Gulf Stream Vintage Cruiser travel trailer 17RWD highlights:
You will love the rear dinette with retro-style upholstery inside this cute Vintage Cruiser model 17RWD. Here you can enjoy your daily meals, a game of cards, or just sit and sip a great cup of coffee and enjoy the view through the windows on all three sides. The front corner bed, on the opposite end, offers a cozy night sleep for two when night falls, and the dinette can also be transformed into another bed if needed for a third adult or a couple of kiddos. You will find plenty of storage throughout in overhead cabinets, cupboards, and drawers. The bath even features linen storage beneath the washstand, plus so much more!
Any Vintage Cruiser model will bring you a lightweight and fun vintage vibe from the 50's when life was simpler and the pace was slower and more relaxed. These 20-26-foot models put state-of-the-art conveniences into the look of yesteryear to bring you a camping experience like no other. The Vintage Cruiser can easily be towed by your family SUV or Mini-van, and each unit features Congoleum non-stick flooring, Roanoke light Cherry cabinetry with flat panel vintage cabinet doors and drawers, LED lighting both inside and out, and a full dry bath all nestled within a welded tubular aluminum frame enclosed with a vacuum-bonded laminated fiberglass exterior including a one-piece fiberglass roof.
Everyone was pleasant to deal with at the Bath location. We got a great camper, which we love. Helene was great I tell everyone to check out Wilkins if they are considering purchasing an RV.

Gulf Stream, a leading manufacturer of a full range of RV products was founded and is still owned by the Shea family, originating in the small community of Nappanee, Indiana in 1971. Founder Jim Shea Sr. was inspired by the quintessentially entrepreneurial spirit of Elkhart County Indiana, and was particularly to the heritage of craftsmanship found in Nappanee, where ties to Amish and Mennonite traditions of handcrafted furnishings and homes were still strong.
Back then, the family operation consisted of manufactured housing (Fairmont Homes). Jim Shea built the operation from the ground up. He ran the show and his sons joined him learning the business through good old fashioned hands-on experience.
In 1983, the Shea’s established Gulf Stream Coach producing a top quality line of motor homes, travel trailers, and fifth wheel trailers. Gulf Stream’s first RV, the Foxfire travel trailer, benefited from techniques that had made their housing company successful. It allowed Gulf Stream Coach to put things in the Foxfire that weren’t seen in travel trailers.
The company continued to grow and in the 1990’s the three sons assumed the lead in day to day operations. The family patriarch and company founder was recognized for his career contributions to the recreational vehicle and manufactured housing industries by being named to the MH/RV Hall of Fame
Today, Gulf Stream Coach is the industry's leading family-owned, family-operated RV manufacturer, encompasses 22 brands with over 140 different models — all brought to you by the efforts of more than 1,500 dedicated associates. Over its history, the company has produced almost 300,000 recreation vehicles, contributing to the well-being and family fun of hundreds of thousands of people across the US and Canada.
It's common to find the Shea family at RV shows and campgrounds, enjoying Gulf Stream products, and interacting with customers, identifying features they consider important, bringing those ideas back to the Gulf Stream Coach team.
The family links run deep at Gulf Stream, among the skilled craftspeople who build the product, through the family-based management, on to family-based RV dealerships across the United States and Canada, and finally, to the families who buy and enjoy Gulf Stream Coach products.
In today's world where huge corporations work to satisfy stockholders and financiers, the people at Gulf Stream Coach are dedicated to make families - ours, dealers, and owners - happy and proud.
