Congratulations to another Perris Pacer owner. I too, am glad you have an older fiberglass trailer. Wonderful choice!!! This is the second year I've attended the Oregon Gathering, and in getting to see all the different types of fiberglass trailers; I'm still partial to the Perris Pacer because of the big windows
. I especially like the nice long one opposite the door.
How long have you had yours, and what year is it? Mine is a 1979, and weighs 1500+ lbs. I just weighed it on my way home from the Oregon Gathering and it was 1565 lbs.
I cleaned the water tank good with clorox water, rinsed it thoroughly, drained it, and have never traveled with water in it. I don't want to haul the weight
. I prefer water & electrical
hookups. I have a '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee, V-6. It pulls my little Pacer just fine, I have to continually remember I'm towing it.
I did ask Eric at the Oregon Gathering, (just out of curiosity) only because I like the little coopers, if a cooper would pull a 13' Perris Pacer? I remember him just smiling at me.
A little cooper pulling a Perris Pacer would be rather cute...I think, but, his smile said it all.
Again, contratulations, and hope to see you at the '07 Oregon Gathering. You will never meet a nicer group of people than fiberglass trailer owners.
I'll let others guide you on the towing. Chari
