[quote="JohnB"]OH boy....

If this is true, it is truly sad. They where bought out about a year or so ago. Now this.
Kitty, a T2499 with a slide? Really?? I was thinking the same thing myself the other day.

Could be looking at a possibility of Sunline returning to "some previous company ownership".
Yep, T-2499 with a slide, so lets hope Sunline gets their act back together. But, I won't be getting a 2499 slider. Mines paid for and can't afford to spend more to uprade.

Fellow Sunline Campers

I know most of us are RV.net members as well. And the posts on the company today sure have ranked up quite a bit of conversation over there. Almost to the point of disheartening. This forum is mainly just us Sunline folks so I'll post over here.

It appears the company is going through some rough times. But I can pass this small tid bit of hope along.

This morning I emailed the service manger at Sunline on a small warranty issue I sent them last week. Well within 15 minutes at 8:16AM on Tuesday morning I received a message back from him that they where indeed working on it and had passed it along to the Atwood and Dometic rep. My issues were in the appliances.

So the rumor of 100% let go employees was, rumors.

What speculation we can now make is just that, speculation. Having personally been through 3 companies in the northeast going out of business in my career so far, this is gut wrenching to say the least to the employees of Sunline. An old company with a lot of pride which is what makes them the great camper builder they are.

But there is also the business side. We do not know all the details and most likely will not or should not. If they went bankrupt, then the name could be killed big time and the business. It seems by the news stories they have some kind of operation slow down until the beginning of next year. This way they may be able to come out of it and not owe their creditors.

I know my camper will last the test of time as yours will too.

Those that have campers on order, we hope that you will have some resolution and piece of mind and get your camper soon. For those Sunline employees, we hope for them the best. Just like Ford Motor Co. GM, GE the list goes on of US layoffs.

And we hope the Sunline we knew, comes back alive next year and will become stronger for this set back. We need this good camper builder to stay around.

Best to all.

John

That was a good message John. It ain't over til it's over...I believe Yogi Berra said that. I'll keep the faith and care for my Sunline as if nothing happened. If I develope a problem I'll deal with it. That's about it.
