This Custom Argosy

This custom Freightliner Argosy was a project at Paradise Coach Interiors, who are as you might guess a custom coach / motorhome build company. They’re based in Coberg, Oregon, if anyone is curious about doing a custom interior or rebuilt there.

This is a toterhome they built out of an Argosy chassis. A toterhome is also sometimes called a “sleeper truck.” It’s a motorhome built onto a large truck with a lot of horsepower. In general, people use the term to mean a medium to heavy duty truck (14,000 and up pounds GVWR) chassis.

Like this Paradise motor coach Freightliner, a lot of toters have a living quarters (couches and entertainment) right behind the truck cab. Then a kitchen, then sometimes a bathroom, then a bedroom.

Then behind all that they tow a standard 5th wheel trailer.

A lot of the ones you might have seen featured on Blogunity have luxury interiors — and some are custom luxury style exteriors, with a slide out unit or multiple slides.

For those not familiar with these Argosys, they’re made by Daimler Trucks North America and they’ve been producing the semi tractors since 1998. They come usually with Cummins 500, 530 or 600 or Series 60 470 or 500 engines. And mostly with 18-speed ultra-shift transmissions, from what I’ve read.
