Very nice rig you have! Looks like you will need a longer driveway now. Great floorplan especially for a family. I know you will have a very Merry Christmas this year!

Super steer, is the product line. The bell crank is a bearing device vs FL steering crank , non bearing, allowing the driver so to speak, power steering. Easy to drive and lot less fatigue over the road. Do yourself a favor and go to Henderson Drivline web site the upgrades for aftermarket are all on video, very helpful.

Very nice!...Congrats!...

BTW - isn't it funny how big they look when you get them home and parked in your driveway or front of the house?

Has anyone ever gotten their rig home and said "gee honey, I thought it was bigger than that".....

oh man, did I just say that?....

Good question, when I was looking last year I too had difficulty nailing down certain info. What I found was the pecking order could change from year to year and that in some year models the Providence Discovery and Excursion were almost identical, much like GMC and Chevy. Expeditions seemed to run a little cheaper but that usually was due to size and HP.

Bottom line is check NADA on each year and model.
We have a 08 Discovery and love it!

A number of places spring to mind: NADA RV is a good source, bearing in mind that about 75% of Avg Retail is the point to which the market gravitates. The NADA site is a little clunky: in the case of Fleetwood, use the model name to search in lieu of manufacturer.

RVWeb is another good place, with info about the entire range of offerings, for various years.

Then, there are endless online sources. I like to do virtual tours on YouTube.

Nothing beats going to a large dealer and walking through rigs, however.

We cut our teeth on a 2005 Excursion, and I still believe a 5-10 year old Fleetwood is a great value, in the DP world. Smart money can still dig up a pristine rig that has never been lived in, stored indoors, with great maintenance, for around $30K. What you have, at the end of the day, is a rig that has the same basic amenities of one costing up to 20 times as much.

Welcome to Fleetwood and hope you enjoy yours as we enjoy ours. They made a good motorhome in 1982 and they still are.
Happy Travels, Tim
