What to Buy?

Born Free, New Model, 22 ft C/O w back Kitchen separate shower in bath in new model, Choice of Ford 6.8 V10 or Chevy 8.1 V8. OR Coachman 25' Freelander on the freightliner chassis. Have seen the Born Free but not the Coachman. Born Free looks like good quality. It is our First and we do not want too big. I need direction! Coachman is a lot less $.

Stan, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy this website and forums. How do you plan to use one of these rigs? Have you rented something close to this in the past? You might want to consider doing so, so that you can test the match of the coach to what you want to do and will it adapt if your plans change. I am glad to see you doing some research instead of getting all caught up in an impulsive moment. Take care and enjoy the hunt.

I'd pick the Born Free over the Coachman. It's a family owned company with hands-on management that knows their product and market intimately. If their product suits your needs, it should be a good choice.

There's a good reason for that (IMHO).

Born Free, according to my research, has significantly higher ratings. Best of luck with your search!
