Three Sunlines, in one outing

Kitty had some coupons for Camping World and wanted to use them today. She ended up getting $50 worth of merchandise, for only $10.. I believe it was the cheapest she has ever gotten out of that store!

On the way south on I-81, we saw a '02-'05 T-1950 and a 1980's T-1550 heading north. On our way home, we stopped at the local 5 guys for some lunch. While we were eating, we saw a mid 90's T-2362/3 heading into Winchester, VA... (Sorry Jon.. I didn't get enough of a look at it, to tell if it was a 2362 or a 2363...)

She gets excited when we see one Sunline... She almost spit up her food when she saw a third one, in one day!

No worries! Given the age, it could have been a 2361 with a corner bed or a 2364 with quad bunks too! Chances are you'd have seen the bunk windows though.

Definitely no bunk windows!

That narrows it down a bit!

I was thinking about buying a old cop car, Ford Crown Vic, for some towing. They have the heavy duty suspension, fluid coolers, solid frame so a good hitch receiver could be installed. Still think about them whenever I see on for sale on CraigsList. Could be worse. I could have used the old Town n Country van.

That brings back memories of when i was a kid and my Dad drove a 1966 Chrysler Imperial, he pulled our Holiday Traveler with it. That car was a beast, he had the rear springs boosted as i remember. That was a neat camper,it had the front bunk overhang.... ya don't see many of those around anymore.

We did have a 1976 Buick Electra 225 to pull our small Shasta all over with it. Comfortable riding, great towing and a trunk the size of Texas. If I had thought how important memories would be, I would have tooked more pictures.

We do see some older Holidays but no bunk overhang. The last I saw, within the last six years, was being sold as a hunt camp special and had a 110V A/C hanging out the side window.

I have just found out why the full sized Ford Crown Vic, police cars, will not be good towing vehicles. Even though the cars are V8 powered, have a body on frame design they also have new design features such as crumple zones at the front and rear. Where the old style body gave the vehicle more strength the new design do not. The lighter duty chassis will not handle the extra strain of towing heavier loads so what appears the same design as what use to tow heavier TT in reality they are different.

My families first camping rig was a 1968 Plymouth Fury III station wagon, 383 V-8, pulling a Wheel Camper popup!! What a beast!!! Coolest thing was the rear facing seat all the way in the back. That was replaced by a 1973 Dodge P/U with a wood paneled aluminum cap. Dad built a plywood bed across the front that my sister and I traveled on!!!!

It is. We are planning on traveling down route 66 next September.
We should fit right in. Can`t wait ! The camper is small and light,
Will not be any problem. I can almost see the ocean.
