Congrats! If you get this before you leave, make sure that they take you though EVERYTHING! Otherwise, you will end up at a local dealer fixing things that should never have been...... Trust me

Bill,

Congrats on your purchase! That is personally my favorite '07 model and I'm sure you will have many good years enjoying it. PLEASE post some pics if you can, along with a close up of the front frame (frame production number).

Well I made it back and it towed just fine! 2500 rpms @55 mph avg mileage 12.5 mpg with overdrive off and using premium.

On the way out to get it I was averaging just a hair over 20 mpg, 87 octane and going about 65-70.

Coming home going up the back roads with some STEEP hills required me to down shift and let the revs kick in and she roared and pulled like a champ. Once on the main highway route 80 to 81 to 84 east she did just fine. Will post some pics later, gotta go out there and play in my new home on wheels. Butler RV was great, I did get beat out of a stove top cover seems mine was the only one without one. HMM, anyway for the price I paid I will get over it. lol

Reese hitch was awesome as was the prodigy brake control. Big rigs were FLYING past me with a gentle tug and that was it. So much for all the worry. Now this was empty, load her up and I think I'd feel better with a super charger or a nice used diesel f-250. For now though it will work, all I need are mirrors, it was tough driving home without them.

Things I want to do are replace the factory tires and get some mirrors, any recommendations?

Thanks!

B

PS: One of the guys that works there and went over everything with me I think his name is Josh just bought one of their Que's and will be joining the forum!

Bill,

Congrats again, glade everything went well.

Wrt recommendations:

Mirrors Ė I would recommend the McKesh mirrors, had them, theyíre great, I felt they had less vibration than any other detachable mirrors on the market.

For Tires (Iím guessing you mean the trailer tires) Ė I would recommend the Goodyear Marathon

Enjoy your new Sunline.
Hutch

Thanks everyone, sorry for the delay in getting these pics up. Wife has been having a rough time with her illness.

I got to play in the trailer for a little while today and took some pics for you guys that asked.

Enjoy!

Billy

Bill, the guy that showed us all about our 195SR name was Joel. He was very helpfull and wasn't it a hury to get done. Don't feel bad about the stove cover, our bracket broke last week and I have to call Atwood tomorrow to see if they will send me out another one. Other than that we have camped 26 nights this year without a problem. The only other improvement I had done was to have the skid plates cut off and with the help of Hutch, replaced them with swivel wheels. I also installed a coat hook.
