Just visited the Tampabay RV Show. We saw a few of the Born Free Class C. We like the 32' Floor Plan with Twin bed. Anyone out there have any pros and cons of Born Free Class C. Let me know. Thank you.

There are nice, The born free we are looking at is the 32' floor plan no slide. We also was looking at Coach House 272XL model. I like the idea of one complete shell with the Coach House. But the shower was not as big as the born free.

We are about to purchase our third Born Free. I can't say enough about their quality and service. We have only had a few minor problems and they are always easy to contact. They back their product beyond expectations. They do not have any slideouts because their coaches all have roll bars which makes them very safe. They also handle well.
Their dealerships are only in few locations. This concerned me in the beginning however I have never had a problem getting anything fixed locally and being reimbursed by them afterwards.
There is a web site "www.bornfreevrclub.org/bulletin_board/" with lots of info.

We did look at Coach House. They are also a quality built rv and on the expensive side as is Born Free. I spent a lot of time on the Born Free forum before buying our first rv. My decision was based on the Born Free quality , handling, safety and wonderful support. They are built by a crews of 4 - 5 people and if there are no problems with the rv one year after the sale the group that built that rv gets a reward. Great incentive!

There is a Born Free factory outlet dealership on US 27 near Clermont, FL. You might want to stop there and look around.

Thanks, we visited them and the RV look great. Now I need to make a decision between Coach House or Born Free, Born Free look more solid on the inside maybe because it used pure wood not compressed. I like the roll bars. With Coach house I like the slide out, the one piece fiberglass shell which mean less leak (or no leak). I have plenty of time to decide. Not going to jump into fast.
