Just picked up our 2020 Gulfstream Vintage Cruiser 17RWD

Picked it up just after lunch and set up for the night at KOA Doswell VA. Much prefer this over Americamps as it is a mile or so away from I95. Keeping it dry as it is still below freezing at night for a while. Really doggin this floorplan.

RE: It has been 6 yrs since we sold our TT--back looking again!

My MIL won't go often. She's not really the "camping" type. Not sure what she was thinking. I had them add in the Husky Centerline TS wd hitch. I thought they were really fair on the price installed, hundreds less than other dealers. I already installed the Prodigy P2 and got the plug and play harness. Also have some inexpensive mirror extensions from K Source. All we have left to do is buy some sheets as we pick it up Saturday and I decided to book the KOA at Kings Dominion because it's so close to the dealer in case we find any issues. Won't be able to hook up anything but electrical since it's still dropping below freezing round here.

RE: It has been 6 yrs since we sold our TT--back looking again!

I guess I mean to say the fiberglass/smooth walled trailers with aluminum structures vs the stick and tin style. We looked at a ton in person and online. I can see the quality difference in the Intech's and Little Guys etc, but we couldn't justify paying $30k and getting a tiny wet bath. These "Vintage" trailers might be a little gimmicky, but I'm happy with it. Just wished it had an enclosed underbelly and real fiberglass nose. I didn't mean to refer to the likes of Scamps etc. I really liked the Kodiak Cub 177RB, but it was 600 pounds plus heavier and that CW I went to would make anyone NOT want to buy a RV. $2100 in fees, are you fricking kidding me??? I will say Campers Inn was pretty fair with a $795 doc/dest/whatever fee. They gave us a great price short of driving 1000 miles away to save a few hundred. I guess I can't say for sure until we get there and finalize everything, but I have the buyers order with the final price. Worst comes to worst, I will go with USAA at 5.9%. Can't wait to go glamping! We plan to get there pretty early so we can get to the campground at either the Kings Dominion KOA or Americamps there to test it out.

RE: It has been 6 yrs since we sold our TT--back looking again!

Well, we just did the deal over the phone with Campers Inn Thornburg VA. They are moving from Fredericksburg. 2020 Gulfstream Vintage Cruiser 17RWD. We walked through it a few weeks ago and really liked it. I’ve been searching the net non stop and we’ve looked at several. We love the dinette on the rear, separate shower and bath, and partial walk around east west bed. Nothing came close at the weight either. 2600 uvw, 286 tongue weight. After searching around and missing the deal on two used tt’s because folks must take off work during the week, we decided this trailer is the best choice for us. The only two negatives for me were the non enclosed underbelly and no smooth fiberglass nose. But none of the others we liked had Azdel and one was stick and tin with none of the above. Looking forward to glamping again!! I made sure they included the battery, propane, and s deluxe starter kit. Now to order a Prodigy P2 or P3 and harness. We pick it up in two weeks!!

Well, we found a couple we really like, but we may need to wait just a bit longer. It's so hard to be financially responsible when you love glamping and miss it.

RE: It has been 6 yrs since we sold our TT--back looking again!

It would be so cool to run into old CG friends again! We may have to go with something a little less expensive as we have to pay for our son's welding school next. All the TT's under 20k at are under 3500# have weak points, but as I say, you better be handy if you want to use a TT.

It has been 6 yrs since we sold our TT--back looking again!

So our youngest just graduated HS, so we are looking at TT's that are 3500 or less. What we're looking for preferably, is a dinette on one end, bed on the other in case the MIL wants to come along. I've been to two RV shows in the last month and was able to eliminate the $30k Intech Horizon and Little Guy Max as they are just too cramped and it's a no to wetbaths. If we were to spend 30k, we'd have to drive to New York from NC to get my favorite, the Holiday House 18RB. Here's my list so far for TT's under 20k, under 3500 lbs, fibeglass construction. Keystone Bullet Crossfire 1900RD, Gulfstream Vintage Cruiser 19ERD, and the Apex Nano 191RBS. They all have their pluses and minuses. The Vintage Cruiser is the lightest at 3090#. The Apex Nano is the least expensive at $16500 and has the nicer fiberglass/plastic end cap with aluminum wheels. I have not been able to walk through and put my hands on the Gulfstream. :) I hope to be a contributing member here again, I have done a lot of video watching and learning. We can't wait to go glamping!

RE: Sadly selling our TT this Saturday....

Reviving old thread because our youngest just graduated HS and we have started looking at TT's again! So, we are looking at TT's that are 3500 or less. What we're looking for preferably, is a dinette on one end, bed on the other in case the MIL wants to come along.
