Is the Bounder a Good Choice?

We are new to IRV2 and to RV'ing in general... But we have done our fair share of camping and outdoors experiences..

Now we are ready to take the step to a Class A motor coach and the Bounder is at the top of our list.

Our local dealer has a Fleetwood Bounder 36E which we really love and can see ourselves enjoying...

Is this a good starter rig for newbies to RVing?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

It's probably the most popular coach in the Fleetwood line if not the most popular coach of all mfgs. You'll find most people here love there's. Good luck!!

Good rig for the price point they were built to meet. Lots out there too. If you like it and it checks out OK then why not?

We had a 2012-35k, don't think you can beat the Bounder for the price point. Took the Bounder in for it's first service and saw the DP Discovery...here we are. A wise forum member said once, buy your last motorhome first..

If you like it, the DW likes it, you have checked it out for issues and the price is right you should go for it.

Every day you procrastinate is a day less you have it.

Had our 2011 Bounder 35H for a year now, and have been full timing in it since June. Plenty of room and amenities. No Issues. Love the "Wild" paint scheme.
Pic at left is our old Fleetwood.

we have a 35k which is basically the same with a flipped layout. It's a great coach. Lots of bells an whistles and very roomy..

I would have gone with the 36E if they had it in the color I wanted on the outside.

You wont be disappointed.

We have a 2012 35k. Really do like it. Love that there are two bathrooms. Love the fireplace. Love the L shape couch, living room floor plan. I think you will be pleased, if you like the floor plan.

Being new to the iRV2 website I am still trying to understand all the acronyms... DW?

Thanks

Designated Wife I think.

We bought our 36E in July and went up to Spokane, Washington for a couple of weeks. In Wyoming we ran into a wind and rain storm, very nasty, and the coach did just fine. A little wiggly with 40-50 mph crosswind, but manageable.
Plenty of power, smooth and very comfortable.

We love it!
