SPRING SALE All trailers ON SALE
The exterior of this trailer is very original and very straight. It has all the original windows, doors and vents which all appear to be in decent condition. This trailer is built like an airplane with riveted construction for a long life and durability. The exterior could use a good cleaning. It was too cold here in January to clean the exterior like we usually do.
Frame. Frame and A-frame do you have some surface rust but everything looks good and solid in all areas accessible for inspection.
Dents, scratches and damage. There are two patches on the front of the unit and a patch at the top drivers side rear. There are some small dents and dings otherwise but overall the exterior is in pretty good shape. The exterior of the trailer needs a good cleaning to get everything looking uniform.

A cambered roof is much better than a flat roof because it sheds water better and can hold up to heavier snow loads in winter climates. There is a dent across the rear of the roof. We sealed this area with Polar Seal to prevent it from leaking. The rest of the roof looks to be in good condition however it is very dirty.

These windows all have the operators and the safety latches but some of the knobs are missing for the safety latches. All of the opening windows do have screens.

This vintage Spartan has a very cool exterior with the fluted aluminum on the bottom half and the smooth aluminum on the upper half. This could be used as a large camper as most campgrounds will accept 40’ trailers.
