Gulf Stream Coach Inc.’s Vista Cruiser ultralight travel trailer is seeing strong response from RVers who plan to spend many days and nights on the road camping, according to a press release.
Gulf Stream said that two fundamental features have resonated with “long-haul” RVers: extremely low weight and fuel-saving aerodynamics. These two features combine to minimize wear-and-tear on the tow vehicle, reduce fuel expenses, and enable RVers to go farther, stay longer, and enjoy more time away from home.
The heart of the wind-cheating aerodynamics of the Vista Cruiser is a seamless fiberglass panel up to 26 feet long that stretches from the front hitch to the rear bumper, creating a gracefully curved front wall, roof, and rear wall, with no seams, joints, or corners. Also contributing is a lowered frame that lets the Vista Cruiser slip under air that traditional-height units have to plow through, reducing fuel consumption and saving money.
A welded six-way aluminum frame and vacuum-bonded laminated walls with synthetic substrates provide ultra-low weights that reduce wear and tear on tow vehicles and make the Vista Cruiser easy to hitch up, maneuver, and tow, even on long trips.
Tim Dennig, Vista Cruiser national sales manager, said, “Since its introduction in 2006, RV enthusiasts have been quick to realize the overall benefits of the Vista Cruiser design, realizing it provides an ideal platform for long, high-mileage trips, as well as short, impromptu getaways. It also turns mini vans and smaller SUVs into tow vehicles, further reducing the cost and complexity of camping.
He added, “We’ve seen significantly increased interest at the spring shows this year, with the introduction of our new interior decors and exterior graphics, too.”
Vista Cruiser is available in 10 floorplans, 20 to 26 feet in length, on single and double axles, with weights ranging from 2,600 pounds to 3,900 pounds.
