Property Description

Our Sun-Lite was put to the test under the scrutiny of a 40-year RV engineer.

In the mid 1970s, Bill Hostetler as the AVP of Coachmen, developed the Cadet line of economically priced travel trailers which turned into the company’s largest selling travel trailer after the oil embargo drove gas prices sky high. From ’78 to ’93 Hostetler oversaw all product design activities for the 14 RV divisions at Skyline Corporation, reporting directly to the company’s dynamic leader, Art Decio.

He then served as Damon Corporation’s VP of Engineering over towables, motorized and R&D. Before retiring, he returned back to Skyline, where he was responsible for RV design, overseeing all activities related to design, development and safety, including production prints and specifications, and problem solving.

In the fall of 2016, Bill and his wife, Peggy, tested a Sun-Lite Travel Trailer. Traveling from Mishawaka, Ind. to Casper, Wyo., Bryce Canyon, Utah, and Grand Junction, Colo., Hostetler reviewed this RV.

Bill and Peggy are most happy with the biggest differences between the Sun-Lite  and other similar models such as Puma, Keystone RV Premier Ultra Lite, Gulf Breeze Ultra Lite or the Jayco Hummingbird: a 54-inch dinette slide out which makes room for 4 people at the table with extra room, and the large fridge which provides enough room to keep food for four!
