Dos Palmas

A Vacation Home in Patagonia

Book a stay

Dos Palmas is a lovingly restored 1958 Spartan “Imperial Villa” trailer located in the heart of Patagonia, Arizona. Built by the Spartan Aircraft Co. of Tulsa, Oklahoma, this travel home is indeed the same style as the one Luci & Desi used to tour the US in the film “The Long Long Trailer”.

The Backstory

The trailer was purchased new and put on a double town lot in Patagonia in 1959. The restoration process began in 1999 when it was purchased from the estate of the original owner by two local conservationists. The property is now proudly owned and managed by a multi-generational family all of whom call Patagonia home.

The Particulars

Our version serves as a two-bedroom, one-bath vacation getaway that sleeps three. It has a living area plus a fully furnished kitchen and a dining area making it perfect for early morning coffee or a home-cooked meal. Retro accessories used throughout provide a flashback to life in mid-century America.

The Amenities

The rental features a private fenced yard, covered patio, a gas fire pit, off street parking and laundry facilities.


When you are ready to venture out of the ’50s, Dos Palmas is located within walking distance of retail shops and galleries, restaurants and markets.

Hesitant to write a public review for fear of this being rented next time I want to stay there. Very clean, great location, perfect for us. Y

Dos Palmas will blow you away if you are expecting a trailer

Super base camp for enjoying the village, the mountains, the history.

This place is adorable!

This place is adorable! Clean, plenty of space (two of us). Samantha went out of her way to make our visit special. I would definitely book here again, if only even to enjoy the nostalgia of this property. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!

Centrally located but private

We loved the private courtyard and watching all the birds and stars at night. It really extends the living space. The trailer is adorable and very comfortable. It has everything you need. My family loved it and we will definitely come back. Everything was perfect and excellent communication from Linda and Samantha.

Love, Love, Loved it!!!

Excellent location in town. Incredibly clean w/ personal home feel. Quality cookware, bedding, Wi-Fi, and the list goes on.

A great find in beautiful Patagonia

This was a great find in quaint and beautiful Patagonia. The trailer was cute, cozy and clean. We were very comfortable and Samantha gave us some good info for close hikes and birding.
