New To RVing

We are new to RVing (Myself and my Wife & our Cat) with a 1990 1/2 Fleet Wood Bounder.
Not sure what 1990 1/2 means but that is what the MSRP said.
Is there anything I should know about this old girl,it has a 460 Ford FI engine in it with a Banks conversion seems to go really good.

Thanks and have a really nice day....

The extra 1/2 might mean it has EFI rather than a carburator. EFI came in just about then on Fords. If that's the case, you really lucked out. The 460s with carburators were the pits, particularly the very late ones. I got stuck with an '85 (long gone, thank goodness).

What Model and length?
My wife and I started with a 90 1/2 34S model. We bought it used, it was 1 ownered with very low miles.
We made a lot of trips in that coach and it served us very well. The one thing I loved about it was the fact it had a back door in the bedroom.
But we moved on and traded it for an 05 Southwind but I'll never forget our Bounder.

Good luck and many happy miles!
