My wife and I enjoy this coach. Although we are considering another floor plan if you need to sleep 6 this is the coach for you.

The quality is very good although minor defects have been observed. Spring pushing out on the side of the sofa and cracked tile in rear hallway. Short in rear camera difficult to track down and fix. Still have not figured out how to have volume on the GPS without volume on the radio. Small piece of exterior trim fell off slide corner while driving. Fleetwood was very quick to paint to match and replace at dealer (AAA rating for service at dealer in Richmond, Va). Drivability is excellent although I would prefer less road noise at higher speeds. Towing the dolly with car handles very well and has pulled the car around barriers to my surprise when in a very tight spot!

We currently have approximately 7500 miles on her and so far only minor things needing adjustment or repair. Fuel usage is IMO better than what would be expected (360hp). Overall I would highly recommend Fleetwood for purchase.

This was our second Class A motorhome and huge upgrade over the first one (2000 Allegro Bus). It handles well on the road, even when pulling my full sized GMC Sierra pickup. It took about 12 hours of driving to get comfortable with the size and length (65' with truck in tow). After that it has not been a problem, although I still get white knuckles in construction zones where the lanes are narrowed and bordered with concrete barriers. It is virtually unaffected when we are passed by an 18 wheeler.

We have pulled the pickup over 12,000 ft peaks in Colorado with no problem other than slowing down a little. The exhaust brake is a huge benefit when going down from these summits.

It is a great place to stay when set up at an RV site. The water heater serves as a continuous water heater when using both gas and electric together. Plenty of room, and the bed is comfortable with separate air controls for each side. The kitchen is quite functional. We usually fix breakfast and lunch in the RV and eat dinner at a local restaurant.

There is plenty of storage both inside and out. The only reason we don't take the kitchen sink is that the RV already has one.

Water tanks are quite large and suitable for dry camping for several days at a time. The macerator pump makes black water disposal an easy, quick, and clean operation.

We have had very few maintenance issues with this RV. Most have been minor and easy to repair.

I am very please with this Fleetwood Expedition motorhome.

We purchased the Expedition 38K new in March 2016 to drive to Alaska for summer. There were 8 items the dealer was to repair upon final walk thru which took until late May when they released it to us. From Day 1 this RV is one major lemon!!

We had to return the RV to the factory in March of 2017 for repairs that would meet our satisfaction. We had 23 pages of repair items as follows:

Standing water in the inverter box from road spray and rain. Rubber seals around slides did not seal. Hood on driver side out of alignment. Large slide on driver side did not fit flush on retraction. Refrigerator did not have door latch. Windshield leaks which caused dash padding to soak up water. Dash padding tacks were coming out. No Sound barrier between back of TV and bathroom wall (design flaw). Rear bathroom sink did not drain. Shower did not drain. Shower door installed upside down. Large bathroom sink cabinet doors were warped. Trim fell off in small bathroom. Kitchen sink didn't drain. Road dust comes in under rear bathroom sink cabinet. So bad that in construction areas we had to wear masks. Pieces of trim behind driver fell off. Water pump ran constantly. Carpet binding was coming off. Headboard fell off. Bedroom valences were not aligned correctly. Water leak under kitchen sink baseboard. Trap and piping fell off from under the kitchen sink. Trim over refrigerator fell off. When using stove it scorched counter top. Microwave does not vent to outside - vents to roof and smoke detector (design flaw. Kitchen faucet leaks. Cabinet door over driver fell off onto driver while driving down interstate. Drawer under washer was so warped it would not shut. Washer/Dryer cabinet drawers are warped and don't close. The large slide roof had major water leaks so cabinet were warped and headliner had been soaked and now has mold and mildew. Dinette table not centered correctly. Table does not turn. Crack in fiberglass wall under bedroom slide. Paint blistering on large slide and lower wall due to slide rubbing and catching. Trim on outside of bathroom was broken off. Locks on outside compartments were broken. Bedroom wall on shower side was bowed and trim falling off. Washer and Dryer were not installed square and causing pressure on cabinet wall and door. Washer had major water leak. Metal plate behind driver seat was buckled and lifting. Water heater did not work on electric. Drawers under dinette did not latch. Road dust came in around bedroom slide. Window valences in large slide had been soaked by water from roof leaking. Wallpaper had water bubbles from leaking roof. Headliner had been soaked. Trim has been soaked and was split and warped. Road dust comes in around large slide. When large slide is retracted road spray and rain comes in at bottom corners. Large slide rollers broke floor tiles. Awnings on all three slide are so loose that they collect water in large pockets. Rear jack retracted independently causing coach to drop. Jacks had loud popping noises when extending and retracting. Driver side slide catches on underneath compartments when in motion. Metal was broken off of top inside corner of large slide. Passenger seat leans to left.

