Gulfstream sea hawks, are running from a low of 10,000 to a high of `13500 in THAT YEAR model.
IMO they are a high level entry unit.
1997 chev crew cab 454, 5 sp. 4.10
Stay away from any product from GULFSTREAM!! in my opinion.
I camp regularly with a couple that has an early 2000 Sea Hawk and love it. To my knowledge they have not had any issues with it.

I just sold a 1996 Sea Hawk 32 foot 5th wheel for $9500. It was in good shape for the age, although the awning was in rough shape.
I had it since the fall of 1998.
They had problems with the front hitch structure. There was a recall. I'm not sure what years were covered. Mine was fixed under warranty by the dealer.
They wanted to attach an external structure under the overhang to brace it up. I refused and they strengthened it internally. I have, however, seen Sea Hawks with external hitch bracing.
Mine had the galvanized metal underbelly too. And fiberglass insulation throughout the bottom too.
Ours was a mid kitchen and it had a separate sewer dump for that tank. It was a real pain to have to hook up the sewer dump twice every time.
We really liked our Sea Hawk. It was a good trailer.
