we just purchased a 1994 gulf stream ultra limited edition
I am worried as you are. We purchased the 1994 from someone I have known for over 15 years. Not a life time but for me it was a trusted person. Stated when he offered to sell us (meaning fiance' and I), that this was sound and in good shape. We jumped at the offer, because of how meticulous (maybe spelled wrong) this person always is.
Than low and behold. THE worries began to unfold. Not only is the outside a tad rough, meaning lower moldings pulling away, there is a crack on the drivers side upper panel above the on board generator. But upon taking out the cushions cleaning really well. I discovered mold and water under the cab over bunk area. Fiance' that same night tore all this out. Instead of enjoying, we are now repairing and thinking what did we do?
As per your question the construction provided in earlier post is exactly what we have found. We do not have any damage from the roof, our damage came in from the seam on the corners of the over cab bunk and the seam running
side to side in front of windshield. I have pics but not sure how to do any thing on here. This is all new to us too.
I worry will this make it down the road, I fear about the inevitable. Now I kick myself thinking why did we choose to do... Sorry didnt mean to babble but Im sure your going through the same thoughts. Please keep your chin up. On Saturday I am taking the motorhome into have a visual inspection at the RV place within 5 miles from home. Hoping the money spent wasnt a complete waste. We shall soon find out.
