Gulf Stream Introduces Cabin Cruiser Line

Nappanee, Indiana-based Gulf Stream Coach has announced the release of the Cabin Cruiser, a new line of ultra-light fiberglass laminated-sidewall travel trailers that capture one of the most memorable and charming aspects of camping, the look of knotty pine paneling so often found in family vacation cabins and wooden boats.

“We’ve learned that the decor inside a travel trailer has a powerful emotional effect on campers, especially when it can recall fond memories of the past,” explained Tim Dennig, national sales manager for the Gulf Stream Coach Lightweight Division, in a company news release.

“Our new Cabin Cruiser features warm, rich wood tone paneling and cabinetry that sets a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. People step inside, and just fall in love with the look,”

Of course the Cabin Cruiser delivers all the benefits of a technologically advanced laminated-wall travel trailer, with structural panels, insulation, and a welded aluminum frame vacuum-bonded with fiberglass exterior walls, said Dennig.

An electric awning with LED atmosphere lighting, microwave oven, molded shower surround, and 13,500-BTU ducted air conditioning are part of an included option package.

The three inaugural Cabin Cruiser floor plans range from 25 feet to 32 feet in length with base weight between 4,000 pounds and 5,500 pounds.

Worth Pondering…

Man has created some lovely dwellings—some soul-stirring literature. He has done much to alleviate physical pain. But he has not…created a substitute for a sunset, a grove of pines, the music of the winds, the dank smell of the deep forest, or the shy beauty of a wildflower.
