Decatur, Ind. – (September 17, 2010) – American Coach, the luxury coach division of Fleetwood RV, Inc., a leading producer of Class A and Class C recreational vehicles, today announced the launch of its 2011 American Tradition, American Eagle and American Heritage luxury motor homes. The Company also introduced the newest addition to the American Coach family: American Revolution.

“We are proud to announce the addition of American Revolution to our luxury line-up,” said Justin Humphreys, national sales manager for American Coach. “Its features and amenities align perfectly with what our dealers and customers have to come to expect from the American Coach line of luxury coaches."

The 2011 American Revolution features three 42-foot floor plans: a full-wall slide model with rear walk-in closet (42T); a full-wall slide model with rear bath (42W); and a quad-slide, side-aisle model with gourmet galley. Standard amenities on American Revolution include Sony® Blu-ray Home Theater System, Villa furniture, powered front privacy blinds, full tile throughout, power generator slide, Aqua Hot® heating system, residential refrigerator, and dual in-dash monitors.

"In addition to the introduction of American Revolution, there are a lot of exciting changes on our 2011 American Coach line-up; including the all-new Liberty Chassis™ platform that features 30-percent more pass-through storage space," said Chris Carter, product development manager for American Coach. "In addition, we have upgraded our interior décor selections and added high-quality Sony® televisions, DVD players and sound systems as standard features. All of these changes are a direct result of dealer and customer feedback – an integral part of our product development process.”

The 2011 American Heritage features the industry’s largest floor plan, a 45-foot full-wall-slide with 30-inch deep slide boxes (45B). This spacious floor plan provides customers with over 450 square feet of living space, and updated in 2011 to include 40” mid-ship TV, dual sinks in the rear bath and twice as much hanging space in the rear wardrobe. American Heritage is a handcrafted, made-to-order luxury coach with a long list of impressive features including exterior graphics that go through the windows for dazzling curb appeal, heated front driver/ passenger seats with built-in massage controls, dual dash monitors and temperature controls, residential-style shower, powered basement slide trays, Onan® 12.5 kw generator, quartz countertops, 46-inch Sony® LED front TV and 46”inch Sony® LED bedroom TV.

The 2011 American Eagle features three full-wall-slide models with 30” deep slide boxes for unmatched living space (42M, 42P, 45B). The 2011 American Eagle is loaded with features including roof mounted awnings, dual dash monitors, Villa® furniture, Mystera® solid surface countertops, Sony® Blu-ray DVD, Sony® LED TVs, Bose® home theater system, optional powered window day/night shades, high-gloss polished porcelain tile throughout and Kohler® faucets. In addition, the 2011 American Eagle now features a new Almond Mocha Glaze wood color, as well as redesigned cabinet door and slide-out trim for added luxury.

The 2011 American Tradition features two 42-foot full-wall-slide models (42M 42P), as well as a 45-foot, quad-slide model (45Y) with residential “gourmet galley”; all with 30” deep slide boxes. Feature highlights on the 2011 American Tradition include elegant slide out trim design, new Almond Mocha Glaze wood color, Villa® furniture, dual dash monitors, quiet air conditioning system, porcelain tiled floors throughout, Avionics entry door, power driver window, and Sony® Blu-ray Home Theater.

Model year 2011 also marks the 20th anniversary for American Coach.

"Since 1991, American Coach has produced high-quality luxury coaches and provided industry-leading aftermarket service support to our customers in a marketplace that has seen its fair share of ups and downs,” said Humphreys. “Yet I can state proudly that our passion and commitment to our customers has remained unwavering; regardless of the economic climate. In return, our customers have gone out of their way to support us whether it is with loyalty to the American Coach brand or by providing scholarships to the children of our employees. Our customers are the reason for our success over the past 20 years; which is why we have so much to celebrate during this year.”

