Frame and A-frame. Frame does have a fair amount of rust but they only rust through I found was on the driver side section of the A-frame. It is rotted through on the bottom. I did a quick fix on this so that it would be safer to tow home. I towed it approximately 500 miles with no issues.

This vintage Spartan is not perfect but it does have a lot going for it. It is what is referred to as a “Double Ender” where the exterior of the trailer looks the same in the front and in the rear. With a double ender, you have a good view to all the surroundings. This is a 2 bedroom model which is very hard to find and very desirable. It has the port hole style window in the front door which is very cool and very desirable. If you can do most of the restoration work yourself, you can end up owning a nice vintage Spartan without having a fortune in it.
