32 foot 1956 Spartan Manor in prime restorable condition. The trailer is built with all metal framing. The aluminum skin is in immaculate shape because the trailer was painted with a light coat of paint. It has been covered for it's lifetime. No corrosion and no pitting. The paint is starting to come off of the sunny side now so it's time to get to work on this gem. All lights work and are original. The tail lights have a light coat of paint on them so they are in great shape as well.
The floor is solid throughout and there is just a little tiny bit of water damage around one side window in the bedroom. Some re-finishing and reattaching of the birch paneling and trim will be necessary and it will need new floor covering throughout.
I would put all new kitchen cabinets in it if it were mine and a little remodeling in the bathroom although everything is usable in it's present condition. The swamp cooler will come off of course and go in the trash. It has NOT done any damage to the ceiling of the trailer or the roof. A vent should be put in it's place.
The front curved lexan windows are intact. The rubber windsheild grommet needs to be replaced and is a standard item and easy to find.
It is fitted for Forced Air Heating but will need a new Forced Air Unit installed. Air conditioning should be done through a window opening. All plumbing is intact and working. All electrical is intact and working.
The trailer will need 4 new wheels and tires although 3 hold air and one holds it for a while. I can put new wheels and tires and pack the bearings for the trip out if you pay for the parts. No extra charge. I can also deliver this trailer and set it up for a small fee plus gas both ways. This trailer is a great deal and chances are you won't have to check auto refinance rates and get a new loan to afford this unit. Just a few new wheels and some kitchen and bathroom remodelling and you'll be up and running in no time.