LATEST COMMENTS ABOUT FLEETWOOD RVs
Re: Fleetwood Bounder Classic class A motorhomeGary TerryWe have the 2014 Bounder classic and love most of it! However, we are very dissatisfied that the back AC drains onto the Drivers side slide and I'm talking gallons of water, I have to spend an hour tilting the home to remove most of it, the remainder we have to put towels on top of the slide as we pull it in. Huge pain, got to be a solution. Dealer/Service Center tells us everyone has that problem, we haven't found anyone else who does!
Re: Fleetwood DiscoveryCatherineWe really like the layout of the Fleetwood discovery, but want one with a king bed. do any exist?
Re: Fleetwood Southwind class A motorhomeJoeyDo you have this problem? Own 2007 Southwind 35A with a problem of sink cabinet trim pulling away from wall when sun shines on the outside wall. Closes back when wall is shaded. Fleetwood service center was no help
Re: Fleetwood Bounder gas class A motorhomeDennis SWe have a 2011 Blunder Classic, which is a very good looking MH,,, but 45 pages including pictures dates time etc. it don't work to show proof or even get the attn.of the dealer(s), 4 in our case ,one flat refused to look at it. Main issue is the blk tank .IT HAS A DISK CUTOUT still in it and will not drain, Ive seen it float by ...while testing for it and the TECH saw it too. and the Dealer of Grass Valley did nothing. It took 6mths to get to a repair shop that would do the work... in San Jose initials are CP at A___n rv ... excellent, thorough, super reputation, I support. They should build the Rvs then all would be good. Mind you this is only one issue of a list of very poor quality control problems. it been over a year since we acquired and the MH is still sick, and stnky
Re: Fleetwood Tioga motorhomeDE EggmanWe have a 2005 Tioga our second tioga and we love it it drives great, handles great. love the layout lots of storage. this one is our 14 th unit we've been camping for 47 yrs. we've had 3 5th wheels one class A and 4 Class C's the rest were travel trailers and tioga's have been far the units we ever owned. the only thing to buy is Tioga. keep up the good work guys... .
Re: Fleetwood DiscoveryDale MacWe have a 2008 40x coach experiencing some issues be forwarned the door awning will need repair, the brake activation control switch will have to be done, two water tank connections will need to be attended too, regular trany services and oil changes on all components. We enjoy the unit but it has been high maintenence so far. We only travel 5000 miles per year so bring the chq book. Great unit all in all.
Re: Fleetwood Tioga motorhomeSaraWe purchased a 2011 Tioga Fleetwood motorhome two summers ago in the Denver area -- a HUGE MISTAKE -- it is CHEAPLY made with only retailer profit in mind and not customer satisfaction and longevity. Our problems are constant and always ongoing: door latches that won't work, cheap compartment enclosure hardware on all cupboard doors and drawers that break on the first use (nothing attaches properly and screws are too small), refrigerator and couch that are much too small, cheap outside compartment seals that come loose either by sticking to the doors when they're opened or the seals completely dislodge from the edges -- upfront replacement cost for the consumer, compartment doors with hardware to hold them open made of plastic and break easily, low grade carpet, etc. We have used our motorhome seven times and each time we return home we have another major project on our hands -- spend additonal hours fixing something that is broken or which has been dislodged after traveling 50 miles. DO NOT PURCHASE A TIOGA MOTORHOME CLASS C -- they ared not worth the money and the quality of the construction is beyond BAD!
Re: Fleetwood Tioga motorhomeDiddyWe are considering the 31N too. The one we have driven handles poorly - much worse than our 2003 Coachman. Anyone else notice the sloppy steering wheel?
Re: Fleetwood DiscoveryDavid LuseDoes anyone know how high the 1997 Fleetwood discovery 36' is? I want to know if it will fit through the barn door. Please reply to dsluse@iglide.net Anymajor issues with this year/model? Thank you.
Re: Fleetwood Flair class A motorhomestephenMy wife and i just bought a 2005 flair as our first motorhome.We have had it for two months and have camped 10 times and have added 1700 miles to the 22,000 that were on it.We have had no prob at all and really like our coach.Great entry leval coach to those looking to go this route.
Re: Fleetwood Terry Premier Travel Trailerharrislooked at a 98 20 ft terry online any one know how much this weighs?
