Wonderful woodwork and bright colorful details - I love what this trailer looks like and its floorplan really works for us. BUT, this trailer is cheaply and poorly manufactured. Some of the defects were minor and were easily fixed - for example, Gulf Stream failed to install a blackwater tank flush valve, to connect the radio to the antenna, etc. Annoying but no big deal. But, it didn't stop with the small stuff . Gulf Stream didn't seal the rear brake light at the roofline and the water that poured in blew 4 of the 5 window seals in the trailer. When it rained it was like Niagara Falls inside the trailer. Took over 8 months to get new windows in stock and replaced. There were what appeared to be nails popping up through the flooring but were in fact just pieces of scrap metal that were not swept up and they installed the flooring right overtop. Then when we were travelling, the freezer door hinge snapped right off and the freezer door was on the floor. Turns out that when the freezer door was installed, a corner plastic piece that holds the door trim and the handle had snapped in half and instead of taking the door off and replacing the piece, they just glued it in place. That is a lot of weight and stress on a glued bit that eventually failed and the cost for replacement of the freezer parts was shockingly high. We have less than 20,000 km on this trailer and the last time we took it out we were on the highway and a leaf spring failed (severed completely in half). Almost died. Repair shop said that the leaf springs that the trailer was initially equipped with were barely sufficient for the dry weight of the trailer and a partially filled fresh water tank - no other weight. We thought we must have a lemon trailer but we spoke to someone with the exact same RV model and year of manufacture, and their experience was no less disturbing - they had had completely different and just as serious issues. We swapped horror stories so that we could learn from our shared experience and take some comfort from the fact that that these issues are not exclusive to just our trailers. These are cheap and cheerful trailers BUT they are really poorly manufactured and somewhat dangerous and the trailer will be in the shop more often than you will be camping with it.

We bought new a Gulfstream Vintage Cruiser RSS. The drop down menu here did not have our RV listed so I plugged in the closest I could find on that list. This RV has been junk from the day we bought it. Do not buy Gulfstream. Wiring harnesses not connected, screws pulled out of the table during hauling and table was on the floor when we opened the door. Table and everything else is made of very cheap materials. The "woody" outside decals are peeling off. Looks so bad I am embarrassed to pull the camper out on the road. Gulfstream said we have to pay them $2,000.00 for enough decals to cover just the front and one side. Then we have to pay $100 per hour to have them installed. Sitting at the table and pieces of paneling trim simply fall off onto the floor. Skylights fell apart and had to be replaced. Chrome hub caps all rusted. Lid on storage tube for sewer pipe broke. Cheap bed mattress had to be replaced. Black water tank continually gets plugged up and will not completely empty. Shower so small very hard and dangerous to get in and out of. Very little cabinet storage in kitchen. Very poor design on awning arms. Continually hitting and cutting our heads on those arms. When we left the dealership the RV swayed so bad on the interstate we could not get over 50 mph. Had to add leveler and sway bars in order to haul. Do not buy Gulfstream.

We love our little woody but the poor quality of the decals and the constant excuses from Gulf Stream has soured us. Highly unlikely that I will buy anything Gulf Stream makes. We just spent another $2200 removing the pealing decals. I have already reinvested $1550 in decals, we are done. Be careful if buy a Gulf Stream check the dates on the tires, our unit a 2019 had 2009 tires. Also I suggest you have the dealer or go to a tire place and upgrade highest grade, the low quality investment on tires is worth the upgrade. I upgraded speakers inside, hvac is loud so needed more than a tv speaker. We have a had a good experience outside what I have said, love the unit.

Nice unit! However, Gulf Stream has a long way to go in customer service. This unit is a good value however its design is at its limits. The axle on this unit is not beefy enough for a full rig on a week long boon dock. I had the axle break. I looked at the rating for the vehicle and axle and realized the vehicle will be overloaded if you have anything more than single suitcase per adult. I had the axle brake on the road, lost the right rear wheel and tire. Since it is single axle, I went back with a 2.5 Ton axle and it rides on better tires now too! When the axle gave way the wheel tore the plastic fender skirt to shreds. Given the price, I don't hold the cheapness of the trim against them, it is the customer service that is awful. I called to replace the Red Fender Skirt(purely cosmetic). I had the most awful customer service person, tell me I have to drive seven hours to a dealer for a cheap plastic part. This is absurd! The reps response was; "Company Policy". Well welcome to Gulf Stream Customer Service. My Company policy is to avoid buying from them again!
