We don't own one of those units....But, we have owned about five Fleetwood Trailers and one Fleetwood Motorhome. We found them to be very well built, dependable.. NO problems with them to speak of, ...and what little did need to be fixed under warranty, ...the dealer and Fleetwood fixed fast and cheerfully!!!
Welcome to our Forum....happy to have you join us.. Happy RV buying!!!

Don't know where you are, so it's hard to point you in any direction. All fold-down (commonly called pop-ups in the PUP circles) are relatively the same, so unless you're committed to that particular model, you might want to find a dealer you like who seems genuinely interested in working with you. Often it's more important to be happy with how you're treated than be loyal to a particular make & model. I had a PUP for 2 years & the dealer was a pain to work with -- too far away, not responsive to routine service. When I bought my hybrid I bought from a dealer who's 15 min. from home & he's a sweetheart! I know I probably paid a bit more, but it's worth it in the kind of service I get from him. He's a very small outfit. He's owned the dealership for over 20 years & at present is doing routine service himself. I store the trailer on his lot, and whenever I'm getting ready to go out he makes sure my battery is charged & LP is full. He even pulls the trailer out from its storage space so I don't have to wiggle my way in & hassle over trying to get it hooked up in a small space. Conversely, when I come home I just unhitch & he takes it back to my spot for me. Can't ask for more!

Joella, I am glad you had good results with Fleetwood products. I on the other hand, had nothing but grief from my Fleetwood product. The camper leaked from the time we got it. We had no idea it was leaking until I went in and found a puddle of water in the bathroom. Of course, by that time, it had ruined the wood ceiling, and Fleetwood told me we should have been climbing in an on the roof all the time. ( camper was only 9 months old) so we could catch the leaks. Duh, thought you made a better product. Needless to say, no recommendations for Fleetwood products for me. Sure am glad you had better results than us. Marslet

Happy camping, Marslet

I am really sorry to hear that, Marslet!!! A nine month old unit should be covered under that first year warranty, no matter who's at fault, and no matter who should have climbed up on the roof!!! In fact in less than I year, I'd say it was poorly constructed!!!

Agree with you, a stinking way to treat a customer. It has forever turned us off of Fleetwood products. Although there are some great ones out there, we can't get over the first one. They told us we should have recaulked all the seams at 6 months. Nowhere in the books did it say that or we would have done it. Oh well, water under the bridge and we are happy with our camper now. I agree with you too about it being poorly made. Guess it was just one of those lemons that people every once in a while get. Marslet

Happy camping, Marslet

Sounds like us when we bought the Tropi-Cal from a well known dealership in WA and we had big time leaks on the passenger side upper walls of the motorhome from the Awning not sealed to the motorhome and water was pooling in the walls and warped the cupboards within a month of purchase! We had the motorhome in the shop for over a month and done TWICE before they fixed the problem and half of all my cupboards on that side had to be replaced! Needless to say we did not buy the Alfa from them and warn others not to do business with them because we know their service dept was lacking good workers! I even caught someone wanting to go through the motorhome that was not suppose to be in there! Hence why I hide inside to keep others out when it is in the shop for short stays. One time a service area was going to charge us for longer time than what they performed and I called them on it stating I was IN the motorhome and knew there was noone around me for that period of time! They reduced the bill fast!
