From SWFL

I'm in the process of moving out of my home and into a travel trailer full time. I have not bought the trailer yet and I am here to learn and maybe make friends.

Welcome to the forum from New Jersey, Great place to get questions answered, Depending on what size trailer you are interested in ? A good tow vehicle you will also need.

Thank you.

I am looking at getting a 287 bhds. That is 32' 11", I think. As far as a vehicle. It's time for a new one I believe. I have a 2006 RAV4 with 140k miles. I've had a Bronco in the past and I enjoyed owning a Ford so I was thinking about a F-250. I worry that a F-150 might not be enough.

Well this might be a total newbie mistake. I typed "Coachmen trailer forum" into the Google search bar and it sent me right here. I also heard recently that Forest River bought Coachmen a while back. So, to answer your question, it is the Coachmen Freedom Express travel trailer. Hopefully I'm in the right place.

Definitely go to the TT/5th Wheel section's Coachmen sub-forum. You might find others that own that particular model.

That's why the Site Team always recommends that new members check out each section of the Forum and their sub-forums. That way you'll have a better idea where to post or do research.
