Bunks for us. Have a 3 boys 15, 12, and 11. Add friends, we wanted sleeping quarters. Did go with the new split twins over cab though. Figure we can close them off for storage when they are too big to fit.

Oh you lucky people! I like the split twins. The two cabinets near the entertainment center are basically POINTLESS as you can't put anything (except maybe bed linens) up there.

Plus, I heard the twin beds give you better access to the back of the entertainment center (if you got that option). I have to pull the entire TV down to get to the back if I want to re-arrange cables. Pain in the you know what.

Yup. That's my understanding. Will know for sure by first week of May from the current estimate. I can't wait! Been a long time coming before we pulled the trigger, wish they had it on the lot!

Well Jaybird
Enjoy!!!
A lots of fun ahead
Got mine last spring and went to Boston area, Normandy farm camp ground, 6 hours drive from Montreal, and put 9800km on it
I have the bunk also and manage to sleep 4 adults and 5 kids
Great unit, no problem other than tire valve issues, slow leak, change all the valves extension, and installed tire pressure monitor
No warranty issue, the air conditioner gave up and 2 days after fixed with brand unit
We still have snow here and still jacked up on block, just can't wait.....
One thing I should have installed are the hydraulic jacks

Enjoy

I got the levelers on mine, just hope I can get it down my driveway without bottoming out.

Which Tire pressure system did you get? I've been reading about a few and will definitely be investing in one.

I'm so pumped right now, but still several weeks away. Just hope all is in order, already have several trips booked around my middle sons lacrosse tournaments. Can't wait to hit the road with the family.

Any weight issues with 4A and 5k or did some travel in another vehicle? Love the sleeping space but I am a bit concerned on the weight for travel. Think I may have to invest in a trailer.

The tires monitor is TM66**™ Series TPMS - Technical Support is hawsome. Get them they will save the day, and will make you life easier
The weight I had concern at first, weight the unit when new empty, just full fuel. And loaded it from there, we are 2 adult 2 kid
Yes it was a concern we've adapted
What are the brand of your hydraulic jack and where the control are located
I will install them, but needs more info and if you have any pictures on how and where each jack are mounted and the control
I will take mine for a spin this weekend the kids and I just can wait
Regards

Yvon

I have owned mine since last July. Up until now I really liked it. I recently took it back to the dealer for several warranty concerns. The major issue is the corner of the fiberglass cap has spider webbed. The dealer submitted photographs to Forest River and from only one picture they have ascertained that the only thing that could have possibly caused this was "...something like a bird strike". So I can submit more pictures, but they pretty much told me it would still be denied. Forest River also told me I should submit a claim to my insurance and have them cover it.

Don't mean to hijack the OP'S thread, but hope you don't have any warranty
claims or else you will be paying your insurance deductible to get them fixed.

Any other Sunseeker owners experienced this issue?

Sorry for the repeat pics. Every time I attach photos it duplicates them.
