Thanks for your great news about "Down East" Maine. Glad the storm did not damage your area! All your info is helpful, and we hope to check out some of the parks you mentioned. Columbus Day comes a bit earlier than we had anticipated the closing dates. Guess, frost must start then?

We were in the process of taking our BF to Maine when this storm approached the East Coast, so we have delayed our plans. We were headed to Maine to search for a Summer home, in the Rockport, or Machiasport and nearby areas. We have heard no reports on what problems the storm created in that section...

Had planned to attend and had to cancel. Glad you had good weather for the rally. Wonderful so many could...

I have owned 4 Born Free Motorcoaches...loved each one. My first was a 22 BFT, and I couldn't imagine traveling without a spare tire, so I finally found a dealer who could find a matching Michelin tire, and had him put it in the compartment under the sofa. It was so heavy, it never moved, and I was ...

Tony: Thanks for your reply concerning releasing the moisture from the air tank on our Kodiac Chassis. Coincidentally, Friday we were at our local RV repair business (where they have repaired all the electrical problems we had with our outside lights) and asked our mechanic about the possibility of ...

Thanks for your reply and For Bill Hemme's comments. We did not receive a manual on the Links System, only a short sort of pamphlet with very little information. I did download the manual as you suggested and we really appreciate the info and read about the need to drain the air tank. Most of the eq...

Thanks for your most helpful reply, Matthew! Will try dumping each day and re inflating the Links System, as we definitely have not been doing that. Usually, each day, we restart, the Links system reloads automatically, sometimes it even does that while in transit, if the road surface is quite diffe...

Hello All! I've just traded my07 BF24 RB for an 09 28 WB, and like it very much, especially for the extra inside width. Have to use a step stool for some of the extra height, but that's okay. The Chassis is a Chevy Kodiac, which is very different from the Ford I am accustomed to driving. It is equip...

Enjoyed the photo. My standard poodle, always road "Shotgun" in my 24 RB. A dog or a pair of dogs is great company.

Thanks! I appreciate the info, and Jerry was the first one who told me this, but said to check with BF Iowa as to whether that offer is still ongoing.

Sounds good to me, John. What kind of BF do you have now? I'm anxious to have my new 28 Rear bed on the road. I've loved my 24RB, and the BLT before that. Will be subscribing to a new Road Service within the next few days.
