Parting with our motorhome is hard. For years we have traveled in it, babied it, and enjoyed every moment. Most of our time was spent in Arizona while the snow melted at home. But now we have a place to stay in Arizona and the motorhome is just sitting in the barn (where it spends its off seasons) and as we age, it is time to let it go.
As can be seen in the options list, our Bounder has a multitude of options; and they are good options. We have been inside hundreds of motorhomes over the years and have yet to see something on any of them that we wish our unit had. I cannot say that we have never had problems with the unit, but most have been minor; the biggest expense by far was the new tires. But we have kept up with all the smaller glitches and everything works, and we are very proud of that. Except for a little wear and tear, this motorhome looks and runs like new.
I want to talk about a few of the features that I like the most.
The electric system – This RV has every electric protection you’ll ever need. Just plug it in - there no need for those expensive Surge protectors as it is already built in. If you are on 15- or 30-amp power, it will not blow the main breaker, but it will instead shed cabin loads to keep you within the supplied power.
Hot water – The water heater is in the rear of the unit. To get hot water to the kitchen wastes time and water. So, I added an electric instant hot water unit under the kitchen sink – problem solved.
Watching TV – The TV came mounted above the cockpit. The couch is of course along the side wall making it a pain-in-the-neck to watch. So, we moved the TV to a cabinet on the side wall opposite the couch and added an HDMI cable and a motorized lift. Now the TV is convenient to watch and out of site when it is not in use. We replaced the spot in the cockpit with a handy map of the US.
I could go on-and-on about things like the large refrigerator, extensive storage, awesome sleep number bed, surround sound system, heat pumps, easy to clean exterior, awning enclosure, easy and comfortable to drive, and ………………, but I think you get the idea. Fleetwood did it right on this very rare motorhome.
