Ah, the introduction...
My name is Bob, my user name is derived from my home state (NJ) and the model truck I drive (Toyota Tacoma).
In a former career I worked for two different Sunline dealers, which allowed me the opportunity to work on many trailers for service and warranty work, and very few of the warranty jobs were Sunlines! I have seen a few crashed trailers, a few abused trailers, and have always been impressed with the Sunlines and how well they held up to both scenarios.
I have had two chances to tour the factory (back when...) as well as the factories of other manufacturers, and that settled it...if I was to have a camping trailer, it would be a Sunline.
So I drive a Tacoma, with a whopping 3500lb tow capacity. That meant a small trailer was in order. My wife an I searched and searched, and finally a trailer in our budget came up for sale. A Sunline 1976 12-1/2 MC. 1000lbs axle weight, 100lbs tongue weight, sleeps two and a dog just right.
She needed some work, and still does, but we camped in her anyways.
I lurked here on this forum for a few weeks (months) and researched, learned things about trailers and camping I did not know, and then...went camping.
We towed her to Vermont, PA, and NJ campgrounds, and had a blast.
OK, cut to the chase...why join now?
Because circumstances in life dictate the sale of our little Sunline. I can think of no other group that could appreciate this classic more, so I will be offering her for sale here first. Hopefully, only here...
Make no mistake, I will have another, but the new one will likely be a truck camper, once I acquire a full size pickup again.
I know, it is bad form to introduce myself in post one, and in post two try to sell a camper. Have no fear, I'm not going anywhere. I still have to wash her up, fix some odds and ends, and take pictures before listing. Meanwhile, I'll be around. I love these trailers, and camping, and have come to appreciate forums in general.
Thanks in advance for taking me in,
1976 12-1/2 MC for sale
