Fleetwood RVs

Since Fleetwood made motorhomes and travel trailers I thought we could use use this group for all of them--Southwind, Bounder, Pace Arrow, Terry, Resort, Pegasus, and all the others instead of having a group for each one.See More

1970 Aristocrat STL - sway

For the longest time I have had problems with my trailer not being stable at hi-way speeds. Thought the problem was in the trailer. But no the problem was my tow vehicle. Over the years the front end became worn out. I had the front end re-built and added stabilisers front and rear. Cost about $300 dollars. My tow vehicle is a 86 Chevy Suburban 3/4 ton with a 454.

My question is this, we are looking at a 69 American Eagle conversion coach, asking price is $75,000, 42 footer and very clean on the inside outside looks great also. Waiting for more info on engine, trans etc etc. Does anybody have more info on this rig or clubs - anything would help. Thank - You.

Well...I've been doing lots of homework trying to find out more about my Aristocrat motor home. According to the American Clipper owners web site, there were only three Clippers built in 1973. The web site says all early Clippers were on Dodge chassis. Since mine is a Chevy chassis, I'm still stumped. Also, my coach looks nothing like any of the Clipper photos I've seen. My coach has all the same interior decor and materials that I'm seeing in the 72-73 bumper-pulled trailers. I'm beginning to think that I have a very rare Aristocrat motor home that was built before the American Clipper line was started. I think perhaps it was a late '72 model year because the title says '73. Maybe it was a prototype or perhaps special ordered by someone at he time. The American Clipper web site says production began in 73. If anyone can shed light on this...I'd be very grateful!!

Hey Duane - I have a 1973 Aristocrat based on a Chevy van chassis. I've seen quite a few trailers but can't find anyone else who has an Aristocrat motorhome like mine. I'm wondering how many were made and what years they were made. If you have any old literature or manufacturer contact info to share...I would be very grateful. Thanks.  -Scott

Hey, Duane thanks for the good words. We sure enjoy it and the folks here who have helped us so much... we use to break down a lot, that is our RVs did and folks here got us going, usually via email when we were up the back side of nowhere on some mountain.
Looking forward to your future posts and camping photos and tips!

Duane,
Two other ideas for you to check:
A. The 3/4 ton Chevy rides nice and high, and so does the hitch.
If the hitch of your bumper pull and your Suburban are not exactly level, i.e.
trailer hitch two inches higher than a level trailer hitch, or if the hitch, when attached is lower - rear end squat - on your Suburban due to the trailer hitch weight (I think this is doubtful since it's 3/4 ton) your trailer will fishtail.

B. Axles and wheels off center. If your axel is not aligned properly with both ends of the axel being exactly the same distance from the front of the frame or if the axel is misaligned from left to right your trailer will fishtail.
This is easy to check. Just get a metal carpenters tape, climb under the trailer and measure front to rear at the exact same point on each side of the axel. Then measure left to right. You might be surprised. Sometimes the axel is off by as much as several inches; usually caused by some previous owner re-arching the springs or replacing a broken spring and not centering the axel.

If the fishtailing is really noticeable and not just a little wobble back and forth when you change lanes, I would really be concerned sinced that's what totalled our suv and trailer a few months back. Maybe play it safe and do keep speed down until you find the solution.

I'll be interested to learn the solution.
