Beginning in 1974 Airstream began manufacturing a Class A motorhome, badged “Argosy”. These began as painted aluminum 20- and 24-foot models, to be followed in 1979 by the Classic with an unpainted aluminium body.The Argosy motorhome were in production from 1975 until 1979 They were built in a separate facility in Versailles, OH. In 1979 there were three models of motorhomes built. The Argosy, a painted Airstream (truly an Argosy with Airstream logos and different paint scheme) and the first silver bullet Airstream motorhome.” The Argosy trailers were also built at the Versailles, Ohio plant.

The Argosy motorhome (and the ’79 painted Airstream) were built differently. The upper rear segment was a one piece steel segement. whereas the Airstream used 5 aluminum segments instead.
