Ok, I've pretty much decided the late model Pop-up has been nice, but really want more amenities. I'm on a rather limited budget, and have been looking at a lot of things, mostly trailers. However, almost everything I've looked at is going to require a stronger tow vehicle than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. That looks like it's going to make the upgrade too costly. Now I've found a really nice 1989 Pace Arrow 37' MH on a Chevy chassis. I don't have all the particulars on this beast, but believe it's a gas/454 motor, it has 52k on the odometer, and "looks" like it's in reasonably good shape. I checked carefully through the entire interior looking for signs of water leakage, but none were found. Though the unit has a washer & dryer, I have no idea if they work or not. It's going on 14 years old and does show signs of age, but appears healthy otherwise. Ok, now I know looks can be deceiving, and I haven't heard it run or driven it yet, that will come if I decide to look deeper into it. The one thing that really has me interested, is the price is very reasonable, and I could pick this up for about the same price as a late model 5th wheel with slide-out. The big difference is that I could keep the Jeep as a toad (3500# empty) and only have to buy this one unit. I need opinions on the following... Pace Arrow... Good vs bad? 1989... Too old? economy...operating cost? Maintenance... What kind of money is this beast going to require in a typical year (average use of 5-6 trips, 2-3,000 miles max)???
