Sunnybrook Owner Looking for same.

My name is Jack and I am the owner of an 2008 Sunnybrook, Bristol Bay and was wondering if there are any other owners of said Fifth Wheel. Please reply if you are. Looking forward to meeting you.

Not necessarily for that particular model, but you will find a LOT of SB owners and former owners (myself included) at this forum:

MyRVTalk.com

You can view most of it without registering, but I would strongly suggest that you register and begin enjoying the info available there.

Hi Jack,
I'm a newbie to RVs. My wife and I are looking to buy our first and we are going to look at a used 2007 Bristol Bay model 3150. I was actually searching on the forums to see what people think of these units.

Biggest concern for me is a quality built unit.

I can give you the entire story... all the research I've done... the discussion between Class A, TT and 5er... but this unit, with the tow vehicle (a 2001 Ford F250 Diesel) seems to be one we could afford to get into and enjoy for a few years and determine what we want (if anything) after that.

I haven't been inside this unit yet... but wonder what you think of yours? Any things in particular I should look for?

Thanks!

I have a 2011 Bristol Bsy 3510. DW and I bought this 5er because it had very nice beauflor with the wood look thru out most of the coach. Even the steps and bedroom are beauflor. I did see a survey and SunnyBrook rated very high in customer satisfaction.

After two years I have had no issues. Everything works as it should.

But on the negative side it only has a 10" I beam frame and 6,000 lb. axles. I hope my DW and I can full-time in this unit until we figure out what we want in our next rig. Our Bristol Bay has most of the bells and whistles. It has LCI 6pt. leveling, stacked washer dryer, 2AC's, Fireplace, 4 slides, power awning, partial paint, mor-ryde pin box, mor-ryde suspension etc.

I looked at 100's of 5ers since I bought this SunnyBrook and I still like it. Mostly because it has very little carpet and the floor does look nice and goes with the wood work.

Our next 5er will probably be 'a real' full-time unit. DRV, Excel, Life Style level 5er. But we will want to have most of the carpet removed.

You will find the Bristol Bay to be very well built. My wife and I love ours and wouldn't part with it for anything. It is a quality built unit I did a lot of research before buying mine. It had a four and a half star rating in
RV Comparison Guides.

Thanks for the input Jack. I started a new thread and found out that the combo I am looking is probably near or over the GCVW rating of the truck.

So now I have to consider buying just the 5er and a different vehicle... or both vehicles and then selling the truck...

Not sure which direction I want to go at this point.

Hi Jack ! I'm a long time member of this iRV2 forum, but absent for a long period, due to health problems. The last fifthwheel we bought is -as yours - also a Sunny Brook Bristol Bay 2011, model 3510RE. This is our third fifthwheel, and the longest (37') so far (! ...), with 4 slides-out. Unfortunately, we had to winterize it this weekend because, here in Eastern Canada, we have a "wonderful time period" called winter, that last for "almost" 6 months ! ...

We just purchased a 2008 35 ft. Sunny Brook Mobile Scout from previous owners. They kept it in immaculate condition. Still has plastic on some of the windows! This is our first time taking it out and are really enjoying all the features and roominess that we outgrew in our 26 ft. bumper pull that we enjoyed for 17 years!! We're calling this our "retirement rig"!

Hi Carmen !
This is also exactly our planification for the future : our "retirement rig" ! ...
And the way it is constructed (compared to previous models we owned), I have no doubt it will last up till that dream time ! Enjoy !

Has anyone ever had trouble with slide outs on SB Mobile Scout?

We are taking our SB Bristol Bay in to a dealer to have the small kitchen slide adjusted. One side is off by 3/4" to 1" as if it jumped a gear tooth ot two.
