Nappanee, Indiana-based Gulf Stream Coach has announced the release of the Vintage Cruiser, a distinctive new line of ultra-light aerodynamic fiberglass trailers that recapture the style and fun of camping in the 1950s while using the latest technology, materials, and conveniences of the 21st century.
The Vintage Cruiser project was born when photos and other records of camping in the 1950s inspired a team of designers, engineers, sales executives, and product managers, according to a company news release.
They saw how couples and families enjoyed the great outdoors when life was less complicated, less stressful, and simpler.
“Our team realized how much there was to love about the positive attitude, can-do spirit, and prosperity of the 50s generation. There was something about the look, the sound, the spirit, and the life of that era that everyone would like to recapture,” said Sue Fiedeke, Gulf Stream interior designer.
“And that’s what the design team tried to do with the Vintage Cruiser: Recapture the style of that bygone era for campers to enjoy today.”
“While the team explored camping in the 50s, we realized that there was plenty to love about the advances we’ve made in the way travel trailers are built and equipped in 2015,” said Gulf Stream Ultralight Division National Sales Manager Tim Dennig.
“That’s why the Vintage Cruiser combines the colors, shapes, style, and fun of the 50s, with the latest engineering, materials, features and functions that today’s campers simply can’t live without! Think about it—As great as the 50s were, who wants to go camping without a microwave oven, an HDTV, and a full bath?”
The Vintage Cruiser is currently available in two 19-foot floor plans each weighing less than 3,000 pounds. Both offer campers the fun and style of the 50s, with the technological advances of today in efficient, lightweight travel trailers with vacuum-bonded laminated walls, a seamless laminated fiberglass roof, premium-quality cabinetry, and appliances.
