Lots of aluminum in this trailer. In a storage area of the RV Park. Looks to be in pretty good condition overall.

I think when it was built, it would have been known as a "mobile home." Intended to be "movable," but not every day.

Had a RV repair friend on the Oregon coast that was restoring those Spartan trailer some 20 years ago. They had real wood cabinets, everything was real solid wood or good plywood so it was easy to replace. He was planning on selling them for daily use. At that time he had 3 of them in his shop yard.
Here's a link to the history of Spartan.

I turn my iPad over and the pics are right-side-up. But then they spin. So I turn my iPad over and...

I give up.

From a camping trip a few years ago. This peacock saw himself in my shiny chrome bumper, and decided he had to challenge the newcomer for his territory. It was quite a show watching him do battle with himself. Surprisingly, he did not damage my bumper.

Can't you just reset your own breaker at the pedestal? But why not if you did not plan ahead. I guess.

Wow. This is just the 2nd time I've ever heard of a campground controlling usage. The first was in August @ Great Divide in North Jersey. They posted, emailed, and reminded @ Check in to NOT run your water heater on electric and had to do everything possible to conserve.
Sssoooo, here we come setting up and forgetting the A.C. was on along with water heater and suddenly everything went out shortly after plugging in. I checked our pedestal breaker it was fine. Contacted the office and she said he will be out. I explained what happened and he said make sure everything is off. Then he walked over to a remote box with another set of breakers to reset. That box was under lock & key. Water heater remained on propane for the rest of our stay. Luckily A.C. was not really needed.
What I don't get is I paid for 30amp service, why can't I use what I paid for? Oh well. At least I wasn't charged.

Yeah, I get popping the 30 breaker with a 50 trailer but if their system cannot support your 30 trailer on the 30 power system it is time update their system.
