I am looking into buying a 2002 Fleetwood Revolution. Does anyone have any experience with this coach? Any recommendations on what to look at when previewing the coach?

Reliability?

Thank You in Advance.

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

Do you know what chassis it has? What engine? How many miles?

I have a 2003 Revolution with a 350 Cummins and Allison Trans I bought it 18 mos. ago on Ebay. It has been a great coach.
I added Tires and replaced 1 roof air unit. it had 42000 miles on it when I bought it. We discovered no real problems with the
coach other than the skylight over the shower is like a spotlight in the bedroom on most mornings. If it fits your budget and
your needs, Buy it!

A good solid engine, transmission, chassis. Here are some detail on it: http://freightlinerc...XC0105-2002.pdf

Check the age of the tires-- they are likely near the end of their serviceable life if not already replaced-- even if the tread is in good shape. The last 4 digits of the number molded into one sidewall of each tire beginning with DOT indicates the WEEK and YEAR the tires were made. If original, they will be close to 10 years old.

Not sure I agree. 28,000 miles in 9 years says it may have sat for a long time/very long time without use. Far harder on machinery than, say 10,000 miles a year. Remember, we are talking about a diesel powered coach here.

It is a Freightliner chassis with a Cummins 330 with 51,000 miles.

 

I did notice the air ride seemed to inflate slow and awning arm n strap are broken.

 

It has been stored outside but seems in decent shape. 

 

Only asking $52000-- needs tires though.

Welcome to the forum.

 

Sounds like a good deal.

 

Did they have any maintenance records?

 

You might want to just approach it like nothing has been done for maintained in a long time. The air bag issue may be from not being used or might be a leak. Try this when you have it aired up shut off the engine and see how long it takes to leak down. If it leaks down quickly you problem have a leak.
