Carpeting question..

Years ago Sunline construction began with the floor of the frame being covered from front to rear with the vinyl floor covering in one sheet ( that's what I observed on a tour of the manufacturing building way back when!) and any carpet was installed directly over the sheet viny in desired areas...however, at some time or another that practice ended as the vinyl flooring became better quality and therefore, more expensive. So then it became vinyl only in select areas,such as bath and kitchen, and carpet (much less expensive) became the choice for the living areas. Does anyone know when that changed? My friend's 1996 was all vinyl,no carpet,but my '95 does have carpet in the dining area(which is going to be removed next Spring)...just wondering...

Hi Janlee,

I do not know the "when" it changed but I can confirm by the 2004 models, (built in later 2003) that the vinyl only goes about 6" under the carpet pending the floor plan. Some floor plans may have more but it does stop and not cover the entire camper if carpet is in the layout.

Hope this helps

John

My '98 270SR (2653 with a slide) had a sheet of vinyl from the very front all the way back until just about the front of the bed frame. So the last 6' or so was bare wood with the carpet over it. A second piece of vinyl was over top from the very front to somewhere in the living room, so the kitchen had double layer flooring.

That 270SR was such a nice floor plan--my girlfriend has one with twin beds--wonder why they didn't continue building them seeing as how popular the 2653 is.

Agreed! I just wish it had the nice oak edge counters and stuff of a Solaris. Mine was missing the chair, so it seemed awkward to have such a big living room without that. With a nice chair, that living room would have been perfect.

I still haven't figured out how the 2553 made it all the way to 2007, but the 2653 did not. I would have bought that if I had the choice.

Our 1995 2653 had vinyl front kitchen to rear bedroom entrance. We pulled up the carpet to replace it and found the vinyl flooring had shrunk and torn in places.
