Gulf Stream Coach Inc. affiliate Yellowstone RV, Nappanee Ind., announced the release of the Bull Dog line of “ruggedized” all-season travel trailers designed to provide secure, comfortable living accommodations for people who work in remote locations and extreme environments.
Initially developed for field workers in the oil drilling and pipeline construction industries, the Bull Dog serves as a work-ready outpost for anyone who needs housing that can be moved quickly and easily as job site locations change, according to a news release.
While Gulf Stream Coach continues to sell fleets of modified recreational travel trailers to oil workers and other mobile work crews, the new Bull Dog extends movable housing to work locations where no ordinary travel trailer would suffice. The expanded range of operation and purpose-driven design of the Bull Dog makes it an attractive solution for commercial rental fleets and international mining, drilling and construction firms.
“Our goal was to create a home base that field workers, contractors, engineers and project managers could count on whether they are prospecting for oil in Alberta or running a mining operation in the Pacific Northwest,” said Mike Spencer, national sales manager for Yellowstone RV.
Built on a 2-inch by 14-inch tubular steel frame and measuring just under 34 feet, the Bull Dog boasts two 100-pound LP tanks, two 35,000 BTU furnaces, two 110V baseboard heaters, a 13,500 BTU roof-mounted air conditioner, 93 gallons of fresh water, four 40-gallon waste water tanks, an 80-amp power converter and R-38 insulation in floor and ceiling.
Interior amenities include a 60-inch by 80-inch walk-around queen bed, huge banks of storage cabinets, a dry bath with tub/shower, a fully equipped kitchen, a jack-knife sofa and two flat screen TVs. Finishing out the interior is over 12 running feet of counter space that serves as a spacious, flexible workstation for computing, paperwork, gear repair and other on-the-job assignments.
The Bull Dog is currently available through selected dealers in the United States and Canada. For more information, contact Mike Spencer at Yellowstone RV (phone 574-773-7761 ext. 5158; email [email protected]).
