Cheers
