Gulf Stream Towables Key on Consumer Trends
Gulf Stream Coach Inc. reported that the Nappanee, Ind.-based builder’s towable offerings were resonating with consumers during the early round of shows.
“Figures from Statistical Surveys Inc. for the key indicator month of February show Gulf Stream retail sales up more than 29% over last year,” said Gulf Stream Executive Vice President Phil Sarvari in a press release. “We’re excited by the success of Gulf Stream Coach dealers at this year’s shows, and we are working hard to help our dealers take advantage of the trends that will extend the strong results of the season through the year.”
According to Gulf Stream, brands that were well received at RV shows and on dealer lots include:
• The VISA “super-lightweight” travel trailer, built with a distinctive one-piece laminated fiberglass roof that stretches in an aerodynamic arc from the front hitch to the rear bumper. The series provides the benefits of both advanced composites and handcrafted hardwoods while offering spacious, full-function floorplans.
• Gulf Stream’s new StreamLite/Gulf Breeze Champagne Series 30DBS, featuring a champagne-colored laminated exterior and high-gloss fiberglass front cap. Gulf Stream said that floorplans attracted the attention of both first-timers and veteran trailer campers.
• Gulf Stream affiliate Yellowstone RV’s Canyon Trail fifth-wheels, set off by a cherry stained interior option, feature a variety of floorplans and chassis technologies, including the SB-1500 floorplan built specifically for half-ton crew-cab pickups with extra-short cargo beds.
Randy Baskerville, general manager for the lightweight Ameri-Lite trailer noted, “Our Ameri-Lite 14RBC can give young families years of unforgettable camping experiences in the great outdoors for less than the price of a back yard hot-tub. That’s exactly what people are looking for at RV shows – unforgettable experiences and true value.”
