1982 Sunline Sunrider V

Does anyone have a picture of a Sunline Sunrider V? We've been told that this is what our camper is, but we don't know for sure. That's not what the title reads anyway. (Sunline "Suno") We also received a quote from a (supposedly) qualified appraisal company that: "no matter how much work is done to keep this unit in shape appearance wise and function wise, the fact remains it is a forty year old unit." I'm curious, how does that statement strike anyone else who has fully restored/glamped up ANY 40-year-old campers? I would post a picture of ours but I don't seem to be able to figure out how to. Thanks!

Welcome Sonder!.

We have a 1981 sales brochure ( the introductory year) of the SunRider V which has pics and some info on it. We also have the sales brochure for your 82 SunRider.

To download a copy of those 2 brochures, go to our Sunline brochures in the FILES section on the forum.

To get to the files section, you need to be logged into the forum. At the top of the forum are tabs, look for the word "FILES" click it.

Once into the files section, scroll down to the "Sunline Brochures" section. Go in there and find a sale brochure for the camper you are looking at and down load a copy.

To post pics, here are the basics.

There are 3 ways to add pics.

1. Upload pics to a specific post attaching them at the end of the post.

2. Linking them in from a public viewable web photo hosting service you have.

See here for 1 and 2

3. You can upload pics to the forum in your own personal photo album. Then link them to anywhere in the text of a post. See here on how to create an album.

If you still get stuck, let us know. Pic's go a long way in helping show things you are working on, and we really like seeing Sunline pics!

On the camper insurance, that is a post all of it's own. I am sort of in the middle of that with restoring older Sunlines and how to insure them for the restored value. There are a few companies that write policy's like that, they sort of work like folks who have 1954 Chevy truck restored into hot rods worth 10 times more then they were when new. But, this most times is a lot more restoration then just painting and fixing up an old camper. I my case the campers are only approx. 18 years old and on an Agreed Value policy.

Here is one company who does collectibles. Hagerty They started a year or do ago doing campers. But they where only piloting it in MI then. I'm hoping they make it into other states.

And see here for more info on other possible companies. Each have their own requirements.

And also here, scroll down for the insurance

Looking forward to seeing your SunRider. So far, I do not know if we have a member with one that I recall. We do have some of the mini 5th wheels and the really big 5th wheels made in the approx. 2003 time frame, but not a SunRider.

Hope this helps
