Hi there benjicunney, I live next door in Golden.
I have a Dutchmen 275BH. It's exactly the same as a Coleman model I saw at Camping World last summer. You asked about ease of service. I had problems accessing the water pump to winterize it. I was installing a valve at the water pump to make winterizing simpler to do. I could barely install the valve because the access door is so small. If I had to replace the water pump, which will eventually happen, I will half to cut out a larger access door opening. Check it on the TT you are considering. By the way, don't do what I did and buy a TT out of the area. Both Camping World and Four Seasons will only do work on your unit during the off season if you didn't buy from them. This was my first TT and I am learning about the service issues the hard way. The RV industry does not work like getting your car fixed.
If you need a WD hitch I have one for sale.
