Want a larger Sunline

I have a T-1661 that I love. My wife wants a larger camper with a walk-around queen bed. I like the T-2499. We are also looking at larger units up to 27' or so. I just bought a 1999 Suburban 1500. It is rated for 7300 lbs towing. My question is; how large a Sunline can I comfirtabky tow?

Welcome jsm! We currently have a T-257SR which has a GVW of 7,000 pounds with an UVW of 5,352 pounds. I have plans to put ours on the market after this camping season and upgrade to a bunkhouse model as the kids are getting bigger and requiring more space. We are the second owners and am happy to say I think we are making the original owners proud in keeping the unit in great shape. If you have any interest or questions let me know and I can get some pictures and/or info to help you out.

Thanks,

Swan,
I would be interested, except for the distance. I am in NY. Looks like you are towing with a 3/4 ton. Have you towed it with a 1/2 ton?

JSM,

We bought the unit from family who towed it with a Dodge Ram 1500. They had no issues. I am towing with a 3/4 ton with plans to upgrade to a larger unit as mentioned before. The distance to me is no issue if I can find our Sunline a good home. I haven't visited NY in a long time and would like to get up there again so this might be a good opportunity. I'll send some pictures in a seperate post.

Thanks,

The shower has the "disappearing shower door". A very nice feature in my opinion.

This unit also has what I have learned is called the SE package. This is a smooth fiberglass exterior rather than the more common aluminum exterior. This is our setup at Curry Hammock State Park on Marathon in the Florida Keys.

Kevin & Gretchen,
Your trailer looks great, but I will pass. I like the other layout with the rear seating area. Besides, my wife hates slide outs.
Regards,
Jim
