1950 Spartan Imperial Mansion - Renovation ALMOST Complete = great deal NOW!

Title: Add New - Airstream Trailer Classifieds - Airstream Trailers For Sale
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

Miss Olympia, the Greek Goddess (you can call her Oly) is looking for a new home -- and she's a screamin' deal! We didn't have time to finish the renovation before the weather turned, and now we're moving and have another project arriving next week. So -- our lack of planning is your great opportunity to get a rare piece of Americana, finish her up, and enjoy her in all of her glory (including the significant value appreciation once her outside is polished up and is as sparkling as the inside! Whether you're looking for a Tiny Home, rental property, Airbnb asset, guest house, boutique, restaurant, or to travel the country...with Oly, you'll be doing it in style.

With a vintage-inspired modern design, Oly is a unique blend of Industrial-Americana. Warm barnwood and polished birch are juxtaposed with sleek galvanized steel, and the result is exquisite comfort and style.

Here are her vitals:
- 1950 Spartan Imperial Mansion (Park Model)
- 36' long, 88 inches wide
- Ceiling height is over 6 feet -- bring on the tall drinks of water!
- Weighing in around 6000 lbs
- Full kitchen
- Full bath
- 1 bedroom
- Front and rear door
- Ample storage

When we found Oly in Portland, Oregon, we immediately fell in love! She's always been well loved, so we had a great canvas to start with. We started a full renovation, which includes removing the floor and walls -- basically taking it down to the studs to remove/replace insulation. We reimagined her, and made the following renovations:

- Stripped, sanded, polished one side -- still needs the final polish
- Buffed front plexiglass windows

- Wood plank laminate (waterproof) floor
- All new electric and plumbing
- LED lighting, both battery and hard wired
- Added new AC/heater unit, vents outside
- Replaced windows

Living room:
- Sanded, stained original birch wood wall and ceiling panels
- Wall coverings of corrugated metal, barnwood-esque planks, and vegan leather
- Custom bar that encompasses AC/Heat unit
- Reinforcement added to hang flat screen tv

- Cabinets sanded, stained, hardware cleaned or replaced
- Full size stainless kitchen sink, farmhouse faucet
- Gas stove/oven replaced a few years ago
- Tiled and galvanized (magnetic) backsplashes

Full size toilet (This is a "Park Model" so there are no tanks in the trailer -- it's meant to be hooked directly to sewer or septic.)

- Sanded, stained original birch wood wall and ceiling panels
- Closet cabinets sanded, stained, hardware cleaned or replaced
- Room for a full or queen bed

She is light (less than 6000 lbs), and tows great. Axels and tires are solid.

Here's what she still needs to be fully renovated (and have a value of around $80,000)
- Replace ceiling vents, we have all original covers
- Window latches and mechanisms need to be installed (we have all the pieces)
- Finish sanding and polishing exterior -- this can be done yourself (or take it to a pro) and will polish to a full mirrored shine! There are some minor scratches that will buff out.
- We'd recommend new plexiglass tinted windows up front (about $600 total)
- The undercarriage was replaced with wood -- it will eventually need to be replaced, ideally with aluminum
- The door interiors are a little rough. Could be polished with the exterior, replaced or refinished. Handles work and lock.
- One window casing needs replaced, or fitted with a new window


Why don't we just do these things and list her for more? (Believe me, if we could, we would!) Because this was not a pre-paid unit, and we need to cash out now to upgrade our new shop and make room for a pre-paid project that gets here next week.

Clear title in hand.
