Fleetwood Bounder class A gas motorhome exterior

With 3 interior decors to choose from and 7 floorplans, the Bounder is a beautiful gas motorhome from Fleetwood. Bounder is a trusted name. Fleetwood says "Bounder has been popular for more than 20 years, with sales unmatched by any other motor home brand."

The Bounder features aluminum interlocking floor/wall/ceiling framing.  On the exterior, 2 graphic schemes are available and full-body paint is standard.  The inside is beautiful too, as you can see from the pictures below:

There is a bedroom slide-out on every model. Fleetwood says "nothing's more relaxing than the inviting bed, with its queen-size Restonic mattress. For even more cushiony acreage, some models offer an optional king-size bed."

FLOORPLANS

We show 3 of the 7 Bounder floorplans below. The first we show is the 32W, the shortest model with 33'3" exterior length. 2 slides and a beautiful use of interior space.  (There are several options with most floorplans: sleeper sofa, table with chairs, king bed etc.)

Next we show the 35E with a length of 36'3". 2 slides again, but with 3 feet extra length, a more spacious feeling of course.  This is an interesting layout with the shower etc. at the rear and the half bathroom forward of the bedroom.  (A similar floorplan, the 35H - not shown, has an additional toilet in the rear bathroom):

Finally we show the 38P. Another 2 feet longer at 38'3" - the longest Bounder.  3 slides and a lot of space.  This is the arrangement shown in the interior picture higher on this page:

Dennis 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
Robert CarrI bought a Fleetwood in February. Incredible buy. Good price and it's been trouble free so far apart from 3 minor items (2 electrical and one for a water valve sticking). The dealer is still in business and I'm getting excellent service.
Dennis PI have a 2006 Bounder. Great design but I found about 8-10 workmanship issues that drove me nuts until fixed. Liked both interior and exterior.
Bart HThe Bounder was priced between $103K and $132K for the gas version or between $174K and $182K for the diesel version when I bought mine. This is a lot of extra money to pay for the diesel engine. Unless you're going to do a lot of miles it doesn't really make sense in my opinion. I have a gas bounder and I use it about 6000 miles per year maximum. I can't ever imagine spending the extra for the diesel.