Re: Fleetwood Tioga motorhomeNashville RVerWe bought our first rv several months ago after renting one for the first time last year. We didn't do a lot of shopping around but did do extensive Internet research. We purchased a 2011 Fleetwood Tioga 24 DSL. We love the rv but are disappointed in the quality - cheap hardware, wood trim covered in contact paper, and just sloppy workmanship. Our unit spent 5 weeks in the shop 100 miles away for a list of fixes that included window Leaks, trim that feel off the slideout while driving down the road, exhaust bracket broken, diesel generator problem, both sinks leaked, etc. We got our rv back 3 days before a planned week long trip and half the things that were supposed to be fixed weren't!! Our dealer is over 120 miles away!! We expected a few issues but nothing quite like this. In retrospect I think we would have done much more shopping around and manufacturer research!
Re: Fleetwood American Tradition luxury motorcoachBob NebelWe also own a 2008 American Tradition with the full wall slide and rear bathroom. We love our coach. It has performed well with very few minor problems.These were taken care of by the American Coach Factory Service Team headed by Randy.I had my problems repaired at a FMCA National Convention and therefore didn't even have to add additional travel to our trip. Fleetwood and American Coach has always been known for there service and I can say they live up to their reputation. Safe travels, look at American Coach before you purchase.
Re: Fleetwood Storm class A motorhomeDave WWe purchased a 2011 Fleetwood Storm last October. It has been nothing but a nightmare. From generator failing (during hurricane Irene) to windshield moulding falling out, to fan to cool refrigerator improperly located etc etc. Our biggest complaint is the overhead bed in the front of the unit! When going down hill, braking etc it screaches and rattles to the point of being unable to carry on a conversation in the coach. Our dealer has tried numerous fixes as advised by Fleetwood. Some relief has been obtained, but the problem is still there. Personally I think it's a design flaw that needs to be remedied back at the drawing board. It has completely soured my wife and I on the whole motorhome experience.
Re: Fleetwood Providence luxury motorcoachbobI own a 2007 fleetwood providence. I have had problems with the full slide. Am still having problems with it. Once the locking mechanism didn't work. Next it wouldn't close all the way on the bottom. Now the locking mechanism isn't working again. Am have problems with the awning on the full slide will not stay tight.
Re: Fleetwood Terry Premier Travel TrailerMike and Wanda from STLWe just bought an older Terry 5th wheel (21 ft) and the price was what we could afford. The trialer needs a few repairs but on the whole it still is as good as it gets. I'm trying to find out about replacing the Atwood 6gal hot water heater with a tankless model. Any suggestions?
Re: Fleetwood DiscoverycraigDan, my wife and I purchased a 07 39v with motion sat. All you have to do to disconnect the disconnect is to plug the tv into the other power recepticle?
Re: Fleetwood Terra LX class A motorhomelarrySorry I bought an entry-level MH. Bought new in 2008 but only used 5 times due to illness. Less than 2000 miles. Battery disconnect switches don't work, trimming inside is falling off, (the staples didn't hold), entry door keeps sticking and won't hold the screen door when opening, rubber gaskets around storage doors has fallen off and a couple storage doors won't stay open, rubber around some of the screen on windows have also came apart. Am now waiting for an appointment to get my air conditioners fixed. The dealer I bought it from no longer deals with Fleetwood and wants nothing to do with it.
Re: Fleetwood Jamboree class C motorhomeLeeWe purchased a 2010 Jamboree 31M used. We have enjoyed it very much, except the dealer lied to us and told us it had a 60 gallon water tank, when in reality it is only 35 gal. It appears this is the only model with a 35 gal tank and others have the 60 gal. We do a lot of dry camping, therefore are wondering if anyone has been able to add an additional tank to this model to expand it's capacity, and how we might do that.
Re: Fleetwood Tioga motorhomeComo43We rented a Tioga last summer and it was great. We've compared many RVs and now have decided on the Tioga Ranger 31N with the queen bed and bunk beds. This is a really great layout for us and our 2 kids.
