hi folks. I'm in Baker the product specialist here at American RV today we're gonna go over the 2016 coachman Freelander 21 QB this is gonna be a perfect traveler coach you can take it round nice and easy to drive yet it's still gonna be short enough to fit in all those hard-to-reach places this particular one is going to be on the Chevy 4500 chassis which is going to have your v8 engine in it now some people start to get a little leery about the v8 they're used to the Ford v10, but.
I'm here to tell you you won't have any issues with the power it's actually gonna put out about 20 more horse in the Ford v10 does and you're gonna get better fuel economy and also a bigger doghouse inside as we move back on the coach you'll see you have a nice power awning or the 21 QB here pretty much spans the entire line for the coach which is wonderful that way you can set up your chairs sit out and around that power awning comes out courts gonna provide shade as well as protect you from the rain why and underneath there maybe you want to you know enjoy a football game right. So, we do have a spot right here for outside TV or hookups we'll be right in here that way you can go ahead and install that and have a TV outside to enjoy while you're underneath your awning now a couple things. I want to point out about the exterior of the coachman one is this is the fiberglass that use on here it's going to be colored all the way through.
So, what that means for you the big advantage is, if you ever do you know bump into it with your keys or something scratches up against it it's not going to show white the color glass or the fiberglass is colored all the way through. So, it's gonna be the same color it's not gonna show scratches near as easily also it is gonna have as Dell composite panels on there what that is is on the back of the fiberglass they have to mount that to something most manufacturers melted to luan which is a wood substrate they're gonna use as dowel big advantage of as tell, if you've ever seen the fiberglass of exterior of the unit's where it starts to wave that's because there's gonna be water intrusion glue on that most manufacturers use will absorb water, if it soaks in and then you'll start to get that delamination that'll never happen on the as Dell because that composite is going to be waterproof and it's also not going to use a lot of the harsh chemicals they use in lieu on these you don't have to take a bunch of pieces of wood and glue them together. So, definitely a superior system last, but not least.
I want to talk about the camping cozy package this is something we here at American RV feel is very important we order it on almost all of our class C's it's gonna do a couple things for you one it's gonna give you a heated holding tank so, if you are gonna be in colder climates you're not gonna have to worry about anything freezing it's also going to take your valves at your termination and move them up to the tank that way again you don't have to worry about those freezing over on you and in my eyes the most important is you're going to get dual pane windows, if you ever look it's a lot of your big class a's they're all gonna have dual pane windows why it's gonna be better insulation values and a lot better noise insulation you're not going to hear near as much road noise you're also not gonna hear as much noise at the campground and you're never gonna have to worry about your windows rattling like sometimes you do on the single pane. So, definitely something very advantageous that we here at american RV feel is very important as we start to move back on the coach one of the things. I again.
I just love about the 21 QB this particular floorplan even though it's a little bit shorter in stature take a look at that storage you get huge storage in here which is wonderful because it everything you're gonna need this is going to be rotocast in here. So, it's gonna be waterproof which is great so, if you want to fill one up with ice you could have an ice bin you know maybe throw fish in there or, if it's going to be you know drinks whatever you have go ahead and throw them in there and there's also drains at the bottom to drain them out just a fantastic system and huge storage and what's better not only do you have access here on the side, but, if you come around you're also going to have access here. So, again just great access to a huge storage compartment right outside the storage compartment on the back you see we have a ladder that is going to be attached that's wonderful because that we don't have to bring a ladder with you, but this we can climb up on the roof, if you need to get up there for any kind of maintenance or maybe you're going to some kind of tailgating or sporting event where you want to get up on the roof for a better vantage point you can certainly do that as well as it is a fully walkable roof of course you'll have your bumper here and then underneath we are going to have a pole right hitch that is going to be rated for 5000 pound tow capacity.
So, that way, if you want to pull a secondary vehicle not a problem even though 21 QB is nice and short and easy to drive some people still like another vehicle go ahead and plug it on in and you can go ahead and haul all with it on the other side of the coach we are gonna have a generator it is going to be fully equipped with it that way, if you don't have shore power not a problem it is going to be fully operational as your boondocking alright folks. I know there's a ton of great features on the outside let's go take a look at the inside welcome to the inside of the 2016 coachman Freelander 21 QB this model is not going to have a slide, but again it's gonna feel nice and spacious and open in here part of that is going to be due to the nice large you dinette we have right here this is going to be great seating you know plenty of seating areas here we're gonna have the pillows you have here cupholders in the back there it's that way you can have a drink by it riding down the road or do you know why you're just sitting back relaxingg also this will drop down into a table or into a bed rather it's that way you do have additional sleeping space, if you do have additional guests also this is a great spot to kick back relax and watch TV which. I'll show you in a little bit all in all just a great feature up above you'll see here we're going to have additional storage.

So, wonderful storage area is there you're also going to have two windows which are really gonna let in a lot of light and, if you need to you are able to see out the back window there as we move into the kitchen you have a nice big Dometic fridge freezer combo that will run off of LP or electric and it does have automatic switch over so, if you are running it off LP as soon as you plug it into Shore power we will go ahead and switch over to electric for you which is going to save on your gas consumption we're gonna have our Furion microwave here underneath that fully functional hood with light and fan great storage next to it and it is gonna have a shelf built in which is perfect that we can put canned goods and everything in there really just utilizing the space, but you still have nice tall storage up front four boxes of cereal or anything else you're gonna bring with you here you're gonna have good countertop space, but just to really make it better they give you an extra extension right here.

So, it is going to have flame control than some of its competitors and you will have your standard oven underneath that you get an additional drawer a nice deep drawer there and you have more storage right here and again you have a shelf built in as we move up to the front of the coach of course because this is going to be a Class C here's going to be your bunk over nice and simple system this cushion right here is just gonna fill in this hole because this is a Chevy you do get more Headroom makes a little bit easier to get down into the seats as well as you're going to get more legroom your ladder of course is going to be right here that's just going to attach right here you'll see you have some connections that's where your ladder is going to go and.
