    Need to haul a Pacer frame from Oklahoma to Sam Diego . Firewall , no engine . I measured my plane and itís a few inches longer that 16 feet . Can you fit a tailwheel on a 16 foot trailer ?
    Have read a few threads and most are tri pacers

    What about building a small extension to the trailer to hold the tailwheel?

    Hopefully. I now have a few Pacer driver / Dirt lovers close by . Campfire scuttlebutt leads to dreams . Someone sees a facebook post about a project for sale . Like a six year old on Christmas Eve , minds start to dream . Phone calls are made
    Plans are now being made to go get ď tte prize ď
    Hopefully one day it will be stretched , wide wings , double fowler flaps , 180 hp , yada , yada . Yep - hoping to go experimental.

    Only time will tell - will it fly again ? Or will it collect dust and be sold again many years from now ?

    I hope before Iím 65 Iím touching down at around 30 mph somewhere in Death Valley in it

    Just in case yo do need to trailer it, I have hauled mine on my 14" featherlike. Backwards, tailwheel on the "V". The gear are exactly as wide as the trailer so I had to add a board to the outside on one side and offset the gear, one on the deck, one off. I would recommend checking the height and width of the door opening on a local truck before you go, I could not get it in my 24' enclosed trailer.

    Was the engine installed? One of my former employees hauled a ground looped Pacer backwards and didn't install the rudder gusset lock and bent something on the tail. Will have to look at some pictures to refresh my memory.
