About to buy a 2011 Fleetwood Bounder 33u

A coworker's dad works at a dealership and they had this unit on the lot. I am very interested and I have been shopping for a while now. The only other RV that seemed to get me excited was the Jayco Precept or a used Newmar Bay Star. So we have narrowed it down to this Bounder. He told me he "wasn't gonna make any money from me" I always find that statement a bit suspicious. But the price seemed ok. He quoted me $76,000 and $82,000 OTD. What are your thoughts on this unit??? Any tips would be appreciated.

I have not seen a 33U in person; is that one huge slide? We have had good luck with our Bounder. Here are a few listings so you can see how that price compares... New and Used Fleetwood Bounder 33u RVs for Sale - RVTrader.com

I feel fairly confident that the dealer will "make money on you" , but that's why he's in business. Just make sure all the major systems work! Good luck.

Hi & welcome to iRV2. Sarah's right, they'll make a profit, don't you worry. Although that price appears to be decent. What's in the OTD price? Tax, title, dealer prep, full tank of gas...etc? Just wondering what all you're getting for the extra $6k. I remember looking at those FWS's when they 1st came to Bounders in about 09. The wheel-well trim piece comes out with it & looks kinda weird. That Ford V10 will haul you around everywhere no problem.

Bounders are great units or they wouldn't still be around since 1986. We sure like ours.
