The Bounder hasn't been around for 29 years for nothin' either. Make a deal on it & start RV-ing.

We purchased ours in June of this year and love it.

Has plenty of storage and is great for traveling.

I like the Ford Chassis. There are pros and cons to all motorhomes and chassis. Find one you like and go for it.

We bought our '12 Bounder 33C three years ago on 11/11/11. It was our first RV of any type, and we have loved every minute of ownership. It's a great value for the money and we have had ZERO significant problems with ours. There was a HUGE learning curve for us, but now it's all second nature.

"DW" is internet speak for wife. Can be "dear wife" or "damn wife" depending on your mood that day. (Or any other D-word of your choice.)

We bought our 35K in July and took it on a 2300 mile trip through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado then back to Kansas. Good coach we like the floor plan. Ride was good. Did well in the Colorado mountains. Highest pass was 10,500 ft. Couch did very good. The "Tow Hale" worked far better than I thought that it would.

Talking Bounder owner

DW and I owen a 2011 35H and love it. This was our 1st motorhome with plans of moving up at a later time. As time passes and we are constantly looking I have not found a unit I would trade for. The Fleetwood service is outstanding. We were rookie rvers.

Glad to hear such positive reviews on the Bounder. We rented an RV last summer for a cross country trip (nothing like going in head first!) and had such a good time we decided we needed to have our own rig. So after months of looking, we made a deal on a 97 Bounder, 34 footer in the Ford 460. Picking it up in two weeks and can't wait. We wanted to start slow budget wise, pay cash, and after a few years if we still are having fun, we figure to move up to something newer. Nervous and excited all at the same time but looking forward to tinkering with it and taking our first trip!

Be sure to check in on the RV Forums / Ford Chassis tons of good info on the 460 F53 Chassis.
