Giving up on the 2499
Well I'm ready to part company with my sunline after close to 4 years. About 18 months after I purchased it, I noticed some dampness in the carpet along the rear wall. This only occured after heavy rain. Of course by this time Sunline had closed its doors and warranty work was not an option, so my local rv tech determined that the water heater was improperly installed, allowing water to seep in. That problem was corrected when a short time later I noticed dampness in the corner behind swivel rocker. I have been back and forth to the repair shop at least four times and I'm giving up.
These two problems along with others pertaining to the 2499, such as header plate buckling, crack in sheet metal above doorway, fender skirts made of inferior material all lead me to believe that Sunline quality is not at the level that I once perceived it to be. The interior still has a quality homey feel that originally attracted us to Sunline,however I made the decision to go with a trailer with modern construction methods and materials and no wood to rot.
If any one knows of someone interested in a sunline with an issue, I would be willing to sell it two thousand dollars below book value. Everything works on the trailer and it shows very clean, no smoke or pets.
Thanks for allowing me to vent.
