High Plains sunset, Sand Lake State Park, Utah

This is one of the reasons we go camping

Sunset at Sand Hollow State Park, Utah

(March 1, 2017) This stunning view of the sun setting behind a ridge in the high plains of Utah is a good reminder of what we can see, where we can go, and what we can do when we go camping.

The photo, sent in by Gulf Stream Coach owner Ken Hughes, shows his 2012 VISA (the predecessor of our current Vista Cruiser and Vintage Cruiser travel trailers) proving that some of the most beautiful things in this world can be staged for our own private enjoyment when we leave the day-to-day world behind and go camping.

Whether you’re looking for the peace and solitude of a high plains sunset, the informal camaraderie of newfound friends at a campground, or an action-filled family vacation where the iPads and smart phones are left idle for hours at a time, Gulf Stream Coach has the travel trailer, motor home, fifth wheel, or toy hauler that’s just right for you.

Our broad range of prices, styles, sizes, and forms of Recreational Vehicles is virtually unmatched in the industry.  So is our commitment to people who love to camp.

Gulf Stream Coach Releases GEO Travel Trailer at Louisville Show

New GEO Interior from Gulf Stream Coach(December, 2016)  GEO, the newest travel trailer brand from leading independent producer Gulf Stream Coach of Nappanee, Indiana, will be prominently featured at the upcoming RVIA Show in Louisville.  Called “an exciting new blend of leading-edge design and extraordinary value,” the GEO exterior features laminated construction and a molded fiberglass cap with LED accent lights.  Inside, the inspiration comes from the latest interior design ideas, with clean, contemporary lines and an upscale color palette.

“We want GEO to reflect the style and innovation seen in today’s homes and hotels, specifically to attract non-traditional customers and first-time buyers,” said Gulf Stream Lightweight Division National Sales Manager Tim Dennig.  “GEO is the kind of travel trailer that new campers want – Solidly built, well-equipped, stylishly designed, and easy to tow.”

GEO includes a package of popular features and options to give owners design and technology hot buttons while keeping prices low.  Included are luxuries like solid-surface counters with an ‘infinity’ edge, a stainless steel kitchen faucet with pull-out sprayer, power awning with LED atmosphere lighting, USB charging ports, and a Blue Tooth-enabled home theater system.  A tempered glass range cover is standard, as are cool, efficient LED lights, and handcrafted cabinets with a subtle Mountain Ash finish.  A lighter wood grain flooring contributes to the overall color scheme.

Behind the great styling are resilient vacuum-bonded walls, floor, and slide-outs, using a welded aluminum skeleton filled with rigid poly foam insulation.  A heated, enclosed undercarriage protects tanks and occupants in cooler weather.

“GEO gives RV shoppers four innovative floor plans from 23 to 34 feet in length, all featuring the combination of luxury, convenience, and high perceived value they need to win the confidence and meet the high expectations of people new to the RV life,” Dennig said.  “Buyers can also add a wide range of options to further upgrade their campsite lifestyle.”

To see the new GEO and get more information, people can visit the Gulf Stream Coach Web site or contact their local Gulf Stream Coach dealer.

Crowds Seek Out Gulf Stream Coach At Winter RV Shows

(February 26, 2017)  The crowds at the 2017 winter RV shows have been setting records across the US and Canada, jamming aisles, keeping representatives busy, and finding great values.  Among the stand-out stars at scores of shows are the great-looking travel trailers and motor homes from Gulf Stream Coach.  Here are some notes collected from Gulf Stream factory representatives who have been on hand for all the RV show excitement.

“We have just what first-time buyers are looking for…”Ameri-Lite 257RB at February 2017 RV Show

From Randy B:  “We’re seeing LOTS of first-time buyers at the RV shows this year, and that’s great!  More and more families are including RV’ing as one of their recreational preferences.  We’re particularly suited to help those “newbies,” with our extraordinary Amer-Lite line, which gives familes all the camping basics they need in a high-quality, lightweight, low-priced package.”

“The Vintage Cruiser – Wildly popular at RV Shows!…”

Vintage Cruiser "Estate Wagon" at recent RV Show, February 2017

From Tim D:  “I continue to be surprised and encouraged by the wild popularity of our Vintage Cruiser line whenever we feature it at an RV Show.  With the Vintage Cruiser we’ve been careful to preserve the fun of the 50’s retro vibe while building a state-of-the-art travel trailer with all the latest conveniences.  The new wood-paneled ‘Estate Wagon’ is a big attention-getter, causing excitement everywhere it goes.”

