The Cayenne toy mover, a Class C motorhome designed to perform the same functions as a sport utility trailer (SUT), will be among the new 2005 model-year products introduced during Gulf Stream Coach Inc.’s annual dealer open house, which begins Tuesday (June 1).
The dealer meeting will be at the Margaret Ann Shea Pavilion on Gulf Stream’s manufacturing complex in Nappanee, Ind.
The doors will open at 9 a.m. Tuesday and the open house will continue until 8 p.m.
Although the open house will officially end on June 7, Gulf Stream’s 2005 models will remain available for viewing by dealers and other guests in Nappanee for a few weeks after that, said Brian Shea, president of Gulf Stream’s Motorhome Division.
The Cayenne comes on the Chevrolet Kodiak C5500 chassis, which has a gross vehicle weight rating of 19,500 pounds and a gross combined weight rating of 26,000 pounds, giving it the capacity to haul motorcycles in the rear “garage” portion of the motorhome and the ability to pull a trailer at the same time, Shea said.
Gulf Stream also will introduce an “all new” Sun Voyager Special Edition Class A motorhome and Sedona luxury fifth-wheel. The Sun Voyager Class A also has a new exterior for 2005 and the Class A Scenic Cruiser was significantly redesigned, according to the company.
Meanwhile, the Independence Class A, Endura Class C, B Touring Cruiser, Conquest, Conquest Limited Edition and Prairie Schooner luxury fifth-wheel all will have new floorplans for 2005.
