Those that take the time and money to renovate and remodel vintage mobile homes are my favorite kind of people. Bringing back the past is not an easy thing to do especially if you try to be as original as possible. Those that do this work, that takes the time and money to renovate a vintage mobile home, and bring it back to its glory, are doing us all a favor – we should never forget our past and let’s face it, vintage mobile homes are awesome!
This 1955 Spartan Imperial Mansion was renovated by a contractor in Minnesota that owns his own company called Randal’s Remodeling. You can see more photos of the renovation along with Randal’s notes on his website. He renovated the Spartan as a personal project.
Below is what the Spartan looked like when he first purchased it. He writes that he sent the owner half the money without even laying eyes on the Spartan and while that’s not a recommended way of purchasing anything, it worked out for fine in his case.
The previous owners had painted and wallpapered over the Spartan’s original birch paneling. Luckily for us, Randall wanted to remodel the mobile home as closely as possible back to its original beauty and he did a fine job!
After completely gutting the interior and re-wiring he began insulating and adding birch paneling which is what the original Spartan’s had.

The exterior was also refurbished:
Once the Spartan was placed Randall built a screened in porch for the mobile home:
Randall did a wonderful job on the renovation and now has a fine vacation or hunting cabin in a beautiful wood setting. He also did us all a favor because there’s one more beautiful vintage mobile home, a 1955 Spartan Imperial Mansion no less, in the world.
As always, thank you for reading Mobile and Manufactured Home Living!
