This Spartan was given to us by family to turn into a mid-century home however Arizona does not allow a vintage trailer to be permanently located where it can be seen from the street. Included are 6 new F-rated commercial 12-ply 225/75 R15 tires and new black aluminum rims, 15x6 with bolt pattern 6 on 5-1/2, for all new tires and rims on 3 axles. The tires and rims will be installed with new lug nuts upon arrival on August 26. This Spartan tows smoothly and has a 2-5/16' coupler. Safety chains, hooks and D shackles rated for 10,000 pounds should be used for a road tow.A new RV plug and brake lights should be installed for safe and legal long-distance towing. It can be towed in Arizona by anyone with a driver's license and towing experience.
Only a day permit is needed if it's being relocated within the state. In California, a Class A commercial license, a mobile home moving permit and a pilot car are required due to the 10' width.
Towing requirements for a 10'wide trailer vary by state and should be confirmed for each state. The easiest way to move it interstate is to hire a professional logistics company that will supply all the equipment and get the necessary permits.
