Hi Jay,

First off WELCOME to the group and wonderful world of SUNLINE ownership. Sunline is one of the very very few RV's out there that was built to last decades (with proper maintenance). I'll offer you what info I can about your new home.

Standard features: electric brakes on all wheels, 12-V electric water pump, 6 gallon gas water heater, 25 gallon gray water tank, 25 gallon black water tank with marine toilet, 32 gallon fresh water tank, double stainless steel sink, Shower & tub, two - 20lb. standard LP gas tanks, 4 burner cooking range with oven, range hood with fan & light, 12-V light system w/converter & chrger, 5" button and Wrap upholstery. Empy gross vehicle weight approx 3600 lbs, gross vehicle weight rating 5,000 lbs. 25,000 BTU furnace with auto ignition.

Others should be along soon and contribute addition information for you.

First thing I think I'd do is get a ladder and get up on that roof to check all seams/caulking. You DON'T want anything leaking. Place some plywood on the roof (prefferable with some old carpet attached to the down side), 2'x4' size would span the roof rafters quite well. You DO NOT want to step in between the rafters or you WILL go thru the roof.

OK, I've opened the door, now others can add what I've forgotten,

Welcome Jays,

First of all, check out the 1989 brochure if you don't have a hard copy in your owner's manual. It's packed with specs and options:

The only other thing I can add is you don't have the only 2480. I know of three for sure, possibly 2-3 more. They were actually quite a popular model in 1989, but my collection spans the last couple years, so this just happens to be a dead time for them being for sale.

For those of you unclear about what a 2480 is, just imagine a 2363 with the bed turned longways and the rear door deleted.

Here's some pics:

Hi Jay welcome to our group.

There are a couple post on here about replacing the floor.
I am just finishing up my floor project. Mine too was soft in the bathroom and extended out into the hall near the bunk beds and storage area. As you can see in my post I had to remove my toilet, bathroom sink and part of the bunkbed area. It also invovled removing the hotwater heater, furnace and moving my converter. I put down new insulation and plywood. If your handy with tools and have the time you should be able to replace the floor yourself.
Take pictures before you start and mark things as you take them apart so you know where they go when you go to put them back. The Sunlines are well built and they use a square drive screw to hold the cabinets and walls in place.
Depending on the extend of water damage you may be able to just cut along the front of the cabinets and just cut out the soft spots. Just dont cut to deep as you dont want to damage the floor studs.
I had to remove everything as I needed to get out the old insulation that was saturated with water.
I hope this helps and good luck.
