There’s a trend that’s been going on for some time now, but for a while it sort of flew under the radar. It’s called the “retro look”. Now it’s no longer flying under the radar but front and center in just about anything you see these days, including RVs.
Why just a few years ago vintage looking retro trailers were only being built by smaller, specialty RV manufacturers. Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find any major manufacturer who isn’t building at least one retro model trailer. In other words, Retro is hot.
Here, Jeff Johnston takes out a new Gulf Stream Coach retro-model trailer called the Vintage Cruiser, which, by the way, has become one of Gulf Stream’s hottest lines. As Jeff often does when he reviews RVs, he took a Vintage Cruiser for an extended weekend review and was pleasingly surprised with this light-weight trailer.
The design harkens back to the fifties both in its exterior and interior design, only these beauties have all the 21st century technology you’d expect in a modern RV. The Vintage Cruiser series is available from 17 – 23-feet in length. The company now offers a new model with bunks for the kids or grandparents. Check out Jeff’s review and who knows, maybe one of these may be in your driveway soon.
