Hands down, the biggest over priced piece of crap!!! I bought it brand new and within the first rain it leaked. Dealership where I bought it fixed it. Then, take first shower and noticed water runs right over the edge and on the floor…and gulf stream knows it and will not fix it. I extremely warn “Beware “ of Gulf Stream products!! It will be a fight with them to do anything. I wish the owners of Gulf Stream (Shea Brothers) would acknowledge the poor manufacturing of there product and stand behind it. But why should they their making money on a inferior product.

Heat only thermostat would not make contact from day one. Rv tech did not resolve. After a lot of online research I figured out how to pop the cover off and tweak the spring contacts. Toilet rocket. Rv tech worked on it causing a leak from the black tank to the ground. $1400 for outside tech to fix. Gulfstream rep told me to take it " wherever I wished to get it fixed," then refused to pay. Cabinet doors fell off. Bathroom vent fan switch quit working. No caulking toilet floor area or anywhere on floor. Big gap between tub and toilet platform. Tiny wallboard staples coming out. Roof seam at left front corner leaked before it was a year old. Porch light causes interior lights to dim e I had to.when turned on. Very poor quality control. I only put one star on factory warranty support becaus

We have a 2011 Gulfstream Kingsport 321 tbs that we bought new. We have been campers for many years and this was the 4 trailer we have owned. It has been a lemon since the day we bought it. Everything from the entertainment center to the cabinets and doors has had problems. Now the camper is 8 years old and Gulfstream no longer makes or carries parts for it anymore. That’s really bad news for a trailer that needs constant repair. I would never purchase another Gulfstream product.

I purchased this trailer brand new, manufactured 6/30/17 As for the quality of the Gulfstream Kingsport 268BH, unless you are a skilled technician I would not purchase. Here are the issues with the trailer after one month of ownership. 1. Both front and rear doors windows leak water badly with rain or wash 2. A/c thermostat is 8 degrees off and randomly changes temp settings occasionally setting itself at 90 degrees 3. Found several big holes around conduit, electrical cord and wiring leading into unit 4. The rear most led light flickers constantly 5.The light covers above dining table were not assembled correctly making the use of tools necessary to replace bulb that burned out after 2 days of operation. 6. Light above kitchen stove burned out after 4 days and continues to burn new small automotive type bulbs out if you replace them. 7. The storage doors on the outside did not seal properly exposing air/ water gaps into unit. 8. The trim around bathroom door came off on day 2 9. Bathroom door does not shut because of large gap between door and frame with trailer on level ground 10. There is a piece of trim by the bed in front cabin that looks like it was broken during assembly so they put about 1,000 brad nails in it and it still doesn't fit right 11. Both black and grey tank levels show 1/3 full all the time even when allowed to drain fully 12. Hot water comes out of faucets cloudy due to hydrogen gas being created inside of unit 13. The fridge likes to frost and then randomly defrost on its own leaving water constantly pooling in the rear. I dont trust the non adjustable temp for meats and perishables 14. The a/c cools well but randomly goes into 3 minute cycles shutting on and off for up to 30 minutes at a time 15. The wiring attached under the slide is too short in length so when slide was fully extended for the first time it pulled tight and broke the fastener holding it up in place 16. Trim missing on bedroom cabinet, never had it in the first place. No idea. 17. Both the kitchen and bathroom faucets broke after 2 weeks of use 18. The entire bathroom had to be re caulked. It wasn't even done in the first place? Seriously... water and particle board does not mix well. How can they sell it like that? 19. Had to replace the toilet after 3 weeks due to cheap construction and a bowl that would not hold water. 20. The connections on electrical trailer brakes were not made properly and found a disconnected wire to left rear wheel that probably happened during its first and only 200 mile journey 21. Had to caulk and seal around stove/ kitchen since it was not done at factory 22. The dining table is the most wobbly thing I have ever had the pleasure of eating at. 23. The dining cushions are not even that providing no support for me bum and they slide forward gradually as you sit. 24. I discarded the mattress. Didnt even want to attempt to sleep on it. 25. The shower curtains were meant for a 72" shower 26. The tub/shower works for people 5'6" or less... luckily I am 5'6". 27. If you press pause on your device music, the bluetooth stereo mode picks up am radio signals and plays a random radio station quietly. 28. Both roof vents have not opened fully since day one, stripped the gear on bathroom vent trying to open first time and had to dissassemble to close. 29. City water connection broke the first time a hose was attached I am sure I am forgetting a few things. I am ok with this trailer even with all of the flaws as I work on things for a living. Buying this crappy new trailer made more sense than buying a few year old crappy trailer and still having to work on it for not a whole lot less than I paid for this one. If you are not comfortable with regular repairs then spend more $$$ and buy one better quality. You get what you pay for.
