1985 16' Sunline TT

We are going to look at a 1985,16'TT on Sat to replace our 12 1/2 MC we just sold. Does anyone know the dry wt (approx)? Seller not sure, also anything special I should check on this model? It looks to be mostly original except for curtains & cushions
Any input appreciated..Thanks

If it is the one on Facebook, I was just talking about that model this afternoon. If I had known about Sunlines sooner that would have been the model I would have sought out. T1661?

16' was a weird range for Sunline, some were single axle and some were tandem. Weight can vary due to that. Have to know a floorplan to drill down on weight.

Is it the same one listed here in Dover, OH?

1985 16' Sunline just came up on Facebook

If so, that's a T-1661. 2630 lbs.

Thatís the dry weight? Sounds more like the GVWR.

Correct, GVWR. Dry weight is irrelevant besides when packing it with stuff.

here's an idea

I wasn't 100% sure what our dry weight was either. So I emptied everything (personal stuff) out of the trailer, all tanks were empty. then I drove to the nearest weigh scale. The one I used was where we take scrap metal. I went up to the window and told the girl my intentions.

I drove tow vehicle and trailer on to the scale. Got the total weight. Then I went back to the parking lot and unhooked the trailer from the tow vehicle and weighed just the car. Total weight subtract tow-vehicle weight is the actual dry weight of the trailer . She gave me a print-out of the two weights and I gave her $5 to buy coffees.

The only extras I had was an awning and an AC unit and a second battery. Take all that into consideration when weighing. But that was the dry weight of my trailer. Can't remember the weight because that was a few years ago and have sold the trailer since.
Hope that helps
