This is our 1988 Gulfstream Hi Rise. We bought it in 2003 after I retired early and started Full Timing. I came back to work for the last 2 years and used the extra money for some TLC on M/H. Since smog checks are no longer required, the smog slug 460 got an upgrade so that it will Go Up an Upgrade.

That Cedar Ceiling Is Off The Hook Sir! My Own Opinion here, but I would get rid of the Chrome Valve Covers, They hold too much heat and its not like you're going to remove the dog house all the time to show them off. Just My Opinion!

This one had 1987 engine, the last year for carburation. The M/H sold as an 1988. These engines didn't make much power with the factory smog package but the next generation Fuel Injected engines were Much better. I wish I'd bought an 1989 and up model but it was a low mileage, well maintained, one owner unit that my long time dealer gave me a great deal on. As for the valve covers, due to the uniqueness of the heads that I used, I had to run roller rockers and needed tall valve covers. I really wanted Tall Fabricated Aluminum valve covers but a $200-$300 a pair vs $40 the stamped chrome ones won out. It has a big Aluminum radiator with an air box leading from the grille to the radiator and a NASCAR type engine oil & transmission fluid coolers in the left & right lower nose shroud. My biggest problem isn't running Hot But running too cold forcing me to block off parts or the grill opening. I have an electric pull thru radiator cooling fan and only us it when in city traffic.

Thanks it's a hoot to drive!I own a Peterbilt 379 for my work and the Foretravel drivers seat sits higher than the Pete does. The interior quality is unbelievable almost like a fine yacht would be.I found it on Craigslist and it had been sitting for 4 years, Being a mechanic pretty much my whole life I wasn"t afraid to take on the challange. It has turned out to be a fantastic find. I named it Nelson after the deceased previous owner,It just looked like a Nelson!!LOL
