A Brief History
Old Glory is a slice of American history. Travel trailers are such a unique aspect of our history, so we thought we would build one honoring the country where the concept was born. Sadly, much of the interior of this trailer was not salvageable. We removed all of the walls and started fresh. A blue floor leads to white laced cork walls, red countertops, and birch walls. The American Flag Smeg refrigerator completes the look. The aluminum bathroom was one of the original features that we were able to use, so we cleaned it up and added some new features.
The Spartan Aircraft Company was founded in 1928 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. J.P. Getty (yes, that Getty) acquired the company in the late 1930’s and invested heavily in research and development. When the US got involved in World War II, Getty went to enlist, but was told his efforts would be better served operating the manufacturing plant to supply airplanes and parts for the war. After WWII Spartan used its skilled labor force and manufacturing abilities to create the legendary Spartan Executive; a five-seat plane with unparalleled luxury, speed, and flight range for the extremely wealthy. In 1945 Spartan changed focus to a like-industry, travel trailers, and did so with the same cutting-edge building techniques and lavishness one would expect.
