hi, new guy here
i`m not very brand oriented (i love all of the all aluminum trailers
so i figured i share my newest project here
i just stumbled over this Spartan here locally for $500... completely rust free (gotta love AZ weather) with clean title
partially gutted, rotten floor in the rear, completely murdered curb door lock, somebody backed up into a pole and the usual front dents
(Spartan`s have notorious short tongues
but overall she is in very good shape for a 61 year old girl.
the sides are fairly smooth and dent free... just the rolled pan and the rubrail have some battle marks.
my original plan was to clean and prep the old girl for resell ... but after towing the first couple miles i started to fall in love with how nice she towed with the set-back axles....
she is very
lightweight (for peeps that are not familiar with Spartans; the body is a true all aluminum aircraft "Fuselage" construction with formed spars and longerons (sp?))
she is also a mid bath and larger (a full two feet longer then my current `66 Streamline trailer) without having a excessive long overhang
so after sleeping over it we decided that she is a keeper and will eventually replace our (rear bath) Streamline as the "Doggy" trailer.
dont get me wrong; i love traveling with our SL ... but now that we have a second large Dog it gets sometimes a little crowded in there
...to be continued ...
