More and more happy campers are ditching their old tents for a Coleman tent trailer, and it’s easy to see why. With the comfort and convenience offered by the Coleman tent trailer, camping has never been so undemanding.
Tradition of Excellence
The first Coleman rent trailers were actually folding campers which Coleman manufactured in 1967, until they sold their folding trailer division to Fleetwood Enterprises in late 1980s. Coleman tent trailers are manufactured by Fleetwood Enterprises, one of the world’s largest recreational vehicle manufacturers. You can expect the same quality
Features to make Camping Easier
The Coleman tent trailer is very easy to tow and set-up. The units are usually about 1,500 to 4,000 pounds in weight. The lighter models can be towed by a standard passenger car (just attach a tow bar or hitch). You will need an SUV, truck, mini-van or large sedan to tow the heavier Coleman tent trailer models.
The Coleman tent trailer has collapsible sidewalls all made from breathable canvas that is resistant to moisture and condensation buildup. Although it is relatively smaller than a family cabin tent, each Coleman tent trailer unit is still spacious enough to sleep up to six (6) people comfortably.
The Coleman tent trailer also features large windows, hot and cold running water, a stove, a refrigerator, a toilet, and a furnace. Some higher-end models also feature water filters, heating and air-conditioning, a shower, and even a manual slide-out room.
How much to Spend
Coleman tent trailers are much more affordable than high-end RVs. Expect to spend about $5,000 to $10,000, depending on the model and added features. Your mileage costs will also be much less if you are towing a Coleman tent trailer than if you towed an RV.
You can also rent a Coleman tent trailer. Rates vary, but expect to spend about $200 for three days. Cheaper packages are available for longer rentals. Seven days, for example, will cost you about $420 to $450 dollars. Price usually includes insurance and complete trailer set-up, propane, battery, and other essentials. Most companies that rent Coleman tent trailers also require you to give about $300.00 as damage deposit, but this should be refundable.
