I wouldn't diamond plate. Slippery. I've heard some people put down Linex or similar type of bed liner with success.

New Guy here

Hi everyone.

Long time camper here, over the last 30 or so years we went from tents, to pops ups, to trailers, to class A diesels, and now back to the toy hauler. We recently purchased a 2016 250TQ Coleman that was only used 4 times by a retired couple, it is like brand new.

We haven't had a chance to use the trailer yet but I am sure we will love it.

I have been going through this complete thread, and I must say I was thrilled to find it because I was actually having a hard time finding someplace that covered or discussed the Coleman toy haulers. I am sure I will pick some brains on this site.


QUESTION: This is a large toy hauler thread, should I leave my post here? or should I start an new one? This is the only thread I found that specifically dealt with Keystone / Coleman light weight toy haulers so I thought I would just add to it.

Welcome to the forums! You may want to start a new thread in the Toy Hauler section for your specific unit, that way your questions and answers will all be in one place.

Pick up my 2019 300TQ on the 27th. What are y’all pulling yours with?

GMC Sierra 1500 Denali (6.2 V8 engine). So far good, but I think I'm eating my brakes very quickly. Will need to do maintenance to both RV and truck. Speed-wise no problems at all. Sometimes when the highway is bumpy, the truck gets very bumpy inside - which is annoying but I can live with it. I use equalizer sway bars and no sway at all...just a "godzilla" noise when I do a close turn

Do any of you have a cover for the trailer? If so how do you get it on?

Drum brakes maintenance

Any experience with drum brakes maintenance/replacement? it's as easy as doing it in a car or there are some special things to keep in mind?

Thanks

Why do you think your eating your brakes?

Have you weighed your trailer for tongue weight when loaded? It could have something to do with the bouncing. You might try air bags on the truck....
