Looking at buying a Fleetwood Flair-30' with a V-10 -In 2000 did they have enough HP--getting away from autopark brake and rusting under carriage-anybody have a Flair????--Good little MH from what I,ve looked at---rich
Rich, V10 indicates you are looking at a Ford F53 chassis under that Flair. @ 310 HP, you should not want for power. The auto-park system was a Chevy/Workhorse thing. Rusting under carriage is usually from being in salt air on the coasts. The Flair is entry level in that year. Same basic coach and chassis as other Fleetwood models, just lesser appointments.
I have a 2000 Flair 32' now for 12 years. No problems except the usual items that go wrong as time goes on. If maintance was done properly there should be no issues. Good strong engine. I also tow a Saturn with no problem. Been all over the lower 48. In 07 I took a trip from In. to Vancouver BC and back, 95Deg. all the way, no issues going through the mountains. CalD
