Gulf Stream sees more demand for Lodge Series

NAPPANNEE, Ind. — Camping dreams come in all sizes, a fact confirmed by the popularity of the new 40-foot, 11-inch 406 FLR Lodge Series floor plan from the Conquest/Innsbruck brands of Gulf Stream Coach, the company announced today.

“We’re extremely excited about the rapidly expanding sales of our Lodge Series floor plans, driven by the newest ‘star of the show’ that first appeared in Louisville last fall, the quad-slide 406FLR,” said National Sales Manager Randy Baskerville.  “It’s one of six Lodge Series floor plans that all deliver the low-price, value-driven construction and features Conquest and Innsbruck are famous for.”

“Fortunately, our Lodges fit right into our regular production schedule, even at busy times like this.  Unlike some manufacturers, we don’t ‘batch build’ our lodges, so we can replace sold units and fill new orders, giving dealers exactly what they want right through the busiest part of the selling season,” Baskerville said.

Sullivan RV, of Decatur, Ind., discovered the profit potential of the Lodge Series when it featured and sold a 406FLR at the 2015 Fort Wayne Winter RV Show.  Following that success, Sullivan RV General Manager Michael Kurtz decided to develop a new profit center featuring several Lodge Series floor plans.

“Many people simply have no idea how much space, comfort, and convenience they can get for their money in a Conquest or Innsbruck Lodge,” Kurtz explained.   “The overall length, the added width provided by the slideouts, and the 8-foot ceilings work together to give owners a lifestyle that no other camping experience can duplicate.”

“As soon as a couple steps inside a Lodge, you can see the wheels turn as they realize they can easily and economically turn their weekend family getaways into season-long vacations.  It’s a wonderful lifestyle opportunity for our customers and a profitable new business opportunity for us,” Kurtz said.

Gulf Stream National Sales Manager Baskerville said, “Our sales leader, the 406FLR, uses four slideouts to maximize the living space, but all of our Lodge floor plans offers something unique:  A remarkably economical, comfortable, and relaxing way to own and enjoy a family vacation home.”
