1960 Vintage Airstream, Pacer 16 ft, Predecessor to Bambi, AZ since new, two owners!

This is one of the smallest vintage Airstreams made.  At 16 feet long it is easy to pull and amazingly spacious inside.  This trailer has been well loved since new with two prior owners both located in the Phoenix, AZ area.  As a result, this Vintage 1960 16ft Airstream Pacer is an excellent example and quite original.

The smaller size makes this a very popular original vintage Airstream Travel Trailer. Too bad they only made 99!!

The aluminum skin has a decent polish to it.  It could definitely be polished more for the mirror finish but it looks great as-is.  The skin is in great shape with only very minor denting and such.  Look closely at the photos for details.  The underside is absolutely gorgeous.  The storage tubes are there and in great shape as well.

All systems were functioning when we purchased the camper.   It has the electrical and is also set up for propane, compressed air and battery for the ultimate in flexibility.  It was represented to us to all be in good working condition but you should assume it will need full servicing.

We were told that the original owner owned a large lumber yard in the Phoenix area.  He kept the camper under cover for decades.  In the early 1990’s, Mark and Tonja Torel from Phoenix convinced the original owner to sell it.  Mark had worked on him for years to be able to buy it.  They used it many times over the years and made several improvements to it.  The dry Arizona climate makes this an incredibly solid vintage trailer without all the typical floor rot and other challenges.

The camper has a dry weight of approx. 1750 lbs and a hitch weight of a poultry 180 lbs. Interior configuration includes a dinette in the front galley and a double bed in the rear compartment. It has a full kitchenette with a sink, and a three burner Princess gas stove top. The refrigerator is the original Domestic and looks new.  The kitchen components are in excellent condition visually showing that the camper has been well loved since day one.  Mark had also decided to remove the tiny bathroom to either update it or use it for additional storage.

As mentioned previously, the Pacer model preceded the now popular Bambi, which was made from 1961 thru 1963. Only 99 Pacers were produced in 1960.
