Most RVers are intimidated when they see a vintage RV remodel project, but a special few have what it takes to dive in and git ‘er done. Take for instance coolkx, a new member who joined after acquiring this Pace Arrow 37J — for free!
Kicking off the Pace Arrow remodel with a tow
“…for the nay sayers whom will contend that this isn’t “worth it”, and just to buy a newer one. I paid $0 for it, well, I paid $1000 to get it towed, so I can afford some investment and sweat equity.”
“I am sharing my restoration efforts of a newly acquired Pace Arrow 37j. . . Hopefully you’ll tune in periodically and voice some opinions on approach and to see some cool transformation photos. I want the interior to be ultra modernized, but will likely keep most of the cabinets.”
This project is not for the squeamish. coolkx adds:
“Since, I am un-intimidated by hard work, what would you all propose to address the flooring and ceiling? I have to remove a lot of smoke from the ceiling regardless, and I presume this will promote further sagging.
I am in a highly arbitrary environment with this build, in other words, I’ve never worked on RV’s before, but am very handy and am a tool junkie, so I am sure I can handle most anything. I just don’t like scratching my head on the approach, and currently, I am generated a plethora of dandruff (jk).”
The Pace Arrow has a solid reputation as one of the most deluxe Class A coaches ever built. With high quality construction, sturdy materials and dedication behind it, coolkx should have no problem turning this into a dream machine like this one:
