Love My Sunseeker

I'm on my fourth Sunseeker and have been pleased with all of them. I have owned the 2860, great floor plan but I didn't like the giant step up into the shower. I have owned TWO different 3120's, (Might still be used one's out there, but FR discontinued this model), and in my opinion, the floor plan is best for a solo, the way the bedroom is arranged. On the other hand, the 3120 had a HUGE bathroom for a Class C.

I now have the 3170 and love it! But smaller bathroom than 3120. All held up well, and I travel a LOT!

JJ only, my cat went to Rainbow Bridge July 2015

I love my Sunseeker, when I'm on a trip I don't wanna go home!!!"

Total days camping each year: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!

We have a Sunseeker 3010 and love it, so much storage inside & out and so much cabinet top space. Now, as far as what the E-450 and what it can handle, in July, we went out west and up in the mountains and went so high the snow was below us and it performed fantastic. Temperature gauge never wavered.

There is also an interesting discussion about keeping your RPM in the 2700 to 3200 range as you get better out put there than in higher RPM when goi ng up hill. Good idea to take it out of cruise on hills for better performance

We have a 3170 and really enjoy it. We purchased new as we considered it a long term keeper. Would I by another SUNSEEKER? Yes. How long will I keep my MH? Well into retirement.

We could not be happier, unless someone wants to pay it off for us.

Do you think the build quality and plumbing and appliances/generator etc would hold up under full time use?

Don't know a lot about the technical stuff, but we bought a 2007 SS2900 a year & a half ago have been more than fortunate with it! Bought it privately on RVTrader, $5000 less than book, former owner was meticulous about it (almost to the point of being scary but all the better for us!), 6 new Michelin tires, not a thing wrong with it & clean as a whistle! Hubby retired in March, got rid of the house & we live in it full-time now. Have only just replaced the bathroom faucet this week, otherwise normal maintenance. Absolutely lovin' the rig AND the lifestyle!

My 2 cents, my first unit was 10 years old when I bought it, water damage (hidden when I bought it) prompted me to sell it. Tires are important too. As far as towing, I tow both a car, or a boat, both about 5000 pounds. We have a large hill here to get out of the valley, it walks right up. Going to Florida last year with the car for the first time, I don't think I lost more than a half mile per gallon on the gas mileage vs not towing a car the previous year.

Good luck!

Not sure if this is the proper thread, but one of my concerns in getting a class C is the amount of noise that will be heard while driving from everything in the motor home rattling, vibrating, etc. Like dishes, cups, pots and pans, stuff stored in all the overhead compartments...

I have always been pretty anal about squeaks and rattles in my cars and trucks so I'm concerned about the "symphony" that may be present and uncontrollable in a Class C.

I'd be interested in hearing anyone's thoughts on this and what they may have done to mitigate the noise...other than turning up the radio really loud ;~)

I think its all in the packing! The first time I we out I heard the stove top rattling. I have since bought a cover to put over it and now I hear nothing but my CD's! ��
