open and airy, with stand-up headroom in the raised-roof model and considerably more
room than expected in the mid-roof models.In the Argosy, side spaces that in traditional trucks had to be reserved for movement in the
cab now can be utilized for modular cabinetry, a pull workstation and a huge range of
other amenities that make the driver feel at home in his second home.
