Welcome to the forums. What a beautiful little gem of a trailer you have. In better shape than most of this era. Shoot me a PM and maybe we can connect up this weekend and I'll give you some pointers on buttoning up the exterior to keep out the moisture. That's first and foremost. We can figure out a game plan from there.

Glad you're with us.

Thanks for posting those pics. Your interior looks to be in great shape. Love the old fiberglass shaded fixtures, especially interesting is the round one over the dinette. And the stove ~ how cool is that!

The racing stripe is holding up pretty well considering it's in the Arizona sun all the time.

Thumbs up Ready for the road......

Getting the Pacer ready for the semi-annual Big Sandy shoot.

The polishing has been at a standstill for quite a while as
life gets in the way sometimes. It has held up in the Arizona
sun for 3+ years.

This is my fairly new tow vehicle and I have to admit it's really
a pleasure to pull the Pacer along. The 98 F-150 was more
than adequate but this vehicle is scary quiet and sometimes
you have to remember that you are towing a little house.

Time flies when you are having fun. All of a sudden another year has passed and the Pacer just keeps rolling along.

The picture is from The Big Sandy shoot March 20th which is held semi-annually outside of Wikieup Arizona where the stars come down and touch you at night.

Yes, I know the safety chains are dragging. I just put new ones on for the next trip...... AZP

Thumbs up Pacer Gets A New Look......

Well....... after having my airstream pacer "Mary Lou" for 33 years I finally made the extra effort to get her all cleaned up and looking new.
New, is a relative term as she is actually 49 years old and will turn 50 next year.

I conversed with a number of people by PM who have had that done here in Arizona. But I couldn't find a good number for
M&M truck polishing in Eloy Arizona.

I finally found a good phone number in this thread from 2013, post number 50 by airstreamy, with Antonio as the main guy.
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f441...ml#post1361830
Antonio is still the main guy and I called him and arranged to take my airstream down for polishing.

It took in total about six days and I am very happy with the results.
This is what it looked like for the last five years with my partial racing stripe polishing.


When I got it back this is what this beauty looked like.......






I am real happy with the results and everyone swears it is not the same Airstream. ironically, for some reason it looks smaller?

As airstreamy said in post number 50 above, the number on a building is not used, call Antonio direct if you are looking for polishing. His phone number is, 520-483-5571.

My son and daughter-in-law came over on Easter Sunday and said she thinks they now can see the Airstream on the space station.

Great looking Pacer! Glad to see it got polished and yes they do look a little smaller but I wouldn't want it any other way.
Hope to see you out camping some day

Wow!! She's a real beauty and no one would ever guess she is that old. Glad to hear M&M is still at it. Thanks for sharing your experience and also glad you're getting her out on the road again.
