What's the point? I purchased a FR product because I liked it better than several other manufacturer's products. I purchased it on a Chevy chassis because I like that better. Others like the Ford better--that's their choice. I would never consider asking Chevy to make their chassis more like the Ford. If I wanted a Ford I would have bought one.
I know that FR is open to suggestions and their (unofficial) rep here (Brian) always receives the suggestions graciously. I'm just not sure we should be encouraging FR to make their MH like someone else's. I like mine the way it is.
We had high hopes for FR bc they were getting close to this floor plan with the 24M which we almost bought. Given that Born Free is selling on Ford and Chevy chasis, not even a diesel, for well over $150,000 to $200,000 I think possibly they are on to something here!
We are giving suggestions bc we cannot find the perfect one for us yet. That is why. We go to ALL The largest RV shows, go to all the RV dealers, we have been an owner of a 25 ft B+RV for 15 years which they don't make anymore, want to upgrade, so we learned what works in a small RV and know what we are looking for. Unfortunately Born Free's are too expensive or that would be the one. The Born Free's are doing a wonderful job with the smaller floor plan RVs, that was all I was saying. I absolutely believe any company that could replicate Born Free's ideas in a more affordable price would really be onto something that would benefit them and the consumer. Otherwise why would BF be able to sell those RVs at such a high price. I meant no offense and it would make a nice option as Solera was fairly close to their setup.
