Picked up a 1974 Perris Pacer ( where to get parts)?

Hi guys,
My wife and I are new to t he forum and to the trailer life. We just picked up a 1974 Perris Pacer and plan on restoring it the best we can. Does anyone have a good source for parts? new or used.
We definitely want to do this right and add our own touches as well.
Thanks in advance,
Patrick

Welcome to the forum, Patrick!

Parts... depends on what you need. Most of the normal wear items are standard RV stuff, available online or at your local RV supply. Others are standard hardware stock. A few specialty items, like door hinges and rebuild kits, door seals, are stocked by Scamp and may be interchangeable with your Boler-derived trailer. Windows tend to be trouble.

What are you looking for?

Thanks for the reply Jon
I was starting to see the similarities in the Bolers and the Pacers. So mostly everything plastic on the outside is shot.
The plexiglass windows front and back are faded but I think I can clean them up but the seals are questionable. Weíre just getting into it so there will be a lot . I will check the biker and scamp stuff.

Plexiglass front and back windows are no problem. Itís the glass windows that open that can get complicated.

Buy the plexiglass anywhere- use the old window as a template to cut to size. The gasket can be ordered online or through a glass shop. If youíre replacing the gasket, go ahead and replace the plexiglass at the same time. Itís not worth the trouble to try to save a cloudy or scratched window. The cost is mostly in the labor, yours or someone elseís. The parts are cheap.

Plastic stuff like fill spout for the water tank, electric cord port... is common RV stock.
