It is an entry level coaach. You might want to start reading your post before you hit the post button.


You are right, but in my defence, it was very late last night and I was relaxing after a couple of Vodka martinis. Will correct this AM.

I own a 91 Fleetwood Flair that I picked up N2M last year. Notice that I said I OWN (not drive) meaning that I have the title. Yes it has no slides and even though it is entry level at the time and even today it is a perfect coach for me and my family. I bought it in July and took it out 2 weeks later for a 3000 mile trip to the Midwest in July. We passed many a luxury coach on the side of the road broke down from the heat. We came back from our trip with one problem I ran over a nail and the front tire was low by 5 PSI. We got that patched up and went to the Grand Canyon and had a blast. The Flair has everything we need and I added a Sat dish Two HD TV’s with DVD players for the kids replaced the seatbelts so they are 3 point seatbelts and gave her a good wax and polish. We upgraded to the Flair from a pop-up and we are happy we did. The next rig will be a super C FYI we call our rig Ol’ Faithful or Faith for short she has never let us down…

It all really depends on who you talk to, I have a friend who has a Prevo, he thinks all Monacos are entry level. Go figure.

The 04 Flair has all of the construction of Fleetwoods high end MHs. 1.5" of Styrofoam insulation in the walls and more in the celling. It is not FANCY by any means, but a well constructed MH, and great value. All the appliances and holding tanks, say Bounder on them (hand written in marker pen). The only fault I can give it, is the lack of race ways for electrical and plumbing, of the lack of finding prints for them. Fiesta was the entry level MH for that year, and there was a BIG difference between them. If it is to your liking, and everything works, go for it. Get the best price you can, the Flair is no longer in the lineup, but parts are no problem at all.

Good luck

Who started these labels for motorhomes? "Entry Level" must have been given by the "holier than thou" rich and snobbish crowd. What are they 'entering' into? Are the high and mighty motorhomes exit level because after all those problems it will be the last RV they ever own?
The people with a reasonably priced "camper" should label the 'Rock Star motorhomes' also. Maybe the 'more money than brains motorhome.

Now, is my F-150 pick up truck entry level or exit level?


Fleetwood says that the Flair is entry level, on your truck it depends on the trim level. Cloth seats and rubber mat, and small engine = entry level worker truck.

entry level is subjective.
A clean low cost motorhome is worth more than a dirty ill cared for luxury one.

That being said... anything under $100k sticker could probably be referred to as "entry level".

In 2004 the Flair was below the Bounder, sharing floorplans and feature sets with the Southwind Storm.

But Flair/Storm were not Fleetwood's entry level in 2004, as the Fiesta/Terra twins shared that honor.

For a while in the '90s, Flair (and Storm) were entry level, in the sense that Fleetwood offered no A gassers in a lower price range.

If it fits your needs then it's luxury because it's better then tent camping. Not to offend tent camping but just trying to make a point. I remember when I bought my Country Coach Inspire new in 2004 there were those that said - "oh entry level", while others said "wow, now that is luxury". Why can't entry level be luxury? I never worried what others thought and I don't ask for opinions. I do what I want. So again, if you like the coach - get a fair price and go for it!

I have a 94 flair. Once you figure out the p-30 chassis (04 im sure does not have that) it is a decent motorhome. We use ours for summer vacations and weekend trips. I also take it hunting a few times a year. It has never failed me. It does what it is supposed to. I would not full time in it nor would I snowbird in it. I tow a jeep or a boat behind it and it does what we need it to. I will retire in a few years and will purchase a larger diesel pusher.
