Default Gulf Streamers Club

Is there anything to this "GulfStreams Club" anymore? The website seems kind of dated, as far as the Texas chapter, application, etc.
Regards,
Ken

Gulfstreamers international recreational vehicle club
http://streamers.gulfstreamcoach.com/ is alive and well.
Individual chapter websites are maintained by each chapter. Some are better than others. Texas Freedom Streamers does not list a website but list rally schedules.

it looks to me that the chapters are all that is left, As for me I can see no point in paying dues to gulfstreamer any more because they are doing nothing for the members. Why pay money and get nothing in return, no more back home ralleys. As for me I see them doing nothing to help the members. At the last 2 Rv shows they had no class a motor homes and the displays were thin on units. How long do they plan on hanging on.

You are entitled to your opinion, but you are wrong. GS is still holding rallys. We attended the end of summer rally in Michigan and had a wonderful time. Just because there was no back home in indiana does not mean they are doing nothing for you.

you may see by them holding one ralley is doing something I don't. Next year I for one is not going to stay with gulfstreamers along with many more. The showing they made at 2 RV shows make one wonder if they are going to be around.

It seems that Gulf Steam is focusing on towables and lightweights. Large expensive motor homes are not selling in this economy. When the economy picks up I think you'll see the Class A's come back.
The new Visa line is selling very well, as I understand the dealers have waiting lists for them.

Longview has new class A and C that have been on the lot for 2 years, no new stock in the Gulfstream line, but new class A's in Newmar? does that look like a company that is coming back or just hanging on?

I think you should buy the Newmar. Don't continue to come on here knocking Gulfstream. If you don't like them, buy something else.

you may call it knocking, it is putting out the facts, if you can't stand the facts don't read it and keep on supporting a dead club.

Jim, I believe you are out of line and misinformed. Any company that would make a line that is not selling and dealers are not ordering is a company that is headed for failure. That is what happened to Fleetwood, Monaco, Alfa and others.

Gulf Stream is doing very well in the towable and smaller motorhomes. The bigger class A's are not selling due to the current economy like they were a few years ago. Just look at the dealers that have went out of business. There are many Class A's sitting on the lots that are two and three years old that they cannot sell, NO buyers.

As far as the Gulfstreamers International, it is ran and sponsored by Gulf Stream. GS has had to cut back due to lower sells and profits. The work force is much smaller than it used to be. GS cannot afford to spent the money in the club as they did in the past, BUT the Gulfstreamers International is still alive and when the profit/manufacturing increases, the Gulfstreamers International will increase it's activity. That is only common sense and to be a negative as you are doing is not the thing to do as an Gulf Stream owner that has invested in the company with your past purchase. It hurts everyone.

You have to remember that many things that the club does is also sponsored/supported by the suppliers to Gulf Stream. They are also hurting during this slow period of sells and manufacturing.

All one has to do is look at the campgrounds/RV parks here in Florida. The one that were are in is only about 60% full. Up until about two years ago, it was always near 100%. So that means that either there are a lot less Snowbirds or a lot less RVer's spenting the winters in warmer climates. You need to look at the whole picture, bad economy, lower sells, less $$$$$ to spent for a RV club.
