Help need advise on purchase
« on: March 14, 2010, 12:16:57 PM »
I am looking at a 2005 Gulfstrean Crescendo Model 8366. It has a 350 Cat  w/6sp Allison and 20,000 miles on it, seems to be a nice coach with some extras. I do not know anything about these coaches, if you can help me out I would appreciate it. Asking price is 79,000. NADA is 100,000 low retail. Is Gulfstream a good brand, or should I keep looking?
Thanks, John

There have been comments on Gulfstream in some recent posts I think, you can search them. I hear it is not nearly one of the high-level brands. That said, lots of folks have them and like them apparently. We rented a Gulfstream Independence a couple of years ago that was not sturdy at all, wouldn't want to fulltime in it. Good luck in your search.

I don't see a an 8366 model listed under the NADA guides for the Gulfstream Crescendo Series.  The 8386 model (38 footer) has a NADA low retail price of $73,850.  The 8356 model (36 footer) NADA low retail price is $68,580.  Both have 350 hp engines.

I can't see $100k for a Crescendo either and NADA seems to agree. Dealers probably value it higher, though.

I think the 8366 is a 36 footer

Thanks for the input, I will pass on this one. It was an 8386. I will keep looking. I noticed some big discounts on Forest River Georgrtown and Gulf Stream Independence new gas powered. Leaning toward Goregetown (Ford) if I can't find used MH priced right.
