We have a 30' Gulfstream 2005 model. Looking at theier web site, gulfstream offers several gas models in the 31' foot range.

I wondered if that might be it but the gas tank only took 40 gallons when we filled it after that and the tank capacity is 78 gallons. But thanks for the info. It may be that the sensor is out of place.

Input on Short, older RV?

Hope to become an rv'er soon. Never owned a rv AND never "posted" before. My desire is to find: bed in back, sofa & dinette, '90s or newer, low mileage, with all the rest of the stuff. Looked at early '90's Tioga Class C 24' which seemed pretty ideal for me, but didn't have sofa. Very interested in a '95 Flair Class A 27', but less sleeping space as the class has no over-cab bed and is a bit long for my driving comfort. Also one park ranger told me 24' is ideal for getting into all parks. Would welcome input, especially on the rv's above, from all you experienced rv owners. Thanks a bunch!

Well, despite our love of our Rockwood, our recent "family expansion" has us moving to something bigger (with slides)... so our Rockwood is up for sale. I personally think it's a heck of a deal. I find it hard to believe you'd find 30' very limiting, I mean, I can make three point turns on residential streets! I'd have to think anyplace limited to 24' is really tight..I mean, that wouldn't likely allow any trailers, would it?

IMHO there is no such thing as the ''perfect motor home''. I started with 28 foot midas kingston ''c class'' and I now have a 33 Pace Arrow. Each coach had its advantages and limitations. we find that the 33 foot ''a'' class Pace is perfect for us. Only two of us travel in the coach with 3 puppies (small) and we sometimes spend four to six months in the coach. We are not full times we just enjoy travel. Remember this. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE ''PERFECT COACH'' ...... find one that you can afford and one you can ''live with'' and bet your money and take your chance. On a ''used coach''.. CHECK OUT EVERYTHING.........EVERYTHING...... crawl under over around and thru the coach and look for water stains, wet spots, scratch marks on the floor and ceiling and check it out good .... It is gonna be yours .......good luck ....

this valuable advise will cost you ten cents the next time you see me .....

Thanks, Seajay. I concur... NO PERFECT COACH for me. Just like I want to be blonde AND brunette; have curly AND straight hair; and on and on. I do know 27' is my MAX and I want that rear bed and sofa. I'm told diesel pushers get better mpg, as do class c's. Can all get me up that steep hill? Time and travel will tell. Thanks for the input.

In many cases when one goes below 30/31ft. there
is no couch, alot less basement storage, less
capacity of black and grey holding tanks, possible
less fuel capacity. Also the fresh water tank may be under the rear bed instead of under the rear floor. This cuts down storage space greatly.
My experience that I had before I bought my 30/31 ft. Flair Class A.
