Meticulously maintained 2004 26RB Casual Elegance Motor Coach, SN 6787, manufacture date 6/2004. Approximately 56,000 miles. Stored indoors winter and summer when not on the road. Excellent gel coat and decal condition. Original TV w/ integral DVD/CD player and antenna system. We never upgraded the TV or antenna because there usually is no service available when we camp (my wife won’t let me watch anyhow). Upgraded the converter to Progressive Dynamics 55 Amp w/ Charge Wizard so the house batteries will not boil dry. The propane generator has fewer than 55 hours, starts very easily, has been serviced, and because it is propane, there is no gasoline to go bad in the carburetor. We live in the mountains of Colorado so we have to travel the 11,000 to 12,000 foot passes, and like a Harley Davidson, we don’t go fast but we look cool! The HWH leveling system works very well where we camp because nothing is level in Colorado. Asking $32,000.

Your Born Free looks beautiful. My main concern is the Ford 6.0L diesel engine. Have you done work on it? Are you the original owners and do you have photos inside ? I'm in Colorado now, too ! LOVE LOVE LOVE Colorado! :D

Thanks Gigi for the reply. I know the 6.0 had a questionable reputation and I have had a lot of work done to the engine, notably the Bulletproof external oil cooler addition as well as work on the EGR cooler. The blue spring upgrade raised the fuel rail pressure for the injectors. I get 11 to 12 MPG on the highway and towing the jeep doesn't hurt the mileage to much, just slows us up going up the passes.
