1960 Airstream Pacer
Very rare 1960 Airstream Pacer, 16′ for sale SN SS0350, this is the precursor to the Bambi and only 90 of this model were made in 1960. Camper is 16.5′ long from rear bumper to ball hitch, living space is 13′ long total, very tiny in dimension yet very spacious inside. Specifications show that the trailer weighs approximately 1800 lbs. Original Airstream warranty still intact in closet and original speckled Zolatone interior finish still intact, and unpainted. Purchased this Airstream in 2008 and have stored it indoors at all times when not in use. Interior features new front dinette with ample storage compartments, original 3 burner cooktop, original Dometic propane refrigerator have not run only used it as ice box , original fresh water tank, single bowl sink, and original toilet. This model did not come with a water heater, only cold water. Dinette and flooring all installed new with 12×12 Marmoleum flooring. Original teal drawers and yellow countertops throughout.
New water pump and 12V system installed. Have not used water system/sink/toilet, installed pump and then upgraded to a newer model airstream before utilizing all systems. 12V system includes RV battery on tongue, Inetli Power RV converter/charger along with 4 interior lights for use when not connected to shore power. 110V electric system, lights/outlets working properly, original fuse system still operational. Original sconce lights have original shades intact with no damage! The Pacer was equipped with an in floor furnace which I cleaned up when installing the floor, never used because of the inherent fire risk. We only ever used an electric heater when camping and trust me, with the size of this camper, it heats up very quickly. Dinette has custom cushions with marine grade durable fabric, all windows feature new curtains with blackout fabric backing, and original fully operational Herr roof vent. All windows work as designed with all required equipment/locks. Mattress is from a 2006 Bambi, very good condition, no stains and comfortable.
Exterior of the camper is in excellent condition for its age, only one blemish on the entire body road side minor scratch that existed when I purchased 13 years ago, see picture. Seams could use resealing, did not do this because of indoor storage and possible polishing. Tongue features 12V battery, 2 new 13lb aluminum propane tanks can be polished , and new bulldog tongue jack. All compartments have new lock sets and corresponding keys go with. Original Bargman door lock intact and working with key. Very cool door in door screen works great and is a real head turner. Door should have weather stripping replaced, purchased new weather stripping from vintage trailer supply for this year/model but have not installed, will go with the trailer. Red entry step and vintage trailer supply red striped awning/poles included with the camper. Tires on the trailer were replaced when purchased, they are in very good shape but will likely need to be replaced strictly due to age. New powder coated rims and half moon chrome hub caps installed when tires were purchased. Axel is in original condition, this model has a leaf spring system not the normal torsion axel. I have not observed any issues, trailer comes equipped with trailer brakes but have never used due to the minimal weight of the camper. All trailer marker lights and brake lights work.
I am very sad to let this little gem go, we have loved camping in it for years but as our family grew, it has sat in storage. Electric system, dinette, water pump, flooring were all installed by professional RV companies. Has been stored indoors unused for the last 7 years. We did everything we could to keep it as original as possible, its ready for its next adventure/caretaker!

– Vintage Trailer Supply Awning as seen in picture
– Vintage Trailer Supply weather stripping for door-in-door
– Tongue Jack Wheel
– Red door step

Consider these tips in order to send or receive payment safely.
Know the vehicle’s market value
Be very suspicious of any vehicle priced significantly below market value. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Confirm contact information
Verify the seller’s physical address and phone number BEFORE SENDING PAYMENT. Zip codes, area codes and addresses should match up.
Use email wisely
Do not send personal or financial information (such as your social security number, credit card number or checking account number) to a seller via email. Email communications are not secure.
Do not use money transfer services, such as Western Union to pay for online purchases
Even Western Union recommends against using their service or similar services to pay for online purchases. Be cautious about any seller who will only accept a money transfer.
If using an escrow service for payment, make sure it is a reputable, valid escrow service
Some buyers, purchasing outside their local area, may consider using an escrow service. If so, make sure it is a legitimate service. Go directly to the website of the escrow service. Do NOT go to an escrow service through a link in the seller’s e-mail or use a service based on a referral from the seller. Check the web address to make sure you are at the valid website.
Get a detailed receipt
Ask the seller for a receipt that states whether the Airstream is being sold with a warranty or “as is.”
Get title to the vehicle
Make sure you know what’s required in your state to transfer title to the vehicle you’re buying.
Confirm contact information
Be wary of buyers willing to purchase your item sight-unseen, especially buyers located overseas. Always verify the buyer’s street address and valid phone number.
Verify that a certified check is genuine
Verify authenticity with the issuing bank prior to depositing a certified check. Make sure the account contains sufficient funds and the issuing bank guarantees payment on the check. Once deposited in your account, it may take a week or more for the check to clear. Acceptance by your bank does not guarantee the check is valid and funds are available. A cashier’s check can take 30 days or more to clear.
Secure payment first
Do not transfer the title until you have payment in hand at the agreed upon price (and you have verified that the payment is valid.
Beware of overpayment or other complicated payment schemes
Do not agree to any plan where the buyer asks to send a check for more than the sale price and requests that the seller refund the difference. Be suspicious of any buyer who proposes making payment through a friend or agent of the buyer.
