Coleman owners

Been searching for threads about Coleman TT's.
Not many people on here have one not sure if that is a bad sign or not.
Anyway maybe this post will spark a little intrest.....

From what I read Thor owns Dutchmen, Which Dutdhmen bought Coleman a couple years back. So they are basically the same with cosmetic differences.
I am waiting on my Coleman to be delivered to camping world hopefuly in the next week or so.
We bought a new CTS192RD can't wait the weather is getting right.

From what I was told by our local dealer (we talked about Coleman last week), Coleman has a lot of "this and thats" from different trailers. A sofa from here, a dinette from there.... you get the idea. A lot of extras from other trailers are used in them. Just sayin' what I was told. Don't shoot the messenger.....

Thanks for the info. I am ok with different parts from other TT's as long as it is all assembled correctly.
It seems hard to find out much about coleman since they were bought out. I can find lots of tent camper info.

Have a good one.

Toolbox is great, Just a word of caution, make sure you have enough turning clearance for the box...I had to use a longer shank on my Equalizer hitch to do this...I went from a 12" to a 16" works fine now...

I forgot to add that today I am adding a Flip Foot to the electric tongue Jack. Also adding another medicine cabinet in the bath room I think it will work out, will send pics when I finish....

Very nice...what did u use to fasten it to the wall so it won't fall off during travel and still hold the weight? Did u find a stud to screw/ nail to ? Use adhesive ?
Again a very nice job.

I just used screws, plus the double back Automobile Body tape...It holds pretty good, I use it for a lot of places where I don't want to many holes..
I think it will stay up fine, I will know on my first trip..LOL