“Our experience is showing…”

From Bob F:  “People at RV Shows tell me how much they love the way Gulf Stream Coach motor homes look – But careful RV show shoppers know the beauty of our BT Cruiser and Conquest Class C motor homes is more than ‘skin-deep.’  When they look closely, they’ll find scores of things we’ve done to make our motor homes stronger, safer, more durable, and all-round better than anything else in their class.  When people are choosing something as important as a motor home, they deserve to hear all the things we’ve learned and all the ways we’ve perfected the art and science of building motor homes.  That’s why they come to the RV shows, and it’s why I do too.”

The Gulf Breeze/StreamLite 30RKP “Sun Deck” Travel Trailer featured at the recent National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky has been named “Best of Show” by the editors and staff of RV Pro, a leading industry publication. A popular focal point for RV Dealers and other show attendees, the 30RKP attracted a constant stream of admirers to the Gulf Stream display, who appreciated the innovative engineering that enabled the 6’ x 10’ Sun Deck to provide ideal outdoor space for owners and guests, without sacrificing comfort, luxury and convenience inside the unit.

The sun deck features a 2,500 lb. capacity, a laminated floor with non-skid surface, a safety railing, an in-wall beverage refrigerator, and a weather-sealed media center for HDTV with a home theater sound and video system.

Structurally, the 30RKP benefits from all the advantages of light-weight vacuum-bonded laminated fiberglass walls and floor, a welded aluminum skeleton frame, and an aerodynamic fiberglass front cap.

Our New Track & Trail Fills the Need for a Value-Priced Toy Hauler

Amid the healthy crowds and busy aisles at the early-season RV shows across the U.S. and Canada, a new “star performer” is emerging, giving RV’ers and other outdoor enthusiasts something exciting and fun to look forward to when the winter weather breaks. It’s the Track & Trail line of 21′ to 34′ value priced toy haulers, and here, according to the RV customers who are buying them, are the key reasons the Track & Trail is so hot:

The Price! – With prices almost any active outdoor family can afford, Track & Trail toy haulers are the affordable dream-come-true. Most recent buyers of Track and Trail units didn’t even think they were in the toy hauler market, because of the sky-high prices they have seen on so many other brands.

Ease of Towing – With dry weights form 3,800 to 6,000 lbs., Track & Trail units can be towed behind 1/2 ton pickups and many other towing-equipped family vehicles. No need for a heavy-duty diesel stump-puller, so buyers save tens of thousands on tow vehicles, and have less stressful time on the road.

opencargoarea2emailRoom for All Kinds of Files – Many buyers know they might never roll a dirt bike up the ramp, planning instead to use the huge, rugged Track & Trail garage to move their kayaks, gas grills, water toys, lounge chairs, and other bulky gear to their favorite campground, for a summer full of family fun.

Multi-Purpose Cargo Space – It’s ideal for go-karting, flea-marketing, dog-showing, gold-prospecting, and virtually every other outdoor activity that combines outdoor gear and overnight accommodations.

Rock-Solid Design Features – An 8 ft. ramp with 3,000 lb. capacity and a full-width spring-assisted hinge; a powder-coated steel generator tray, diamond-pattern rubber garage floor, fold-up sofas, a folding portable picnic table, and all the comfort and comfort and convenience any outdoor enthusiast could want.

Canyon Trail Breaks New Ground with Front Bath Floor Plan

RV Show attendees are raving over the latest floor plan from Gulf Stream affiliate Yellowstone RV. It’s the new Canyon Trail Fifth Wheel Model 36FBQS that includes a spacious and luxuriously appointed Master Bath located forward of the Master Bedroom. As equipped and shown at recent RV events, the floor plan creates a truly private Master Suite, with a full-width cedar-lined closet, a 30” x 54” fiberglass shower with ‘rainfall’ style shower head, 6’5” of headroom, a huge vanity mirror with makeup lights, and a spacious solid-surface counter with plenty of room for his-and-hers surface-mounted glass vessel sinks with designer brushed nickel fixtures.

That’s a bath! And by moving it forward of the bedroom, there’s no space-stealing hallway next to it – Ingenious! Visitors won’t have to wander into the Master Suite either – there’s a guest bath for them just inside the entry door.

Canyon Trail never skimps on standard features or available options, and like other Advanced Profile models, the 36FBQS can be equipped with extensive light Bayridge Maple or dark Cherry stained hardwood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, 12 cu. ft. double–door refrigerator, washer/dryer hookups, plush residential style recliners and sofas, and rich, designer fabrics. The complete list of standard features is extraordinarily extensive; the options and packages add a wide selection of crowning touches that enables experienced RV’ers to get all the features they’ve always wanted.

Once you’ve reviewed the twenty-plus fifth wheel and travel trailer floor plans online, the best way to experience the luxury, quality and ingenuity of the Canyon Trail line is to explore them at a Yellowstone RV Dealer near you. The online Dealer Finder will tell you where you’ll find the Dealer near you.
