Spartacus 1955 Spartan Royal Mansion by Backyard Bunkies

This is Spartacus, a 1955 Spartan Royal Mansion by Backyard Bunkies.

It’s a 34-foot long vintage camper with two entrances, all new custom cabinetry, designer furniture, mini-split air conditioning, subway tiled bathroom, and more. It’s technically a park model designed to be set up with full hookups (it has no holding tanks). What do you think?

    I am Spartacus.
    I see a lot of 50’s Moderne in that first picture.
    I think the only thing that kitchen is missing is a telephone hanging on the wall. 😉
    Someone has a very keen sense of style, though and it screams throughout this whole unit.
    From the tile bathroom, to the weak sky blue pastel that dominates the kitchen, to the little splashes of modern technology that are sprinkled all over that unit. Not to so much to make it look “pasted on”, but enough to be noticed and appreciated.
    This is an absolute ACE restoration of a grand old trailer and whom ever was involved with this project should be very proud of that fact.
    Amazing job, one and all.

    I always liked the old school and quality build Spartan.
    This modern touch fits well and I would really like to have one but they aren’t affordable anymore except you can DIY.

    Different strokes fer different folks. Personally I do NOT like polished metal. The shape of the home looks, to me, like a massively oversized can of meat.

    And yes… I can see that I’m in the minority judging by previous comments.

    And that folks is what makes the world go round, different likes and perspectives.
