  1. clyde,,my husband & i also just purchased a 2007 fleetwood expedition ,, we have the same issue,, we also incountered that the mileage was not the correct mileage ,,, it does work… so now we’re not sure what the mileage truely is.. very dissappointed with the dealer.because we mislead..

  2. i just purchased a 2004 fleetwood expidition and realized that all the windows are fogged.i find it is very dangerous driving. sometimes you cannot see in the mirrors. after reading all the comments i am not so sure i should have bought a fleetwood product.i am going to purchase new one in the near future but i dont think it will be a fleetwood if they cannot stand behind their product any better than that.

  3. We have a 2006 Discovery in which all the double pane windows are fogged. It creates a glare in the mirrors in which I am seeing the interior of the coach. This is very dangerous and I don’t understand why this wouldn’t be cause for a safety recall..

  4. Hi,
    We bought a 2007 fleetwood bounder 2 years ago, used with 7,000 on it… Within the first month we found two cracks about the wheelwell on the passenger side.. We took it back to the dealer and they sent pictures in to fleetwood. We were told that anything under the belt were not covered under warrenty…At that time we were having problems with the floor making a loud noise when we walked on it…that was covered..2 months later we got our rig back..the floor is quieter now but u can c were they had to cut it?? I noticed on our last trip that the door above my seat looked strange…it was the whole entertainment center above the driver seats is coming down from the ceiling??? I called and it is not covered under warrenty??? I can understand the steps,the faucets, the toilet and even the leak in the shower but the darn cabinets are coming down!!! please help us!!! any help would be great…we are new to rving and not sure who to turn to??? frank

  5. I have a 2004 Pace Arrow with 12000 miles on it. The windows started fogging after I had it for about 1.5 years and had 5500 miles on it. Fleetwood would not do anything about it. Finally they all are fogged after five years and you can no longer see the mirrors. I am having them fixed by replacing most of the glass and resealing. It will cost $5,000. I would never recommend a fleetwood product or buy one myself again.

  6. I have a 2007 Fleetwood Expedition purchased in March of 2007,I had the drivers window replaced last November because it was fogging up, at Lazy Days RV in Florida at the price of $400.00 and now I have 5 more window in the main cabin of the MH fogging. I have been told by the dealer where I purchased it that the warranty was held by the old Fleetwood,and the NEW Fleetwood would not recognize it. I don’t know what i’m going to do at this point, Maybe new windows would be cheaper that fixing the old……………………………………………..

  7. I also have a 2004 Fleetwood Pace Arrow 36″ and my windows are also fogged because of a bad seal.

    Anyone else ?? Remedies or suggestions? How about single pane windows/

  8. I also have a 96-Discovery diesel on Freightlliner chassis. I can not see thru the window on the drivers side very well either. This is a safety issue which I wish we would not have to pay for, but before summer, I plan on having some type of single pane installed.

    Mine also has major handling problems. I have found that the suspension latteral control arms from side frame to the axle on front and back were manufactured with a plastic bushing, and the permant lube has attacked the plastic which is mostly gone. I suppose all chassis manufactured with these links have the same problem. I have’nt yet contacted the dealer. But unless you’re talking about a new purchase, the dealer or service personnel act as if we are homeless beggers. I definitely would not have bought another motorhome had I known how hard it is to get professional advise.
    And don’t get me started on cummins. I had to manufacture an exhaust pipe to fit onto the turbo ($20) Freighliner wanted $470.00 and cummins refused to be involved past their turbo.

    I’m just searching around as of now and before summer. Good luck and God Bless You Sir.
