Opinions on these trailers...

Folks, does anyone own (or owned in past) the following trailers: CM, Sundowner, Hawk? Any good or bad experience?

Also what would be the right price on 1999 Sundowner 2-horse slant with dressing room (all alum)?

Also what about steel frame/alum skin combination: does it rust badly?

is the trailer a bp or gn? Looks like the bp's have been selling between $6 and $8 and the gn I found had living quarters and it was just reduced to $12500

You can call Sundowner also and ask them. That is what I did when I bought my 4 Star

a friend of mine has the sundowner and she loves it.

You will see quite a bit of rust on the steel framed trailers where with the all aluminums you won't....

I have had 4-5 Sundowners and have loved each one of them. You can look underneath and poke the frame to see if it is solid. I have a 2002 now and the frame has some surface rust but nothing serious.
