    Hello we're a family of 6 and 3 dogs from S. California, we just picked up an 07 Fleetwood in really good condition. Took it out for a 2 night trip and love it already. We went out without the kids to get the trailer setup just how we want it. I actually couldn't believe how much unused space we had afterwards, I thought space would be tight going in. We will definitely be camping a lot more.
    We were amazed at just how quickly we were able to break camp and unload when we got home. Having everything stored in the trailer is the way to go!
    I forgot to get pics with it popped up. Our first upgrades are going to be a bigger battery/box and a tool storage box next to the propane. Probably going to put the storage box at an angle to for maximum size.

    Congrats! We also have a 2007 Fleetwood Sun Valley. It's a great layout!

    Looks like your Jack Stand (the thing you crank up to change the height of the trailer coupling to the hitch) is tilted.

    We had to replace the snap ring / retaining ring with a new one once. Got a new one at the dealer but etrailer.com probably has them too. I also added a piece of sheet metal cut to size to take up the slack behind the retaining ring so it was snug.

    Send more pics of the inside!

    Welcome from Arizona! Our friends have a Fleetwood and love it. They let us borrow it once, and we bought a PUP soon after!
