After much searching and visiting RV Dealers for hours around us, we bought a 2008 Sunnybrook Edgewater 266rbe. It is in beautiful condition. Checked it out as much as possible for leaks and any othere problems and found only a few cosmetic issues. We pick it up on Saturday after they make her look even prettier.
We were pop-up people and have no idea what else we now need. They were trying to sell us a sewer hose, what kind do you recommend? There were quite a few that we saw. It doesn't have a blackwater flush, what would you do instead? Should we buy a longer electrical cord? Should we get a cover for it? For the tires?
Does anyone else have one of these units? I know that there is no longer a Sunnybrook owners forum.
Will post pictures after we get it. (And as soon as I can figure out how). We are pulling it with a 2011 F150 Ecoboost with a 3.73 and max tow package. I asked them to put on a Reese Dual Cam Hitch too. Want to do this right!
The grey hose is very good quality and will outlast the blue ones.
We use a snap together system so we can add a longer hose if needed (and sometimes we do)
We have the wand that we put into the black tank through the toilet to flush that way (seems to work good)
We bought a 30 amp extension, just in case it is necessary and have used it in some parks that had hookups that were far from logical.
Congratulations and enjoy. You will figure out what works best for you.
We have needed the extra electrical cord but it depends on whether you are camping or RVing. At the RV parks I have seen you do not need it, we camp in large wooded sites and often need ours. And some state parks sites are tight together also.
We have never camped with full hookups and do not need more sewer hose.
We have covered ours with a very large tarp that was given to us. I think it is on its fifth year now.
I walked over to ask neighbors who have never covered theirs and they had had no problems but he crawls up on his roof every year to check things out.
Okay that's great, looking for a Rhino hose then. Looking through a camping catalog, there are so many things that we could buy. MUST RESIST. Another question: are the carpet for the steps a good idea, saw them at Walmart? Are those folding mats good under the awning?
Yes, you want carpet for steps....very slippery when wet without. Awning mat is very desirable unless all campsites are paved. You want one that rain will go thru which is also easier to sweep off dirt.
Take a few close, easy, clean, trips first and make a list as you go. Keep a close eye on tires and brakes. Have a good spare and a way to change it. See what other people use and what you need. Don't think you will have everything the first few trips. Sunnybrook builds a nice unit, I have a 02 26CKS that I have taken all over the West side. Check everything and know how it works. Example, the two 30 pound propane tanks on the tongue were only secured with 4 self tapping sheet metal screws.
