Found this Sunline Owners Club while looking for ideas for my 1986 T-1661 which I bought 2 years ago for $2,200. Recently replaced all light fixtures (9) with LED's made by Kohree, they are great, save the battery and are reasonably priced. Replaced the hot water heater heater and pulled the furnace out and replaced the electric motor that was squealing something fierce. This little trailer was well taken care of with no signs of leaks. I will be replacing curtains (any ideas of where to buy?) and having the upholstery replaced in the near future. Thanks for allowing me into this great club!

Welcome and congrats!

Curtains - not sure on where to buy. Can you make store bought curtains work? - Walmart? I made ours. Got the fabric from Walmart. There have been some sources for cushions posted under other threads. A quick search should bring you to them. I took on the project of recovering ours. It was not fun but turned out okay.

Here is the link to search the site.

Happy camping!

Welcome Steve! Page Foam Products in PA was the source of cushions for Sunline for many years, and they will make custom replacement cushions for RV owners. Shipping might be quite a bit for you though, but maybe not. They might be able to vacuum seal them for shipment.

As for curtains, I'm not sure either. I've only heard of people making their own or replacing with mini-blinds.

Steve..I am a retired seamstress with time on my hands..if we could figure out the shipping and selection of materials, I would like to start sewing for you and others who seem to face the problem of curtain replacement. Let me know if you are interested and I am sure we can figure something out. I have been making/changing curtains in my 20 past campers and also for a local used vehicle dealer for many years...Janalee
