Flair Chassis ???

I'm a brand new member to this forum and would like to know how to tell what chassis I have.
I have a 2005 Fleetwood Flair 33ft motorhome.
Anyone know?

That year and model had both Ford and Chevy/Workhorse chassis options. The easiest way to tell, for me, would be to look at the steering wheel. If it is a rectangular four-spoke style with large center, it is possibly a workhorse. If it has two spokes, it may be a ford. Another way to check is to look at the emission sticker. Hope this helps! Good luck and welcome to the forum.

The Ford steering wheel probably says Ford in the center of the hub. The Ford chassis will have a V10 engine, while the Workhorse has an 8.1L V8.

I just bought the 2007 Fleetwood Flair 33R a few months ago. I really love it. If it has a V10 logo on the left side of the door, you've got the Ford F53 chassis. There is a section on this forum for chassis. It has tons of info for the Ford or GM (workhorse) chassis. There is also a lot of info about the generator you have in your rig. I am finding this forum very helpful in getting to know my rig. Have fun!!

IF the chassis is a Workhorse, the VIN # will begin with : 5B4......., otherwise it is probably a Ford F53 chassis.

...not to sound like an a-hole (because I'm really not), but doesn't anyone ever look at their steering wheel??? Because it seems this question pops up a lot.

Lets do some homework, shall we. I'll help you folks out with it. The 1st pic shows a wheel that says "FORD" on it....so you can safely bet that's because there's Ford stuff connected to it. The 2nd pics is a little harder to see, but it says "Workhorse" (older ones say GMC or Chevrolet on them)..I think ya'll know where I'm going with this.
