New BT Cruiser with Partial Paint Graphics

New Exterior Graphics for BT Cruiser

Here’s a first look at the stunning new exterior graphics now available on any new BT Cruiser. As you can see, it’s an artful combination of gel-coat fiberglass and broad areas of custom paint. In addition to being drop-dead gorgeous, it’s far more economical than full custom-paint graphics.

For many, it’s the best of both worlds: Head-turning, wow-inspiring looks, AND significant savings! It’s another GREAT reason BT Cruiser should top your list if you’re shopping for a couples-focused, road-friendly, down-sized, luxury motor home. (Get the whole story on the BT Cruiser here!)

BT Cruiser beauty is more than skin deep!

Underneath the new exterior graphics for the BT Cruiser are a host of things that make it unique, including:

  • The Gulf Stream Coach-exclusive Cradle of Strength®, a network of steel chassis reinforcements and enhancements.
  • Azdel, the super-light structural wall substrate that can’t absorb water, won’t mildew, and offers superior temperature and noise insulation.
  • A 4 kW generator to provide electrical service no matter where you stop or set-up camp.
  • Frame-mounted seat belts at every seating position, to greatly enhance passenger safety.
  • 14 more luxury and convenience items we include on every BT Cruiser, that other companies consider extra-cost add-ons.

BT Cruiser – Still “the sports car of motor homes”

It’s important to mention the other aspect of the BT Cruiser that makes it a favorite among dedicated motor home travelers, too. It’s the way the BT Cruiser handles on the road. From interstates, to city streets, to parking lots, the BT Cruiser has proven it’s “the sports car of motor homes.”

And just in case you were wondering…

YES, we still offer our bold-and-beautiful full-body paint graphics and our stylishly subtle standard tape graphics. The choice is yours!

Vintage Cruiser Releases Two New Bunkhouse Floor Plans


Roomy Front Dinette with great picture window views, at the front of the new 19BFD

In response to numerous requests from Vintage Cruiser fans and dealers, Gulf Stream Coach just announced the release of two new  Bunkhouse Floor Plans – The 19BFD and the 23BHS.  While sharing many of the specifications of other Vintage Cruiser 19- and 23- ft models. the two new arrivals both include upper and lower 28″ x 74″ bunks for visitors, guests, children, grandchildren, or pets.



The 19BFD Murphy Bed, folded down over the dinette

In addition to the bunks, both floor plans also take advantage of one of the most versatile approaches to combining living space with sleeping accommodations – A Murphy Bed!  In the 19BFD, a roomy dinette, flanked with picture windows, fills the front of the trailer.  With a few simple adjustments, when it’s time to turn in, a Murphy Bed folds open across the dinette, providing a flat, comfy 60″ x 74″ bed that.  It’s not a collection of dinette cushions – it’s a real bed!

In the 23BHS, the dinette is in a slide-out, so the Murphy Bed opens across the front sofa, providing a flatter, firmer, more comfortable sleeping surface than any sofa-bed.


The unique rear cargo hold on the new Vintage Cruiser 19BFD

The 19BFD has another trick ‘up its sleeve,’ too:  Take a look at the image on the left, or at this early picture gallery of the new 19-footer.  Notice the big “Bike Door” in the rear wall of the trailer.  Open it and you’ll see that the bottom bunk is hinged to fold up out of the way, making room for all kinds of camping cargo.  Even bikes will fit inside.  Notice too that the space under the bunk is open through to the main living area, making it possible to carry really long cargo, including fishing gear, skis, paddleboards, and even some kayaks.  It’s ingenious!

Both new Bunkhouse floor plans are available with the now-famous teal-and-cream, crimson-and-cream, and “Woodie” Estate Wagon decors, and both feature the rigid, rock-solid, feather-light laminated walls and one-piece roof that made Vintage Cruiser the market leader.

It’s exciting to see that the Vintage Cruiser idea people are still looking for more and better ways to fulfill the needs and wants of camping families.  Make sure you get a close look at all six Vintage Cruiser floor plans when you start shopping.  One is sure to be just right for you.

New Conquest Class C 6238 Photo Gallery Now Online

The photographer took his camera inside one of the most popular floor plans in the Gulf Stream Coach lineup, the Conquest Class C 6238, and the results are posted online here.Conquest Class C 6238 Main Living Space, looking front to rear

The 6238 provides motor home customers with every comfort of home, in a well-planned and skillfully built floor plan.  The 6238 includes a large 60″ x 74″ bed, a full dry bath, a large main living area with a convertible dinette in the slide-out, and a full stainless steel kitchen.


The 6238 Cradle Of Strength Foundation

We build the 6238 on the rugged, efficient, powerful Ford E350 platform, with the Ford 6.7L V10 engine.  But Gulf Stream Coach takes over just one inch above theGulf Stream Coach "Cradle Of Strength®" steel rails of the Ford chassis, where we add our exclusive “Cradle Of Strength®”.  The Cradle Of Strength® (see our previous post) uses box-style steel trusses, steel stringers, welded braces, metal cargo boxes, and a diamond plate subfloor to help keep your traveling family safe and comfortable.

Laminated Fiberglass Walls

The 6238 is enclosed by lightweight yet rigid laminated fiberglass walls that use welded tubular aluminum, rigid polyfoam insulation, and synthetic Azdel subtrates.  We vacuum-bond these layers with advanced adhesives in our own lamination plant, using a proprietary process we’ve developed over the past 30 years.

We build the roof with a welded aluminum truss system and seamless synthetic rubber to shed water and resist leaks.

Stylish Interior Decor, Extensive Standard Features

The decor and furnishings inside the Conquest Class C 6238 reflect the casual yet sophisticated look popular in vacation homes, with extensive use of our Roanoke Light Cherry woodwork and coordinating fabrics, leather-touch vinyl, and easy-care wood-grain flooring.  Electronics include hookups for an optional HDTV/DVD player, a standard rear-mount backup camera and in-dash Conquest Class C 6238 Stainless Steel Kitchencolor monitor, USB charging ports, and cool, efficient LED lighting inside and out.

Drawers, cabinets, closets, and other storage areas are handy at every turn.  Floor-ducted heating and overhead ducted air conditioning keep your family comfortable, and a standard 4-kilowatt generator keeps everything powered up.

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.

front-to-rear stringers

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.


TUFF TRUSSES on top of rail


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.
