Hello! New Owner

Hello All,

Yesterday I bought an adorable 1985 Sunline. I do not know the Model, I am sure it is somewhere on my paperwork.

I gave him a quick bath last night and today tore out all of the modifications the last owner did. The original owner had the camper from 1985 until June 2017 and she took great care of the camper. The previous owner lived in the camper for seven months and added some tables and shelves that were not aesthetically pleasing! Unfortunately I did not get any before pictures.

I cleaned out all his mods, opened all the cupboards and put the cushions in the camper and set off a bug bomb. I am amazed at the excellent shape of the windows, screens and cushions.

I have several questions. I will dig around the forums. The two fold down top bunks are missing a piece of wood to go under the mattresses and also the "mattresses?" if it had them.

I need a couple pieces of hardware and a couple of window treatment tracks with hooks.

He must have pulled out with the electric connected and broke the holder and cracked the camper siding. So I need to know how to fix that!

The fridge is gone too So I will be looking for a replacement.

Welcome!

From your pictures, you have a 1982 15 1/2' SB, not a 1985.

Oh wow.
How do I determine this?
Is there a serial number somewhere on the unit?
I have not registered it yet so I have time to change the paperwork.

Yes, the VIN is on a small aluminum plate, riveted to the left side of the tongue, kinda near the propane tank. If it isn't there, I can help you find it elsewhere.

The number is 17 digits and should look like, with _ indicating unique digits: 1LC2S1F1_CD15_ _ _ _

Welcome and congratulations on a nice find! Yes there was a piece of Luan under the bunk mattress. The mattress was a thin piece of covered foam that accordian folded when you put the bunk up. I believe the weight rating on the bunks is 100 pounds.

Trailer VINs don't work with any of the VIN lookup sites that work for cars. But, the VIN should look like this: 1LC2S1F1_CD15_ _ _ _

The C digit should confirm it to be 1982. If that's not a C, then the year is different. B for 1981, D for 1983, etc.
