Gulf Stream Coach Inc. is reporting solid consumer demand for the company’s 41-foot 406 FLR Lodge Series floorplan in its Conquest/Innsbruck brands.
“We’re extremely excited about the rapidly expanding sales of our Lodge Series floorplans, driven by the newest ‘star of the show’ that first appeared in Louisville last fall, the quad-slide 406FLR,” said National Sales Manager Randy Baskerville in a press release. “It’s one of six Lodge Series floorplans that all deliver the low-price, value-driven construction and features Conquest and Innsbruck are famous for.”
“Fortunately our lodges fit right into our regular production schedule, even at busy times like this. Unlike some manufacturers, we don’t ‘batch build’ our lodges, so we can replace sold units and fill new orders, giving dealers exactly what they want right through the busiest part of the selling season,” Baskerville added.
Sullivan RV of Decatur, Ind., discovered the profit potential of the Lodge Series when it featured and sold a 406FLR at the 2015 Fort Wayne Winter RV Show. Following that success, Sullivan RV General Manager Michael Kurtz decided to develop a new profit center featuring several Lodge Series floorplans.
“Many people simply have no idea how much space, comfort, and convenience they can get for their money in a Conquest or Innsbruck Lodge,” Kurtz explained. “The overall length, the added width provided by the slideouts, and the eight-foot ceilings work together to give owners a lifestyle that no other camping experience can duplicate.”
“As soon as a couple steps inside Lodge, you can see the wheels turn as they realize they can easily and economically turn their weekend family getaways into season-long vacations. It’s a wonderful lifestyle opportunity for our customers and a profitable new business opportunity for us,” Kurtz said.
Baskerville noted, “Our sales leader, the 406FLR, uses four slideouts to maximize the living space, but all of our Lodge floorplans offers something unique: A remarkably economical, comfortable, and relaxing way to own and enjoy a family vacation home.”
