Born Free gets new owner

(Jan. 26, 2015) -- Born Free Motorcoach has been sold to HBF Investments, Wyndham Capital reported today. Jeff Butler, a former engineer with Dynamax, has assumed the position of president of Born Free.

HUMBOLDT, Iowa — Born Free Motorcoach has been sold to HBF Investments, Wyndham Capital reported today. Jeff Butler, a former engineer with Dynamax, has assumed the position of president of Dynamax.

Wyndham Capital brokered the sale for an undisclosed amount of money.

HBF Investments is based out of Des Moines, Iowa, and Born Free approached them about making an investment in the company, said Brandon Dodgen, a project manager at the company and the son of the owner.

“What started as talk of making an investment turned into talk of buying the company,” he told RV Daily Report. “We are looking forward to getting some investment capital to help us grow and expand.”

John “CT” Dodgen, owner of Born Free, has been battling cancer since last October, Brandon Dodgen said.

The sale will have no impact on RV owners as far as warranties and rallies are concerned.
