New Coleman Lantern 244BH Owner

Hey all - just got a 2019 Coleman 244BH after shopping for 2+ years and reading a lot of these forum posts. Picked it up from Camping World Saturday Morning and drove it to the beach that night!

Congrats. I have had my Coleman for 3 years and did a lot of mods to "make it my own" and really had no problems with it. Enjoy the unit and Happy Camping

Thanks for sharing. I do like the metal siding. One of the reason we got our Aspen Trail. Enjoy your rig and safe travels.

I'm with you on that! I prefer the metal and the non-metal just feels unfinished to me.

Do you mind if I ask you which beach this is? I see you are from San Antonio, so I'm assuming in TX. We are going through there next summer and I'm looking for good beach spots. Also need a couple between New Orleans & Orlando.
Thanks

Do you want to go to the beach or be by the water in Florida? By the way, San Antonio is a long way from California.

Thats like my 274BH but with a slide. I have had mine for going on 4 years now and has not been the money pit I assumed one would be. Really like it, though starting to outgrow it a bit and will probably replace it with something like the 263BH.



I really like how well the Coleman tows, though it could be a little higher off the ground! I found a couple times where the dump valve was too low in order for the hose to fully drain. That's about the only thing I can complain about. Enjoy yours, they are some nice trailers for the money.

It's Padre National Seashore, really cheap to camp there and definitely recommend it - 60 miles of beach you can drive down and find the spot you want.
