Hello All - Buying Class A this week

Just wanted to say hello to everyone out there. My girlfriend and I have liquidated everything we own and are in the final stages of purchasing a Fleetwood Bounder 39z. We've been shopping for about 5 weeks with the help of a long time diesel pusher owner and the 39z is perfect for us and our budget.
I've already used the forum to research a couple of ideas about domicile and montana LLC's... thank goodness for this forum and the intelligent discussions I have found. Looking forward to participating.

I love all Bounders and would like to know what year you are going to purchase. If it's new you will have a one year bumper to bumper warranty from Fleetwood and a 3-5 year chassis warranty. There are warranties for all appliances and even the roof material so read all documentation and instructions as to operation and warranty info.
Ironing out the wrinkles takes most of the first year and after that, hopefully, smooth sailing for awhile.
I just love the diesel Bounders but chose the gas version due to economic considerations.
I'm excited for you and welcome you to the Fleetwood Bounder iRV2 group,

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Thanks everyone. You are the best. Ive been using the forum so much already. I love the intelligent debates.
As form the bounder. It's a 2001 39z diesel pusher. We are gonna full time with 2 good size dogs and a cat. I think we need the space with those 2 bumpus hounds. 2001 to save on the purchase price. We narrowed it down to the 39z and made a full attack on every Internet resource to locate as many as we could. We settled on this one mainly because the previous owners care about it and it shows. It going through a full diagnostic of all pieces and parts and will be fully inspected, tested and fixed by the time we do our purchase walk through.
The other reason for the bounder is storage. Its a bit more practical than some of the higher end coaches.
Finally we had some fleetwood champions helping us so that was a big factor too.
Pics to come for sure.

We are so happy for you and now you can be called a Bounderite.
Bounder has always given the owner more bang for the buck and you are intelligent enough to know it. Welcome to Fleetwood Bounder Subset on iRV2.
