Gulf Stream

Hey all, I found a used class c Gulf Stream and heard they went out of business. Does anyone support these now or should I avoid buying? Should I ask for a price reduction for this reason. Thanks. It's a 2006 ultra ltd. 29 ft

A lot of manufacturers disappeared , over the years, the fact that Gulf Steam is gone could already be priced in.
Major systems manufacturers are probably still around; fridge, furnace, water heater and other components , should still have parts available.
Access to things , like , wiring diagrams, is probably the biggest issue.
No mention if chassis is Ford or GM, all parts for those are still available.
If the floor plan works for you , and the overall condition of the unit is good, I would not be afraid of it.

Had a 2001 Gulf Stream Conquest Classic for 9 years. No problems with the coach and minor with the chassis. Wish I had it back everyday. By the way, Gulf Stream is not out of business - they just stopped making motor homes. I suspect that they would offer suggestions on coach issues if you have them.Travel Trailers, Fifth Wheels, Light Weight, Toy Haulers | Gulf Stream RV

I'm not aware of gulf stream providing any wiring diagrams. in fact, their operating manual appears to be generic.
all the parts they used are standard and easy enough to find/replace, though don't expect upholstery items to be available.
just make sure everything works because fixing small problems soon becomes a big money pit.
