We have a beautiful 1951 Spartan Imperial Mansion located in Julian, CA. It was originally moved to this location by a 3/4 tonne pickup truck. We are not looking to break the bank on this move. We would like any suggestions on companies you might have used before or someone you might know. We are looking to move it to either GA or SC in possibly October. Thanks.

Hi Spartan & welcome,

If you do decide to have you beauty towed I think it would be wise to get here new tires, even though her present tires look fine. Tires age very quickly, especially when they are not moving, and even though the treads might look fine the rubber compound has certainly aged a lot. You don't want a tread belt separate while towing at 60 miles an hour, it does nothing good to the underside of your trailer. Trust me, I know from personal experience....
