As I write this I'm on my way this evening to Elkhart to Master Tech to have a list of things mostly quality control issues fixed along with the additon of a roof air to boost the basement. It seems that they discovered they has air flow problems after my coach went off the line and now they are going to modify my duct to install the booster. I'm also having Master Tech put diamond shield on the front and replacing recliner with a loveseat.

Mark,

Welcome to Gulf Stream Owners RV Forum !!

The Tour Master is a great coach. I looked at them at the last GS rally. The wife pulled me away shaking her head. If I were to buy today it would be a Tour Master without a doubt. Maybe in the future.

the tour master i am looking at has two roof airs, none in the basement. a sales guy told me that they were ordering all of their gs with an additional roof air to help the basement air cause basement air alone is not enough.

below is a link to unit i am thinking of buying..

Sweet. In order to protect you from all the headaches of new RV ownership I am willing to break it in for you, just let me take the coach for a year or two and I'll have all the bugs worked out!
