Default New Member to Gulfstream Forum

Hi, I'm a new member to the forum. Have never owned a motorhome before so I'm in uncharted waters on this one. My wife's father had passed away and had a 1999 Gulfstream Sun Voyager 8293 MXD. He left it to my wife. We are in the process of trying to sell it and with no past experience dealing with motorhomes I thought it would be a good idea to join the forum to acquire some needed knowledge. The current problem I have is the rear tires (dual) need replaced. The inside tire on passenger side is flat and the bead is broke. I have been trying to find information on the jack point for jacking up the rear were I can work on getting the tires off and replaced but can not find any information in literature that her father had on the motorhome. I believe this is categorized as a Class A motorhome. It is 31'6" length and UVW is 16500#. If anyone has any advice I sure would appreciate the input.

Welcome Welcome!! My first thought is why not keep the coach and get some good use out of it! I mentioned in another thread some pointers on the jacking and tires..
I'm kind of wondering why you would like to sell it.
If it has been maintained and is in good condition I'm sure it will sell.

We really do not do much extended stay traveling as my father-in-law and his wife had done with the motorhome. In its day it was probably great motorhome for the two of them. Visiting a family member out of state is most of our trips. We have horses so the coordination of the care for extended trips is always a concern. Even though motorhome appears to be in fair shape and does run, I am finding some problems/issues mostly related to age (1999 Gulfstream Sun Voyager) that will be challenging for me to work on with little or no knowledge of motorhomes versus someone who may be interested in buying who could work through issues that has prior motorhome experience. We want to sell it as is without having to invest a lot of money. Replacing the rear four tires and the two batteries for the Generac generator was expensive enough. Unfortunately, the area where we live does not have any RV Repair/Service Centers so getting assistance on issues will require going a distance. If I could sell it we would like to purchase either a much needed tractor for our property or replace the existing horse trailer. Thank you for the pointers on jacking and tires. I'll be posting more questions on the site as I try to work through some of the issues with the motorhome. Currently have one on Electrical forum about Coach Power/Battery Disconnect. Hopefully some individuals can give me some guidance/info.
