Apparently so, but it's the only one like it I've ever seen that is factory. Works extremely well for us. :)

Sorry for the delay. Here is a pic of the setup in my Born Free. When I originally bought it, the upper bunk had been removed, so I rebuilt it. Needless to say, it is much stouter than the original. I believe you could safely put 300 pounds in that upper bunk. Now with us 3, Isaac loves to sleep in ...

The hardest part of trying to purchase a BF motorhome is to convince my wife. Right now, she wants no part of it.. That is the hardest huddle right now. Hahaha! That was exactly the issue I had. I drug my wife around to look at about fifty and saved the born free for last. When she saw all the junk...

Sorry, but the drivers and front passenger seats do not swivel. They may in the newer model Ford E450 and E350 chassis but I have never seen one. The drivers seat doesn't on mine because it is an 8-way power seat, but my front passenger seat does swivel all the way around. It is a factory flex steel.

I do not believe they made a non-presidential model as every single one in this age group that I've ever seen was a President. It would also be neat to see one with a convertible dinette as I have not seen that either. Mostly they have two chairs with a table that comes out from a slot in the wall....

That's going to be one trip for sure. I would at least consider buying a sat phone in case of emergencies if you're going to be that far off the grid. You'll probably be fine once you get to Yellowknife, but it might be a bad situation if you break down or something else happens along the way.

Not sure I'm ready to step up to that plate yet, but I'd sure help with what I could to get it organized. I'm surprised this position has stood unfilled though! Does no one in the PNW know what a Born Free is? There are SO many RV'ers in this area too! And so many parks/resorts. Just to let people k...

Very cool! Good to see another local! Just drove through Eugene the other day on my way back from Seven Feathers. Also saw one other Born Free going I-5 South. They flashed their lights and I flashed back. Looked like a BF for 2. We exist here, but it sure is rare to see one at a park or on the road...

I am trying to register my BF on the website and all it gives me is a customer satisfaction survey. Where is the page that allows me to put in the info about my motorhome??

Why did you disconnect the gauges? I hope you at least have the EGT, anyhow. On my old 91 7.3 IDI with a Banks Sidewinder, I had 5 separate gauges to watch everything: Water temp, Trans Temp, EGT, Oil Pressure, and Boost. Even the boost gauge was useful because I could squeeze extra MPG out of the t...

What year Born Free do you have? The newer V10's should have electric fans instead of a crank-driven clutch fan.

I would say you are safe up to about 215-220. After that the high-speed fans will already be working and you'll want to back out of it a little. Normally you should run between 190-200 I should think. You might consider getting a Predator Tuner coupled with a cold-air intake and a lower-temp thermos...

Hi Roger, Yes, the probe is on one of the inlets within about a foot of the manifold, so temps are relatively accurate to what is coming out of the engine. I know I can run hotter safely, but I don't like to get quite so close to the danger zone like that. For me 1000 is hot enough. :) The engine it...
