Beyond the long list of features and advanced construction, it’s the knotty pine paneled interior that is igniting the growth in Cabin Cruiser sales.

The warm wood tones, along with a camping family’s spirit of adventure, turn the Cabin Cruiser from a travel trailer into a cozy mountain cabin, a summer beach house, or a classic luxury yacht.

“No other travel trailer I’ve seen causes as many oohs and ahhs when retail customers step inside,” said Paul Campbell, Gulf Stream Coach director of marketing, in a company news release.

Worth Pondering…

There is little to disturb me

But the pine squirrel falling cones.

In the inlet is a splashing,

It’s the dollys in a fight

Over who will use that riffle

For to spawn their eggs tonight.
