Hi Jon,

Thanks for the welcome! I'm from Berkley. I used to store my Sunline at a relative's house, who is since deceased. I was glad to find an open storage spot on that lot last fall, since there was no way I wanted to figure out how to get the trailer up the incline on my driveway!

You had the 1994 2251, huh? A good year, 1994!

This Sunline is my first TT. A nice upgrade from tent camping. I researched quite a bit online before buying it, and I've been extremely happy with it over the last 3 or so years. I'm glad I lucked out and found a Sunline when I was shopping.

Macree

Hi Macree,

Wow, you are close! I'm in Northville. As you can see from my sig, '94 was a VERY good year for me- I've had two. They do hold up quite well, no matter how much I abuse it . A Sunline is a huge step from a tent, but it will last a whole lot longer.

Jon

P.S. I did look through the memberlist and you are the 7th from MI. I didn't check before and I could only remember 4 from Michigan that had ever posted.

We were at Hershey Highmeadow Campground this weekend and there were SOOOO many Sunlines - even a 5th wheel and another QUE! Someone stopped by our site to tell us that her sister owns a QUE and loves it. Unfortunately we drove past the factory on our way and saw a "for sale" sign in front of the building

My husband and I are always on the lookout for other Sunlines when we travel. Last week we were in southern Alabama and we only spotted one which happened to be in one of the campgrounds we visited. It was a T-2553 with the Sunline logo that has the tree. Does anyone know what year model that is?

Patricia,

You're talking my department here! Well, it would have been somewhere between a 1995 and 1999. I'll try to list a description of each year below:

1995: Sunline logo with tree featured above front rock guard like previous years. This logo was smaller than the '96-'99 logo, and tends to not last. They were made by Avery Graphics and the color, especially the red, bled out quickly. I don't think I have ever seen a '95 with good logos. As for everything else, the striping was straight (didn't step up in center like previous years) and featured a new angled tree logo in the striping. The striping came to the front and a new piece of stripe finished it off on an angle, instead of a curve like the '97-'99's. Also, the striping for the '95 was the same as the '93-'94, not '96-'99. It featured a red stripe on top and a lower stripe in green/gray with reflective white and green over top.
Here is a sample pic:


1996: This was the first year for the logos not above the stone guard. They finally realized the sun takes it's toll on them, and moved it down to the guard. The logo was set off to the left, followed by striping to the right. The striping for '96 changed to 3 stripes, with red on top, gold in the middle, and green on the bottom. The middle stripe has smaller stripes over top of the same green and red. As I said before, the large logo featured a bar that said (In the case of what you saw) "Solaris", instead of "Coach Company" for 1995.
Here's a sample pic:


1997: Personally my favorite year, but the only difference between the '96 and '97 model years is the windows. The large windows on most '96 models were split horizontally and had a crank out on the bottom part. The '97 models were split vertically and had slider windows instead. Also, the rock guards seen to have less striping on them and the logos/striping were more centered.
See sample pic:


1998: The only major differences between '97 and '98 is the '98 trailers had white fender skirts instead of the black ones used in '96-'97. Also, the wheels were a different offset than previous years, so they appeared to have a "shallower dish" than the '97 and older trailers.
See Sample pic:


1999: This was the last year my favorite logo, and they put the large logo right in the center of the stone guard, with striping on either side. It basically looks like they put striping from side to side and put the logo right over top. No fancy cut designs. Also, the Solaris logo on the side was placed over top of the striping near where the "side suns" would be, which were dropped for 1999. The side Solaris logo was put on the sides near the front before. They also added a "swoosh" on the sides near the rear.
Here's a pic:


Let me know if you still have trouble narrowing down your decision,
Jon

Now I'm starting to wonder if I'm blind or other Sunlines avoid us.

Between the 10 states we've been so far, we still havent seen any except for those two in FLorida, the 5er we saw sailing down the expressway and a random sighting while cruising down the road.

Is this country of ours that big that all us Sunline owners cant run into each other? I'd expect to see some of you here and there?!!?

Pat,

I think probably 90% of all Sunline's are in PA or within 100 miles of the PA border . We took a out-west trip three years ago and I only saw 2 Sunline's- a '91 in Iowa and a '85 camper (from CA) in Utah.

Wow, Jon, you really know your Sunlines! How did you get so interested in this particular brand?

I think the camper my husband and I saw in Alabama must have been either a 1998 or 1999, based on your pictures. It was the first one I had ever seen with that logo design. I wanted to take a picture of it, but was afraid the owner might freak out. Sunlines seem to be a well kept rv secret in our neck of the woods. My husband and I feel like we are in a very small minority of Sunline owners in Mississippi.

Patricia

Hi Patricia,

I guess it was with my parent's first trailer, the '97 2653 listed in my sig. I took an interest in the very beginning and it only grew over time and eventually I was doing all the hooking up at the sites, etc. I even was cleaning it, as seen in this pic:


We also toured the factory in July 2000. We sold that unit in 2001 and then I decided to buy my own in 2003, causing my knowledge to grow even more. That was when I started collecting brochures before 1996/97. As for taking pictures of other's units, I've done it, but I agree, I think they might wonder!

Jon
