This Spartan is commonly referred to as a double ender, as the front of the trailer and the rear of the trailer on the exterior look identical. Exterior is mostly original and is really not as bad as it looks. The front windows have been covered with aluminum which really makes it look ugly. We do offer these new windows made from poly carbonate on our parts store.
Frame. Main frame rails do have some surface rust but everything looks good and solid in all areas assessible for inspection. A couple of the cross members in the rear are slightly bent. The front A-frame does have some severe rusting with pit holes which should be addressed before the trailer is towed any long distance.
Dents scratches and damage. The worst damage is on the front of the trailer on passenger side where there are some dents and dings. There are some dents and some corrosion holes in the bottom wraps of the trailer. Overall the body is pretty straight and not too bad.
Entry door. Front door is the original aluminum front door with the cool porthole window. It looks like the front door has had a rough life and should be re-skinned to look really nice. Rear door is the original aluminum entry door with the porthole window . Skin on door is in pretty nice shape with only some very minor dents. Both doors will need new seals.
