Steve, I have heard really good things about those inclining twin beds- good sleeping and comfortable sitting. When you do that configuration, what do they offer to replace the little "pull up" table? We use our little table ALL THE TIME and probably couldn't do without it - eating, writing, computi...

Greg gets the rear side bed and I climb the ladder. He doesn't do well with "heights" and is afraid he might roll out of bed. I enjoy the upper birth and many evenings watch tv from my bunk without disturbing Greg in the back. No sitting up up there, as has been mentioned in previous posts. We had 3...

Judy, what special procedures do you go through for keeping the pipes from freezing? Everyone seems to have their own rituals. We've not spent a lot of time in 20 degree or colder weather and so have just kept the coach warm inside and cabinet doors opened to keep the warm air circulating. This has ...

We have a 26' RSB and I sleep in the cabover. Our unit has the cabover window. In extreme temperatures I use the fabric cover supplied by Born Free to keep cold air from coming in through this upper window. If we are plugged in to shore power and are using the electric heat strip, my nest stays warm...

Hi Ed, Welcome to the Born Free world! When we visited the factory after buying our coach used, we were told not to drill or hammer into anything but a cabinet. They didn't want us to damage the wiring or anything else that lies between the carpet and the fiberglass. I'm sure owners who have done a ...

I appreciate all the response to my query! We physically examined the Garmin 2720 and the new Garmin Nuvi 660 today. Except for the remote control and alleged "via" point capabilities, the Nuvi is a clear winner. (Small body, bigger screen size, the screen was incredibly easy to touch program compar...

We are considering the purchase of a portable GPS unit to use in our cars, using in rental cars when we fly to other cities as well as to use in the BF. We currently use a Garmin GPS 18 powered by a notebook computer in the coach. We will likely continue to use this from time to time on long trips a...

Dear gbuick,

Cost of our system at Camping World last year was approx. $3,000 installed.

The Banks system provides items 1 thru 5 in your post. Larger tires/lightweight wheels are not a part of the Bank package.

We installed a Banks system on our 2002 26' RSB about a year ago. We believe we are getting additional gas mileage, however we installed it for the power it provides in mountain driving. We are totally pleased with the performance. It has taken all the stress out of driving the Rockies. We are never...

We saw a twin bed option on a BF at the San Juan Rally last week. Pretty interesting . . . I would jump on that in a second IF I thought I could avoid hitting my head in the cab when I got up (the opening is naturally much smaller). I also liked the tiny ladder that just slides up out of site. I thi...

Guess we're saving the carpet for the next owner or something? Reminds me of my grandmother who kept her lamp shades covered with the plastic wrap they came in. Guess I'm turning into Grandma! Greg says we should just get the carpets professionally cleaned from time to time and forget the runners. B...

Dallas, We parked next to a new Lazy Daze and got a tour from the nice folks who were FULL TIMING in it. The first thing we noticed was that it was wider and it is more of a square box. The BF is aerodynamic and the curved edges reduce storage, especially in the cab over. The LD had a sitting/living...

You haven't been having a very "cool" summer in southern California! Greg's family lives in El Cajon, Ramona & Poway. They are complaining that the heat is as bad as in Texas this year. Only difference is - Texas expects it!

Have a safe trip out and we'll see you in Ouray soon.

I hope it is cool up there. Can't wait to get out of this Texas heat!
