Not-a-tent is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi everyone.

I just bought a 1985 Sunline T-1661 a couple of days ago. It appeared to be lightly used but time and the elements have taken their toll. So there is some work to be done, particularly on the exterior. It will be a winter project and hopefully be ready to try out next year.

Iím brand new to this RV thing. My wife and I retired several years ago. Since then weíve taken a few long (one to two month) shoulder season road trips to explore places in the U.S. and Canada that weíve always wanted to see. Those trips included a lot of tent camping, which we both enjoy. But it seems we encountered more than our fair share of cold and wet weather - and that gets old pretty fast.

So we decided to try a small travel trailer for our next trip. Iíve got a lot to learn Ė about towing the trailer, setting it up at a campsite, using the appliances, maintenance, and fixing it up. Which means I have a lot of questions (including some I don't know enough to ask). There appears to be a wealth of information available on this site and I hope youíll bear with me as I try to tap it and bring myself up to speed.

Welcome Dave. I just joined the group this past summer after I purchased a '92 T-1550. Yeah, there's lots of useful info in here and lots of helpful people. Glad you finally got out of that tent, you'll be glad you did. I tent camped also for many years, then did the pop-up thing and finally got into the hardside a few years ago. Would never go back. I had a Class A for awhile but fuel got too costly and I like having transport after setting up. Happy camping.
