It ran for about 10 years. I believe it was created in 1976, and ran through 1982 as the 12 1/2' MC. It continued on through 1986 as the T-1250, with the new naming convention. That said, they are increasingly more rare the newer you get. They definitely peaked around 1978/79 with the energy crisis.

I have no idea how many were originally built, maybe a 1000 total over all years would be a good guess? I'm really not sure.

The very original founders? I would imagine they passed away already, but I haven't confirmed it. They would be very old now, if they were still alive. Unfortunately they have pretty common names, and I believe they were PA dutch, so finding info as an outsider isn't easy.

I do know that Larry Lawrence, Sr, who bought the company with some partners in 1975 and retired in 1988, passed away in 2013 at age 94.

That said, since it was largely a family business right up until the end, many family members were involved and are still very much alive.

The meet and greet in Ohio is September 28-30 of this year, at River Trail Campground in Mendon, OH. It's kinda near Lima. Here's a link to details: http://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f6...-up-18302.html

Curtains are on the way...finally. We have decided to sell the little Sunline. I have limited mobility/flexability d/t several surgeries on same leg. I really need more room for sleeping and moving around. Will be sad to see it go, was so excited to find one this little. I'm not good at posting, tried to post in classifieds, not sure if I did it correct. Thank you

Thanks! Sorry to hear you have to sell it, it sounds like a great little trailer.

I moved your other post over to create a classified for it, and combined it with the comments you made on my profile. You can see it and reply to it here: http://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f7...hio-18796.html
