Downsizing to a Que....

Pam...

In 2006, we downsized to a smaller home... the kids were grown and gone, and we wanted less house to care for (and more time on the road). We had the '05 2363 and really were impressed with it.

We were trying to decide if we would ultimately have more fun with a smaller (easier to fit everywhere) RV, as when we'd started (1970-Scotty 18' Highlander).... or with the room and features of the 2363. We hypothesized that in the future, a smaller TT:
=>would require less of a TV..... help cut travel costs, and the savings would leave us with more cash for RVing.
=>would be quicker & simpler to hookup, maintain, and travel with.

Sunline's closing forced our hand several years earlier than we had anticipated. Our dealer had a well-equipped Que SE on the lot for months without a nibble..... When we inquired about it..... we ended up with an unbelievable trade-in offer... and took it.

Now for the shakedown (departing the 24th).

Frank,
If you need a hose hook up and electrical box your welcome to stop off at our place with your Que for a night or 2 here in Pensacola on your trip down to Florida.

Dave, Kathy....
Thank you for your generous offer... which I'd accept if we hadn't already made arrangements to the east & south of you.
Hope to see you somewhere down the road!

Frank

Well we figure getting to Florida itself is a long haul and the state of Florida from north to south is another long haul so i seen on another site one time where it's members get on a list so members traveling threw an area would have a free place to hook up for a night or two, I know there's times i would have appreciated a place to pull into so maybe this site to can create such a list so no matter where people are going they can have a place through out the country to stop off at along the way, So anyone going threw give us a yell cause we have enough room to put a couple campers up for the night.

Hello. This is my first post as a new member but with some past experience with Sunline products. I am seriously considering the purchase of a Que, if I can find one, but I have a concern about towing one with a small to medium SUV. Does anyone have any input relative to this concern?

Thank you,
Dave Mochel

Sunline Fan is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi Dave,

Welcome to the forum! I can assure you, you wouldn't regret purchasing a Que, even though the factory is closed (at this time). There are many Que owners on here and hopefully one of them can assist you with your towing concerns. You will have to clarify what type of SUV you have and what engine size, rear end gear ratio, etc, that it has. Also, Trailer Life magazine publishes a Tow Vehicle guide in their January issue each year, and I think it is available on their website.

Jon

Dave,
I just posted on another thread here that Colorado Auto Connection still has 4 Que's in stock, It was formerly Elizabeth RV & Auto in Elizabeth,Co. I purchased mine from him a year ago this month, Since Sunline has shut down he has reduced his price on the remaining Que's by quite a bit, He also set up my truck and threw in the battery,sway bar and equilizer bars, we were treated great by him, and even though it's a bit of a drive it was well worth it, I don't know if you've been able to see one in person or not but if you get up around Pensacola let us know and we'll gladly show you ours.
Dave

Also as far as a tow i have a 1/2 ton Ford pick up with a 4.2 V-6 in it and i believe a 573 rear end gear ratio so it is a fairly small engine but i have no problem running down the road at 70 with the Que, the gross weight on the Que is 3500 lbs. so pretty much anything can handle it.

We've towed our QUE with our TrailBlazer a grand total of 5 miles, from Stoltzfus RV to home. Those 5 miles went well. We could feel the difference between that and the pop up, (which you almost couldn't tell was there) but it had enough power.

Pam, why only 5 miles? Waiting for summer?

We bought ours in NC, towed it back to the coast of VA. As soon as this house sells, we're towing it to our home in Las Vegas and from there, who knows?

We just bought ours in December, so haven't had any good camping weather yet. I just LOVE your picture, but can't believe you're towing with a Wrangler!!! It's sleeting here now & has been for 12 hours now. I need a Q-trip to someplace warm

Well, it is an Unlimited. Towing capacity for a regular Jeep is 1,000 lbs but 3,500 for the longer Unlimited.

Weather isn't too bad here right now but I'm looking forward to driving cross country in the spring. The fuzzy hubby and I are debating whether to take I-40 or I-70. We've already made a round trip from VA to NV in January so are ready for warmth.

I have two related questions for the Que'ers.

First, what is the actual hitch weight of a Que? I have found numbers between 300 and 380 lbs. These seem to be correct based on the old rule of thumb that says the hitch weight is 10% of the gross or rated weight. If this is correct, why would an equalizer be necessary?

Secondly, has Sunline moved the axle position forward from earlier production? This is based on two observations: the floor plan for the SE shows a waste bin cabinet to the right of the entrance door while interior pictures show the waste bin to the left of the door. Has the door moved to make room for the axle? The second observation comes from looking at various on-line pictures and noting that the wheel is not in the same place in all the pictures or when compared to the Sunline brochure.

Thank you,
David mochel
