Hi Vickie, and thank you for the photos. From what you are saying the Perris Pacer
has a similar design to the Boler
, which makes sense since the shell looks like it's a Boler
On the nice smooth liner inside the bench: The Boler 13 floor (at least all the ones I've seen), is molded so that the nice, shiny gelcoat is on the inside, and the rough side of the fiberglass (away from the mold when they make it) is on the bottom (under the camper).
What this means is that the inside floor (in the living area) and the bottom (floor) of the storage areas (plus the wheelwell humps) are the same shiny gelcoat. So is the riser around the sunken area of floor (which makes the kitchen baseboard, and the front of the step to the dinette, etc.
I think I have read that the Pacer is more of a "bathtub" floor, like the Trillium
, so that would (or could) mean that the shiny gelcoat side is underneath, facing the road.
Note that the Boler walls on the inside (under the Ensolite) are also the "rough" fiberglass, because the outside (of course) is the molded gelcoat.
What I don't recognize is that "curb" around your photos. I'm not sure what that is or exactly where it is on your camper (?).
If you are seeing light
through the shell, that may simply mean that there is a chip in your outside gelcoat. The basic fiberglass that our campers are made of is translucent, and only gelcoat or paint
on the outside makes it opaque (or more opaque anyway). Now, I'm not saying you don't have a chip or a thin spot that needs repair because I can't see it in enough detail. But there are plenty of times you can see light
through fiberglass and it is just fine, but simply has some paint
rubbed off or a gelcoat chip, etc. (maybe in your photo those are chips from rocks, if it is the front lower section of the Pacer?)
