What kind of camper

Anyone have any idea if there is another name for the 1981 camper camper I just recently purchased? It's a 16 foot Sunline dual axle. The only model I could see was M16RB. Sleeps 4.

That's the only 16' TT Sunline made in 1981. Sunline went belly up in 2006, so you probably won't find much about your trailer.

However, name and model don't tell you much about how to maintain the RV. What you see in a 31-year-old TT is what you get. The only thing that might be weird about your trailer is the tandam axles on a 16' RV trailer. Most 16' RVs had a single axle.

As to how to care for and replace appliances and other components, go to the website of the appliance or component manufacturer. The manual for my TT is one page long, with info only on the frame and insulation built in. But it includes a coupla dozen or so sheets from the manufacturers of the various components with specs and care for those components. Water heater, water pump, jonnie, furnace, axles, tires, AC, cooktop, oven, awning, "rubber" roof, etc.

Yeah. I kind of figured. Everything works on it and its in pretty good shape. I just wasn't sure if there was another name other than a 16 RB which pretty much means 16 foot rear bath. I saw an old brochure that called it a "Sportable" I think
