Fleetwood Vs Fr3

Hello everyone
My Wife and I are trying to decide between a used Fr3 32DS and a Fleetwood 34j. Both are bunkhouses but have different floor plans. I like the floor plan of the Fleetwood better as it has one super slide on the drivers side leaving room for larger awning. The Fr3 has a fiberglass roof where the Fleetwood has a tpo roof. The thing that worries me is everyone on he seems to like there Fr3ís and seems like the donít have to many major issues. I can find much on the Fleetwood good or bad.

So I guess what Iím asking is are all motorhomes built if similar quality good or bad? Should a person just pick the floor plan and except that there will some issues? Are these coaches considered at the same tier level?

My unit is the fw Storm bunkhouse model.itís lasted well. Weíve put 55,000 miles on it and itís still going strong. It has the basic stuff without all the bells and whistles. It appears the FW model youíre looking at is a Bounder. It is more upscale than the Storm. If it is gas then itís a Ford f-53 platform unless itís older which means it could be GM platform. Both engines and platforms are good with not that many issues. Itís usually the ďhouse or rvĒ stuff that gives you fits. One rule of thumb is go with the layout first that works for you. Good luck with your searches.

We are looking at a Flair 34j. I’m going to look at it this week and unless something is wrong with it I’d say that’s what we will go with.

After several years of research, my wife and I were all set to buy an FR3 30DS... then we looked at our Bounder 33C. You need to look at both coaches in person and then decide for yourself.
