I would call that a Drom.
Where's MAGMAN?
He should be drooling over that one.

Yup. Definitely a drom. And as you say, drool, drool! VERY nice pictures Gerard. For someone who classes himself as "simply an observer" of the Canadian trucking scene, you certainly find some very nice examples. I think you are being way too modest. But thanks for sharing.
Gerard, by the way, did you get my mail about Baie Comeau and my faltering French?

Here is an other specialized use  the Argosy is well adapted for. It is Boat hauling.  They can haul two small boats on a platform behind the cab and the trailer  is hooked on a special fith whell set up very low at the rear of the truck. This one run for Can Am Marine from St-Lazare Quebec. The picture have been taken in 2004. The emptied trailer at the Flying J in Vaudreuil, the other along Highway 20 between Quebec & Montreal.  Bob Archer  have quite a few pics of boat hauling trucks in his collection on Hank's site.

I recently saw a Swift Argosy w/ Swift trailer... Sure wish I had my camera...

I do like the Argosy, too bad it's a freight shaker...? :roll:

I saw a boat hauling Argosey this afternoon on the QEW. It was marked for Ryder and was hauling a load of power boats.
Is Ryder into boat hauling?

Ryder has been running the Argosy boat haulers for at least several years.  They've made alot of deliveries of SeaRays to a place near me called the Fox Chapel Yacht Club on the Allegheny River just NE of Pittsburgh.

Interestingly, Averritt Express has been hauling boats, using the red Volvo tractors to pull boat trailers.  I've seen several coming up I-79.
