Yes, I will be extra careful on the roof in the plywood is a great idea to be able to lean out on to it without putting an elbow through or something. I may start tomorrow putting a ladder against it taking pictures of the vents from Top as well as inside and measuring them. I'll make a series of detailed photos of the roof and probably that will be the first section that I attack. I will probably methodically post pictures showing when I located it the negotiated price and be very open and honest about how ignorant I am about the process yet with everyone's help learning my way through it. It should be exciting

Welcome Darren! What a great story!! For similar sentimental reasons is how I ended up with my current '97 Sunline, which is a twin to my childhood trailer. I've always said if I find that original trailer, I'm buying it back, period. Even if it's rotted to nothing, I'm still buying it lol!

As I sent you in the PM, I believe the trailer to be a late 1980 17 1/2' SB, but I will await more info to confirm for sure since it could be early the following year too. You're pretty unlikely to see another one like it!

You did very well on price too, especially for it to be complete and not gutted!

Your roof should be made out of aluminum, but as John explained, definitely put something on it before you put weight on there. I'm going to bet your roof vents are the standard 14x14, and they are probably the Ventline style hinge. That's the size of the vents on my '79, even though the vent assemblies themselves were replaced at some point in the past. If the frame on the vent is rusted out or anything, you can replace the entire assembly too.

Can't wait to follow your progress!

Thank you for your help. I'm really excited about the support you folks I giving me. When I realized it was my parents trailer, I knew I wanted it even if all I got why is the frame and a hubcap. I am very grateful.

Can anyone tell me where I can order the plastic cover that goes over the frig vent? I also have an 1981 RB21 that I acquired from people who started renovating and didn't finish. Has anyone on this site "Glamourized" their Sunline?

Roof or sidewall vent for the refrigerator?

Either way, that vintage should have metal vents for both, not plastic.

Yeah I resemble that remark can't help with the vent cover though mine is metal. It was nice that it was a Sunline because they were well made but I'm not a "brand conscious" person so basically I made it "mine" with a partial repaint and decal removal and paint over. Then attacked the interior and just basically moderned it up.
