Yesterday, I was on I70 westbound in Kansas (just west of Hays) and what do I see coming at me on the other side of the highway? ….a Ram based RV….and NOT an Isata 5! I was floored! I had never seen or heard of such a thing! I caught the name on the front cap and it was a “Born Free”. It was short and had curved walls (ala’ old school Dynamaxs) so visually it looked very strange, but that’s probably because I am used to the look of the Isata 5. Google has turned up this picture for your viewing pleasure.
It also got me searching for other Ram 5500 based RVs and I found this crazy unit…..
First thing that hit me on this unit is the Tag axle! “who the heck is putting a Tag axle on a Ram 5500?” is my first thought. Apparently THESE guys are as a $14,200 option and even proclaim that it’s “way overkill” for what they are doing.
Another interesting thing is the fact that it’s a slide-in style camper. As in, they build the living quarters separately and the Ram is a flat-bed and the camper slides onto the flat bed….
It’s REALLY expensive, but the concept is pretty cool. Here’s a link to their website:

Anyway, just random stuff rattling around in my brain after thinking Isata 5 owners were alone in the Ram based RV world.
