New TT from Born Free

Not for everyone, at $85000+, this 23ft TT is new.

At that price, I'm buying a 40+ foot 5th wheel or replace my 35" tt every few years

Seems to be awfully heavy for the length and I don't think the interior is worth the $85,000 price tag. And a manual awning? Pashaw.....

Very nice looking in the photos and yes, a lot of money for the size. It has a lot weight for the size.

I like the looks of the high gloss fiberglass bodies, but its way to pricey for me.

more goat food

must be very early here 4:30am
I misread the price to be 8,500
man I took a look at that THING
and thought I got burned on our unit
(( that THING is super nice ))
but
come on 85 grand
for the truly well off ones I guess
with money to burn
why not
but
for the simple Mountainman
I will use the extra monies
to buy some more goat food

Won't need to many fingers to count how many of these will be sold.
It's way over priced.

I've been around the block a few times in the RV industry, and can honestly tell you that "Born Free" unit will not sell. No slides, no frills from a standard TT and a very hefty price tag.
