We have had our new coach for about three months now and really love it. We where sold on the bath and half the minute we saw. Took us a while to research it further drive several of them as well as some similar models from other manufacturers. We finally decided it was the one and odered it loaded. Very few "bug" list problems and nothing major of any kind. Our only unresloved issue is a mysterious noise at about 65 MPH with the wind from acertain direction. Dealer is a little stumped but seems to be working on it.

Great pics.Hope she gives you miles of enjoyment.
I get a little noise here and there depending on how strong the wind is when I drive.

From one Bounder owner to another, congratulations on your new rig. I feel you really can't beat the bang for the buck that a Bounder gives you.

Safe travels & enjoy!

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Monte...
Congrats...you should have many years of enjoyment!
Do you have the booth or the free standing dining table? (The two different tables have me confused... )

Monte, welcome to the Bounder family. Betty and I had to order the credenza and free standing table for our 35e because all of the dealers seem to order the booth. Whichever pictures represent the interior of your new Bounder, you have a lovely new home. Make sure check out local BOA and BU chapters in your area and enjoy the new ride.

Monte, I forgot to address the noise issue. At certain speeds and wind directions I too get some strange noises. Sometimes it seems to come from the upper part of the windshied and at other times the sound is from around the grill area. After numerous inspections of our unit, it does not appear anything is flapping in the wind or falling off.

Thanks for all the great replies. Also sorry, included one of the pictures of the first unit we test drove. We do have the free standing table. A feature my wife has alway liked and we have had in couple of travel trailers. She believe it makes it more "homey".

About your noise. I too had a rattle when we first took the unit home and I was not exactly sure where it was coming from other than the front. I called my dealer and he asked about the power shade. I was a bit confused but he explained, he had seen several cases when the shade was put in the full up position the spring loaded arms rattled. He suggested to try lowring it a couple of inches. I did, problem solved.

The noise we are experiencing now seems to be something that vibrates or hums during certain wind conditions and speed. The speed is usually 65 and it is a when wind quarters across the nose. If I pull closer to a large truck the noise goes away. If the wind changes or we change directions it goes away. Because it is not easy to make it happen the dealer is having a hard time chasing it down. I have also been trying a couple things. I have more tightly bundled all the wire harnes away from metal plates and I think I am going to brace a couple of metal plates that come down from the firewall in front of the tires that seem like they could vibrate. The dealer says he is more thatn willing to fix any issue that may be causing it but so far after about 12 test rides he has not been able to get it to happen. They are being very patient and I beleive together we will track it down and solve it. Other than that we have had no problems and we love the layout. We have also receive several compliments on the paint job. The other thing that I appreciated is the attention to detail and the overall fit and finish which seems to be on par with many of the more expensive units we viewed.
