1997 34' Fleetwood Bounder...$22,900 obo!


Recommended Posts

I'm moving back to TN around May 20th, and I need to sell my motorhome before I move. The challenge is that I live in it full-time, but if I have to, I'll sell it before then and move back to TN earlier. But, the main thing is that I sell it by then at the latest.

- Replaced the cracked front A/C unit shroud $163.00

- Repaired leaking water tank and beefed up surrounding sheet metal for when a tire might blow out $534.95

I've been living in this motorhome since the end of Nov '07. It's traveled to and from Jacksonville, TX for the Mud Nationals, to and from Glamis, CA a few times, back and forth to Flagstaff, AZ a few times with no trouble at all. Right now I'm staying at the Pleasant Harbor RV Park on Lake Pleasant.

In case you've never owned an RV, you can expect to get 6-8mpg out of this RV towing roughly 5-6K pounds of toys behind it. We averaged 7 mpg going 70mph towing 4 UTV's behind us on an all aluminum snowmobile trailer to Jacksonville, TX for the Mud Nationals. I've found this to be the best speed to travel at for best gas mileage. If you go slower, it wants to downshift too much, and if you go faster, the gas mileage drops considerably. Also, for those that have never owned one, I was able to finance this thing for 12 years through essex credit, so the payments can be very low. I still have a loan on it, so the new owner will secure financing or cash and it will be sent to Bank of the West (Essex Credit), they'll release the lien and mail you or your bank the title.

A few things that I don't use often enough to fix:

- The main awning needs one latch fixed to extend it easily. It can still be opened no problem and extended, it just takes more time/work to do it.

- The furthest back driver's side rear storage door has some damage from the previous owner, but it still closes fine

That's all I can think of at this point. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Chris

      I have a 2004 KUBOTA RTV 900 DIESEL and I need to replace both front cv axels.I have been online looking at them and there seems to be a lot of different manufactures to choose from. My question is who makes a good aftermarket set of cv axels for this KUBOTA. I have read horror stories of people buying the  cheap Chinese brand only to find out they don't fit or they don't last very long and fail again. I hate to have to spend over $200 a shaft to get OEM from KUBOTA when I'm sure there is a company out there who probably makes it for them or makes comparable to OEM. Thanks for your help.

      Hello friends,
      I got my ODES Ravager UTV yesterday and after a couple of hours of driving when I go downhill I heard a strange loud noise a couple of times, like a gear skipping or maybe something from the differential.
      It doesn't always happen and when it does it is heard for a few seconds and then it goes away and everything works normally, I'm worried if there could be some major malfunction or what could be the problem if someone can help me?
      Thanks a lot.

      Purchased a 2011 bighorn banchee. Needs motor work. Not sure what. Husband is mechanic but not computer savvy. So, is there a manual that will tell him how to tear this down?  We have down loaded a service manual, but he says it doesn't tell him what he is looking for.

      Hey all!
      I'm on a mission to buy my first UTV soundbar as a gift for my dad. I'm aiming for something that offers great sound quality without breaking the bank – my budget is around $250. Right now, I'm considering options like ecoxgear, kemimoto, and boss.
      Does anyone have experience with these brands or specific models that you'd recommend? Any advice or suggestions would be super appreciated!
      Thanks in advance for your help!
