Pace Arrow 37C

Fleetwood claims the latest iteration of its long-running Pace Arrow nameplate is designed
to mimic a modern diesel-pusher in appearance, room and features. Given the sloping front
end, 22.5-inch wheels, seven-foot-high ceilings and overall height of nearly 13 feet, we’d
suggest appearances are not deceiving. Chris Braun, senior vice-president of Fleetwood,
said, “Our customers expressed a desire for a more luxurious and impressive coach without
the additional costs associated with a diesel engine and chassis – we delivered with the
new Pace Arrow.” This 37C model is the top of five floorplans between 35 and 37 feet, each
with two or three slideouts, and its base price fits right in with other high-end Class A
gas-powered coaches. The Pace Arrow 37C is built on a long-wheelbase Workhorse W22 chassis
with big-block power. Adding five occupants, freshwater and LP-gas gives a working payload
of about 900 pounds with two tons left over for the dinghy or toy trailer. The 37C
floorplan uses a bedroom slide with queen bed, aft wardrobe and a pocket door with
full-time access because the bath is an all-in-one curbside room. Two large windows in the
hallway are standard and a driver’s door provides an entry option. The convertible couch
and free-standing dining table are in the flush-floor streetside slide, with the galley –
including the 12-cubic foot refrigerator with icemaker – in the opposing slide. Four color
schemes and three wood selections are offered. Listed among the pages of standard equipment
are a 27-inch flat-screen television up front, convection/microwave, coffeemaker, porcelain
toilet, ultraleather furniture, cedar-lined wardrobe, stainless galley sinks and a power
driver’s seat. Outside you’ll find dual roof airs, a 5.5 kW Onan AC generator, automatic
hydraulic levelers, powered awning, heated tanks and compartments, heated mirrors, a
rear-view camera and Vacu-bonded walls and floors with a Royal Tuff-Ply roof. Upgrades
include a washer/dryer on most plans, a fixed dinette with solid wood table and a King Dome
auto-seek satellite dish. Fleetwood envisions the Pace Arrow used more as a long weekender
or short-vacation unit for baby-boomers or grandparents and associated juveniles – someone
who can’t justify the cost of a diesel-pusher, but wants the features and room. Fleetwood

  1. Great right up on the 37c, has it performed up to the standard expected? After 18 yrs, are they still performing well when properly maintained? Can you give me a price on today’s market for the 2004 37C in very good condition?
