, best offer; This is a repost with new info and flex pricing. Please read careful.
My family has outgrown our June of 1980 Perris Pacer
Camp Trailer. The body of this single axle
camper is about 10' long (not including hitch) has a convertible table, coat closet, refrigerator
, sink, propane
stove & heater, and pull down bunk for sleeping 2 adults and 2 kids, maybe a newborn also as we have found, but that is pushing it. Has built in water tank(s) for washing. Has battery/converter option with two electrical
outlets. Has external retractable extension cord option to plug camper into a 110 outlet. Has outside light
by door. Lots of storage. Very compact, light
and easy to tow. We have towed it when full of gear and water with a 4 cylinder pickup truck (about 160-170hp 5 speed). It did ok up hills, but had to be patient and shift down.
Other information that has been requested;
-The body is 10' long plus a 3' hitch in front which the spare tire and propane
tank sit on.
-The body when level sits 7'-1" tall including the skylight/vent cap on top of the roof.
-The skylight/vent cap is troublesome anyhow and could be removed.
-Removing the skylight/vent cap would bring height to under 6'-10" to fit in a 7' garage.
-The body is 6'-10" wide and has fit into our single car garage when loading.
-The camper takes a 1-7/8ths hitch ball and the hitch system says ok up to 2000Lbs.
connect is a round 6 pin shown in the attached pictures.
tank is in like new condition and is the newer required kind.
-These 1980 doors and windows
lock, but I would not keep valuables in the camper.
-The two window that open do have screens.
-There is no battery
, but there is room to add several batteries to/near the DC converter.
-Paint is 1 year old. We camp in thick woods and choose paint
that's easy to touch up.
-I don't know the exact weight
, but the hitch says up to 2000, so I would guess less. If anyone out there has the same camp trailer and can tell me the exact weight
, it would be appreciated.
-Tow height when level and before hooking on is 15" to the bottom of the ball receiver and 13" after dropping it down on to the ball receiver.
-Most 4 cylinder midsize or larger vehicles can likely tow this with patience on hills, any 6 cylinder should be no problem, effected also of course by how much stuff you put in it when you travel with it.
-Heater and 2 burner stove operate on propane. I believe heater works, but I have never used, and can't figure it out…we live in AZ.
-There is a refrigerator
that can apparently run off the 12V on board converter, or 110 if plugged in. Again, it may, or may not work. We have always had too much stuff to keep cool or bother with it and just used it for shelf space. I have plugged it in, and the refer didn't get cold, but there are settings somewhere that I may not understand.
-Refrigerator is a "Insta-Matic Model IM2 gas/electric" made in CA.
-A "1981 Kelsey Controller and TEE Fitting" are mentioned, but I have no idea what they do.
-There are instructions for sanitizing the potable water system, so I assume you can carry drinking water in it, though we never have.
-The DCV converter was made by Newmark Products of Santa Fe Springs, CA.
-The Range Counter unit was made by Elixir Industries of Elkhart Indiana, Model 302-20.
-The heater was made by Suburban Manufacturing Company in Dayton, Tennessee, Model GT6-3A.
-Things needing repair; We lost a tail light
lens on our last trip. The skylight vent fan blades need replacement, but motor and switch work fine. The table seat foam needs new material. The refrigerator
and heater might work, but I haven't ever used and can't seem to make them work. The foam spay in wall and carpet under the table have some wear. The upper bunk opens and the legs come out, but improving the legs would need to be done for someone to sleep on it.
-All 3 tires
(1 spare) are full size "165R13 82 S" with 1/4" tread at center and 1/8"+ toward sides, no sun/cosmetic cracks, and appear in overall road worthy condition.
