Getting trailer tonight!

We currently have a Coachmen trailer that purchased new about 8 years ago. Tonight we are trading it in for a 2002 Sunline Solaris. We still like our trailer however are moving into a bunk model. Looking forward to making this our new weekend home, and exploring the east coast. Any last minute things to ask the dealer when we do the change over tonight? So far all I have for questions is how to operate the slide out and how to winterize.

Although we have been rving for a while I look forward to all the new tips from other rvers!

Welcome to the club and congratulations on your new trailer!

I hope you get this in time.. It would probably help us out a bit, if you could let us know what model Sunline you are getting.

One thing to check for.. The underside of the slideout floors was problematic sometimes. On each end of the slide's underside, check and see if the floor feels soft and/or puffed up. Water was able to wick through the black membrane and soak into the wood. That would weaken the floor. If your slide has had a slide topper (Slide awning) the chance of water getting into the floor was minimal.

Thank you for the reply. We did not find any soft spots in the floor. However, the last time we went camping there was a long hard rain storm. We ended up with some water on the floor near the slide. Would you recommend getting a slide topper installed?

I would not be without a slide topper. They keep the slide roof fairly clean and help keep water off the slide. Very good investment.
