Hi from England.
I am looking to change my 1992 Ford Gulf Stream Ultra to a 1996 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager I am looking at this in a dealers in Telford it has a 5.9cummins mated to a six speed allison gear box with a single slide the dealer says that it was built to u.k. spec in America before being imported to England can anyone tell me if there are any known problem areas with these particular vehicles or anything that I should look for in particular
Just in case the deal doesent go through My present Gulf Stream has a fault on the cruise control it doesent work any ideas.

Is your coach a diesel? If it is check your vacume pump. It is the iratating sound you here under your front seat.

Thanks for the reply yes it is a diesel but there is nothing under the seats inside I believe there is a vac pump under the hood as I recently had to change the fan belts all the controls for the cruise are in the midle of the steering wheel also at the front there appeard to be like a small servo with about six pipes going to it on some sort of block it is on the drivers side near to one of the batterys
Many Thanks

Hi stuart, Is the dealer in uk Travelworld RV ,If so they are very helpfull if they are selling a new unit.Ross and Annabell give very good customer care,Their Father is not so helpfull unless you are spending $300,000 .(But perhaps thats just me always looking scruffy when they see me). IS the RV you are viewing front entry because they are prone to the front doors catching the wind and blowing open that then smashes the door glass. Your other problem,If its a C class on a ford ,check the speedo/abs switch on back axle. My old Diesel C class Allegro bay used to have a flickering speedo that then switched off the cruise.We tried everything including buying a new brain only to find it was a small censor on back axle (cost $14). I now the history of a vast vnumber of US RVs in the UK through the racing world,so do get in touch for a chat. Pete Beale (UK) BT Cruiser 3 slide Diesel
