rhuff, if your '01 has a side radiator, it may be identical to my '02. My intake air filter is located above the engine, and (looking forward from the rear hatch) behind the coolant expansion tank. A round, cylindrical thing a bit smaller than a 5 gal bucket. Access in my MH is through the removable floor of the bedroom closet. (two lag screws under the carpet through the floor into a frame member) Removal/install is a bit cumbersome but not particularly difficult. There are 4 air hose clamps to remove, and two big band clamps around the filter case to release. Have a big tough plastic trash bag ready for the whole assembly. Take it outside to remove/change the old element, or there'll be dust all over your bedroom. Someone will be aggravated.
