Trailer meets bus and motor home emerges. This bus-like vehicle, assembled in the early 1970's, is actually a 1954 Spartan Imperial Mansion trailer wedded to a 1970 GMC bus chassis. The builder of this vehicle, Dr. William Shultz of Bishop California, had plans to manufacture them in quantity, since there were (and still are) a number of the superbly built Spartan trailers moldering away on farms, ranches and backyards. His dream never came to fruition, but thanks to Rod and Phyllis Johnson of Issaquah, Washington, this interesting Silver Mansion continues to roll down the road.
