Gulf Stream Coach – Multiple Winner of the Quality Circle Award

The Quality Circle Award – A measure of distinction.

All RVs are not created equal – Thank goodness for that!  – The variations give owners a huge range of floor plans, features, specifications, and prices.

One measure of distinction at Gulf Stream Coach should be particularly important to RV shoppers.   It’s something called the Quality Circle Award from the RV Dealers Association, and here’s why it means so much:

RVDA uses a secret ballot to choose Quality Circle Award winners.

The Quality Circle Award is given to RV Manufacturers based on votes by RV dealers across the US and Canada.  It’s like the “Academy Award” of the RV industry!  The award is earned by a very small fraction of the RVs on the market, based on survey results from RV Dealers measuring product quality, warranty and service support, and overall Dealer satisfaction.

It should come as no surprise that Gulf Stream Coach is a multiple-award, multiple-year winner, with many of its popular brands heralded for quality, support, and satisfaction.  After all, being responsive and responsible to our dealers and retail customers is the foundation of our way of doing business.  Because we’re family-owned and family-focused, we don’t spend time or money satisfying the demands of a corporate board of directors or stockholders.  We spend time and money pleasing YOU.

Our award-winning focus on families has a 30-year heritage.

Our family focus has proven itself in the business world with over 30 years of success fulfilling the needs of hundreds of valuable dealers, and making dreams come true for hundreds of thousands of camping families – And we have the Quality Circle Awards to prove it!

Gulf Stream Coach "Cradle Of Strength®"

Only Gulf Stream Coach Motor Homes Have The “Cradle Of Strength®”

We’ve spent over thirty years building motor homes that give you the same kind of comfort, convenience, and safety you enjoy in your own home.  So far we’ve put over 60,000 motor homes on the road – and, as you can imagine – we’re really good at it!

Imagine this too:  Imagine what it’s like to build a home that has to travel 70 miles per hour on an Interstate Highway, and wind its way along narrow, bumpy country roads.  Then imagine a home that has to go up and down hills, brave the rain, snow, and searing summer sun, all while carrying the people you love most from one place to another.

Because you put your family in our hands, we put a “Cradle Of Strength®” under your motor home.

box style TUFF TRUSSESUnique in the RV industry, the Gulf Stream Coach “Cradle Of Strength®” is the carefully engineered foundation of steel we add to the motor home chassis.

Our Cradle Of Strength® uses large box-style TUFF TRUSSES rated at 6,000 lbs. each.  That puts more welded steel across the chassis rail than the triangle trusses other manufacturers use.

We further stiffen and strengthen the trusses with front-to-rear steel stringers.

We build our outside storage compartments with galvanized steel, not plastic, then wrap the insides with felt to protect your cargo.

We use extra welds and brackets to mount our TUFF TRUSSES on top of the main frame rail so they can’t shift down.



Galvanized steel subfloorFinally, we cover the drivetrain and service lines with a 26-gauge galvanized steel sub-floor.

Our Cradle Of Strength is the perfect foundation for our laminated floor and walls, providing incredible stiffness, resilience, and durability.  That strength translates into more dependable road manners, easier handling, and an overall safer, less-stressful driving experience.

We give you a “Cradle Of Strength®” –  and no one else does.

If you want a “Cradle Of Strength®” as the foundation of your family’s next RV, there’s only one way to get it:  Choose a Gulf Stream Coach motor home.  Whether you prefer the family-favorite Conquest Class C, or “The sports car of motor homes” BT Cruiser, you can rest assured:  There’s a “Cradle Of Strength®” supporting and protecting you everywhere you go.
