We saw the Gulf Stream Crescendo 325 Fred Toy Hauler last year in Florida and liked the idea of it very much. Is 35 ft. long. Has the diesel engine in front and has a small "garage" under the raised bed where the engine would have been. Would easily take a motorcycle or two, ATV, etc.

Would appreciate views on this rig, Gulf Stream in general, FREDs in general, and anything else. Thanks!

Bummer you haven't had a response. I'm also looking at a Gulf Stream Toy Hauler, but it's the G-Force 5th wheel model. I haven't had much luck finding any owners on this site either. Seems like a good company with a lot of innovative ideas.

I've been kind of considering the Damon Outlaw which is very similar to the Gulf Stream. Safari and Newmar also make class A toy haulers. I'm surprised they aren't more popular and talked about on this forum. A good used '07 Damon Outlaw can be had for about $70,000. I'm a full timer in my 40' class A and I'm not sure I'd be as comfortable in the smaller living space toy haulers is my only hesitation in switching to one.

Yes! We bought a 2009 with 2000 miles in Arizona in January 2010 and are very happy with it. The climb-in bed takes a bit of getting used to, but we love the storage bay for bicycles, lawn furniture, hobby equipment, and lots of other stuff. We converted one of the storage closets in the slide-out into a pantry by adding extra shelves, and find it very comfortable. One thing we noticed was that newer models have a better door-locking system on the big bay doors than ours (we had an incident with the door coming off in transit immediately after taking possession because we hadn't checked the locks and cable-stay). But generally happy with the service we've received from Freightliner, and with the rig itself. It has lots of power and is very maneuverable. For us (two adults, one cat) it's a great rig.
