Part Suppliers and Repair Facilities

Reading some posts I got the idea to maintain a list of suppliers and repair facilities that members have used and/or are familiar with and would recommend to other members when looking for parts and/or a facility to help in repairing and maintaining their Sunlines.

Please let me know if you have any vendors you would like added to the list and if you recommend them and/or have used them via replies to this post.

Thanks
Hutch

This only applies to the newer Sunline's. The older ones ('92-~'02) used Tri-Mark locksets and keys.

Hutch,
We've used PPl (http://www.pplmotorhomes.com) for parts. We actually found our Atwood oven model and bought an extra rack for it. They were reasonable and shipped on time.

Hutch, In speaking with a dealer from Ephrata yesterday at the RV Show, he mentioned that one of his relatives supplied most of the interior wood products for Sunline (cabinet doors were mentioned), and that he may have some leftovers. Their website is as follows:

Hutch,

For a recommended dealer I'd like to submit Campers Barn in Kingston, NY. They are an ex-Sunline dealer and are being owned and run by the employees, as of 2008. One of the management team, Gary, is an ex-Sunline rep.

Anyway, they did a superb job of repairing the header on my 2006 T2499. Expensive, as you would expect at a dealer, but the quality of the job was worth it! They are committed to customer satisfaction and the service rep, Rich, bent over backward to make sure that the job was done right. I definitely recommend them and coming from me that means a lot because I tend to be very critical about work done for me.

I bought my 2006 T-1950 new at Camers Barn. In a week I found the water heater leaked. They were great people to do business with and they immediately took care of the water heater. I bought the unit after Sunline closed their doors and without me even asking, they gave me the three year warranty in writing to be carried by themselves. I guess they feel safe with a Sunline.

That's odd, we bought our 264 from Campers Barn, and they would only give us a 1 yr warranty. Maybe things have changed, but at the time I wouldn't have taken it back for any work after all the complaints I heard about their service department. When we went to make the deal, we took the 2 door explorer with a V6 and they said it would tow the trailer with no problems, but they wanted us to sign some kind of waiver. We just laughed as we walked out the door and said we would be back in 2 weeks to pick it up.

Ditto to that! We purchased our 2499 from them in April 07 and I knew more about the Sunline than the salesperson......and Gary told us that our 1950 wasn't worth what I expected to get.....we walked out the door and almost made it to the truck before they had a change of heart!!!!

They had the trailer we wanted and after we agreed on price - I was told I was "killing them" with what I was willing to pay and what I was expecting from our trade.....anyway we haven't been back to them since!!!

I hate to break up the party here, but I vote for not including any dealers as recommended unless they have actual Sunline parts in inventory (like Stoltzfus, Martin's Camper Sales in Mechanicsburg, and Butler)

There will always be differing opinions on dealers and that can be a separate thread by itself.

Eventually, no dealer will have "actual Sunline parts"
And I'm not sure what "actual Sunline parts" means. Did Sunline make any parts after they stopped making the cabinets?
The majority of (if not all) the parts that Sunline used in their trailers where made by other OEMs.

That's why it's important to have a thread for members of the club to share their opinions.
So my vote is that this is as good a thread as any to allow club members to share their opinions of dealerships.

Yes, there are very few Sunline specific parts. But, Stoltzfus has the $40 logos, Martin's had some Sunline tire covers and some fender skirts (the plant/company that made some of these burned down, so these are the only ones), and Butler had some tire covers and the Que interiors last I knew. It's my understanding that not only did they have cushions, but they also had matching trim pieces like valances to match the interiors.

By Actual Sunline Parts, I meant things only used on Sunline's, not something like a fresh water inlet which can be found at any RV dealer.

Owner used to be Service manager for a Balt. Area Sunline dealer and went out on his own. He repacked bearings, inspected roof and brakes, and adjusted our awning. I was pleased with his work, he wasn't overly expensive, and I especially liked the part where I didn't have to move it.

Trailer Tires in Maryland/Virginia - Donald B. Rice

I just had a great experience dealing with Donald B. Rice tires in Frederick, MD. Other places had to order tires with a 3-7 business day wait but Donald B. Rice had 3 models in stock (ST 205/75 R14 - Carlisle, Goodyear and Carrier) at prices that were reasonable.

Here's their website showing locations: Rice Tire - MD, VA, DC | Auto Truck Tire Service Donald B Rice Tire Company VA, MD
