Moving 1990 T243

Hello to all you Sunline owners out there. I have a 1990 T243 that I will be moving will be moving to a mountain top property later this year. I am going to have to engineer this move. I would appreciate any thoughtful comments. This distance from where the camper is located to its new home is about 30 miles. Once at the new property the camper will be transferred to a peice of earth moving equipment to be pulled up the mountain. On a "road" cut through the woods up the mountain last November.

Can anyone advise me on the following items?
What is the weight of this camper?
Does the breaking system lock when power is not applied to the system?

As I said any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Chris,

According to the 1990 brochure, they state a dry weight on a T243 single rear bed option as 3,210#. With battery and LP gas you are little over 3,300#. Assuming you have some kind of camping gear inside, It could be 3,500# to around 4,000#

Go to the files section and download a copy. See the top of the forum, for a tab called FILES. Click it and go to brochures. Scroll to 1990 and download a brochure. Your camper shows up on page 12 of the PDF file.

On the brakes, they are 12 volt power energized. It will roll with no power applied. To turn them on you need to apply power from the brake controller in the truck or pulling the emergency breakaway cable on the camper with a charged battery in the camper.

Hope this helps and good luck. Pic's would be cool with it setup on your neat mountain area.
