Gulf Stream Rolling Out 2012 Streamlite Trailers
Nappanee, Ind.-based Gulf Stream Coach Inc. announced the 2012 model year enhancements to its Streamlite brand of ultra-lightweight travel trailers that will make them “key attractions for current and prospective Gulf Stream dealers” during next week’s Elkhart County 4th Annual RV Open House.
“Our dealers are seeing more and more experienced RVers who want the luxury amenities they’ve come to expect in a stylish, lightweight unit,” said Streamlite National Sales Manager Steve Jacobs in a press release. “The 2012 model Streamlite is the ideal solution, with the strength, comfort and durability of laminated high-gloss sidewalls and the rock-solid construction Gulf Stream is known for, from the frame on up.”
Breakthrough ideas are also a part of the new Streamlite, including a full-profile front fiberglass cap with a shape that’s both stylish and functional, according to Gulf Stream. “It’s the result of direct input from customers,” Jacobs said. “While some manufacturers offer partial fiberglass caps in this price class, experienced RVers know that a full fiberglass cap will resist the elements better, clean up easier, provide improved aerodynamics and look much more appealing. We think the results speak for themselves.”
Inside, the new Streamlite makes a point of using fabrics, flooring, cabinetry, electronics and furnishings that offer campers the stylish functionality they expect. Outside, the Streamlite shows off a subtle and attractive exterior “champagne” color option.
Advanced lightweight materials enable Streamlite trailers to shed hundreds of pounds of tow weight compared to conventional trailers. That weight saving translates directly into improved fuel efficiency and lower fuel costs, a key factor driving retail purchase decisions. Lighter weights throughout the Streamlite line also represent profitable sales opportunities for dealers by enabling RV shoppers to consider bigger, better-equipped units, and by opening up the RV experience to millions of families that want to use their minivan or small SUV as a tow vehicle.
When all the advances offered in the 2012 Streamlite release are combined with its extremely attractive pricing, the new line is sure to be one of the high points of interest as dealers explore product offerings during next week’s Open House.
