This 1948 Spartan was in pretty decent original condition upon purchase. It was taken to a few shows before the decision was made to maximize the space with a bathroom, updated electrical, and some key design nods to the original Spartan trailers. With seventy-two years of use, it was necessary to refresh the trailer from the frame up to accommodate modern amenities.
The restoration was a frame off addressing years of wear and tear to the frame as well as installing new wiring and new subfloor. New Marmoleum flooring in Trace of Nature, part of their Striato line, was selected due to its similarity to original Spartan flooring.
Four coats of Spar varnish makes the birch paneling shine. The majority of the original cabinetry was meticulously restored and reinstalled. The original Spartan red and white grid patterned backsplash in the kitchen was re-created using a thin plastic with the grid carved into it. Marmoleum in Earl Grey Chocolate, was chosen for the countertops. The original oven was refurbished and the oven cover was sanded and polished. An original Frigidaire fridge had some body work completed and the original color re-applied.
The bathroom is a new addition with a vintage Pullman sink installed above the toilet so it could be tucked away while not in use. A stainless-steel shower was also installed with a teak floor. The bathroom door was created with the signature porthole window and privacy glass for allowing additional light into the small space.
The upholstery maintains the nod to an original Spartan theme. The plaid wool blend in grey, blue and red was chosen to lend a 1940’s feel of camping by the lake and going fishing that is reminiscent of the era. The original Spartan logo is red and the color makes appearances throughout the trailer as a nod to original Spartan design.This trailer shines as a true classic with tasteful modern amenities.
With its inviting warm wood interior and very functional layout it’s the perfect escape whether in the backyard or on the road.
