While Francis was affable and made sure the RV was well-stocked with camping supplies, we were disappointed that the listing photos were deceptive because of the run-down appearance and the shaking of the front-end of the RV making it unsafe to drive when we picked it up. There was a crack along the entire length of window above the cab which leaked and there was back-end damage of right rear end…
I cannot say enough good things about Francis and Vera. Our family of four were first time RVers, and they really put our minds at ease. Any question while on our journey was answered quickly either by phone call or text. The RV was very nice, clean and had everything we needed. We were even given a ride to the airport after returning the rv!! Thanks again for a great vacation! -Sarah, Adrian, Rigel and Bronson
Francis was a great owner/host. He was very accommodating for our trip and was very easy to get in contact with. The pickup and drop off was great because he delivered the RV to us and gave us a ride to the airport once we dropped it off. This was our first drivable RV experience and was a great learning adventure. It does show its age in some areas, but that is to be expected and is made up fo…
Our family of four had an amazing trip in the Leaping Lion! Five states and more than 2500 miles over 14 days and enough memories for a lifetime. Francis was very responsive anytime I had a question while we were on the road and we loved the camp chairs, outdoor stove, and the many other "extras" that were provided at no charge. The Born Free name is well recognized in RV/Campground circles and…
Had a lovely week in Francis' RV at Great Sand Dunes National Park. Easy to drive and made good time and gas mileage. Francis was always ready and patient to help answer questions I had along the way.
We had a great experience renting the BornFree. We rented it to drive from Colorado to South Carolina and back for the holidays. It handled great without any worries for the 3,500 miles. Francis was wonderful to work and prompt to respond to questions. He provided everything we needed for our trip and some.
I cannot express the exceptional treatment we received from Francis renting the Bornfreer. This was our first RV experience and the vehicle performed like a dream, was simple to maintain, and amply allowed us the comfort and room we needed for our adventure. Francis was easy to work with, available for text questions around the clock, and a breeze with the paperwork and follow up. Prompt, courteous and a great guy! We'd do it again, and are planning to do so!
I Can't say enough good things about Francis and his helper Joe! As far as customer service goes, Francis is the best. Accommodating, proactive and helpful. They went above and beyond!
The RV is appropriately priced. It's not flashy or or fancy, but extremely practical and well maintained for it's age.
The bonus of including things like blankets, pillows, towels and cookware, etc. is a major bonus. My family hopes to utilize Francis's service and camper again next year.
I formerly owned a Born Free. Francis’s was a ride down memory lane. I had some technical problems, however, a phone call resolved them and I trekked on. I will look forward to further Leaping Lion excursions.....Floyd Barnhill
We were first-time campers and we had a great 4-state, two-week trip in the Born Free! This RV has all the basics covered and then some - Francis has it stocked with all the accoutrements. It drove well for over 2,000 miles and never missed a beat. Its age shows in some areas, but that is to be expected and is outweighed by the savings you'll get over similar Class C's. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a budget-conscious trip with a solid & well rounded RV.
