Gulf Stream like most all other manufacturers have had some good years and not so good years. You might want to check out the "Rate your Gulf Stream" thread at the top of this forum. Our 2000 Scenic Cruiser has been great to us and we lived and traveled across the US for almost 8 years in it. I still have it and use it some but not nearly as much as I would like. Good luck and keep us posted.
