Travel Sacks were issued with new Born Free Coach's. They are large sleeping bags, that can be converted to summer or fall use by changing top to bottom, or vice versa. They were very handy! We used them rather than sheets and bedding.

FWIW, ours got stuck in the open position also. I was lucky. Oiled all moving parts, hit some parts that can move, with a hammer. It worked. Something broke loose such that it works. Bottom line for us-oil it. Miles

I've blown out the lines on our BFT for 6 yrs. now with no problems, and we live in Wi where temps get down there. Just have to make sure you hear air coming out of all faucets, and put a little antifreeze into water traps. Regards the water pump, after blowing out the water, I run the pump a little...

FWIW, we have a 2008 22' BF. We installed heavier sway bars, front and back and it made a significant difference. We hardly notice a truck passing us now. Its sometimes surprises us!

We had a 2004 27' Coachhouse, with two slideouts. We now have a 2008 22' BFT. Both are very comparable in quality. However, we like the BFT better because the kitchen counter area is larger than the Coachhouse. Additionally, the BFT handles better but that is because it has less overhang over the ba...

I fashioned an additional support out of tin, screwed it onto the back of the TV, and then back onto the original support, with reinforcement(plastic wire tie). I doubt it will break again. However, if one looks closely at the backside of the TV you can see the fix! Its the only downside. On another...

FYI, On a recent trip out East we went over a bump and the back of our TV, where the support bracket screws onto the plastic backside of the TV, broke. It broke to the extent that it just about fell off until my wife caught it. Ours is a 2008 BFT. I suggest to those with similar models to consider a...

Well, I have to chime in here with our experience. We have a 2008 BFT with a 2008 E450 Ford Chassis. Ed told us we were about the first or second party to pick one up. Previously we had a 2004 27" Coachhouse. Our Coachhouse bottomed out going over significant bumps such as bridges, etc. Our BFT does...

To clarify, on a Prius there is nothing driving the rear wheels. The rear axle is similar to a trailer axle. Just two wheels at each end.

We towed our new Prius on a tow dolly from North Carolina to Wisconsin with no problems, three years ago. Still have the Prius and going strong. Miles
