What is this?

I know this isn't an Airstream but I was curious as to what it is and year? It's all aluminum.

Looks like it could possibly be one of Saddam's first palace's or one that our recently BOYS visited.

Spartan?

Is that the TT from the Lucy/Desi movie? After I got crazy and bought my old AS heap, I checked out the movie for the very first time. Cute.

Interesting. Just another example of a classic that was built better than modern stuff.

So where is it and how much could it be had for?

Gotta like the Spartan logo. Was it a cast deal or a decal I wonder?

Here's a link to a really cool fully restored '46 Spartan. If we didn't have Maxwell, I would want one just like this!!!!

Thanks to all that replied, especially the ad and the link to the restored Spartan. I found this trailer out in the field here in Ca. It took a while to locate the owner who knew nothing about it, but I bought it anyway. I was intrigued by the styling/shape of the trailer and now that I've seen a painted and a polished version of the trailer, I'm more motivated to get it home and give it a real hard look. I know I can't afford a professional restoration and I'm somewhat limited in doing the work myself but I'll assess and report back.
