Don't say SUNLINE.....90% + is generic, well known mfg.'s parts. or easily matched from most RV supply catalogs.

PS Since you're in OC, MD (yes, he does work at the beach) and your dealer is balking already, call:

Ditto! Except for the floor plan and the walls, there is not much that is Sunline specific in these units. All of the appliances, fittings, parts, and pieces are RV industry standard items that can be easily matched and replaced. The entire running gear is standard AL-Ko or Dexter or another common brand. Axles, brakes, bearings, wheels and tires are all common items.

Don't tell anyone at an RV parts counter that you need to fix the fridge in a Sunline as they'll just get a glazed look in their eyes and fixate on the fact that Sunline is out of business. Instead tell them you need to fix a Dometic 2452 or whatever model you have.

Your RV dealer should know better. When he says getting parts could be a problem, he really means, "Buy a new TT from me." Getting parts is NOT a problem (even for the older units for the most part.) It burns me that dealers do this instead of being fair and honest.
