Want to come out of 07 New Horizon fifth wheel and buy small ( under 25) class C with cabover bed. Want newer unit. Any suggestions? Any one traveling in small Coachman Freedom? Want good quality but small.

Lazy Daze Class C Motorhomes has been building three 24" Class C models for years, they are also lower profile for better handling, 10'3" tall. Also the floors are lower for easier entrance heights. And also three 27' and two 31' models.

Lazy Days refers to them as "Coupes" because of the way they handle and drive...with less wind blown issues and better balance.

Fully loaded right from the factory in California..used ones get somewhat a premium price compared with the ordinary Class C's, but since they are made better from a company that's been doing it for 56 years, and there is no dealer network when new since they are factory direct...and they are hand built one at a time...they deserve a bit more of a premium price.

All aircraft grade aluminum exterior and seamless aluminum roof's too! No slideouts...but the roomy floorplans and huge windows make up for that!

Good luck!

Just a suggestion, why not look at a Sprinter based RV? They are in your overall length range, and have an economical Diesel engine!

I agree that Lazy Daze are good but Born Free are possibly better (perhaps I'm biased! ). My 24RB is the perfect size.

I don't know how old you are, but really think twice about the bed over the cab. We have a 25 ft unit with the bed down. The knees don't like that climbing up and down in the middle of the night.

We have an Itasca Spirit 24'. It's an 2003. We like it.

We don't have a Coachmen Freedom, but we do have a Coachmen Freelander. We love it. Mostly because we think the floor plan and length are perfect (short, but with a rear corner bed and couch). I'm no expert in the quality ranking of RVs, but Lazy Daze and Born Free are always up there. I consider Coachmen average. Our small Coachmen is probably considered entry level, but we're fine with that and appreciate the fact that it has the "entry level" feature of no carpet.

That's great! If I want to order a LD or BF without carpet, I have to pay hundreds extra!
