New Rig & new for us - 08 Fleetwood Discovery

We started looking at used rigs. This new Discovery came along and we couldn't pass it up. Has everything we were looking for in a coach and then some.



To see additional photos go here and click on "Photo Gallery".

Took it on a maiden voyage last weekend and all went well. Everything worked like it should except those that I didn't know how to operate.

Let us know how you like the full wall slide. DH is very enamored with them as they seem to make the coach very spacious. I'm still a bit skeptical about something that big being moveable & remaining trouble free over the long term.

All that aside, your coach is a beautiful one. Enjoy your travels & welcome to iRV2 & the Fleetwood Family.

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

I was skeptical also. After seeing that Fleetwood has been mfg. full wall slides for a while I will (hopefully) assume they have all the problems solved.

Yes it does make the coach spacious. Thats one of the things that sold us on this rig.

Great Coach and a very nice purchase. I noticed in your photo's that when you backed in at the Resort in TX you had little to no space for your chairs on the concrete and realized you hadn't yet learned another trick that Class A drivers live by.

I will say most Campgrounds [dad taught me never say all] sites are layed out so the concrete pads left edge [when backing in] is far enough away from the hookups [taking in the consideration of slides] that you can put the tires almost on the edge.

This will give you an abundance of more space for relaxing once your setup.

We love having our Class A Bounder and hope to one of these days move up to the Discovery, it's a great coach made by a great manufacturer.
