A Brief History
We pulled this monster from San Diego to Ventura, using an iPhone flashlight taped to reflectors for brake lights. Silverglide then completely remodeled all 50 feet, creating this one of a kind cork and walnut suite.
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.
