Weight on a 1987 Fleetwood Bounder???

I have a 34 foot Fleetwood Bounder. 1987. Model ca34. It's the one with 2 doors. The bedroom door and the main entry door. Anyone know the vehicle weight???? I'm guessing it probably weighs between 15,000 to 20,000 pounds? That's just my guess. This thing is huge, practically a bus with 19 inch tires. Click image for larger version

There should be a vehicle ID tag (chassis info) on the wall near the driver's seat or near the entrance door. This one is usually riveted on. There may also be a tag in a closet stating the motorhome specs. This one is often glued on & may have come off. The chassis tag will tell you make, model, serial number, gross axle weights, and gross vehicle weight (GVW). It probably has a GVW of 18000#. It will be on either a GM or John Deere chassis. The GM used a GM 454 engine. The JD used a Ford 460 engine. If it is a JD, I can send you a chassis manual for it.

You should definitely find a place to weigh it. All 4 corners preferably, that way you can determine proper tire inflation pressures.
As a best guess, I would say your motorhome weighs between 15K and 16K lbs. For a comparison, my coach is longer, has a tag axle and a large slide and weighs 18K.

x2 on weighing it! It's good info to have, helpful to lookup correct air pressure and know where to load heavy items. The sticker will only give maximum load capacity and quite often tire pressure recommendation is inaccurate on the body builders sticker.

Howdy, brudder! We got the same beastie. On mine, there is a plate attached to the wall just left of my left knee in the driver seat. It's 14,nnn pounds more or less, if I remember. Yours seems to have slightly different side stripes from mine, other than that they look pretty similar...except for my lack of rear hub caps..
