Maybe start a picture post in Topic, maybe people will want to see others units.

I attached pic of the 04 Cruiser and the upgrades I performed to keep it fresh and new. I have cabinet and flooring skills and am always doing something to the BT. Building a garage for her really helps keep it new and with 25k miles shes got many years left in her.

OK! Here is a picture of our Gulf Stream Scenic Cruiser 2002

Not sure why it says unregister version across the picture, but that is our coach anyways. Picture taken up in the 1000trails preserve at Idyllwild, Calif.

Just picked this up about 1 month ago. 2006 but only had 17,000 miles on it and he no longer wanted it, so got it at a reasonable price.
Moved up from a 2016 Salem Cruise Lite Travel Trailer. Nice jump. Runs like new.

Nice, I bet you get pretty decent diesel fuel mileage. Hows the ride?

We bought this unit about 6 months ago. Had some minor issues mainly from neglect. Only has 8500 miles on it. New tires, engine and generator (7kw) serviced. Workhorse with 8.1L gas, Allison 5 speed. Runs and handles great.

Maybe this post will revive this forum.

That is real nice, a home away from home. The kitchen cabinets look like high end quality. I wonder what happened to the original engine as they should last a long time? Do you get close to 10 mpg? I know those Ford V10's get atrocious mileage. I used to work at a park district with those V10 engines pulling a trailer of mowers only got 6 mpg around town.

This is the original motor. The previous owners DW developed Alzheimers soon after he bought it. He was 65 in 2005 so now he says he's just too old to travel. He just messed with stuff. I have found documentation of at least three different TV systems in the coach. It had a surround sound system that depended on the DVD player being in the cabinet. Well that's gone since he put a 32 inch flat screen with a DVD player built in in the front. I am working the bugs out of that now. It was kept under a carport like cover.

I did get all the books with it. I have read a lot of stuff but discovered nothing from Gulf Stream that serves as an Owners Manual. I am in contact with a lady named Millie at GS who has been a great help in sorting things out. I just finally figured out the last switch on the dash. It flashes the running lights so I can act like a trucker I guess.:D

They say it will get 10 mpg on a good day. I guess I haven't had a "Good Day" yet. I have been getting 7. Have a Ford Escape on a dolly too.
