SOLD #0924165002019 (A.N./D.B.)
This vintage Spartan is very original and complete. It has a nice exterior and a nice interior. Questions??? Please call Dan at 765-473-8088.
The exterior of this trailer is very nice. It has a few dents and dings but overall the exterior shell is very straight. It has the original doors, windows, and vents. This trailer 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. There is a tiny rust hole on one side of the A-frame but I don’t feel this is anything that will cause issues. Otherwise the frame has surface rust but appears to be good and solid in all areas accessible for inspection.
Dents, scratches, and damage. There are some small dents on the very front of the trailer and one small patch. The only other exterior damage on this trailer is very small dents and dings.
Entry doors. Both of the entry doors are original and in decent shape. There is some dents and dings, mainly at the bottom of the doors. Both doors still have the original Bargman brand locks, which are in working order and we do have two keys. The doors do have original seals, which should be replaced.
Steps. This trailer has both original slide out steps for the doors, which are in working condition.
Front hoist. It has the original front hoist but it is froze up and needs replaced.
Hitch Coupler. It has the original hitch coupler, which is in working condition.
Roof. It has the original cambered roof. A cambered roof is a lot better than a flat roof because it sheds water better and can handle a heavier snow load in northern climates. The roof is extremely dirty but I do not see any apparent damage.
Screen doors. It has the original aluminum screen doors, which are in good condition. The front screen door has some holes in the screen.
Exterior lights. It has newer tail lights, which are very close to the original ones. It has all four of the original beehive style marker lights with glass lenses and new chrome bezels. All of the glass lenses appear to be in good shape. It has a new chrome license plate light with bracket which is like the original one. All exterior lights at the rear of the trailer are in working condition. The 2 front beehive marker lights are not currently working.
Underbelly. It has the original aluminum underbelly. It has your typical oxidation but is in decent shape overall. It does have some small holes in it but nothing major.
Windows. The front curved windows are original and in decent shape. They do have some scratches and signs of wear but they are not cracked. The front three windows do have new seals. It has three factory installed crank out jalousie windows, which are in working condition. The other windows are the original aluminum windows, which either have single or double panels that crank out. Most of the windows are complete with hardware. There are several that are missing some of the interior hardware and some of the upper operators are bad. There is no cracked, missing, or broken glass except for one of the upper windows in the rear bedroom. It has cracked glass. All windows have original seals, which should be replaced.
The interior of this trailer is very nice for an un-restored trailer. This is a two bedroom model, which is very desirable. It still has the original oak bunk beds in the middle bedroom.
Cabinet and closet doors. They are original and in good shape.
Catches. Some of the catches are original and some have been replaced with newer hardware.
Countertops. Kitchen countertops have the original aqua countertops with matching backsplash. It has a cool vintage pattern and is in decent condition but is showing some wear from use.
