Thanks for the kind words. Like Sunline has faded away, Gulfstream has downsized and do not make any motorhomes of any kind anymore just trailers. So the Gulfstream BT cruiser I own with 25k miles now I guess will soon be a classic in time as anyone with a Sunline.
So Your right garaged is how to go. My Sunline was also garaged from the day we got her and when I had to sell it I had a handfull of people who wanted it, even a 11 year old unit and got way above book on it. It was all fiberglass exterior and Sunline when I order it took the queen bed out of the 2753 and custom built bunks for us for the 4 kids ( 1 of a kind 2753) My wife and I slept on the sofa worked perfect for us all those years. I should post the pictures of interior bunks. I have some pictures of outside on my profile showing last summer we had it, I it was 11 years old.
It was like new in and out when I sold her and we used it all summer and traveled all over this country 11 years worth and 60, 000 miles on her with never an issue. Pulled by 98 Econoline van with 5.4 which was also garaged she was perfect cond in and out as well only used as tow vech for Sunline otherwise sat covered in garage it was a perfect matchup.
I do wish someone would buy the rights to Sunline and start the factory up using same building practices with modern new alum framing. They have such a customer loyalty and if they stayed to just Travel trailers would probally do ok.
I always compare interiors to sunlines and the new Trailers on the market are no where to their quailty.
The BT I own surley is done very well and has all solid oak cabinet doors and even stills, interior quailty same as sunline. Sunline was the only trailer that had a great wood like laminate that did not fade like most rvs mixed with solid wood frames.
I am always looking for a Sunline trailer low priced to restore and resell. One that just needs some TLC and a good cleaning, new flooring etc. They are made well even with wood framing.
Thanks again for the compliments. Ed
