Just to clarify a bit; the old Fleetwood did indeed go bankrupt, however they were purchased out of bankruptcy and the new Fleetwood is indeed alive and well - and by all accounts doing a wonderful job not only on the new products but offering excellent support on the older products.

I was never a big fan of the old Fleetwood, and yes we once owned one. I have nothing but respect for the new Fleetwood.

You know a tire blowing out and causing damage to your motorhome is something that is covered under your comprehensive insurance. The tire itself is not covered, but the damage it caused is. And a claim on your comprehensive generally does not count against you when it comes time to raise your premiums.

Although Fleetwood is not out of business, National RV is and that is who made my motorhome. People have told me I'd be in trouble if I ever had body damage to my front or end cap because it would cost a forture to have one custom made. I pointed out that I would not be in trouble, my insurance company would be in trouble because they are the one that has to fix it. If somebody has to custom make a part to do so then that's up to the insurance to pay for.

I have ordered a few things from them, was able to get a build sheet, and a few wiring diagrams.

I think you better call your insurance company and give THIS hypothetical to them, and see IF by your contract with them if they have to spend extra money to get a part no longer available. I don't believe they do. When we have repaired RV's and they are out of production and parts no longer available, we only have to get as close as possible per the Insurance company. Doug

We just ordered Fleetwood parts this week. They are very helpful.

I've had luck contacting Fleetwood via their website. I gave them the FIN off my Certificate of Origin, and got the specific coach and chassis wiring diagrams and the actual build sheet for my motorhome
