Fleetwood Terra

Just curious but are there any Fleetwood Terra owners on this site? There seems to be every other motor home owner with questions and concerns but no Terra's.

We have a 2007 Terra LX 34N. Bought last year with 20k miles. Now has 32k. Pulled couch and dining booth out, replaced with table, 2 chairs, and 2 lazyboys. New carpet in bedroom, new wood floor in living area and kitchen. Linoleum still in bath. LED lights in most fixtures. F53 chassis, new tires last year. Leaving this weekend for 10 week trip to Oregon and Washington. Texas summer too hot.
Having a minor issue with starting. Not sure if battery or something else. I have replaced starter relay and starter ground relay. Cleaned terminals. Hope that solves problem.

Thanks so much for your response.

Sure hope you have a safe and wonderful trip. I agree Texas summers can be brutal. However, sometimes the summers on the Or. and Wa coasts can be on the chilly side.

Sounds as if you've done a good many things to your coach to make it more "you". That's great!!!!

We just returned from a 6,900+ mile trip to Maryland to watch the grandson graduate from the naval academy. Sure wish we could have taken the 10 weeks you are planning. Instead with did it all in 3 weeks. Perhaps next year I'll go to the east coast and take longer, to be able to see more.

Again Safe Travels!

2008 Terra 33L. I have also noticed that Terras seem kind of scarce. Whenever I'm on the road, I'm checking out the other coaches. In the 5+ years I've had mine, I've seen only two others while traveling.

Mine has given me my share of headaches, but they're not because of the particular model. I've experienced the same sort of problems that occur with all motor homes. I chose the Terra for the floor plan. We most always have someone traveling with us, so the dual entry bath was a big plus. All meals are prepared outside, so the kitchen being immediately inside the door was important, and I'm really happy with how much basement storage I have.

We're pulling out Friday afternoon, NW Florida to central NY for a week. I'm looking forward to testing out the new Koni FSD shocks on the front.

We purchased a new 2007 Terra LX 32K in february of 2007. It is on a W20 workhorse chassis w 8.1/Allison.
We have put 24K miles on it. Have had only minor issues so far...all of which I have been able to fix without much hassle. Had the brake caliper recall done. We added HD TV's, an Extenda stay propane system and a city water fill valve system. Really happy with it so far.

GB76087......I really like your updates. I would love to do that to mine someday. Can you tell me more about the conversion and the flooring update. By the way we share the same paint scheme.....which my wife and I love.

The mod was really not that difficult. More money than I anticipated, but what the heck. I tore out the couch and the dinette. Put them both on Craigslist, sold them the same day. After I got the dining booth out there was a little touchup work to do. Electrical box to mount, wood trim added to cover some of the holes, mostly cosmetic stuff. The existing linoleum and carpet pulled out easy. The hard part was pulling all the staples out of the floor. I removed the two captain chairs so I could work up under the dash. We took the doghouse out, applied new insulation under it, then it was recovered when the floor was redone.
Fortunately for us, there is a gentleman in our town who installs flooring in motorhomes(https://groups.yahoo.com/group/ernie...elingandrepair). He is normally booked up several months in advance, but as I was monitoring his blog, he had a cancellation. I booked him and began the tear out. I took the MH to him as soon as I had it cleaned out. We then went and picked out the carpet and the hardwood flooring.The flooring is Bruce Engineered Flooring and was glued down. Ernie doesn't do floating floors.
If I can provide any more tips or suggestions let me know.
