Bugbite,

"IF" you have your heart set on a 1950, don't settle for something else. You will regret it in the end. Is there anyway possible for you to travel north to purchase a 1950? I'm guessing you work, but maybe you could take like a friday & monday off, arrange a saturday Sunline pickup date and have 2 days to get home?

Just a thought. I once did the "settle" for something other (brand X) than a 1950, and it ended up costing me big time. Could not get anywhere near the $$ return on the other trailer. Actually, I have always made $$ on the Sunlines I have owned and sold.

HUM, I plan to head west on July 10th, shame I'll be towing or I could bring a 1950 to TN for you.

Keep us posted.

Kitty

Gosh how does that do?
Bugbite,

The 2653 was actually my parents' trailer. We owned it for 5 wonderful years and I would love to find it again and buy it, whatever the cost. Actually, I don't have a Sunline right now- all four in my sig have been sold.

As for towing the 2653, we started out pulling it with a '96 Explorer V6. That was an upgrade from the previous '91 Explorer V6, which was a lot better than the '96. The '96 pulled the TT horribly and we upgraded after a year of having the TT to a '98 Navigator. That 5.4L V8 pulled the TT perfectly and it was a good combo, so good that when the lease was up in 2000, we got another. But then the TT got sold (upgraded to a MH), so the need for the large TV was not there. Now I have a Excursion, which isn't diesel, but is the cream of the crop for TV's.

Ah good tow vehicle

>> Now I have a Excursion, which isn't diesel, but is the cream of the crop for TV's. <<

Yep asked about the Excursion, I have seen them. So what MPG do you get :P Heard they were real brutes from the spouse here.

So you left the Sunline family? My goodness! So what did you buy instead?

On the new Sunlines no chance for a 12 yr. warranty on the roof right?

Bugbite,

The best I've gotten is 15.1 solo on the highway. City is about 9-13, depending on terrain and your foot. Towing is about 6 for a heavy trailer, 8-9 for an average size. Those figures are for the gasser V10. Diesel however can get upwards of 21 Hwy (solo) if it's equipped with proper aftermarket stuff. Stock, the 7.3L get about 17-18 Hwy, 13-15 city, and about 13 towing on the highway. The city # drops a lot in the middle of winter with cold starts, etc, which do suck up fuel. A very cold, bad day would be about 11-12. I've heard that the '03-'07 6.0L can get better mileage (maybe mid-20's), but I can't confirm that.

I haven't left the Sunline family totally. After all, I do sleep in one every night (see post called "The secret is out..." in Sunline community), but I am currently looking for another Sunline. I don't have any RV at the moment. My parents however do have a Fleetwood MH and Weekend Warrior toy hauler.

I don't see any reason why you wouldn't get a warranty on the roofs. The roof material is made by a separate company and should be warrantied by them. If it wasn't, I'd be surprised. The old roofs used to carry a 10 year warranty, but the company has now upgraded to a 12 year because the product is a little more devoloped and has improved some over the years. I don't think they would lessen the amount of time. The only thing is, if you have a problem down the road from a seam leaking, and it does damage to the sidewalls, that is a manufacturer/installer problem, not the roof manufacturers' problem. So, you would have to pay out-of-pocket to fix that part. The roof warranty itself should only cover the roof tearing, cracking, or leaking in some place not in the seams. Depending on the dealer you buy it from, if the roof leaked at a seam within the first year or so, it may be included if the dealer gave you a tongue-to-bumper warranty on the whole coach.

Bugbite,

The 12 year warrantee on the roof material, it exactly that. A warranty on the "material", not the wood underneath it. Just the very thin sheet of vinyl or rubber. Most rubber or vinyl roofs don't fail, the lack of maintenance of any and all seams are what fails. And when they fail, this allows water to seep into the wood areas, thus "wood-rot". Many folks have been dissappointed that their wood damage was not covered under "roof" warranty, but the damage was caused by lack of maintenance not the roofing material failing. ALL openings on the roof need to be checked for proper sealing.

Also, on the front of the trailer where the aluminum or fiberglass wraps up the front of the trailer and meets the roof material, that is a place where the material often pullls out from under the trim strip and once it starts to pull out, air gets in that 1/2 inch gap while your cruzing down the road, then you have a 2.5 inch gap, next trip it's a 6 inch gap, etc.

SO good caulking is imperative. Most if not all leaks are lack of mainetnance and not the roof material itself failing. And yes, units can and do come right from the factory improperly caulked.

Kitty

Morning Bugbite,

Hey,
IF it will help any, tell your "hubby" that I'm a single gal and chose Sunline for their reliability. And that I know this first hand as I've had 9 used Sunline (all trouble free) and finally managed to order a new one. Being single I basically "demanded" great quality and trouble free with just routine maintenance.

Kitty

Now that is one testimonial. I admire you striking out on your own. I know a granny that drives a Class C all over the place. She is a member of a camping group.

She met up w/ us in 2005 at Destin. She also is a Terrier lover. She had 3 w/ her.
