You'll have a lot of replies of how terrible the coachmens have been in the past or the older ones are the only good ones. My personal experience with ours has been fantastic, this will be our 3rd season, and the only problems we have had have been of the stupid on our part kind. I don't have any experience with your model but I can honestly say we love ours. No it isn't one of the top of the line trailers but had everything we wanted, and then some, for a fantastic price.

Just went to the RV show in KC today. While we saw a lot of awesome TT's we didn't buy one. Love the 2000 Coachmen Catalina 297 RKS we have now. We also belong to the Coachmen camping club and it has been really great. Been to several Coachmen State Rallies met lots of good people. Don't know how the other manufactures operate but Coachmen really supports their owners. At least thats our experience.

This will be our second camping season with our 2011 Coachman Catalina and we love it! The price was good, layout is perfect for my husband and I and so far we have encountered no problems with the unit.

I have a 2010 coachmen catalina 28bhs. It is essentially the exact same trailer as yours. All I can say is I love it. I've had no problems with it whatsoever. If you care for it properly, you should have no issues.

I have a 2011 Coachman Catalina 27 FBCK and I love it! I am full time in mine since last Nov 6th, the only issue I have had is with the grey water dump value dripping a little when pulled out to drain. If you like it and its in your price range go for it...
