I would like to share “Spartacus” with you. He is a 1955 Spartan Royal Mansion. He is truly a piece of American history, who is sure to get noticed! He has been completely remodeled with many modern conveniences and is now ready for a new home.

A 34′ Spartan Royal Mansion built in 1955 and completely remodeled. More info. here.

    It’s beautiful but priced at 59k for 272 sq ft, I might as well buy a house for that price per square foot.

      Hi Brenda, you may have heard this before, but it bears repeating. The price-per-square-foot metric that we think of in relation to traditional housing isn’t useful when we analyze a Tiny Home. Think about it this way: a Tiny Home contains all the systems and appliances and most of the fixtures of a traditional home, in something like 200 to 400 square feet. A traditional home contains all the same systems and appliances and fixtures, in 1,500 to 2,500 square feet (I’m approximating, of course). So when you work out the math, what you get is apples to oranges. There’s another factor to think about too: in a Tiny Home, most of it has to be custom built, whereas in a traditional home a lot of it can be “out of the box”. I look at this build, and I think it’s both a “Swoon” and a “Steal” at $59K, especially when you take into account the premium prices for Spartan trailer hulks in what is often very poor condition to start with.

    I have very mixed feelings about this because this Spartan originally had a high-quality birchwood interior. For most of those who don’t know the history of Spartan trailers, the company was owned by J. Paul Getty, who made it a priority to make them the very best trailers that people would want to travel and live in, in luxury and comfort, and he spared no expense in doing so. Spartans that have their original birchwood interiors in at least fair condition are worth far more to collectors than those that have been remodeled. It’s quite possible that Spartacus’s interior was in such terrible condition from water damage/wood rot that the owner had no choice but to gut it completely and redo the interior completely.

    In that regard, it is a beautiful remodel, with a few appropriate mid-century modern touches in the fixtures and furniture, particularly the sofa in the living room and the ceiling lamps overhead. I own a 1961 Spartan Sparcraft Statesman which is all original; I would never think to remodel it but leave it as as and repair wherever necessary while staying true to its heritage.

    For a remodel- it is very well done. (I wonder how hard it would be to change the color scheme. I’m not a fan of peach and teal.)
    For a tiny house, it is a great price. Flyte Camp has a re-done Spartan- they want $95,000 for it. Of course, that one is as true to original as possible.
    I would buy this one if it were on the west coast and if I had land.
