This trailer is being sold on consignment for the customer who originally bought the trailer from us.
The exterior of this vintage Spartan is very original ,very intact and 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. A frame is good and solid and in nice shape. The rest of the frame has some surface rust, but appears to be good and solid in all areas accessible for inspection.
Dents, scratches and damage. There is no major damage on the exterior of this unit but it does have some small dents, dings and scrapes.
Entry door front. Has the original aluminum entry door which has the cool porthole style window. Has the original style Bargman L-66 lock which is in working condition and does have keys. The bottom of the door is pushed in a little but it still functions fine. Door has had new seals installed.
Entry door rear. Also has the original aluminum door with the cool porthole style window. It has the original style Bargman L-66 lock which is in working condition and does have keys. The exterior skin on the door is in very good condition but there is a very small crease at the top corner of the door. This door also has had new seals installed. Both doors have new stainless steel hold backs.
Screen door front. Has a new oak custom made screen door built like original one.
Screen door rear. Has the original wood screen door, which is still in pretty nice condition. Some of the trim that holds the screen on is de-laminating a little bit.
Steps. Has both of the original pull out steps at the front and rear door. Both steps function fine but do have some surface rust.
Front hoist. Has the original front hoist but it is froze up and does not crank up or down. May just need to be lubricated or may need to be replaced.
Hitch coupler. Has the original cast iron hitch coupler with 2-5/16 inch ball which is in good working condition.
Roof and Vents. Has two of the original aluminum crank up vents which are in working condition and a roof air conditioner has been added. There is no apparent damage to the roof, but there has been one area that has been patched. Both roof vents operate correctly and do have new seals.
Exterior lights. Has all four of the original teardrop style marker lights. Newer tail lights have been added in the rear, which are very similar to the original ones. Has the original license plate, light and bracket.Exterior lights are un-tested.
Underbelly. Has the original aluminum underbelly which has your typical oxidation, but overall is in nice shape. There have been a couple holes cut behind the axles for access to plumbing, I believe.
Windows. Has the original curved plexiglass windows in the front, which are in decent shape, but one does have some stress cracks. It looks like the seals on these windows have been replaced. Has all the original two piece opening windows on the sides and rear. These windows are complete with all hardware and screens. I believe all these windows have the original seals which probably should be replaced. There is no broken, cracked or missing glass.
The interior of this trailer is mostly original, complete and intact. It has the original Birch wood work, original lights, original stove and refrigerator and the bathroom is still intact.

Has what I believe is the original running gear with the exception of new tires and possibly newer hubs.
Axle. Has the original 4 inch drop axle with leaf springs. We pulled the grease caps and there is grease around the bearings but we did not inspect and repack the bearings. The axle has surface rust, but all appear to be in good condition.If towing this trailer real far, I would recommend have the bearings inspected and re-packed with grease. This is something that our shop can do for an additional expense.
