Since there are no posts for the 1958
Pacer, I guess this is as good a place as any to make my first post.
I have owned this 58 Pacer for the last 18 years or so. It has mostly been used for hunting and camping trips and towed on four-wheel drive trails on which Airstreams were probably never meant to go.
It's still in its original condition, except that it used to have an air conditioner which was the first thing I took off of it, because there's no power where I travel. I also removed the tiny toilet that was originally installed and gave it to a ministry bus going to South America.
There are no before-and-after pictures, only before pictures, as it sits right now. It still has the original Dometic Swedish gas-only refrigerator, which I have not tried to use for the last five years; however, it worked before that. The dome cover over the refrigerator vent (plastic) fell apart a few years ago, and apparently there are no replacement vent covers of that size available, so right now it's covered with a stainless steel pipe.
I'm thinking about trying to restore it and I need to start on the exterior, as it is somewhat oxidized. Some places are worse than others and is some minor skin damage on the bottom and sides.
This is an awful lot for me to say on any posts, much less the first one. I have enjoyed reading the forums here and the wealth of information that they provide. So I thought I'd join this vast community of knowledge and information.
See you on the road.
P. S. My wife says that I'm not going to be restoring this until we have the family room done.
