My first Sunline

I've been camping forever and have had several different campers. A couple of months ago I decided to sell my Coleman Popup and started looking for a small Sunline. I've been window shopping for one for years and liked the layout and quality of them. I am happy to say that I recently picked up a Saturn T-1550 of the 1994 vintage. It's an older camper but in good condition and all of the appliances work. The only downside is a roof leak but I think I found where it's coming in and will be fixed shortly. There are some wavy panels in the back but nothing I can't live with until I get the time to replace them. I'm a carpenter and so it doesn't look too hard. I needed a new project anyway. Being new I have been looking at the repair sections and would like to thank those members that took the time to share their experiences with others.

Welcome and congrats on your late model 1550! They were only built for another two years after that, and '90s 1550s are quite rare! They were very popular in the '80s though.

Thanks. When I saw this for sale i couldn't believe it. Over the years I has not seen one newer than '89. I hope to get the leaks fixed and the battery hooked up before next Fri. I plan on taking it on a hunting trip for a couple of days.

Welcome to the Forum. I just joined here last month and everyone is nice and lots of info here. Our 1983 T1550 has/had roof leak too. But looks like we can repair it too.

We also love our 1550, ours is a 1985. Perfect size for the two of us.

Welcome to the group. My wife and I joined several months ago and have had many nice comments and much help regarding questions. We plan to attend our first meet and greet in June of 2013 at the Buttonwood Campground near Mifflintown, PA.
Enjoy your new camper.

Sway Bar

I am new to camping. My husband & I just bought a 1989 T-1700 Sunline Star -RAY and are in the process of fixing it up. We plan to start traveling next spring and was wondering if we would need sway bar when towing it. Camper is 17 ft.

Yes, a friction sway bar is a good idea. The can be used with and without a WD hitch. With your small of a camper, pending your tow vechile you may or may not need the WD hitch.

Hope this helps

John

PS if you need more info, glad to help. Open up a question in the towing forum on your setup.
