This vintage 1953 Royal Spartanette is the deluxe model of the Spartanette line. It is one of the most livable trailers of any period of trailer design including Airstream. The flat ceiling alone adds headroom and a feeling of spaciousness not found in other trailers. With the addition of warm wood tones provided by the blond maple wall and ceiling surfaces; period appliances (stove, frig, heater); period details (original formica, light fixtures, cabinet pulls, headboard, bathroom paint color, vivid original carpet)...all contribute to a sense of traveling back in time. My Spartanette, as an example of very good original condition, is in great shape ready to inhabit. The body is straight except for some damage to rear door (see pics), a tail light is missing, and one door handle is broken (after market available). The underside will need to be reinsulated and new masonite panels installed. The interior is beautiful. I added a custom couch with deep storage drawers that can also serve as a comfortable guest bed. While I kept the original kerosine heater, I don't recommend using it...I installed a thermostat controled Rinnai propane heater that works great. I also had a custom truckers tarp made to fit the roof dimensions for extra weather protection against the heavier rainfall of Willits.
This trailer would make a great guest quarters, airbnb investment, remote live-work modual, or a cheaper alternative to a cabin on raw land...
Note: when comparing to other Spartanettes, check lenght for accurate comparison...
