Just curious.

We have recently acquired a 2005 Fleetwood Southwind 32vs. O.K. I can't just drive a vehicle. Oh, no. I gotta inspect everything and find out all about it. Must be all those years as aircraft mechanic.

So I'm looking for this vent indicated on the tank fill instruction sticker. I open the cargo door and start tracing the lines in and out of the water tank. Then I notice we have two huge fresh water tanks. And right there written with felt tip pen is "Bounder" and a part number. I'm JUST CURIOUS. Why do I have Bounder tanks in my Southwind?

Not real important. But now I'm looking all over for other Bounder parts. Geeze. I'm loosin' it?

Hello again Steve,

Your Southwind was manufactured on an assembly line and probably next to a Pace Arrow, Bounder or Tara/Storm next to that. Many parts are very interchangeable between models, as you have noticed. Your Southwind is just a cosmetically different model of the Bounder.

Thanks General. Just for grins, my ex-friend (joke amongst our group here in the garage) superimposed a couple Southwind and Bounder photos (he is strange that way). It appeared the only difference in the exteriors was the front and rear caps. And the floor plans were very similar. Just one of them factoids to share.

You'll find that most coaches are very much alike inside, only the newer ones differ somewhat inside. Length some times changes the layout. The General is right on.

You got an upgrade! Sorry - being a Bounder owner, I just had to say that.

Just goes to show, we're all the same under the "skin".

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
