Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

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.

Interesting Fact: Airstreams were introduced initially in the 1920s and are manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio.

Interesting Fact: Airstreams were introduced initially in the 1920s and are manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio. The body, a trailer, has stayed the same since they were first introduced and is recognizable by the sleek silver design.   This company has since become a division of Thor Industries and is the oldest in the industry. They now employ 800 people are still manufacture a specific number of Airstreams today. Airstreams are also famous for transporting American officials all around the world and, in fact, the crew of the Apollo 11 were quarantined in a modified Airstream.   Throughout the entirety of the United States, there are a number of Airstream parks where sites can be leased or rented. As of 2015, the company was producing around 50 trailers per week or close to 3,000 per year, but they have revamped this production level in recent years to produce closer to 100 in a given week. It is hard to find a more recognizable object on the road, and acquiring an Airstream is a goal for many collectors!
