Talking Oh boy, what have I done.

Well it all started with a fundraiser at my local watering hole. Drinking was involved, and the next thing I know I am the proud new owner of a 1984 Fleetwood Pace Arrow. Sight Unseen, but absolutely sure it is worth every penny of the $500.00 I paid for it.


And it most certainly was. I just got rid of my last toy project, now I've got another one, only...I have no clue where I'm going to park this one.

My name is Steve, I own a remodeling company, I am always looking for projects, and my honey-do list is never ending.

The fiance is not super excited about the purchase, but her Mother is! My father was all to happy. In his words, "Thank you for providing years of laughter with one drunken purchase."

I help out where ever I can


Anyway, I am pretty excited to start gutting this thing. I "think" it runs....atleast it did a year ago. Will find out Wednesday!

That it is. I've always wanted an RV. Never thought I'd have one with this much character though.

COOL!!! If you put a few bucks (10k? depending on drive train condition) into it and a boatload of hardwork... you'll have a really cool functional RV!!

Keep us posted on progress!

Should be alot of fun....is there any place for specific older pace arrow information? You know they have the classic winnebago forum, just wondering if there is something like that or a website with vintage pace arrow info.

Trying to get as much info as I can about this behemoth, and a game plan together as to how I'm going to tackle this thing.

Another thought....perhaps just sell parts off of it.

You will see people on here looking for hard to get parts all the time. You will one of them.

Do the refrigerator, water heater, air conditioners, generator, etc work? All those are in demand.

I enjoy bringing things back from the ashes...literally. Alot of my work that puts food on the table is rebuilding houses that are fire damaged insurance claims.

In it's day (or should I say decade - wait no century !!!!)

that was a NICE rv !

my first step is fumigation to kill ALL the current home dwellers that you know are in there !

then hire somebody to do all that work needed - way more project than I would ever tackle - but I'm way over that hill good luck !


Call Bret Micheals - looks like the kind of thing he would tackle !!!

Wow that one SEEMS from the pics to be good buy at $500 bucks.
Just how long is that thing.

also a tip if scratchs are too big of a deal one of the best cleaners is "soft scrub".
that stuff really works.
