I did post something different but just saw your last post. It's too bad that the previous owner abused it so much.
I would still consider a Coachmen Freelander.
Best of luck in your search.

We are still in search for the Freelander. We just hope the next one had an owner that appreciated the cost and took better care.

We bought a 2010 freelander last August. Took two trips and loved everything but the kitchen layout. We were home from the second trip 2 days when our dealer called and said they had a 2012 32 fk. Traded for it that weekend. Wife loves the kitchen layout (not hampered by the slide). Heading to Branson next week for its first trip...

UPDATE

We have been looking on and off since our original post. We have sice done a lot more research as far as floor plans, weight, and other options.
Our new love is the Forest River Sun Seeker 3170D. We love the front molded fiberglass nose piece. We really like the bunk bed area with the ability to turn the lower bunk into a couch so you can watch the entertainment center.
We are now saving more $$ incase we cant find a used one in the condition and with the options we want. It will allow us to order a new one and keep our payments low enough that we can afford to use it
We are still reading the forum and will ask our questions as we need answers

If you don't already know, might want to visit the Forest River Forum. They have a classified section as well. We love our FR Solera.

We have had our 3170DS for over a year. We looked at the comparable Coachmen Freelander as well. The 3170's fiberglass roof and front cap and the lower sofa bunk were big in our selecting the 3170. Kids can sit on the sofa and watch tv or whatever and it is a bunk at night. The kitchen arrangement with the pop up counter extension is also much better both when moving and when stopped with the slide out. Good luck.
