I can't say about that year or model, but I do know, Gulfstream had a poor reputation way back. If it were me, I think I'd look for one of the "better" manufacturers in the earlier years. Tiffin Allergo Bay, Fleetwood Bounder, Pace Arrow, Wiinnebago come to mind.

2,500 - 5,000 for a MH???? Does "you get what you pay for"? Or "Pay me now of pay me later"? Plus - almost 30 years old?? That would scare me to death... Did you ever see the movie "The Money Pit"?? Be careful that a "good deal" doesn't cost you more than you actually paid for the coach....

i bought a 32 ft fleetwood terra in 2003 a 2004 model and love it. we soon will be selling it and moving full-time into hopefully a beaver marquis about a 2002-2004 model. You have to expect some repairs, your driving a home down the road. Lots of flexing and vibrations. We have replaced parts on the autopark brakes a couple plumbing issues, and an inverter replacement. And of course tires. You really have to maintain these units more than a house due to the vibrations of road driving. We also replaced the awning and the slideout topper last year and the new one already has some bubbles in the fabric. Not happy with that. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about the Beaver coaches. Anything that I need to look for when buying one?
