1995 Fleetwood Bounder 35U
« on: November 08, 2017, 10:54:04 AM »
Anyone ever own the 95 Bounder 35U? We think this rig looks like it would suit our needs as an entry level RV. One feature we really like about this rig is the big windows in the living area however I would like to get some feedback on this from other fulltimers. How practical is the big windows from a fulltimers perspective? When I am fully retired we will probably follow the warmer weather since I am not a fan of colder weather however in the meantime we may have to endure some colder weather and I am a little concerned about having a lot of window space in colder weather. Any thoughts?

I full timed it for ten years and one thing I learned is you can't have enough windows in an RV.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Don't worry about the cold getting in. RVs are poorly insulated and have many breaks in the exterior (A/C, fans, vent pipes, etc) that let a lot more cold in that the windows.

I have read folks have used this on their windows during cold spells with good success:

This does allow sunlight to come through. Reflectix is supposed to work well also, but obviously doesn't allow sunlight to come in.

If parked somewhat permanently during cold weather, skirting the bottom of your coach will be a very big help.
