    Pimp My Pop-Up V2

    That would make sense but the parts camper is in worse shape than the Mesa. We went on our annual vacation last month and all went pretty well. It rained for the first few days but that's ok as we still had a great time. There was 1 day that the rain was really bad and it showed me a leak in...

    Pimp My Pop-Up V2

    I love it when a plan falls to pieces... I have not been able to get anything done to our camper yet, hell I haven't even started yet :( I ended up losing my job last year and had to put all plans on hold. I have a new job but had to take a considerable pay cut so the extra income just isn't...

    2001 Coleman Bayside Elite

    I've been following this thread for a while now and am impressed with your progress. I have an 01 Mesa that I plan to strip down to the frame and completely rebuild. It's currently usable but there are a bunch of small issues that I want to adress in the near future. I do have a couple questions...

    TV Has Fried Electrical System

    I went with a 8000# WDH which is far more than I need but I decided, because it was only about $30 more, to go a little overkill. Yes that was the first thing I checked. Then I brought the truck to my dealer to have them check the alignment and frame. I had them put it on a frame machine...

    TV Has Fried Electrical System

    What would you like to know? My Taco took a little getting used to but I'm so glad I bought it. The biggest reason I got it was for the towing capability, (6500#). I don't plan to tow that much but it's great to know the truck can handle it. Any trailer I'm looking at I look to be sure the GVRW...

    TV Has Fried Electrical System

    I have a 2018 Toyota Tacoma with the factory tow package. I had to buy an "aftermarket" brake controller but it was completely plug-n-play. As mentioned earlier, fuses are there for a reason, even the brake controller has it's own inline fuse. This should not have caused that much damage. From...

    Pimp My Pop-Up V2

    This is going to be a long trip. We are getting ready to take it out for it's last trip before the overhaul. I did need to replace the tail lights the other day and was met with a bunch of rot and mold that needed to be cleared as best as I could. That was a lot of fun... NOT! lol Once I was...

    Pimp My Pop-Up V2

    Good morning and Welcome to the next episode of "Pimp My Pop-Up" In this thread we will be tackling the complete renovation of our 2001 Coleman Grand Tours Mesa. First a little back story to get you caught up. In July 2019 we bought our first camper and it needed a little work. I rebuilt the...

    Pimp My Pop-up 2001 Coleman Mesa edition

    Well 2 years later and not much has been done to the trailer. I had to open up the back wall this week to finally install the new LED lights and reverse lights. Once I opened up the wall I found a lot of mold due to the rear ABS panel leaking. I'm going to clean everything with Odoban to get rid...

    2001 Mesa back panel

    For what it's worth, I have the same model with the same issue. I've never worked with MEK but I do know it is some ugly stuff to use and needs to be used in a very well ventilated area. My idea for repairing it is to use some fiberglass mesh and MEK with plastic beads for the large cracks. I'm...

    Pimp My Pop-up 2001 Coleman Mesa edition

    Well after having a disappointing weekend last weekend (the last weekend I had off) I spent an afternoon re measuring everything and drawing out the cuts needed for the hot water heater and the door. My Father offered to make the cuts so I agreed, he needs a project so he has something to do...

    Coleman Drawings?

    Maybe a strange question, maybe not but has anyone ever come across any original "blueprint" drawings for the Coleman tent trailers? I would be looking for the 2001 Grand Tours Mesa but I'm sure any of the early 2000's GT would work. I'm planning a frame off restoration on our Mesa and I'd like...

    Pimp My Pop-up 2001 Coleman Mesa edition

    So this weekend was a disappointment but a lot of work was done. My buddy actually showed up to give me a hand but sometimes he tends to dig his feet in and won't listen. He saw that one wire that I was planning to replace during this phase of the project and decided that nothing else was going...

    Pimp My Pop-up 2001 Coleman Mesa edition

    Well it's been a wile since I last updated... After an exhausted search, I managed to find all the information I was looking for. Now that I'm armed with the correct info I can change what I started and fix the mistakes I and the PO had made. I work a strange schedule that rotates weeks so my...

    Pimp My Pop-up 2001 Coleman Mesa edition

    Well folks, today I had a chance to try to work on this myself as my buddy that said he was going to help and I was expecting had something come up and didn't show. So today was 2 steps forward and 2.5 steps back. The biggest problem I'm having is I don't have much of the original box to work...
