This is the story of a San Antonio couple who specialize in rebuilding and restoring vintage travel trailers with their company Go Vintage Trailers.
According to a recent article on the San Antonio Express-News, they have restored around 20 trailers, most of them for clients. He’s redone a 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman, two early ’70’s Streamline trailers, a Shasta Airflyte, and many more. He and his wife do it together as a team. They also offer their vintage campers as accommodation for events like weddings, parties, festivals, and more.
This couple couldn’t pass up the opportunity to buy an old caboose with the intention of restoring it into a tiny home when they got the chance.
So they bought it. And right now they’re planning to renovate it and turn it into a restored tiny home. They plan on using it for vacations. Since they’ve renovated homes before, they don’t seem to be intimidated by the project at all.

This restored 1957 Spartan ‘Executive Mansion’ travel trailer is up for auction on eBay right now. (SOLD: Post taken down)
It’s 8′ wide by 50′ long so it’s approximately 400 square feet of space inside with no sleeping lofts.
Finding this trailer really opened my eyes to what else is possible with tiny houses on trailers.
According to the owner/seller on eBay, “After WWII Tulsa Oklahoma’s Spartan Aircraft company switched its production of aircraft to travel trailers, including this spacious and ever so rare park model, the 50′ Executive Mansion.”
It’s technically a park model because it has no holding tanks so it’s designed to be used at a campground, RV park/community, or on your own land.
