I took another look at the trailer today (it's next to the dump station) and I read the serial number wrong the last time. It is 18-4139. This would make it a 1958 18 footer, California built.

i'm not sure, but if i knew what number was in that recycle stamp on the roof, i might have a better idea!

I know its a Spartan

Check the website

You can find pictures of similiar Spartans, although not in as good of shape as this one. It appears to be one of the earlier models, late 40's to early 50's. Which is good, because it was built of the highest quality. The later Spartans had used cheaper material (plywood floors) in an effort to compete with Airstream. After 1959 Spartan could no longer compete with Airstream who was building these trailers for half the cost.

I love the old Spartans and the trailer in question is an early 1950's model - most likely a '52 or '53 Spartan 30ft Spartanette. The Royal Spartanette was 35ft in length and this one definitely isn't quite that long - I can tell by the number and position of windows on the sides - also the placement of the rear door of the Royal Spartanette is generally found on the same side as the front door. If you check out the For Sale section of you will see a needs to be restored version of this exact model. In fact, if you look at the trailers shown on their home page - you will see one that appears to be this same model prior to being polished as it has a dent in the same exact spot as this one. Hope this helps!
