We've found that we could use more storage than our 24' RB allows. Not a problem when we pull a car but have some long trips planned where we do not want to pull the car (Nova Scotia-2012 and Alaska-2013). I've been looking at the Swivel Wheel Trailer ( http://www.swivelwheel.com ) Model 46 as a pos...

I took delivery on a new 24'RB a few months ago and was disappointed on how it drove. There was a lot of "wander" in the steering. I found a local tire shop that was very experienced in front-end alignment of the E-450 "twin I-beam" suspension and had it aligned at about 800 miles, they also "tighte...

I'm looking at adding a portable GPS unit to my coach. Would like to be able to pull it out easily for use in our towed vehicle on occasion. Would appreciate feed back on manufacturers, models, location of portable antenna, etc.

We recently took delivery on a new 24' RB coach. It's our 3rd Born Free (you might say we are satisfied customers). We sold our 36' diesel pusher last fall and went back to a BF unit because it fit our upcoming travel plans a little better. Our 24'RB is set up with 2 couches so we can use the coach ...

I have owned two BF units and now a 36"diesel pusher. Loved the BF quality but hated the harsh ride of the Ford truck chassis and the marginal power in the mountains. I would certainly consider another BF with diesel torque and air suspension.

We've done this loop four times and can't wait to go back. You've picked a great time of year. Following are highlights that many people miss. Capital Reef NP, Utah Hwy 12, Hike to Lower Calf Creek Falls (try to stay at the Calf Creek Rec. Area CG), Antelope Canyon (a slot canyon just east of Page, ...

Although I don't currently have a BF coach I do pull a '06 CRV with my DP. I think it's the best toad available. I use a Blue Ox system with a M&G brake set up. It takes about 3 minutes to hook-up or unhitch. The M&G is probably not applicable to your BF because of the lack of air brakes on ...

I've just lowered the price on my 2004, 24'RB listed in the "coaches for sale" section of this site. Check it out!

We used the Alaska Ferry system last summer (Haines to Bellingham). You had access to your MH during three 30 minute "car deck calls" each day. Dog owners used this time to exersize their pets in the car deck area.
We found the ferry very relaxing and met a number great people.

I have a 04' 24'RB and get the following fuel mileage:
@ 60mph (no wind) 10 mpg
@ 65mph (no wind) 9 mpg
@ 70 mph (no wind) 7-8 mpg

A headwind or tailwind can easily add or subtract 2 mpg

Just returned from a great Alaska experience (9,000 miles plus 1,000 miles on ferry). If anyone is planning an Alaska trip I will be glad to pass on what we learned. Motor Home worked great--no major problems.
