New to us......................1980 Sunspot!!

Roadtrip!!!!!!!!! Sue & I are leaving for Colorado Tuesday morning to pick up our new to us 1980 Sunspot. Sadly, Steve & Susan had to move and therefore must part with it. They took very good care of the little thing and Sue fell in love with it....................Plus, she can pull it behind her Jeep Patriot. We will post pictures as soon as we get back.

We are planning to have it at this year's M&G so if you have never seen one, here's your chance. We plan to restore it as close to original as possible. Luckily, it does not need much work as it is in very good shape for being a 28 year old TT. Wish us luck.......................Marshall & Sue

Oh yeah, we are keeping it..............Sue would kill me if I gave up her potty. I guess I like the comfort as well. We will use the Sunspot for trips where the bigger TT is just not easily accomplished...............like WV. Those roads are pretty skinny sometimes!! Take Care................Marshall

Where in NY???? We are located in the Central Adirondacks (Old Forge) and if you need a place to crash we have plenty of room in our yard!

Thanks for the invite but I don't think we're going that far. We're heading for my family in the Cooperstown-Oneonta area. That's in Otsego Co. Are you familiar with that area? I believe it's the Catskills.

We are sitting here in Denver, CO. with a Sunspot hooked to our car. That little trailer is terrific. I love it already. We will post pictures as soon as we get back to PA with it. Wish us luck on the return...............Marshall & Sue

Marshall and Sue, safe travels back home

Was in Denver (high desert country) earlier this year for work heading up to Fort Collins. I bet the mountians must be starting to get white now.

Are you towing with the Ford? Curious on your fuel milage with that little fella behind it verses the bigger trailer.

John

We have the Jeep Patriot but we did keep record of gas usage coming out to compare to going back. I am also curious. The mountains are very white. Sue wants to go up to Eisenhower Tunnel tomorrow before we leave. I think we will park the Sunspot here and drive up as far as we can go...............there's a winter storm advisory out so I don't know if we will make it all the way. At least we can say we tried Take Care...........Marshall

I'm excited that the Sunspot is going to someone who will preserve it. Not to mention bringing it back to it's birthplace Enjoy your day in the Rockies. I haven't been there but Steve used to travel there for business and squeezed in some skiing and hiking, and says it's beautiful. Safe travels home. We're looking forward to those pictures!

Congratulations on your new-to-you Sunspot.
Your gas mileage shouldn't be affected too much; I know that mine only drops a couple of miles per gallon when I tow mine.
