Help Id this vintage trailer

Hi - I am curious to know more about this trailer. It's sitting on our hunting property and someone actually built a hunting blind on it some years ago. I've been in it several times and which has me curious to know more information about the trailer. Thanks!

I'd guess a Bowles or Bowles Aero.

Id this trailer

If you post your picture on the Airforums.com website someone might be able to identify it for you. This website is for Airstream owners and related aluminum trailers. Someone might even be interested in buying this trailer and restoring it.

That's a spartan. I'm doing an old airstream, but spent summers as a kid in a spartan parked in a forest camp where my dad was District Ranger and ran bark beetle mitigation crews.

Go to this website and look at the same concept (well, not a blind, but close...) but done by a designer in Austin.

Locomotive Ranch Trailer - modern - exterior - austin - by Andrew Hinman Architecture


There's a guy on YouTube named Brian Casson who lives out here in Colorado and has posted videos of a number of Spartans he's done/purchased/restored/sold that are incredible. He sometimes tows the Spartans with vintage tow vehicles. He'd be able to tell you about that trailer. He posts his phone numbers on the YouTube video.

What is it?

Is it all aluminum? If it is.... it may be a Barth. Check out the web site at Barthmobile.com I own an all aluminum Barth Class A DP. Great ride!

Thanks for all the replies! I'm thinking you guys are right that it's a spartan, but next time I'm up there I will investigate further. I have no intentions to do anything with it, just trying to satisfy my curiosity. I'll certainly reply with more info and pictures, since everyone loves pictures!

I really like the look of that TT...especially with its aluminum shell......I would be someone would be very interested in restoring it. Sort of looks like one that was restored on an episode of extreme RVs.
