you said upgrade the axle? is there something wrong with yours?..Why do you wanna pull the body off? frame repairs?.........Bruce
Three reasons for the axle upgrade: 1) this trailer is 28 years old; 2) I'd like to have brakes
; and 3) I want bigger wheels and tires
on it, 'cuz I like the look. True, none of these reasons absolutely requires the change, but I'm considering my options.
About the frame, it looks in decent shape, but there's so much rust on it that I can't be sure. And the two points in front where the shell meets the frame are cracked, either by compression or bouncing or something. Separating the shell from the frame will allow me to investigate and correct the damage, and hopefully prevent future pain. Sandblasting and painting
the frame are a lot easier with the shell out of the way.
Most of the work I do is restoration and renovation of older (vintage) trailers. That means trying to make everything look all clean and nice again, as best my abilities and budget are able.
Do you have any information to share about the Perris Pacer
, Bruce? I'd appreciate it.
