The exterior of this trailer is very original, very intact, and very straight. It is built like an airplane with riveted construction for a long life and durability. It has aircraft grade aluminum that can be polished up to a mirror like shine.
Frame and A-frame. Has surface rust, but appears to be solid in all areas assessable for inspection.
Dents, scratches and damage. Has some small dents on the rear at the bottom wraps and a small dent in front of the rear step. Other than those, the exterior is very nice, sweet and straight.
Entry door front. Has the original aluminum entry door with the cool porthole style window. Door has an aluminum patch around the original L 66 Bargman lock. Lock is in good working condition. Does have one key for the lock, but it works sort of hard. Skin on door is in very good condition. Door will need new seals. Door still has the interior vinyl cover, which is in poor shape but is great for a pattern.
Entry door rear. Also has the original aluminum entry door with the cool porthole style window. Door has a couple of very small dents and a half inch carriage bolt by the lock, but overall is a nice condition. Has the original Bargman brand L-66 lock, which is in working condition, but no keys. Door will need new seals. Original interior vinyl covering is still on door which will need replaced but works great for a pattern.
Screen door. Both the front and rear door has the original screen doors, which are aluminum and in good shape.
Entry steps. Both doors have the original entry steps which have surface rust, but are in good working condition.
Front hoist. Has the original front hoist which is in working condition.
Hitch coupler. Has the original cast-iron hitch coupler which is in working condition but could stand to be lubricated for smoother operation.
Roof. Roof is very dirty from being parked underneath trees, but I do not see any damage whatsoever. It does not look like any tar or roof coating has ever been added on roof.
Exterior lights. Has the original exterior lights which are showing a lot of wear and should probably be replaced. Temporary tow lights will need to be added to tow this trailer home. We can provide these for an additional charge.
Underbelly. Has the original aluminum underbelly which is all intact. There are a couple of panels which have some small oxidation holes and one panel is hanging down a little.
Windows. Has all the original windows, the front curved plexiglass windows do not have any cracks or holes, but they are a little cloudy. All of the opening jealousy windows are complete with all hardware, and all of them have good screens, except a couple of them. There is no broken, missing or cracked glass. All windows will need new seals.
The interior of this vintage Spartan is mostly original, intact and in very good shape. It is a two bedroom model which is very desirable. Has most of the original light fixtures and the woodwork is in pretty nice condition.

There are some very small areas with water stains, mainly underneath some of the windows. Ceiling has the original birch panels which are in nice shape.
Has the original running gear with the exception of new tires and wheels. We pulled the grease caps and there was adequate grease, so we did not repack the wheel bearings. I would suggest they get inspected and repacked before any long trip. We can do this for an additional charge.
