I was over at the Open Roads forum last night and found this article from RV Business. Sorry for not posting it right away.


"Sunline Coach Co. Shuttered, Continues to Explore Options
Longtime towable builder Sunline Coach Co. continues to search for a buyer after ceasing operations November 15, and placing a "For Sale" sign on the internet's most prominent retail clearinghouse.

"We're approching the sale from two perspectives" said Joe Bucara, Sunline president and COO, in an interview with RV Business in early January. "One is to sell the total business, including the company's intellectual property. We are also looking at selling the intellectual property exclusively. We have had interest in both propositions".

The article goes on to say that an auction with both options is being explored for an offering on eBay.

According to Bucara, Sunline began activly seeking a buyer in early 2006 "intelligently, not desperatly". In early November, the search for a buyer took on a more desperate tone.

Bucara states that should a buyer be found, production could be up and running in 90 days or less.

Bucara was part of an investment group that included Paul Kozloff, Bruce Cobb and John Whitehall, which purchased the family owned firm in February of 2004. Cobb left the company in 2005. Dale Zimmerman, son of original owner John Zimmerman, stayed on as vice president of production."


Here is the link if anyone is interested in following the discussion:

I have checked eBay and there is no sign of it, so nothing has been done yet as to an auction of the company. So a spark still flickers...

Hi John,

Tell me about it! I too never thought a whole company would be put on eBay, let alone Sunline. I keep watching eBay every day, and I have yet to see the company on there. I'll let everyone know if it does show up.

Jon
