Sounds like you have a project well underway.
If you are sure you camper is a 1996 model, you can back into a model number by looking at the floor plans in our brochures in our files section.
To help you find the model, we have copies of the Sales brochures for most of the Sunlines starting from 1973 and forward. To help you back into a model number, you can skim over the 1996 brochure and match up the floor plan to the model number. The length of the camper in the brochure is from the tow ball coupler to the rear bumper. If that does not seem to work, post pictures of each outside of the camper and we can help back into it.
In our "FILES" section we have lots of info on Sunlines, you can find a lot of info there and a manual. To get to the FILES section, look at the top of the forum for the words "FILES" that is a clickable tab, click it.
Once in the files section, look for "Brochures" go in there and scroll to 1986 and download a copy of the sales brochure. And have a look around in the other categories.
Any and all questions are welcome. Pictures, also helps show us what you need help with. Posting them with your question really helps if you do not know what something is called. And we can see what it is you are talking about.
Hope this helps
