I think we should celebrate our diversity - and besides, Spartans are pretty cool too!

Well, if we are coming out of the closet.... I must confess that I am also the proud owner of a 13' Scotty sportsman. Do you think that your Ford could pull that????

They can be ... even when they are used as storage containers!

We spotted this Royal Mansion model in Apache Junction, AZ last March.

Say, I literally spotted 4 of those in N.C. two weeks ago. There is a long established trailer "village" on Route 158 on the way to Kitty Hawk. We went through it looking for a restaurant that was advertised on a billboard. The restaurant was closed, but we saw dozens of old trailers - three airstreams of 60's or 70's vintage, three of the Spartans which were still in use! One had recently been painted and was neat as a pin, the other two were raw aluminum with tacked on porches, etc. But honey they are ALL over the place, just get off the four-lane, drive slowly - and have a car full of people to LOOK.

Well, they say confession is good for the soul. So, here goes. We own a 1957 Sante Fe that is so cute. We often think about selling him, but haven't been able to part with the little fellow.

Couldn't pass this up. I swiped this picture from vintageairstreamcraxy.
But the answer is so obvious that I had to put it up here!

A 13' Scotty weighs 975#, so a F350 could actually carry four of them on it's back!
