Hello everyone, I've been reading topics and posts here for quite some time now trying to decide on what little TT my wife and i would go with, we seriously considered a Casita but in the end were so impressed with the new Sunline Que SE that we went for it and pick it up in Colorado next weekend. We appreciate this site because it has been very informative Thanks Que site http://sunlinerv.com/images/files/quebrochure_lo.pdf

Glad you guys got a trailer. Sorry you didn't buy a fiberglass rv!

My wife and I looked at some stick built trailers but we just didn't want one because we plan to have our trailer for a very long time and our experience with friends and family who have traditionally constructed travel trailers is that they all have problems with roof leaks and frame failures of one degree or another.

Yes, you make some trade-offs on space, but we felt we could exist comfortably in the space provided by a Casita. We were right.

Congratulations on the Que. It looks like a very attractive trailer!

Hi Dave

Your Que looks like a nice trailer - roomy and very well planned. I know you will enjoy your Que as much as we enjoy our Casita. You researched for what you needed and wanted and found it.

The QUE has aluminum framed walls with [b]fiberglass sheet skin.
(gotta love a trailer named after a STAR TREK character!)

Well, judging by the Casita Liberty that has been gutted out and offered for sale on eBay, Molded fiberglass isn't immune to leaks, either. ...and an aluminum frame just might be a better choice than wood. Think of all the vintage Airstreams still around.

Actually they have a aluminum frame work with a fibergass skin, but it was still a tough decision going with something other than a Full fiberglass such as a Casita, but we were also very impressed with the warantee of a Que, 12 years on the roof alone, 2 on the TT and it's fully transferable, But we have learned alot here Thanks

Congratulations. Well, since you didn't go with a molded fiberglass unit, I think you've made a good choice. Sunline trailers seem to last a very long time. I must admit they look like great trailers and are a very good size.

I notice that you are in Oklahoma. I didn't think there were any Sunline dealers in this area. Where'd you find one????

Again, congratulations, and happy trails! I'll wave if I see a Que passing me on the road.

Actually they are pretty hard to come by right now, the Kansas dealer has none so i got one in Colorado, In Seattle they had a RV show which sold 3 on site and 3 more on order, so even though we may have to drive a little we'll be set for summer instead of a waiting list.

Dave supplied a link for the brochure; here's the regular web page: Que 5.4

It does look like a nice unit. The option of rear or side door placement is certainly novel, and the lounge/storage configuration in the front of the side-door variation is interesting. The wood looks great, the finish seems very nice in the images, and there are some thoughtful touches (such as the reading lamps in the corners of the lounge in the rear-door model on the website).

The "concealed" propane storage gives it a very tidy appearance. I didn't realize until I read the feature description that it was the lack of stuff scattered on the tongue - in addition to the curved front panel - that makes it look good to me.

With all of the "European" comments in the brochure, what appears to be a Dometic stove/sink unit, and the surprising (for the U.S.) use of a metric designation for the model ("5.4", as in 5.4 metres long), I have to wonder if it is a European design built in North America, like the T@B.

It does seem heavy for the body size: it is about the same length as any of the 17' units (Boler, Casita, Burro, Bigfoot...), and between the Casita and Boler in width, but it's significantly heavier than my Boler.

I wonder how a moulded fiberglass rendition of the same shape, size, and configuration would compare, such as in weight and price?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Actually the sink stove combo are made in Germany, and the cherry cabinetry is very nice and quite sturdy, i saw a 220 pound salesman hang from the upper cabinets, another factor in deciding on the Que was i believe their warantee is one of the best in the business, But we are enjoying it and are totally satisfied with it.

That is okay, I am sure you are satisfied with your purchase, and that it meets your needs and price range at this point in time.

I am thinking, though, that it is like going on an Mac/Apple site and saying you've decided on Microsoft! Best of luck!

Personally, I am in a mixed marriage: my husband is Microsoft and I am of the Mac religion. He buys a computer that is half the price and full of spam so must be replaced every two years, while my Mac costs twice as much and lasts at least twice as long. And is (almost) spam-less for four years, or more.

The Boler we bought is mine: all fibreglass, no leaks, lasts a long long time. Thus the need for a forum like this, where owners help owners.

Embrace the Plaid!

Nice looking camper there Dave especially the interior. From their website, it looks like a lot of the Que's standard features weren't available as options on our Scamp and maybe not even from Casita. Hang around here and let us know how everything works in the field.

I'd like to thank those who have shown interest in a new type of fiberglass TT's But on the other hand it appears by some of the posts if the TT isn't a MOLDED FIBERGLASS TT there are those who take offense at posting on this site
