Okay, I'm new here and inexperienced about RV's and this forum (not real sure how to conduct a meaningful search ).

My wife and I are trying to determine what sort of RV we should get. Both of us seem to like the BT Cruiser - the 27 footer. What I'm wondering is, does Gulfstream make these with a diesel? When poking around the web, I found one advertised as a diesel, but when I look at the manufacturer's website there is no reference to such a model . . . anyone know the answer? Thanks in advance for your help.

Interesting choice.!
The 6.0 Turbo Diesel is an option on a few of the BT Cruiser including the 28'er. That one appears to be built on the F450 platform as versus a couple of the smaller BT's which are on the F350 platform. Both platforms are excellent for a rig this size.
I find that 5250 and 5270 model to be quite attractive, partly because of the platform, the layout, and partly because of that engine option.
With a Class C rig in the 27' range, you are going to have ease of driving in traffic and a lot of options available to you as far as boondocking or county/state parks which often have smaller sites. This can be problematic somtimes for the 40' 5er being towed by a extended bed dually. Sometime however, in your process of determination, sit in a rig similar to the one you are eyeballing and also then sit in a 30' 5th wheel. Sit in it for an hour. (If the saleman at the RV lot bugs you, point to the door and ask him to get out. ) You guys are going to be spending a fair amount of time 'seeing the USA', make sure you get the rig that you will feel comforatable driving AND living in.

And just to make sure you have a WHOLE LOT on your plate ( ) are you thinking generator yet?? and if so how is that conversation going??
Mike
