Default New one!

We just traded in our 2011 Keystone Passport travel trailer for a 2012 Coachmen Freelander 32BH class C motorhome.
It is a beautiful rig and we cant wait to get out in it!

The first time I took off in one of those would also be the last, as I likely would not return...

Did you get bored with the old one?

I just traded an 07 Damon Daybreak for a 2012 Winnebago. Love the change!!

From this



To this



The new rig has full body paint and is two foot shorter.

Wow that is a sharp looking rig!!

We love our new one. So far we have been to Weatherford Texas foran overnight, then we spent about 9 days out last month we were in Vegas with a few stops along the way. Just got back from the Belton, TX hamfest this past weekend. We are loving it.

That big slide has 2 bunks and the wardrobe closet in the master in it.
Sure wish retirement would get here sooner!!
