1956 Spartan Royal Mansion - $25,000



A rare and unique vintage beauty with many originals and functional new
updates. Full Size Park Model Aluminum trailer.

Meticulously maintained and loved for the last 20 years by our family in
Portland Oregon.

My mom lived in it for 10 years, and she is a meticulous cleaner and kept
the trailer in excellent shape. It has been sitting in storage for almost 2
years, and needs to find a home where people can enjoy it and maintain it
in the way she deserves.

This trailer provided her a small and clean space she could best manage her

There are lots of windows for good light and ventilation inside the trailer. The front Plexiglas curved window is  in very nice shape with new seals.