This coach was driven back to the factory in March and was released to us the end of April.

We left in May for another vacation to Alaska with the intent to stay until October.

Needless to say that vacation was cut short because of problems with the RV that were suppose to be fixed and new issues.

They have again asked us to drive the coach out to the Indiana factory. I will also say that there has been no offer to offset any travel costs. Basically, if you want it fixed then bring it to the factory or live with it.

Items for this go round are:

There is still an enormous amount of dust coming in under the rear bathroom cabinet. The washer and Dryer do not work. The washer/dryer cabinet doors are still warped and do not shut. The headboard fell off. The bedroom window valences were not aligned. There is no hot water in kitchen. The kitchen faucet still leaks. The water pump runs constantly. There is still a water leak under the baseboard of the kitchen cabinet. The large slide no longer fits flush when retracted. Road dust comes in around the large slide. The windshield leaks in the same spot. The tacks on the dashboard are popping up again. The hood on driver side is out of alignment again. The dinette was moved but too far the other direction and can't lower past cushions.

Now the roof on the kitchen slide leaks. The trim is warped and split. The inside of the cabinets, cabinets and headliner have all been wet and collected water. Water pools on top of the kitchen slide and when moving pours down on passenger seat. The bedroom slide roof leaks. After a wet foam mattress we keep plastic bags taped to the roof. The cabinets and headliner have collected water. Trim is warped and split. The kitchen fan does not work. The refrigerator was removed and when reinstalled was not plugged in. It is now missing the shelf rail in the freezer. The TV antenna knob just fell off so antenna is non operational.

We have had 5 RVs prior to this one so were expecting some minor problems. But these problems go way beyond minor. Not one of our other RVs ever had a leaking roof but have leaking roofs on all three slide. The canvas awnings serve no purpose.

There is no Quality of Workmanship or Craftmanship and certainly no pride in producing their product. Really, not to think to plug the fridge back in. What really frosted me was the service manager insisted and assured us that the fridge was working when it left the factory. $800 later after trying the problem the repair shop checked the plug.

Would we purchase another Fleetwood product or would we recommend Fleetwood to others. NO. We show dogs and are frequently asked at the shows and in the campgrounds about our RV and I am delighted to start with the list above.

I have sent two letters to the Fleetwood VP detailing the issues with this coach and not a word back other than a lady calling we had to bring it back to the factory.

At this point I just want to get rid of this RV. Two miserable vacations cut short and something we can't use the majority of the time. Lemon, lemon, lemon and just a very poor product from Fleetwood.

The diesel gets better mileage than gas. It is a comfortable ride and a comfortable place for travel and living. There is a lot of storage space and moving around inside. The seating is leather and the driver and passenger seats are recliners.

After towing 2 different pop-up tent trailers, then 2 different travel trailers, we moved up to a 43'Beaver Patriot Thunder. One huge headache from day 1. After 3 years, I couldn't wait to rid myself of that lemon! This Fleetwood Expedition has been an extremely pleasing experience from day one.
Sure, we had new coach issues, as everyone does. But the overall quality of the coach and the support from Fleetwood has been truly superior. There are some comments I should make though.
I didn't like the standard, silly, useless L-shaped couch. Totally unacceptable for watching TV at mid-coach. So I replaced it with a dual over-stuffed recliner set. Soooooo much better! And I don't know who wired the stereo/satellite system initially, but we had to have that nearly completely replaced... under warranty, of course.
But it handles well, has great appliances (including the washer/dryer and has been just wonderful for me and my wife as full-timers. Too bad they stopped making the Expedition. Great coach! Buy a used one if you can.

Great floor plan with 2 bathrooms. This is definitely for a couple, there isn't a lot of room to sit or ride in the motor-home while traveling, plus only sleeps 4 people in all.

We enjoy the unit. Very roomy for the two of us, however when the temperature gets below 32 degrees F, we have no heat! The heat pump will not work below 36 degrees and the propane freezes off at 32 degrees. Not a good unit for traveling when the temperature gets cold.

This has been a fantastic home away from home, can't say enough positive things about it. We've towed a 5k lb vehicle and it drives the same with or without, awesome.

This unit allowed us to have the big bus feel without the big bus price, thanks Fleetwood.

The expedition offers tons of storage, and a great floor plan. Excellent for towing boats, box trailers (for all your toys). The diesel with the Allison transmission makes it a breeze to tow up those hills.

We've lived full time in this RV for over 9 years. Except for window seals, it has been mostly above average. No mechanical problems & we travel often.
