Gulf Stream Coach Inc. is reporting strong sales for its new Wide Open line of toy haulers, introduced during the Elkhart County RV Open House in September.
“We’ve had dealers sell through their initial inventory in as little as six days,” said Rob Reid, general manager, in a press release. “It’s a powerful confirmation of the way we put the Wide Open line together. Product Manager Jason Howard started with a clean slate, collected input from toy hauler dealers across the country, and created a fleet of lightweight and luxurious floorplans on trailer and fifth-wheel chassis that dealers simply can’t keep in stock.”
Howard noted, “Our talks with dealers gave our team a price point and a list of key features that retail customers consider essential. As a result, the Wide Open specs read like a wish list for outdoor motorsports enthusiasts.”
The Wide Open line features an overall width of 102 inches, a 3,000-pound capacity textured 8-foot ramp with dovetail floor, commercial-grade hinge and positive locking mechanism, and a laminated aluminum frame floor and sidewalls. The garage includes multiple tie-downs and diamond plate rubberized flooring while a 40-gallon fueling station and generator prep are standard features.
“Thanks to input from dealers, we made sure that the new Wide Open line would appeal to other key toy hauler customers too, like extreme sports enthusiasts, serious anglers, pet breeders, flea marketers, and tailgaters.” said Howard. “Our design also offers the comfort and styling traveling couples and families want, like full kitchens, cherry hardwood cabinets, privacy window treatments, stainless appliances, king beds standard in all models, and the biggest bathroom in the toy hauler industry.”
