1st Class A

We just moved from a Lance slide in truck camper to a Class A coach. After some research from iRV2.com we decided to go with a Fleetwood Discovery. I now turn to these forums to learn more about our new coach, thanks for the help iRV.com.

Were going to buy the 32...then after I saw the bunks for the grandkids,we changed our mind. I know that we will enjoy the 4 slideouts rather than the 3. The color changed too. Were getting sunlit sand,now we have Rocky mountain brown. whewwww.Glad the decision is finally over. Now to find a great towing system. (tow bar). Any idea's??

I will not miss loading or unloading the Lance. It got to a point where I just always left it on the truck. I did't take the camper off in 2 years, just to avoid having to putting it back on.

I really like the "setting up" of the class A, I just push a few buttons and within 5 minutes my camp is all set up.

The Lance was was a 45 minute chore between: unhooking the hold downs, leveling, dropping the dinette and openning the the rear tent bed for the kids.

Great looking rig. We've been sooping around the fleetwood line as well. What was the reasoning behind your choice if I may ask?

Floor plan. We looked at several coaches... Birkshire by forest river, Monticeto by Fourwinds, a Coachman gas rig and a lot of others I don't recall all of their names and models. But it was the floor plan of the Fleetwood Discovery that we really liked. Not to mention I got a super buy on the coach, they already had a few 2011's sitting on the lot and they were ready to deal.

We looked at so many coaches they all started to blend together. Bottom line was all of the rigs had a Cummins/Allison combo on either a Frighliner or Spartan chassis so it really came down to the floor plan.

We had 4 things on our list it must have to have: bunk beds, diesel pusher, automatic awnings and auto leveling. Most of the DP's have everything we wanted except bunk beds.

We only found 3 rigs with bunk beds and my wife really liked the floor plan.

We've been out with it twice and have not been disappointed. We've have a short list of little things that need to be corrected but nothing major.

Being my first class A coach I was a little disappointed with the "up hill zoom". I was spoiled by an overpowered Dodge Ram.

Thanks, we look forward to getting out and using the new coach.

Both feet is just the start of it. I still have knots in my stomach. Even though I've already made the 1st payment and it was not all that bad, I'm still having buyers remorse...lol
