What is this?

I work part time as a "tourism counselor" (read: greeter) at a North Carolina visitor's center. It is pouring rain (Hurricane Sally) but I caught this photo through the window. Never seen one. Is it molded fiberglass? Love the front window!

well, thats the grill of a 1975-1991 Ford E350 series van/cutaway. so whatever it is, is at least 30 years old.

lots of makers have come and gone.... here's a similar vintage fiberglass class C

Thanks!

the jalousie window made it look old but that loft window looked very contemporary. Hope the seals are good in this rain. As for the truck grill, I am old enough it doesn't yet look ancient.

Reminds me of a Travco L'esprit, which was molded FG, but they were built on Dodge chassis.

It looks like a Born Free class C motorhome.

Pretty sure it is a Borne Free, a company that was around for quite a few years, but which I believe has gone out of business. It was a small family owned business which sold directly without any dealer network. They were very well built, but pricey.

this is a BornFree. I own a 1993 BornFree 21 foot Presidential on a Ford F350 chassis. it is spacious with tons of storage and a huge dry bathroom. It weighs about 7000 lbs, gets 11 mpg and we tow a Toyota Scion xB. it's exterior is fiberglass. It is reasonably well built. Last year we took it on a 8000 mile trip to the west coast. we still own our 1991 Scamp 16.
