Default Hello to All

Hello to All
I have been viewing this site for some time now. It is a great site with lots of good info. We were members of the Yellowstone National travelers since 1988. In 1991 Gulf Stream bought out Yellowstone and Adopted our club into the Gulf Stream family. We also are members of Good Sam, FCRV, and FMCA, and are active in local chapters. We still work, however we camp most weekends and on vacations. We are in our mid 40s and are most often referred to as the kids. I bought my first RV at age 22. Now on #7: 5 travel trailers and 2 motor homes. Three of them were Gulf Streams, 2 of them Yellowstone prior to Gulf Stream, and 2 some other brand, 5 were used 2 were new. We love our GS motor home. We also love attending Gulf Streams Back Home Rally. We still have 10 years to work, then plan to retire as full time RVers.
Thanks for your contributions to this website. We appreciate all of the info we get here.

Welcome to the Gulf Stream Owners RV Forum!

We are glad you decided to join in our forum. We look forward to your input with you vast knowledge of your RV experience and hope you will share that with all of us.

I enjoyed reading about the information you provided about the Yellowstone and Gulf Stream's purchase of the company since our coach carries the Yellowstone name as a model made by Gulf Stream.

Have you heard about the KEOHWEVA chapter of Gulf Stream owners.
Our members are from Kentucky, Ohio & West Virginia. We have 4 rallies a year, one being the BHII rally in June.

Hi Maggie

Yes I have heard of the KyOhWeVa chapter of Gulfstreamers. I was the president the first two years of that club. That club is into it's fourth year now. We are Kevin & Cindy. Who are you?

We are members of three chapters in other clubs. The KyOhWeVa chapter of Gulfstreamers Is like our family now.

Hi Kevin,

I didn't recognize the coach in your signature. When did you get that one?

I have talked to you several times at the Back Home Rally's in the past years. This is Ronnie & Jeannie Woods.

If we ever need someone to handle the parking duties, we know who the experts are.

Good to have you here and hope you tell others in your chapter about the forum.

Ron

Hi Ronnie & Jeannie
I thought GStream40 was you, Ron, but was not sure. Thanks for identifing. Yes, we have talked often at the Back Home Rally.

We have looked for a used mid-entry DP for over two years. I had given up on it and almost bought a front door unit at the Back Home Rally last summer. We made an offer on one then excepted the dealer's counter offer. Then the salesman added $10,000 to it and told me he was not authorized to make that deal. After that, I was not talking with him, I will not fall for that. Then after the Rally we found the mid-entry you see in the signature. Found it online at a dealer in Michigan 500 miles from home. It was a consignment unit. We bought it and the dealer bought our Sun Clipper. I could not believe the dealer gave us low retail for it after negotiating the Scenic Cruiser to below low retail.

We are no experts at parking, but we try. Can't please everyone, right.

Yes, I will talk up this site with our members. It sounds like a previous post (Maggie) is a KyOhWeVa member. Not sure who it is.

Have Fun

Kevin,

You are not the only person that I heard about where the dealer that was at the rally actually raised the price of the coach at after the offers were excepted. Shame on them!!! Makes one wonder if they do that during the deal, what are they going to do after!
Glad you walked away from it, that is what all should do!

We have one couple that purchased/ordered a new coach at the rally that are in our Ohio Cardinals and they said they would never purchase another from that dealer. They didn't go into details, but they are not happy with that dealer for some reason.

For you it sounds like it worked out for the best because you were able to get a great deal on a great coach. I will expect to see it at the next Back Home Rally.

I don't know who Maggie is either, but I am sure she will identify herself.
Maybe if she would put her RV description in her signature you would know who she is, Hear that Maggie?

Ron
