This is a 1946 Spartan Manor, #830 off the assembly line the first year they were made. Amazingly the interior is about 90% original. Though some panels have had to be replaced, much of the paneling is the original ribbon mahogany and stained birch. We have added a few modern conveniences such as a new fridge, a new toilet, aluminum shower stall, and an on demand hot water heater. We also gave it a very good polish.
As you can imagine there was work to be done and without compromising on the originality, here is what we did:
• Made new sill and some paneling
• New front windows
• Installed a Dometic gas/110 volt Fridge
• Buck riveted aluminum shower
• Toilet and black water tank
• On demand hot water
• New wiring
• New 30A WFCO power center
• New pex water piping
• Solar charger
• Twin 6v AGM batteries
• Inverter
• Installed a new gas heater
• Installed a custom drop down table
Original parts that we love and kept:
• Aluminum double sink
• Aluminum counter tops
• Cabinet pulls and latches
• Original Venetian wood blinds
• Cabinetry
• Mahogany paneling
• Wood and bronze screen doors
• Sconce for light
• The cone style wall lights
• Stove
• Shaving sink
• Original steps
• Mirror
And here is what we did not do: After some consideration, we decided not to extend the tongue, as many do. Instead we purchased an extended hitch for the truck.
We did not install a gray water tank, but opted to catch it in a portable gray water tank.
