Gulf Stream Conquest Class C, Hitching and Unhitching a 5th Wheel Trailer, Cooling your RV Refrigerator

Gulf Stream Conquest Class C

Gulf Stream Class CLike most categories of RVs, the class C motorhome market has been seeing record growth for the past few years especially with young growing families or grandparents with grandkids in tow.

If your RV taste leans toward a motorized RV as opposed to a towable and you are on a family budget then check out this week’s feature story on the Gulf Stream Coach, Conquest class C motorhome.

Gulf Stream Class CIt’s been a while since we’ve done a feature on a class C so this story gave Jeff Johnston an opportunity to get back into the class C style of RVing.

Jeff and Pam took the Conquest out for a few days of travel and camping to get a good feel for what the Conquest has to offer and one thing it has is… plenty of room.

Gulf Stream Class CLike most class C’s, the Conquest has the big over-the-cab extension which adds a whole lot of sleeping space without taking up any space in the general living area. Also, like many class C’s, the Conquest is built on the popular, fuel-efficient Ford E-350 or E-450 chassis. And like all class C’s the cab area is the same as any E-350 or E-450 van so driving Conquest won’t take a major learning experience to find yourself comfortable behind the wheel.

The Conquest has models varying from 24-feet right up to 34-feet, so you’re sure to find a size and floor plan that will fit your needs. When it comes to amenities… the Conquest comes with most features anyone would want, but if you’re looking for extras, Gulf Stream has plenty of options you can choose from.

Check out this week’s feature and for more information on the Conquest Class C or any Gulf Stream product.


Hitching and Unhitching a 5th Wheel Trailer

How to Hitch and Unhitch a 5th WheelIf you’re looking buying a 5th wheel trailer or have just recently bought one, you’ll find this week’s RV Education 101 feature very timely.

Hitching and unhitching a 5th wheel trailer isn’t really difficult, but if you don’t do it right, then it can become a pain in the ‘you-know-what’.

This week, Mark Polk shows us the proper and….. safe way to hitch and unhitch your 5th wheel. Like Mark says, “Once you know the basics and right way to do it, with a little practice, this part of your RVing experience will be a breeze rather than a pain.”

Check out all the videos and lessons Mark and Dawn have to offer at RV Education 101.


Cooling your RV Refrigerator

Tip from Jeff Johnston - cool that referIf you’re an experienced RVer then you already know when you first turn on your refrigerator after its been off for a while, it takes hours to get it down to operating temperature. So, you plan accordingly and turn on the refer about eight hours ahead of time or even longer. OK…. That’s the way it is so you live with it, but you don’t have to anymore.

Jeff Johnston, our associate producer and host of the show, has been RVing since… well, lets just say many years ago and he does know a trick or two. One is how to speed up getting your refrigerator cooled down in about half the time.

Now this may seem very unconventional and even strange but Jeff keeps a few concrete bricks in his home freezer and when he’s planning on heading out on a trip, he puts those frozen bricks in the RV refrigerator and the cold from the bricks brings that refer down to operating temperature in no time.

I told you this would sound strange, but it works and that’s all that matters.. right? You can check out Jeff’s other RV ideas right here on our website or log onto our Facebook page on Wednesday evenings and join Jeff on Rollin’ On Live. Here are some of those past Rollin’ On Live shows.
