You are quick! Thanks!

What is a Perris Pacer? I have never seen one anywhere, but here's a lot I haven't seen.

Joking? As in not remembering the name of your trailer? I wonder about that but I cannot judge too harshly. I can't remember why I went into a room sometimes.

Looking at interior pics It is a complete reno job. It has ben leaking and I think there is mold. Heb says it needs cleaning. It does, but that includes throwing away anything not fiberglass by the looks of it.

The name “Perris Pacer” is written on the side of the trailer above the wheel well
I thought you were asking a rhetorical question

Who knows what this is?

You can read Perris Pacer molded into the plastic fender trim if you zoom in (and I see Steve best me to it). That makes the seller’s lack of knowledge a bit suspect.

My favorite feature of this model is the huge street side window.

Without a close inspection of the frame and floor I wouldn’t hazard a guess as to its value. I believe PP’s have conventional wood cabinetry, not molded fiberglass, no? That makes for a fair bit of skilled carpentry work to rebuild the inside.

Does it have any functional appliances?

You can read that? Ijust got the photo as big as I could and I can't. Maybe 30 or 40 years ago.

I can barely make it out, but I knew it was there, because it’s the only Boler clone that has that feature. But the seller should have no problem reading it, and that’s the point.

Looks like $1000 project to me. Do you have a nice covered workspace, and have the time/tools/aptitude to work on the project yourself. If not, I would pass.

A few years ago I was looking for a project. And I found one at a low price. But ultimately I passed on it as it needed just too much work.

This one has a good to decent condition price, but the trailer is not in that condition IMHO.

Have you spoken face to face with the seller? If he claims to have both the RV and the title and still doesn’t know what brand it is, there may be problems.
As long as people are willing to pay crazy high prices for molded fiberglass RVs, sellers will be willing to take our money.


Good luck!

I am not scared of a renovation except cabinet work. I believe the cabinets only have wood doors. That's what I'm hoping anyway.
I still have to have a face to face with the seller & the trailer, but he did come back and say he thought it was a Paris Pacer. Almost there. He never came back after I said I wanted to see it in person. If I can get it for $1000 to $1500 I think I will grab it. If not, I pass. I want to get under it and check the frame. I can arc weld, at least I could 40 years ago. Time flies when you're getting old.

I would think, until he can come up with the title, all else is moot.

In my opinion, I wouldnt want it for $1000 unless I knew I could flip it for $2000! BUT, for someone wanting a "project".... it's just not for me. I'd run....

Yeah, the cabinets should be fiberglass. (Molded fiberglass, extra-moldy!) If you feel like offering him a grand or $1500, fine, and if he says no, he can keep it.


Sheesh, some people just don't take care of their stuff.

Okay, fiberglass cabinets. That's a plus. Easy to remove, clean, paint if needed, and reinstall. That will save a ton of work building all-new cabinets. Can't tell what's on the walls. That could be a huge project to replace, or a lesser project to clean and paint.

Floor rot and frame condition are the next major concerns. Can't really tell much there without an in-person, up-close inspection.
