Dave,
I just posted on another thread here that Colorado Auto Connection still has 4 Que's in stock, It was formerly Elizabeth RV & Auto in Elizabeth,Co. I purchased mine from him a year ago this month, Since Sunline has shut down he has reduced his price on the remaining Que's by quite a bit, He also set up my truck and threw in the battery,sway bar and equilizer bars, we were treated great by him, and even though it's a bit of a drive it was well worth it, I don't know if you've been able to see one in person or not but if you get up around Pensacola let us know and we'll gladly show you ours.
Dave

Also as far as a tow i have a 1/2 ton Ford pick up with a 4.2 V-6 in it and i believe a 573 rear end gear ratio so it is a fairly small engine but i have no problem running down the road at 70 with the Que, the gross weight on the Que is 3500 lbs. so pretty much anything can handle it.

We tow our Que with a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, no problems at all:

We've towed our QUE with our TrailBlazer a grand total of 5 miles, from Stoltzfus RV to home. Those 5 miles went well. We could feel the difference between that and the pop up, (which you almost couldn't tell was there) but it had enough power.

Pam, why only 5 miles? Waiting for summer?

We bought ours in NC, towed it back to the coast of VA. As soon as this house sells, we're towing it to our home in Las Vegas and from there, who knows?

We just bought ours in December, so haven't had any good camping weather yet. I just LOVE your picture, but can't believe you're towing with a Wrangler!!! It's sleeting here now & has been for 12 hours now. I need a Q-trip to someplace warm

Well, it is an Unlimited. Towing capacity for a regular Jeep is 1,000 lbs but 3,500 for the longer Unlimited.

Weather isn't too bad here right now but I'm looking forward to driving cross country in the spring. The fuzzy hubby and I are debating whether to take I-40 or I-70. We've already made a round trip from VA to NV in January so are ready for warmth.

I have two related questions for the Que'ers.

First, what is the actual hitch weight of a Que? I have found numbers between 300 and 380 lbs. These seem to be correct based on the old rule of thumb that says the hitch weight is 10% of the gross or rated weight. If this is correct, why would an equalizer be necessary?

Secondly, has Sunline moved the axle position forward from earlier production? This is based on two observations: the floor plan for the SE shows a waste bin cabinet to the right of the entrance door while interior pictures show the waste bin to the left of the door. Has the door moved to make room for the axle? The second observation comes from looking at various on-line pictures and noting that the wheel is not in the same place in all the pictures or when compared to the Sunline brochure.

Thank you,
David mochel

The axel was moved, but my husband & I both think that when we toured the QUE at the factory that Larue said they moved it back. The tire takes up a part of the trash cabinet, and the trash cabinet was moved back. My trash cabinet is in the kitchen just to the left of the stove. In other words, standing inside the SE QUE it is to the right of the door. Our hitch weight is 300 pounds. I think the RE has a heavier hitch weight. We don't have a weight distributing hitch yet. We're going to see how it does without it first. It drops the rear of our vehicle about 2" but sits level with the right draw bar on. The whole rig looks nice and level, and it towed great the 5 miles home from Stoltzfus RV. Husband even swerved a little to see what would happen and it popped right back to true. We towed a 16 foot Sunline back in the 1990's and never had or needed the fancy hitch. I would be interested to know what everyone who has a QUE is using for the hitch.

David...
I agree with Pam on the history of the location of the trash bin....our Que SE's location is the same as hers.

I'm going to continue to use my Reese equalizer bars & friction antisway (I've had the same equipment thru 3 trailers now). Altho we've downsized trailers (the F150 5.4 is now complete overkill), I really prefer the slightly calmer ride one gets with the bars in place.

Athough....if I didn't already own 'em, I'd be where Pam is with hers... and wouldn't find them necessary with my TV.

I did have the bars put on mainly because they were thrown in along with the sway bar, i have towed it with and with our the equalizers and normally i end up useing the bars because of the load i end up having in my pick up so if they'll throw them in get them because down the road you may wish you had them, I also questioned the toungue weight when i was looking at mine and they told me also the axle had been moved to reduce the weight.

One other reason i'm glad i got the WDH is after i bought the Que i bought a fiberglass camper shell for my truck to kick some wind up over the TT so with the added weight i can still level my truck right out and get some weight on the front end no matter what i'm loaded down with.
