Sunline Advertising Trivia

Fellow Sunliner's

Here is a trivia contest.

1. What manufactures still to this day (Dec. 2010) use Sunline travel trailers in their advertising? (1 Point each)

2. What manufacture used a Sunline travel trailer in 2007 in one of their technical documents? (1 Point each)

If you want bonus points;

3. Tell the year and model of the camper for questions 1 and 2. (1 Point each for each camper)

4. I know of at least 2 manufactures for question 1 and 1 for question 2. If you can find more manufactures using Sunlines in their literature you get 1 point for each additional manufacture and 1 point for knowing the model and year.

Rules:

You will need to post a web link here on where you found your information so we can all see. If you have problems posting links, PM me or one of the other moderators and we can help.

If no one responds by December 31, 2010 with the 3 known manufactures, I will post the answers to questions 1 and 2. Bonus points to win can still be made by forum members as questions 3 and 4 will still be open. We can always have a new champion if question 4 is updated with new information.

Finding the model and year from an outside picture can be tricky and we may need to call upon forum members to get a consensus.

So yes, this is a contest where you can actually win over the person creating the contest…

Good Luck!

- On page 174 of the 2010 Camping World Master Catalog, Camping World's endorsed campgrounds for the free 3 day/2 night vacation ad in the 2010 catalog has a '97-'98 2653 in the picture. I think it's a '97 vs. a '98 because I see what looks more like a black fenderskirt instead of a white one. I also see what looks like the small Solaris logo sticking out up front from behind that tree, so that eliminates '99 as a possibility.

- In the December 2010 Trailer Life (P. 60), RVSearch.com uses the '00 Advancer Lite that was featured in a Trailer Life test. They tested the '00 Advancer L-25J in the October, 1999 issue with the first Cadillac Escalade, and did so up by the Mackinaw bridge. Note that the picture in the RVSearch ad is the reverse image of the Trailer Life test image.

- There was that aftermarket step thing that used the I think '91 Sunline next to it, and they used that ad for a long time. Even though I do have a copy of it upstairs in all of my stuff, I don't see it in the recent TL or Highways.

You are the king of technical documents... I wouldn't have a clue where to start. Any hint as to if it's in the form of a picture, specifications, etc? Also, are we talking about a parts/accessories supplier, or another RV manufacturer?

Jon, Very cool!

Since you found 2 corporations using the Sunline and honed in on the year/model, that gives you 4 points. Your in the lead.

For this one:

Help us if you can on where you saw that and what a "step thing" is. I'm interested!!! This one is for sure worth a point if you can just give us a little more on this as I have no clue on how to confirm it

So you are heading to 5 points on your first go at this and and may even beat me since you submitted new entries!!

Actually you do have a clue…and I’ll give you some more. Knowing you I have to watch how I do this as I was afraid you would guessed it right out of the gate.

Since you came in with new entries we have never seen, I'll give you 2 clues for today and a bonus clue.

Clue 1. For item 2, you yourself own a product from this manufacture. For item 1 which has 2 manufactures I know for sure you own a product from one of them. Actually thinking about it you may have a product from both manufactures of item 1.

Clue 2. Item 1, both manufactures have Sunlines in a online video.

Clue 3. A bonus. Every time you take your present Sunline out camping you use a product from item 1 and 2. Well I think every time. For sure one of the item 1’s and I’m fairly sure on item 2.


If you still come up dry, let me know I’ll give you some more clues.

So for everyone else following along, what manufacture of products does Sunline Fan go camping with? He brings them to every M & G he attends.

Mike, Wow Great! Another manufacture still useing Sunline in 2010.

That is a 3rd manufacture for Question 1!

That is 1 point for Mike. If you want a 2nd point identify the model and year of the camper.

Now seeing the Page Foam web site I forgot about that one. Tweety linked us to that site within the last week or so about getting seat cushions and I forgot it...

A clue for you since you found a new manufacture.

Clue 1. You go camping with a product from the manufacture of Question 2 every campout. Well you have ever since I have know you anyway.

Clue 2. You "do not" go camping with a product from the manufacture of Question 1. Or at least that I know of... I checked them again last night as I thought they use to use a Sunline, but not any more.

So what does Sunline Fan and you have in common that you go camping with (think question 2) and what do the 2 of you have that are both good products but are different brands? (think question 1.)

OK I'll throw a few hints out

For this question:

2. What manufacture used a Sunline travel trailer in 2007 in one of their technical documents? (1 Point each)

Hints:

A. Both Sunline Fan and 264SRin PA go camping each trip with a product made from the manufacture of item 2.

B. Look in their SOC signature. What manufacture do they both have in common?

C. The manufacture of item 2 generally issues an updated technical document each year to help camper folks like us with their product. What do they issue each year open to the public? And you do not have to buy one to get it?

