This is my first RV. I purchased it new, with COVID pricing late April 2021and was glad to have it. I tow it easily with my Volkswagen Touareg TDI. Due to having a male electrical adapter, I refer to this RV as a “he” and named him “little Herbie” or just Herbie. So, Herbie, my wife and I have gone on over 11 trips so far. Several lasting over 14 days. We have stayed at state parks, county parks, expensive/crowded private parks and even dry camped in norther WI. Herbie did not let us down. We have had no major issues, everything still works. Minor issues include: the red and white hoses under the kitchen sink keep leaking, the doors on the overhead compartments keep coming loose, cabinet latch mechanisms fall off, the tire under the front assembly had to be moved when the stabilizer bar was added (very irritating to lose the outside storage), it is not really solar ready, the mattress is terrible, there is no privacy shade on the door which is in front of the bathroom, the AC is so darn loud you can’t hear the TV or stereo, the sofa does not sleep 2 adults, maybe two toddlers, the bumper does not store a RhinoFlex sewer hose, it doesn’t fit, the bumper can’t have any thing added to it (e.g., bike rack, rack to hold sewer hose), and the Winegard is pretty expensive to get setup, and is just okay ‘to use daily. He only came with one battery… not cool. What I love about Herbie: he is so handsome, we get many compliments, all major components work, no leaks, no breakdowns, easy to clean, the ladder, the Azdel, no carpet, no vents in the floor, the sofa/dinette/my office very comfy for a few hours, dog friendly (Maltese and Schnauzer approved), I can cook/bake easily, ample indoor storage space, can tow with my SUV, AC keeps it cold in the summer, shower is tall and roomy, easy to clean, good storage under bed and in bathroom, porcelain toilet with leg room, nice decor. Fridge is big, everything is cold or frozen. Little pantry/entry closet is great for storage. So, as I head into Fall and Winter wish me luck. I love Herbie and we plan on growing old together. Hope to fix all the little issues that others tell me are pretty normal for RVs. If you are looking for a nice couples camper, consider this one as an option.

Bought it in June of 2021. We love the fact that it's a true couples trailer. The layout is great for a small trailer. The fact that you don't have to jump over your spouse to get out of bed, as it has walk space on each side of the true queen sized bed is awesome. We added a 3 inch egg crate mattress on top of the crappy one that comes with it and find that it is very comforable now. The 3 burner stove with the small oven is nice as is the bathroom layout. The sofa could be more comfortable, so we purchased two foldable storage ottomens which we store under the bed when not in use. We've been on 4 trips and have had some issues, like everyother travel trailer owner. The worst: the side out leaked during a deluge and we had to close it to keep it from leaking more. We used a friends large dehumidifier to dry up the trailer walls and thankfully you cannot tell that it leaked. Also, on the lowest setting the refrigerator was feezing food. The sink leaked during a trip to Marianna Florida but were blessed to find a truck/RV repair place that was honest, worked on it two hours, having to make two trips from their location to a parts place and even so, they only charged us $100. As someone else stated the compartment doors over the couch never seem to close correctly and the place we purchased it from can't seem to fix it! Currently it is once again at the dealership getting repaired. They keep it for an average of three weeks every time you take it in and they want you to buy their lifetime warrenty for 400 dollars ( up from 300) every year. The service department gets 1 star! Our warrenty runs out in June unless we opt to buy another year, but so far from what they have serviced, we probably won't. It's a nice travel trailer, would be great if the manufacturer would care a little more to make it right. I would recommen this model because from all we researched prior to purchasing all trailers have issues because they slap them together to get them out fast and then charge a small fortune for them. Despite the let downs, we do love our little travel trailer.

Coachman Freedom Express UltraLite 248RBS not 192RBS We picked this TT over many others because of the layout.Large rear bath is awesome, horseshoe dinnet and sofa give the grandkids a place to sleep when they spend the night in the "camper". Outdoor kitchen was a must for me and the grandkids love to eat outside. There are a lot of neat things like the charging ports on the bedside tables and the couch. We travel with 3 dogs and the leash holder by the door is a cool touch, it also is a bottle opener! All the hook ups are on the back left side which makes it easier to hook up. There is more than ample storage inside and out. Pulls with ease behind my F-150 or the wife's Expedition. Cons: the mattress it came with was terrible! One night and it was gone.

I love the design of this small coach, the big front window, the slide out with the couch, the galley, and lots of storage. It pulls well by a mid-size truck, too. Appreciate the double axles. But the quality of construction has been a great disappointment. Also, the dealer service has been a disappointment. The first time it went in for warranty for multiple faucet leaks and a microwave problem where the microwave breaker tripped at running 1.30 minutes. Following trip out, and I found nothing had been fixed. Water leaked badly in the bath, swelling wood. It's was in over 3 weeks for repair. Now I find the compressor on the air conditioner doesn't work. The tires that came on it were reportedly unsafe, so I changed those out myself. Such is life with the latest travel trailers. A sad state of the industry. I cannot fully recommend this brand.
