I went to college in Gettysburg and made the drive quite regurarly, so we would prob. just stay there. I am told that the show is the same time (you know, the Xth Moday throughSunday) every year, so booking would prob. be a safe bet. We are a few years away from that, though. We go to EVERY other show around here though! (missed baltimore last weekend!). We plan on knowing what we want when we go, and finding the best price from there!

HappyCampers is an unknown quantity at this point
I'm fairly close to the Hershey Show, but didn't go this year. We really didn't see any need to go since we have exactly what we want.
Before finding the Sunline 5er we looked at several other brands at the RV Show in York this spring. We ordered a 2007 Wildwood 31RKBS but changed our minds after about my third look at it. The price was good but the quality was only so-so. Then we looked at the Brookside and the Bristol Bay by Sunnybrook, that our favorite local dealer sells. It's where we bought our T-295sr used. The Brookside is the mid-grade by Sunnybrook, one step up from the Sunset Creek. The quality is fairly good and the floor plans are nice for the $$$. We were very close to ordering a new 349 FWSB when we found our F-304SR. The 349 is all but 35 foot and the dry weight is 1400 lbs lower than the dry weight of our 32 foot F-304. The frame on the Sunline is so much heavier than most of the other 5ers we looked at in our price range.
Our local dealer of choice also carried the Northwoods line of trailers; Nash and Artic Fox, as did the dealer in NH where we bought the F-304. They told me that Northwoods closed their production facility on the east coast and that all of the units will now be made on the west coast. Thus raising the cost of shipping to the dealer and the cost being passed to the consumer. Both of them told me that they had to drop the line due to this increased cost. Both dealers were telling me that they hated to loose the line because they felt they were a good quality unit.
Overall I'm glad that I have a trailer that I plan to use for at least 10-12 years, maybe more.

How many went to the Hershey Show to buy another coach?. and trade their Sunline in because the Sunline company closed up.

Maybe we need to poll this? Whacha think?

we went to the show on a quest to buy a new rv and trade our sunline,but it has nothing to do with the plant closing,just looking for something bigger.

I went to the Show on Thursday. I too missed seeing the latest greatest from Sunline. There were less vendors then in years prior. rich2500. One you did not see at the show that would suit your needs would be a Montana Mountaineer 32 PRD, This is what I bought to relace my T2980. There were no Montanas at the show. The 32 PRD is the only one I could find that I would consider an upgrade from my Sunline. It has a nice Bunk room, Big bath and queen walkaround bed. The 32 PRD has been as good as my Sunline was so far and better in some areas. I'm at Getteysburg allot and will be in Lancaster soon. If ever near by I can show you mine if you want to see the layout.

2000 thank you for the recommendation on the montana,I went to the keystone website and checked it out and it does look like a very nice floor plan,as a matter of fact we were in a sprinter at the show believe it was a 311bhs and it was very nice,lerch's rv had it there for $19,999.00 and had sold nine of them and my wife wanted to be the 10th but almost 36 feet that is longer then I want to go I wanna try to stay at 34ft. or less.
