Hello from Indiana . Just purchased a 1992 sunline T-1850 from my parents. Overall not bad condition but has a saging floor in the center of the unit. I have opened up a 3x5 foot hole in the floor to find that some of the joists have bowed and one has broken where there was a big knot right in the center. I am going to try sistering in some wood on the exposed joists. Was a little disappointed to find the joists as small as they were but I guess it held up for 25 years. Maybe I can get another 10 or so out of it. Wish me luck. I am really looking forward to taping into the wealth of knowledge here. Sorry the picture is sideways. Haven't figured out how to flip it on my kindle yet.

Welcome Seetribe and congrats on your new Sunline.

I was surprised as well to find the floor joists are 2x2s but they work. Good luck with your repairs. Can't wait to see more pics.
