Joe it is in Coloma CA. That is where it California gold rush started You are just a few hours away I think the trailer is a 56/57 with the new 7 panels.The front window sure fits the time line. Just guessing about the trailer, I know for sure about Coloma CA. History. Wally

I love the Spartan Mansions with the birch interior. I'm not sure how well they travel, though. This trailer is really cheap, although I'm not sure if it is a Spartan. I had these pictures emailed to me. She said she lived in the trailer for the last year & the pix were taken while in the process of moving. A bit too much for me to chew & travel to see.

I said a few hours from home because it was listed on the Grand Rapids, Michigan Craigslist page and it is painted with the Michigan State Spartan block "S" on it. And the phone number in the ad is consistent with Grand Rapids Michigan. If it really is in California, it must be a scam.

They did not start making 7-panel Airstreams until mid '57, so it can't be a '56.

It's not a Spartan either. I looked at the Atlas Mobile Home Museum site and there were several that were similar but none exactly like this:

Maybe it's the make that Clinton Twiss had when he wrote the book (that became the movie) "The Long Long Trailer".

Those doors loook mighty familiar, although the rest of the shape isn't the same...

Looks like someone broke in by bending the window frame just forward of the door. Yup, love those windows.

Interesting Craigslist finds

GRANDPA JONES OWNED ARGOSY MOTORHOME - $3300 (HARTSVILLE)

Date: 2010-01-10, 4:47PM CST
Reply to: sale-x5dnn-1546458017@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]



This motorhome is 28 feet long. I got it to restore,but i just dont have the time. It needs some cleaning up and some TLC.I pluged it in and everything seems to be working fine. The guy i got it from told me that Grandpa Jones owned it and traded it in at Cullum and Maxy in the 70s. He told me that a doctor bought it and owned it up until he got it a few years ago. If interested call me. My name is Steve at 615-504-4552 Im asking 3300 obo.
