Everybody have a good time?
Any good words to report?
Never have been to this Rally since it is a long ways for me to travel.
So any thoughts would be nice.
Thanks..

Steve,

It is not clear from your above post which rally are you referring to?

Steve,

Approximately 61 coaches (out of the 71 that had registered) attended the 2013 Biennial National Rally near Fort Dodge, IA. Most of those are now in attendance at the Born Free factory rally here in Humboldt, IA. Approximately 125 Born Free owners are at this factory sponsored rally.

Below are photos of the 5 basic models of 2014 coaches being offered. Except for the 25' Triumph, these photos were taken of the 4 units on display at the Born Free factory during their rally.

Thanks, bBill, for posting pics of the new exteriors. I still gotta stick with the last one you posted which looked like the brown tones. Others are too bold for me; guess that is why they have different colors and designs.

Thanks, Bill, for posting the pictures. Is the slideout the 27 foot RSB model? We are really interested in that model. What is the interior like? As soon as my husband (torn and repaired quad tendon) can travel, we will go to Humboldt to see what is new. No more MI winters for us!

Interesting choice of graphics. Not my style, that's for sure.

Chuck,

I believe the slideout option is available on both the 25' and 27' models. For interior photos of the various models go to the factory website and click on the Products button. A direct clickable link to that part of their website is:
http://www.bornfreerv.com/#!products/c24fi

Click on the various models and you should be able to view a selection of interior photos of each model. I believe the choice of the colors of the exterior graphics is also an option.

Also, since Born Free has introduced and is working on their new website, it currently sometimes updates slowly.

Thanks Bill,
Wow... thats a real good turnout.
I didn't realize the number would be so many.
Gives me more incentive to go sometime.

Wonder if anybody has a slide show?
Thanks for pics.
Sure would be nice to have a "slide"... :D

I'd love to see some pics from the campground. It would be cool to see all the BF's lined up.

Can someone comment on how the elections went. Who are the national and regional officers for the next 2 years?

If you go to the new factory website www.bornfreerv.com and click on the rally section there are various pictures currently posted with more to follow. You may even see someone you know.

If you click on an individual photo it will come up bigger and you can advance through them all. We are sorry to have cancelled at the last minute and miss all the fun ( and food!) but we had a chance to sell Golly just before writing another storage check and just before we leave for Norway to spend a couple of months in Rover.
