The exterior of this Vintage Spartan is pretty nice. It does not have any major damage, but it does have some minor dents and dings. 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.

Dents, scratches and damage. There is some oxidation with small holes on the bottom wraps on the driver side of the trailer. There is no major damage on the trailer, only small dents and dings. Overall, the trailer has a pretty nice exterior skin.
