We just sold our 2008 27RB, which, I believe, was one of the first Born Frees built on the new, somewhat-improved 2008 E450 chassis. During the 46000+ miles that we drove it, I kept detailed mileage records. Towing over half of the time and driving at about 60mph most of the time, we averaged an ama...

We sold our 2008 Born Free and are now going to try to go RV-less. It has been a good 4 years in the club and enjoyed all the people we met and the rallies we attended. Happy RVing to all of you.

I was at Sauder Village near Archbold, Ohio this last week. There were only about 6 RVs there all week and one of them was another Born Free. Sometimes it's a small world.

We towed a Jeep Liberty for three years and over 30000 miles behind our 27RB and it towed fine, but it was a little heavy at 4400 lbs. It definitely affected the mileage we got, but was a great off road vehicle.

Let me make a suggestion about mounting the arm bracket. Make a 1/4" wood base plate and mount it to the side of wall and then mount the arm on top of the base plate so that the screws go through the base plate and the wall. That will, in essence, give you 7 (or more, depending on how many screws yo...

Like the other Don, I had some trouble with bottoming my 08 27RB until I put on super springs (although never a problem, since the rollers worked very well). But, I also have had very little problem since installing the super springs. However, any class C that has considerable coach beyond the back ...

Let me clarify my answer above. I do have metal valve stems to which the braided extenders are attached. I would not recommend rubber valve stems if one uses extenders.

Well, I may have a problem waiting to happen, but I have driven my coach for over 25000 miles in the last two years in hot and cold weather with Pressure Pro sensors on all tires, including the braided extensions, and have had no problems.

I had CampClubUSA for a year, but dropped it when I found (1) that I was very seldom in the vicinity of any of their campgrounds because they weren't near any of the main routes I use when crossing the country from east to west, and (2) the one campground I did stay in was one I would never return t...

We stayed in Traveler's World RV Resort last year and found it quite good. We particularly liked it because we were not towing our car and it is right on the bus line that took us downtown to the River Walk and the Alamo.

Just got back from a 1000 mile trip and noticed no difference in the ride or handling, except that it seems to ride better over rough or undulating parts of the interstate. Since they are putting them on the new coaches, I doubt that they expect any problems with the front end as a result of adding ...

Just having looked at the BF website, I see that they are listed in the standard chassis equipment list for all of the 09s as "premium equipment," whatever that means.

The Super Springs I had put on are those that are in the link given by bcope01 above. They are additions to the springs that are already there. I believe that Born Free is considering putting them on their new coaches. I was in contact with Kim Olson at Born Free about the springs before I put them ...

I just had some Super Springs installed on my '08 27' RB and my initial impression is that they are a great improvement. The rear end is raised over 2 inches, which I think will make a big difference in the "bottoming out" effect and the ride, particularly over bumpy areas, seems much improved. Howe...

Just north of Cedar Rapids, IA on Interstate 380 is a nice, clean, well maintained, and fairly new campround called Lazy Acres that is surprisingly inexpensive. Easy in and easy out off the interstate. Also, just east of Cedar Rapids, with a Marion, IA address is Squaw Creek County Park, which has a...
