New to the forum and looking for opinions on this model. We really like the floorplan. Somewhat concerned about the weight of a 4 slide gas coach. Also couldn't find the weight sticker anywhere in the coach as we were curious what the carrying capacity was. Its built on a 22K Ford chassis. The coach drove nice, no rattles, very comfortable ride on some not so smooth secondary roads. Acceleration seemed ok, but the coach was not loaded, and we weren't pulling our toad.

The weight information for my 2002 Sun Voyager is posted inside the kitchen cabinets.

The Ford V10 is a powerhouse but you are right making sure the chassis isn't marginal for the weight. On mine the weight information is on the inside of the cabinet door above the sofa.
Did you look on Gulfstream web sight?
My previous motorhome was marginal on it's chassis and you could tell with the poor handling on the road and the poor braking.
