I recently purchased a 2003 Fleetwood Flair with the Triton V10 6.8 engine. I got very lucky it is like new inside and in great shape outside. When poking around in the forward opening I noticed that the transmission fluid dipstick is missing. So at this point my only option is a universal dipstick however I need to know how many quarts of transmission fluid remain in the converter prior to marking the full point on my Universal Transmission fluid dipstick.
Does anybody know what Ford Chassis this 2003 Flair is built on or what transmission it has or if nothing else can direct me to the right place to find out. I guess I could contact Fleetwood with a serial number and they can give me that information. Thanks for any help and if you can provide
Hi and welcome.  It may be best to post your query in the relevant message board (but only in one) to ensure you get a response. 

Glad to have you here, good luck with your new RV, hope it gives you many happy memories.
In 2003 the Flair was available on either Ford or Workhorse chassis. You have the Ford V10, so it's the Ford F53 stripped motorhome chassis with the Ford 4R100 transmission.  Fleetwood can't help with that, but any Ford dealer should be able to obtain the part (if it is still available).

You might like to have a copy of the 2003 Flair sales brochure - some helpful info there. Download it at https://www.fleetwoodrv.com/resources/media/user/1470941758_brc_pdf.pdf
You can also download the Ford F53 owner manual for 2003:  http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/03motog1e.pdf
Thanks for the info I've already found out from both Ford dealers and forced division of motorhomes that the part is no longer available
