Default Scenic Cruiser owners

Am I the only Scenic Cruiser owner left? I hardly ever see any posts of Scenic Cruiser owners. I believe the last year they manufactured the Scenic Cruiser was in 2006. Then they were replaced as the top coach by Friendship and now by TourMaster. I know my coach has been a wonderful coach, but I was wondering how other Scenic Cruiser owners are doing with their coaches. Sure feel bad that they stopped the production of them or else I would have bought me another one. All I see is the little logo picture of the forum on the top left of the screen of a Scenic Cruiser like mine except that is blue and mine is like a light gold, brown and some other color. Would like to hear from other owners to see how their coach has performed for them.

I bought my Scenic Cruiser used in 2005 and have been very happy with it.

Yippie! Good to read that there are other Scenic Cruiser owners out there. You don't see too many of them. Just wonder what happened to all of them. I drive into a RV parks and people still think that it is a new design from GulfStream and are very impressed. When I tell them that it is a 2002 they are amazed that such a nice looking coach was discontinued.

Yeah, people are always surprised when I tell them mine is a 2000 model.

Default scenic cruiser

we have a 2002 Scenic Cruiser..and love it..been good.the occasional odds and ends, but I have since learned how to work my way thru things.

I made some wiring changes, put the fridge into the circuit that is activated when I used the inverter..great for on the road.....

the coach looks good too..people can't believe its an 02. I do have a question, do any of you know what the rocker switch is, on the dashboard, next to that large rectangular instrument cluster across the top? I may be stupid....well.I do have my moments.

Oh....I have learned, buy fuel in good well used truck stops that have fresh fuel, AND-keep a spare fuel filter handy!! R

The rocker switch is for your odometer. It will give it to you in kilometers or miles.

1995 Scenic Cruiser 34' DP. Bought Used in 09. Still working out previous owner caused problems. Can not blame previous owner as he has passed on (Estate Sale). So far I love it, corrected engine problem and milage went from 7 MPG to over 10.5. Am still finding poor wiring practices like wires just twisted together and tape having fallen off. Just lost the Dash Radio/CD Player when wires shorted out. Nothing I did not expect with that old of a coach.

I may be a new Scenic Cruiser owner. I will know Saturday. I found a 1994 34' DP, original owner, 24K, the thing looks brand new, always stored in a RV garage. New refer, microwave, tires.

The guy is asking $28,500. Hopefully I can close the deal.

Even though its nice its still a 16 YO coach so I'm sure I will get to know the forum well.

Default 1997 scenic cruiser

We purchased a 1997 Scenic cruiser in the summer of 2009, less than 50,000 miles for $40,000. Only took a trip of 1800 miles last fall. Tried to exit our area for winter but got snowed in. Haven't left this year yet, you know how hard it is to get away sometimes.

Anyway, this summer, we replaced tires. Only tires that fit it were Michelin so tire company ordered Bridgestone which areal 1/3" smaller. Also had to order a big foot leveler motor for one leveler. Also having trouble keeping convex mirrors in. One fell out while traveling last summer. Purchased new one at RV dealer for $60.00. Found that they are made by Ramco and ordered our own parts this year for a cost of $23.00.

Get good gas mileage of 10mph, not towing.

Took out washer/dryer combo.

Now we have a water leak, looks like around slide out. Do you know the brand of slide out in our motorhome? It is at an RV dealer for new seals on slide out and slide out adjustment.

Expected to have to put some money in it at its age but we are very satisfied. People also express to us how it doesn't look that old. Beautiful white interior. Satellite TV. Very comfortable. Engine and transmission and brakes were checked out and found to be good.

Anxious to keep up with other scenic cruiser owners.

Hello Ruth,
Glad to read that there are other Scenic Cruiser owners out there. Scenic Cruiser was in production until 2006, yet I have not seen any newer then 2002 on the road and we travel all over the country. I always wonder what happened to all the Scenic Cruisers that were produced after 2002. We just got back from a two month trip up the pacific north west. We started in southern California and traveled up into Oregon and Washington. Lots of rain up there, and very foggy. We will spend a couple of days at our residentail home and then take off again on the coach. This time I want to take my day cruiser boat out to the Colorado river and use the darn thing. I have had it on storage for a year in Las Vegas and I need to take it out. So my plans are to take it out every day for a week. Hope it is not too hot, but we can always cool off in the river.
Our Scenic Cruiser worked to perfection on our trip up north.
You mention that Michelin was the only company to manufacture tires that would fit? I have 22.5 tires on my coach and I used to have the Michelin XRV tires when I first bought it new, but after five years I switched to Toyo tires. I think the Toyo's are superior to the Michelins. The Michelins were 255/80 and the Toyo's are 265/75. They fit right into the original rims. I had the tires balanced with Equal and had the special valve stems installed because of the Equal. It is as smooth as can be.
