Also the wheel bearings...My Sunline is a 1996 and I have no idea how many miles it has been pulled. Should the bearings be re-packed?
Yes, for sure need to repack the bearings and check the brakes. You really do not know what shape they are in. Once you have them done or do them yourself then you know where you stand.
See here for some posts that show how to do this with pictures.

There is a lot of info there. Do you know if you have Dexter or Alko axles/brakes?
See here for Dexter and Alko service manuals that tell you how to do tihs as well. Look here for the "Service Manual"
