A Sunline Camper From A Different Perspective

We see a lot of great camper pic’s of folks camping or driving down the road. However here are a few pic’s from a different perspective.

I was up on my house roof today patching a few loose shingles and I looked down at “The Camper” (that’s what we call Sunny) and thought, h’mm, this is a Kodak moment. So before I took the ladder down I went back up and took a few shots in case some folks have not seen what it looks like on top of their Sunny. This one is a 2004 T2499.

Happy Camping

John

Hey John, that's the view the birds see as they're taking aim at my camper!

H’mm a “Birds Eye View” They better get Sunglasses or they will be blinded by Sunny’s bright white roof…

Or will they see the “Light” and dive boom on it… Oh No… That’s worse than black streaks!

Now for the pipes.

The drain vents are incognito. See here.


EDIT: 6-17-07 Previously I had the tank vents mixed up. This pic now shows the proper Black and Gray tank vents.

LOL!!!

Oh you said “Drain pipes”, Do you mean the down spouts? See here T2499 Gutter Down Spouts - One Approach

Or do you mean the 4” PVC drain pipe over the awning? See here Wet Awning When Stored - 1 Approach to Help Stay Dry

H’mm, I never thought about the amount of plumbing that was up there…… LOL!!

Happy Camping

John

Yeh and those birds had better put on a welding helment when flying over yours as the white rubber is blinding enough. Your shinny silver one I think can be seen from outerspace...LOL

John

PS. I yanked out the couch today and I'm into the HW heater area for easier access. Got ticked last week trying to get in and you inspired me. Pic's coming soon when I finish it up.

Thanks for the clarifications on the downspouts and the awning cover John. That's pretty ingenious!

Hey John B, Do you have the Turbo Maxx Fan on that middle cover, or just the slanted Vent Cover?

We just had that Turbo Max Fann installed over our bedroom vent, and what a difference it makes. It's much more quiet then the one mounted in the bathroom or living room part. It also moves much more air. If I would have known this from the start, I would have had one installed on all three vents!!

I cant believe how bright your roof is DO you store it indoors? THen there is Kitty's. I'm so fricking jealous I didnt know you could have that done to begin with, I would have paid whatever the cost was to not have to worry about the rubber roof the rest of us have!!

I like the roof shots!!

Poor Man Campin'
Wow! Kitty's roof is awesome! I just assumed the aluminum roof in her signature was white like a rubber roof on all the other trailers; baaaad assumption.

I'm envious of John's too; I've cleaned mine with Full Timer's Choice rubber roof cleaner & conditioner, and it still looks like a Dalmation up there! Any idea what the black spots might be?

No idea about the black spots. I've had them too and they don't come off.

Kitty, you should get up and polish that roof to make it shine! They make special aluminum polishes (like what Airstream owners use) to make a shine like chrome. I'd take advantage of an unpainted roof, since all the older Sunline's with aluminum roofs were painted. I guess I just like things shiny...

To the spot watchers.

Here is my trick for those spots


Sorry guys, that nice bright white top you saw was from about 30 feet away. However I do wash the roof and was out there tonight.... It is times like this that I'm glad I only have 26 feet....

Here is a close up of the spots before I washed.


And here is after I cleaned


Those darn spots will not go totally away. And I'm not into trying to rub them to death to get rid of them. When the camper was new, I had no spots. More of like pin size dots. So I read the Sunline manual and used warm water and Tide and washed. The dots would fade.

I kept after the roof every 2 months like clock work. The dots where larger, then I washed and they turned back to almost nothing.

Until 1 time I missed a cleaning and went 3 months. Now the dots where spots. And they will not go away. I can make the fainter and smaller but they are still there.

I use the tide wash then use Camco rubber roof cleaner/conditioner and it helps reduce the spot blackness, but it's there. I think it is mold stained.

The strange this is look here under the Antenna. You can make out the outline of where it covers the roof. I have it up for cleaning when this pic was taken. There are NO spots. Not a one. WHY?? Good question.


I do keep after the roof. I'm back on the every 2 month schedule. And this past winter I did the best thing for the spots. I made my out building door 10 feet tall so I can get the camper inside.... She goes in when I'm not working on it or about ready to take off camping again.

Sorry I have no magic treatment. Wish I did. If anyone else knows, let us spot watchers in on the secret on how to get ride of the. All I can do is make them smaller and less pronounced.

John
