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.

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.

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.
