This rehab project is a complete gut and rebuild from the frame up. The 45′ Spartan Imperial Mansion features two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and full bath. New plumbing, electrical, heating and AC were installed before the shell was spray foamed for extra comfort and rigidity. A vintage 1950’s design style was replicated with new birch wall paneling and colorful Marmoleum flooring. The original walls and cabinets were re-installed with new hardware and countertops. An Operating Manual and Renovation design guide are available with full details on the materials and finishes and how to operate the Spartan below.

The travel trailer was made by Spartan Aircrafts Company. In the late 1930s, the company was acquired by billionaire, J. Paul Getty. After WWII the huge housing demand led Getty to start manufacturing trailers in 1945. Spartan spared no expense, but at the time with a new Levittown house starting at $8,000, $4,000 for a trailer seemed pricey. The year 1962 marked the end of production.
