Minor that was the coach's fault. Major that was our fault. It doesn't help that a boulder in Colorado jumped out in front of us.
Major mods of our choosing.

15 Discovery

I'm always on the lookout for potential problems. 1 1/2 Yr old Fleetwood Discovery. Fixed 122 Mfger screwups. No major. Another 65 improvements.
3rd Fleetwood, no majors. If I couldn't fix most anything I would not have a RV, especially a diesel.

We've had issues and i've certainly complained about our Workhorse chassis. I've had to remedy sticking brake calipers, replace spark plugs and wires (2x), build an air vent to cool engine manifold, rebuild starter, and replace front spring air bags. Adding these up, the average cost comes out to under $200 a year.

Glad you didn't want routine maintenance type stuff as all that would put me at an average over the $500 mark.

Our 30 year old needed a new motor. MAJOR expense, and was going to need tires soon. Traded it infor a much newer model that we've only had since June. Our only expense so far is fuses.

I have a 2004 and just had to have the high pressure pump and the injectors replaced. Cost just under $6K. Thank goodness I purchased an extended warrantee.


Replaced the motor to the large slide for just over $1K. Warrantee covered it.
Replaced one air bag. Think it was about $600. Warrantee covered it.

Makes a good case to have an extended service contract! Thanks for the re-

2009 Winnebago 40 DP that I use on a limited basis. Couple trips a year. After 3 years of owing this rig I average $1000 year in repairs including air conditioning, rear wheel seal, air leak at gauge, backup camera (loose wire), basement compartment catch, and then the regular stuff like tires and oil changes add a few $1000 more.

When ever someone says they are thinking about buying a MH I tell them the cost of the coach is just the ticket to enter this great and wonderful way of life.
