Hi Max,

Maybe you have already considered this, but if you don't end up with very many "Summit SS" owners to converse with, you might consider broadening your net to include owners of the other similar (by which I mean the models that had a slide) Chinooks. I don't know all the details, but I *think* the Destin, Cascade, and Glacier had slides too (?) Also, usually there are two models in the same sub-family -- one fancier and one more basic. For example, Concourse/Premier in the non-slide ones. So the Summit must have a sister - probably one of the other names I mentioned.

Many "modern" Chinooks are on the Ford chassis, but some are on a Chevy. That would be an obvious category (not sure which you have).

And then some things are common to just about all Chinooks from a similar era, but that would depend on what thing(s) were under consideration. Obviously Concourse owners couldn't speak to slides, and Destiny owners wouldn't know about rear-door considerations.

At any rate, probably most of us love to talk about our Chinooks :)

Blue, the Summit stands alone at the err... summit of Chinooks :D

The siblings go like this, in length & base price order:

21' Eagle, Premier, Concourse, Sport (2wd Baja), Baja
24' Maverick (externally looks kind of like a side door Cascade)
24' Cascade, Destiny
25' Glacier (one slide)
27' Summit (two slides)

(To me, the Maverick is different enough from the Cascade/Destiny to have its own slot. Besides its unique side door, floor plans, and rear full width dry bath with separate shower, the Maverick was later made on a Ford chassis, while the Cascade/Destiny were all Chevy based. It truly was a maverick Chinook model.)

Aha! I have seen that biggun in photos, but forgot the details of the names, etc. Also didn't realize that there was only one feature level in that model (so no twin-but-plainer sisters). Thanks for listing them all.

Although still likely that all the "slide" Chinook owners (especially if same brand chassis) would have a fair bit in common.

But of course not to fault Max for wanting to find a gang of Summiteers :)

You brought up a good point, that it depends on what the topic category is.

For engine and other cutaway chassis questions, you basically want someone with the same truck brand.

For questions about slides, either a Glacier or Summit owner.

For levelers, multiple models. For generators and solar, almost anyone.

For batteries and associated devices, it depends on year range more than model. Same for LP gas controls.

We almost need a guide chart of features vs models / years!
