Hi Charles,

Welcome to the club and congrats on your Sunline!

I am not sure how to back into the model year from the production unit number. Sunline Fan may know. If you have the VIN number, that can help tell the year. If you have a title, it should also list the year.

OR if you post pics of the outside of all 4 outside walls, we can help back into the year assuming it still has the original paint on it. Each model year had slight changes and colors/decals etc that we have used to back into a year.

Hope this helps.

John

Hello John,
What part of the VIN is the year of manufacture?
I will figure out how to post pictures here, it wants them from an Internet site.
Thank you,
Charles

Charles,

On the pics, see here

There are 3 ways to add pics.

1. Upload pics to a specific post attaching them at the end of the post.

2. Linking them in from a public viewable web photo hosting service you have.

See here for 1 and 2 https://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f...html#post86041

3. You can upload pics to the forum in your own personal photo album. Then link them to anywhere in the text of a post. See here on how to create an album. https://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f...html#post87945

If you still get stuck, let us know. Pic's go a long way in helping show things you are working on, and we really like seeing Sunline pics!

The year in the VIN, assuming yours is new enough to have the 17 digit VIN, then the 10th digit from the left would be the year. In your older camper case, it would be a letter that aligns with a year. Tell us that 10th digit letter.

Hope this helps

John

Hello John,
I supplied pictures and it replied that they have to be "approved".
A good measure to keep the links appropriate.

What was the first year of the 12 1/2 MC?
What was the last year for that model?
Thank you,
Charles

I am not totally sure, but I can help you look up the answer so you can learn how to do this. In our FILES section, are Sunline sales brochures going back into the late 70's all the way until the last 2007 models. You can download them to look at.

Keep going back in time and find out when that model stopped showing up as the next year would be the starting year. And then look forward in time. Going forward, when the 12 1/2MC model numbers stops showing up, look at the actual floor plan. Sunline changed the model numbers to the new style I think around 1983. So a 1982 12 1/2 MC was renamed to a T-1250 travel trailer in 1983. The floor plan is the same, but there may be slight design changes/tweaks also yet the model would not change. Then keep looking for the new model number until that floor plan/model numbers stops showing up.

Sunline would from time to time change window sizes, door sizes, locations slightly etc. as the years went on and not change the model number. If it grew in length, they may tweak the model slightly again. If you see the new naming convention and that floor plan stop showing up, and it was not in 1 to 2 years ahead, odds are they discontinued the floor plan. Some of the older brochure were split into different camper types. Make sure you find the one listing the travel trailers.

The sales brochure has a lot of good info on your model camper that is hard to come by in one organized spot. Just scroll to your year and download a copy. Same for the owners manuals.

To get to the FILES section, you have to be logged in. Look up top along the forum for the words "FILES". That is a tab, click it. Then select the area you want to go to can read on for hours, days, maybe even weeks...



Hope this helps.

John
