Gulf Stream Coach Hosts 2024 Vista & Vintage Cruiser Rally – RVBusiness – Breaking RV Industry News

NAPPANEE, Ind. – Last week Gulf Stream Coach hosted its first ever Vista & Vintage Cruiser Rally at the Gulf Stream country club facilities in Nappanee, Ind., according to a release. There were over 100 customers present with their Vista or Vintage Cruiser in every size and color. The country club has hosted numerous customer events and one-day rallies over the years, but this is the first time it has been converted to a large campground to allow Vista & Vintage customers to stay for four nights.

The Vista & Vintage Cruiser brands have a passionate customer base who have put on approximately 20 rallies themselves in the last 10 years that Gulf Stream has been building the products. With the 10th anniversary of the product approaching, Gulf Stream felt it was time to have an official Gulf Stream-hosted rally.

According to the Gulf Stream Chairman Dan Shea, “The facilities have been used for day rallies, but the original design for the park was to host our customers onsite for overnight rallies in addition to traditional use for employee and dealer functions. This rally was the fulfillment of the vision for the Gulf Stream country club in Nappanee. It was a thrill to see customers enjoying the many amenities that our park has to offer.”

The campers enjoyed using the recreational facilities including fishing, outdoor games, campfires, and taking in the beautiful scenery of the park.

During the rally events, the Vista & Vintage customers got to attend the Cruiser College where customers could ask questions about their trailers to the Gulf Stream production team. Rally attendees also had the opportunity to visit the supplier tent where various suppliers gave informational talks on certain aspects of the trailers. Not only did rally attendees learn a lot about construction and maintenance of the Vista & Vintage Cruiser, there was also a lot of fun events. The Margret Ann Shea Pavilion hosted a sock hop complete with a live DJ, karaoke, a best-dressed award, and plenty of dancing. On the final night, customers got a taste of Nappanee with a traditional Amish feast and authentic buggy rides around the lakes at the facilities.

Perhaps the greatest part of the rally was the comradery between the fellow Vista & Vintage owners. The customers all had a lot of fun getting to meet other owners, telling their camping stories, and showing off their decorated trailers. The unique nature of the Vintage Cruiser and its colorful design leads to many interesting stories of being the most popular trailer in the campground. Many attendees boasted about what an amazing experience the rally was. The Gulf Stream team was extremely happy to lay the foundation for the lifelong friendships that were built at our rally and further welcome our customers into the Gulf Stream family.
