I just got an email from the equity agent who is supposedly responsible for liquidating the assets of Sunline. In the email it has actual dollar values affixed to the various intellectual properties Sunline used to own (trademarks, molds, designs, etc). I've gone over the message pretty close and it appears to be legitimate. How they got my name/email address is a mystery though.

Get this; for Sunlines entire portfolio of IP they only want $600,000. To me, that sounds REALLY cheap for products with the name cache that Sunline enjoyed. Sure wish I had the money -- I'd love to be the one who resurrected Sunline. Where's Warren Buffet when you need him...

Sunline is/was such a quality product I wouldn't hesitate to buy one now, especially at the heavily discounted prices.

This is the latest rumor from the Sunline Owners Forum:

Mon Feb 26, 2007 3:05 pm

Post subject: Returning Rumors

________________________________________
While at the dealership on Sat, I was talking with thier RV guy. (The Sunline plant is right "down the street".) He was telling me that he was talking to his old Sunline Rep last Fri. Here is the what the rep said:

They have two SERIOUS buyers for Sunline. (No one can buy until the creditors are paid off, however, forced bankruptsy ) When the company was sold in 04, only the name was sold. The plant ,land, and buildings all belong to the original owner, and was leased back.

One buyer wants the name only, he is going to move the operation to Ill. The current owners do not want that to happen.

The other buyer wants the name, land, plant, etc... Apparently, they are trying to work something out and take care of the workers who have made the company what it is today. This is the option the company wants to happen.
Apparently, the employees have already been approached about getting thier old jobs back. The Sunline Rep has been approaced by this possible buyer last week.

Just thought I would pass this on. Please remember, this info came second, third, maybe even forth hand. IT IS A RUMOR ONLY!!!! I guess we can only wait and see!

I thought the email I got might have been bogus, but it appears to be legit after all...
