Most Common Gulf Stream BT Cruiser Problems

 Many people who are in search of an RV come across a Gulf Stream BT Cruiser and wonder if they have any problems. Here are some of the most common problems with this particular RV.

What are the most common problems with the Gulf Stream BT Cruiser? Most people complain of loose screws, nuts, and bolts, and inadequate construction. Additionally, many of the products used to build the RV are cheap and do not wear well. Many have also complained of leaks, not only in the plumbing but also in the roof.

This is in no way trying to convince you to buy a Gulf Stream BT Cruiser. We simply would like to state the problems you may run into while using this RV camper.

Gulf Stream BT Cruiser Inadequate Construction

As stated before, many have complained about the inadequate construction of the Gulf Stream BT CruiserLoose screws, nuts, and bolts that are loose or loosen easily after traveling for a while.

Here are a few of the complaints from actual users.

Sticking wood screws into 1/8th inch fiberglass or 1/16th inch panelling is no way to construct a unit given the stress that an RV takes. The supports for the table top when folded into a bed were out by greater than 1 1/2 inch.

I looked at a Gulfstream RV – class C a few years ago and questioned their quality control even then. Doors wouldn’t shut properly, drawers were crooked, etc. etc. There were wood shavings and loose screws behind the drawers and in various places. I always take the drawers out and look behind and inside the structure just to see if it is “clean” or not – it just says a lot about quality control.

Leaks & Squeaks in the Gulf Stream BT Cruiser RV

In addition to inadequate construction, many have had problems with leaks and squeaks in their Gulf Stream BT Cruiser camper. Additionally, it can be difficult to get the manufacturer to honor their warranty.

The friends who purchased a brand new BT cruiser complained it leaked like a sieve and it spent more time in the shop than on the road. They had a terrible time with the factory honoring the warranty.

I would check carefully for leaks, especially the slide out seals. The person I sold it to had problems with leaking slideout seals. Mine had a Generac generator. The roof was fiberglass so that is a plus. We had a squeak but it was not too bad. An older MH might develop squeaks and leaks so be careful.

If you do run into any of these problems with your Gulf Stream BT Cruiser, such as leaking through your fiberglass, you may want to consider owning a dehumidifier. This will help you draw moisture out of the flooring and air, making your RV safer.
