Gulfstream Independence Solarium model

We're looking at a 2008 Gulf Stream Independence 8295, it has a solarium type slide out with skylights above the C shaped table booth. We're wondering if people have had problems with these types of slides. Are there other common issues with GS? Does GS build a good coach? How do they compare with HR's?

I have always liked that model with the solarium. I've never heard of any problems. I'd be interested in hearing from present or past owners. Keep us informed.

We have a GS 2008 8327 Independence (FRED) with the slide you are asking about. It and the other two slides have been trouble free.

I think the coach we have is a good one, no experience with other GS products. The outside storage access (doors) leaves a bit to be desired.

We bought it used (18000 miles) two years ago and the only problems have been minor ones with the generator -a coolant leak and temperature sender failure.
