SALE PENDING W.G.M.
The exterior of this vintage Spartan is in very good shape overall. It has all the original windows, both original doors and is pretty straight. It is built like an airplane with riveted construction for long life and durability. It has aircraft grade aluminum that can be polished up to a mirror like shine.
Frame and a frame. Bottom lip of A-frame channel on streetside had some rust issues so a 1/4" x 4 foot steel angle was welded to the bottom of the A-frame on both sides. It was towed over 1000 miles with no issues. Rest of frame has surface rust but all appears to be good and solid.
Dents scratches and damage. The worst dent is on the curb side rear bottom wrap. This could be removed and straightened out on a English wheel. Otherwise, the trailer has only very minor dents and dings. The exterior skin does have rust stains on it, I’m guessing from a sprinkler system. These rust stains will come off with some rust remover and elbow grease.
Entry door front. Has the original aluminum entry door. The bottom third of the door is pushed in a little. It has a newer L-66 Bargman brand lock which is in working order. No keys. Door still has the original interior vinyl cover which is in poor condition but would work great for a pattern. Door has original seals which should be replaced.
Entry door rear. Has the original aluminum entry door with the original Bargman brand L-66 lock which is in working condition. No keys. Door skin is in very good condition with only some very minor dents and dings.

Front hoist. Has the original front hoist which is in working condition.
Hitch coupler. Has the original hitch coupler which is in working condition. Takes a 2 -5/16 inch ball.
Roof and Vents. Has the original aluminum roof which is cambered. A cambered roof is much better and stronger that a flat roof. It sheds water better and can hold up to deeper snow loads in winter climates. There has been no tar, caulking or sealer added to the roof.
Exterior lights. Has all the original exterior lights which are showing wear. We do have replacements for these on our website. Temporary tow lights have been added to the rear so that the trailer can be towed home safely.

Most of the windows have screens but these are old and should be replaced. All window seals are original and should be replaced. We do offer seals on our website.
