Question Does anyone own a Freedom 2280BH?

Hello, I am new to the camping world and just bought a 2011 Rockwood Freedom 2280BH PUP. I have just got back from our first camping trip with it and I thought it was a great trip. We bought it for 7,500.00 new well 8,500 with the AC and I am wondering if it was a good price since no one on this website seems to own one. If anyone has any type of input about a 2280BH Id like to hear anything good or bad. Thanks.

Hey there Jam0911 - we actually own a 2008 Freedom 2280bh and I've owned it for going on our 4th season. We camp about 10 times per year in it. I bought it in 2009 and was the second owner (it had been used 4 times prior so basically it was new). First, I think the price you got it for was good, it's new which is good and the 2012's are selling for about 10K, without AC. The great news is I think you made a great purchase and paid a good price! Honestly, we have not had an issue with ours and it has been such a wonderful camper. I am pretty particular about my gear as well so it has been maintained as best as you could maintain a camper on your own. The only input I have is to keep an eye on the cable that lifts the roof. Ours began to fray and rust last season and I did not replace it. When I brought it home to open it up to winterize it - the cable snapped! Thank goodness it was just to winterize. I had the dealer replace it which cost about 300.00. The net-net, make sure you keep the exposed part of the cable greased so that it prevents rust, and every season at the beginning and end of the year check its condition. We were very lucky that it didn't break at the campground, or before a long trip - that would be a bummer! The other piece of advice, never ever ever put it away / store it wet - or even damp. I never have, and even if it's raining at the campground and we leave I will open it up at home and allow it to dry no matter how long it takes (if it continues to rain) before storing. It's also good to keep them clean to prevent molding, staining, cracking, etc.. We have never had an issue with leaks, or anything. The battery is also to keep up in working order. I usually completely disconnect ours when not in use and pull out of the trailer over the winter and occasionally put a charge on it. We had one night where the battery died due to poor planning and lack of overnight charge. If you use power at the campground this isn't an issue for you obviously. Other than that, I cannot say enough good things about that camper. It's just awesome and as far as I'm concerned the nicest one on the market for the price and ammenities. After all that love, I will admit that we're selling ours this year, but it's only so we can upgrade to a hybrid trailer. If you continue camping you'll see that it's a natural progression in RV'ing. I will be sad to part with our first camper, but excited to get a Hybrid! Hope this helps you. If you need any tips feel free to email me directly -
