Needs work, but the "bones" are in pretty good shape. I originally bought it to be converted into a guest house on our property. I have detailed estimates from a north bay rv shop of the work and $ necessary. Restore back to its original glory as a tow behind or alter like we planned to use as a guest/play house. The Spartanettes are highly sought after for their aircraft design. Located in Napa County, Northern CA. Call for more details, description and/or pictures.

The trailer is only 11 feet long, or 13 feet including tongue. It has a kitchenette, bed, and dining area. No Bathroom in this small style camper. All original interior, windows, and hardware. This is the closest you'll get to the original camper. The previous owner spent three years restoring this camper. Everything on this camper has been restored or updated. The entire camper was stripped down to just the frame and all damaged wood was replaced. The insulation was also upgraded. It stays nice and cool in the summer and warm in the winter. All the electrical wiring has been replaced as well as the fuse box. I have photos and receipts as proof. Tires are in great shape. Electrical works, all marker lights work. Gas stove works. You'll have to provide your own propane tanks. We have pictures of the full restoration, if you want them. Clean title, new tires...literally everything is new or restored. I love this little camper! During the rain storms this year there were zero leaks. Amazing. We're moving and are sad to see our little friend go.

Large working bath in the rear with toilet, shower/tub, and 2 linen closets; followed by two twin bunk beds (the cabinets fold down over the two twins to make 4 beds total). Kitchen has a four burner stove/oven, full size 2way frig. Very large dinette with leaves for expandable table, folds down into a full bed. A/C and furnace. LOTS of storage in the cabinets! And also nice counter space. We installed new linoleum floors to match the cabinets, freshly painted cabinet faces with new handles, all new awnings custom made by Marti's Awnings, all new foam, new curtain rods, new hand sewn curtains and cushion covers. There are still some cosmetic things that need attention that we simply did not get to, but would be great for someone who would still like to add their own touch to their "new" old camper. Everything is structurally sound, no leaks, new tires, electric jack, all the maintenance has been kept up to date. We just returned from a week and a half camping trip with two kids, this camper is good to go! Don't hesitate to call or text with any questions. Thanks!

1964 SERRO SCOTTY SPORTSMAN GAUCHO https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/448/1964-serro-scotty-sportsman-gaucho/trailers-for-sale/ Wed, 12 Jul 2017 17:09:20 +0000 Tin Can Tourists Trailers for Sale https://tincantourists.com/blog/classified-ads/show-ad/448/1964-serro-scotty-sportsman-gaucho/trailers-for-sale/ * S O L D * "Pooch" is a darling little 15 foot, ready to go camper. He appears to have no leaks (haven't seen any), has a solid floor and tows like a dream. He is ready to camp now, although you will have to forgo some amenities. There is what appears to be good wiring, but the outside receptacle is outdated and no extension cord will fit. This isn't a problem to me, I have a battery Coleman lantern and a fan (which will go with him). He does have a self-contained water system in the sink (new faucet pump), and the water drains just fine to an outside receptacle. There is a brand new Porta Potti, never used, which will also be included. Propane was unhooked by a previous owner, but half-full tank and all fittings are there. Two burner stove, propane powered, also included. Coleman stove included to be used until the propane is reinstalled. No furnace, but a furnace grate (looks funky) is on the floor. Bargman lock works great and has key. New lock and key for baggage compartment door. New license plate holder. Outside aluminum in unbelievable shape! Needs paint, but only two small dings. And new paint can wait. New curtains. All window hardware is original and works. All Art Deco interior hardware is there and looks wonderful. Original mirror, with design, also installed. A previous owner painted primer over his wonderful Scotty original paint, so he has a white interior. I have some paint to do the cupboard doors with, if you want. A great little camper!

We have used the camper multiple times in its current state, it is ready to be used as is! Sadly, in our last few adventures together we have discovered that our family has outgrown our little camper and we are ready to share the joy she has brought us with somebody new. We only worked on things that needed to be fixed while trying to keep this as original as we could. It is in great shape with the following original items: paneling inside, windows, counters and sink, dinette table, light figures to include rear light cover, Holiday stove/oven (never tested for working), cabinetry and closet. We have owned it for 3 years and all previous water damage has been removed and repaired. Some of the repairs include: siding removed and framing repaired/replaced as needed, rear gaucho bed reframed, new cushions for dinette, all cushions newly covered this year, new tires in 2017, bearings packed in 2015, original water tank removed (no tank at all now) leaving fill spout on exterior for aesthetics. Images of work done can be provided. 16'4" including tongue (body approx. 13'), 7'1" wide, 1980lbs dry weight. Currently wired for 4-wire flat. Has electric brakes (we did not use them). Sleeps 4-5, with fold-away bunk over rear gaucho bed. Few things we didn't get to: new flooring (new subfloor is level to old linoleum, see pic), 2 ceiling panels missing, LP hook-up (original lines still there), new water tank
