In 2010, I was a proud owner of a new 2010 Gulfstream class A 38 footer, model 8367; we had our problems with that piece of junk since we put it on the road.

We always had problems with extending and retracting our extensions, it was common to us and the hydraulic leveling system was a PITA also. We had it serviced in some piss poor rv shop in Ocala.
Coming back home this spring, we had to get that RV fixed once and for all.

After some intensive inspection, Urgence Roulotte in Trois-Rivieres, QC, found out that we had a serious water infiltration from the dining area extension; the wall and the floor of that extension had to be rebuilt; infiltration was from the poor joint made by the factory, between the ceiling and outside wall of the extension.
The opposite extension also had some problems retracting... it was found out that the supporting 4 rollers installed under the floor were not installed properly and the 1/2" floor collapsed with the weight of the kitchen extension; so they had to rebuilt the floor.

The final cost was over $20,000 to fix this poor GULFSTREAM piece of **** product.

That's it, thanks for reading me.

My e-mail is normand.legrand@gmail.com if anyone or even GULFSTREAM CIE wants more details of this piece of **** product.

We have put on 3000 miles so far and it has been great. No leaks, good mileage. (9-10 Mpg), comfortable and a nice floor plan for a 24 footer.

We would recommend Gulf Stream.
nice to hear something about the newer ones, most in the thread are pretty old
thanks

Why would the Cummings in the small cubicle with no ventilation be better?

Good Day Gulfstream Owners. Itís been a process and itís finally back on the road. Iím the original proud owner of a 1999-8430 Tourmaster. Due to excess fibreglass/paint checking/crazing issues itís had new fibreglass and of course new paint. Thanku to ďAlbertoĒ and The Boys at OneExtreme in Hemet Ca. We look forward to many more years of happy travels. Click image for larger version

There is another coach, a 2007-2008 National RV Tropi-Cal, the dealer that has it has basically said if I buy the GulfStream it will be the worst thing I have ever done. Hummm...Peace D
It's because Gulfstream will only work with their dealers. Documentation, as I have learned the hard way is scarce on the web and GS will not send you anything.

That is a nice paint job Rebell99. I have a 2002 Scenic Cruiser which I bought new in April 2003 and the original paint job has held pretty good. But I have noticed that in some parts the clear coat is starting to peel off. Was wondering the name of the shop where you had yours done. I live close to Hemet and wouldn't mind repainting it again since it has been an excellent coach. I will probably keep it another few years.

Good Day Ray. I would highly recommend Alberto (951-201-0353) and his team at ONEEXTREME PAINT & DESIGN in Hemet. Even better as you like me would be able to watch the process as you live close by. Good luck and thanks for the positive comment.