D. What year would this technical document be issued in? (Hint look at the question.)

E. Blue is a favorite color of this manufacture.

F. You can find the technical document on line under the manufactures fleet site or other various places.

G. For folks new or seasoned to TT's and 5ths wheels, what technical document might they look in to help them select a product to be a better match to work well with their camper?

H. Trailer Life issues every year a similar generic techncial document however it covers many manufactures.

I. There are many SOC forum members using the same manufacture of the product in question 2.

OK let’s see if this stirs up the pot some.

I haven't seen the ad, but those are some pretty good hints, so I'm thinking it is

Quote:

Ford trucks (the best).

Quote:

The technical document would be the tow(& payload/weight) ratings.

Quote:
D. What year would this technical document be issued in? (Hint look at the question.)
If it was for the 2007 model year, it would have been issued in 2006

Quote:
E. Blue is a favorite color of this manufacture.
My ex's favorite color is "Ford tractor blue". He wanted to paint all of his equiptment trailers (he has a landscaping business) that color and would have painted the house (inside and out) if I'd have let him!

BTW, I'm glad you posted this quiz John. If anyone else has an idea for a quiz or game, please feel free to post it!

Clueless Camper now joins the game. YEH

Dona, you have partially answered the requirement of Question 2. Since you are so close to nailing this all I can state is there is nothing way off base in your last post but it is not the total answer. So I can award ˝ a point for what you have correct. I just can’t yet tell you exactly what are the correct parts yet or it would give away the total answer.

The rules stated:

Rules:

You will need to post a web link here on where you found your information so we can all see. If you have problems posting links, PM me or one of the other moderators and we can help.

So if you can find what you stated and show it to us, there is still a 1/2 a point yet to be gained by anyone.

And remember there is still question 3 where anyone still can gain a bonus point for identifying the model and year of the Sunline once they find it.

Some hints: See hint F above for one place to find the online answer you are missing.

More hints:

Question 1. What manufactures still to this day (Dec. 2010) use Sunline travel trailers in their advertising? (1 Point each)

J. BTW, you also use a product from question 1 and so does 264SR in PA, however it is not the same brand if I recall right. If you remember what Sunline Fan’s brand was your 1/2 the way there. That goes for him too…Neither one of you listed it in your forum signature so I can’t give you that as a hint to look at…. But… Others have. Hint, Hint.

K. The product used in question 1 is a very important part of getting your camper to the campground. Don’t leave home without it.

L. Color of the product used in question 1 is black by that manufacture. However they also come in orange, yellow, gray, red and probably other colors by other manufactures.

M. There is a technical forum on SOC has a lot of discussion about these products.

N. For the most part, the product in question 1 is made from steel, cast steel and tempered steel. The parts are painted or plated for the most part. The parts that are not plated or painted, rust.


O. As a forum collective, we recommend everyone use the product in quesiton 1 as a safe part of camping when they have a large enough Sunbline.


OK lets see where this gets us

Because of the white fender skirts, placement of the front door and fridge vent, I think it's a 2007 T-2363 in the Ford tow ratings.
https://www.fleet.ford.com/showroom/...guideApr08.pdf
p.2

Regarding hints J, M, N and O; I think I asked you about a repair to mine but I don't know what brand Sunline Fan has. If I'm on the right track, then hint L is about a different product so I need to do some searching for two products.

I'm off to search...

Aw geez, I have a few copies of that and never saw it in there before! It's an '05 2363 though, because it's the standard style fender skirts, has bottom gold metal but isn't radius metal, and has the blue striping with swirled ends.

An E-series Van is also towing the same 2363 down on page 21.

Shoot, we were looking at it at just about the same time...

It's an '03 260 or 267SR, not sure which yet. Have to pull some pictures because from this side, it's very very similar.

It's a '03 267SR with the front island bed. The corner bed put the front window up near the front corner whereas this island bed option put it farther back. The 260SR had the window farther forward due to the flip up TV shelf being mounted by the slide, but they didn't put one in the 267SR so the window could move farther back toward the slide.

Wow, that was difficult... These units are identical in the rear corner and on the off door side, so the window and fixture patterns are almost identical.

John, I'm digging really deep here to try to find another product that would use a Sunline. Based on what you've said for the possible colors, I just can't think of what it could be. The bright colors such as orange and yellow really throw me when combined with a black option...

Now I'm curious, is this something I have with the trailer, or is it one of my dad's toys that he brings along?
