Fuel economy is around 8.5 MPG driving at 65 on the interstate across the country. Engine has enough power for what it is intended to do, but I don\'t expect to win any races. It is a \"value line\", so it isn\'t fancy, but build quality seems to be on par with competitors. Plastic sinks and fixtures are where they saved money. Still a lot of the same features. No problems so far, but I bought it used so the previous owner may have worked out the bugs. Air conditioner may be a little under sized- if you know it is going to be hot you have to turn it on early. Fridge takes about a day to really cool down, but works well when it gets there. Some of the outside storage areas have locks and some don\'t, the real problem with that is that the ones that do have to have a key to really make sure they are shut. The pass through max storage area will hold 2 8ft and 2 6ft kayaks all at the same time and more. Best feature of the coach! Holding tanks could be larger for more convenience, but everyone else in this class has about the same size. If you don\'t think you need levelers you are wrong. I wish I had them, and the system alone costs almost $3000, so if I had it to do over I would have negotiated that in the price. Not absolutely necessary, but at least having stabilizer jacks would solve the rocking problem. Overall, I am satisfied and find the floor plan very convenient. Storage is good inside and out. If I could make one change, I would add a pocket door for the rear bedroom. The vehicle does feel \"loaded\" when driving, but is capable of making the journey. I would buy this RV again. It is basically a Four Winds with a different name, built the same with less expensive fixtures.

Bought new. When picking up the unit. During walk thru. The exterior tv wouldnt turn on and in dash radio was streaky. They put another tv on it before i left. Scheduled to install new radio. While waiting the drawer uner the stove started droppin bearings from the drawer glide. Scheduled to install with the new radio. Went dry camping. Battery died into one day while running the generator most of the time. Dealership said it was a unsealed exterior plug that water was getting into. They Silicine sealed. The battery still was going dead. They said it was the battery. New battery. Did not put in store only to see if drain was severe. Lasted one day then dead. Called dealership. They said. You have to hit store. But it was less than 24 hours and only propane sensor and antena booster were on. Asked dealership if it could be the Converter. They asked me where the converter was on that thing anyway. Not my first motorhome. I am not naive to how they function. The dealership and this Thot Freedom are junk!
