2017 Freedom Elite 26HE

Hi All,

Just purchased my RV and am new to the forum. Can't wait to check out all the great advice and suggestions for upgrades! Looking forward to camping and learning about all the cool stuff my new RV will do.

Life is short - enjoy the ride!
Toni

We almost bought the 26HE as we are in the group that leaves home at home. The 26HE has just enough comforts but remains small enough to go anywhere.

We just got the same one a few months ago. We absolutely love it.

A few things. Get the leveling blocks. it tends to lean a little with the slide out and you feel a bit like you are laying downhill.

Also the bed is hard as a rock. A mattress pad doesn't do much. We bought a 4" memory foam pad but haven't tried that yet. Hopefully its better.

Also up in the bunk we didn't realize right away but there is storage under the pads.

Otherwise we love it. its the perfect size for my wife, 2 kids, and 2 dogs. We came from a 33' class A and this is much better. Also tows my boat like a champ.

You are right - the mattress is hard as a rock! You'll have to let me know if the memory foam pad helps any.

My daughter found the storage in the bunk as she claimed that area right away!

So far it's been perfect for my daughter and I and our 2 dogs. It's super easy to drive and set up. Only done a couple weekend trips so far though. Can't wait for more!

Just got 26HE and we love it, or I should say we will love it. Slide isn't working properly and have to reset board each time in or out. One awning motor isn't working and a piece of trim flew off going to the road ? Waiting for Camping World to call us to bring into service department ? Thor's customer service has been great. They approved warranty work and CW ordered parts. Just waiting impatiently for them to call us and schedule.
