Gulfstream stops making motorhomes.

Am I the last to know again. I just read where Gulfstream quit making motorhomes. They are staying in the trailer business but will cease making motorhomes.

go to www. gulfstreamcoach.com instead of gulfstreamtrailers.com. The coach web site is still up and running -- which leads me to believe that they are still in the business of manufacturing motorhomes.

That is where I got my information. They have a scroll up that says thanks for being loyal customers. We have ceased production on all motorized RV's.

I contacted them earlier this month to setup a tour of the factory as I was going to be in the area. I was told they are not producing right now so they are not doing tours. After all of the money we have paid and this is the outcome, such a shame.

To Gulf Stream Coach Motorhome Owners . . .

Our sincere thanks for your support of Gulf Stream Motorhomes.
We appreciate your business; it was an honor serving you.
Currently Gulf Stream is not producing motorized RVís, but we encourage
you to consider our complete line of Gulf Stream Coach Travel Trailers and Fifth Wheels.

Click here to download the latest edition of the
Gulf Stream Motorhome Owner's Manual (PDF format)

Click here if you need to contact Gulf Stream Coach regarding
service, parts or Dealer assistance for your Gulf Stream Motorhome.
Be sure to include your contact information, and where possible, the
serial number, model and year of your unit.

It is a shame that they have decided to get out of the coach business. Hopefully our other manufacturers don't fall victim to this miserable economy. Thank you all you government folks who have put us in this fiscal mess.

Milk.. 3.89 gallon, diesel 4.07 gallon. When will it end..

Another one bites the dust, another one bites the dust, another one another one..... Soon there will be few remaining as they consolidate under banners such as Thor, Forest River, Navistar. Competition is crushed and swallowed up. Choice will decrease and price will go up. Another American breed industry becomes fodder for the museums.

When I was researching this, I found several 2012 Gulfstream motorhomes for sale on the web.
