New from Wisconsin

Thanks for the add, I have owned a couple 33 foot 5th wheels. I recently had a friend ask me if I wanted a 1989 32 foot pace arrow that he has. It hasnít run in 8-10 years, has 60k miles on it I am seriously thinking about grabbing it and starting a new project. I know it may be a money pit, or maybe not. For the price I think it may be worth a shot.
Any thing/ concerns I should look for in this model?

Thanks
Boondockstwo

Certainly a Personal Decision, however I'd be prepared both mentally AND financially for a Worst Case Scenario. That old and hasn't run for that long... I dunno!!!

Whatever you do, go in with your "EYES WIDE OPEN"!!!

Jarod;


We are glad you joined us. I especially enjoy welcoming new Wisconsin members. In looking at your profile I see you live in Stevens Point. We are just east of you on Hwy 10 in Weyauwega. Perhaps we will see each other on the road who knows? If you get our way feel free to contact me perhaps we could have coffee or do lunch some day.

Good luck with your project. Keep us posted on how everything works out for you. My first MH was a 87 Pace Arrow and I loved it. Easy to maintain.

Browse the forums that interest you and don't be afraid to ask questions. Enjoy the forums.

Don

Thanks Don, I am trying to get as much information on the 1989 as I can right now. Will be a big project but am willing to give it a go.
