    Beauty Columbia!!!
    Last time I looked on CL Norwich CT had two 1983 Columbia's...one for free. The other was best reasonable offer.
    To far to travel for me to grab at either...DW would not be convinced the yard needed another PUP project

    1998 Coleman Sunridge. Just did a spring over to it today because it would scrape the driveway. Much better than the old venture, and more room in it too. Love it

    1990 Coleman Roanoke. Our first family camper. Got it last spring for a song when the neighbor down the street decided to sell. . This thing has had so many owners that the title has an attachment to it ;) But every one of those owners must have taken good care if it. It's in amazing condition for it's age, just missing the sink accessory

    Took it on it's "maiden' voyage last summer, looking forward to this summer when we introduce our new baby to the wonders of camping. Our 10 year old already loves it.

    This is my second post here. We originally had a new 2007 Fleetwood Highlander Sequoia that sat on the lot and got it in early 2009. I loved that camper. We did a lot of traveling in that dear thing.

    In 2012, it was killed by a neighbor's tree. With neither of us being very handy, we then purchased a 2013 Palomino Yearling 4127. This was, looking back, a bad move for us since the family dynamic had changed, with all four sons now heading in four different directions, my mother with Alzheimer's came to live with us, and husband was stuck in with a large project at work.

    I would set up camp in the back yard, and would get more and more unsatisfied with the quality of the build. Let me say here that if you have a Palomino and love it, good. Perhaps it was just MY camper. This would be for another posting.

    Husband and I sold it and I purchased a 2007 Fleetwood Element Graphite in July 2014. It is the most basic of models. No heat, no hot water, pump sink, no refrigerator. I did have AC added when purchased for those terribly humid days.

    I absolutely love this. I am learning to maintain it myself, plus I can drive and set up and take down myself. This I could not do with the Palomino. I just couldn't get that dinette slide in and out.

    For me, it is as close to tent camping I can get without being in a tent. Add to that how much I appreciate the quality of the build, and the care of the previous owner, and I am one very happy camper.

    Hi,
    We have a 2003 Coleman by Fleetwood Mesa which we bought in '08. We get a lot of use from it. Have made some simple mods but nothing others on this forum haven't already documented. We mostly camp in northern Colorado and sometimes in southern Wyoming.

    The next project is to replace the plastic body panel that attaches to the front of the trailer and forms the top of the front trunk minus the door. That panel was cracked when we got it and, after trying a few techniques to repair it, I am going to replace it.

    Doug

    Little late to the party, here is a picture of our 99 Niagara on our trip this week.

    It's a work in progress, mainly just maintenance items no major neglect.

    We just bought a 2002 Coleman Laramie, it is a little rough but is generally in good shape, still working on the wiring from our 2012 Ford Edge that had a receiver hitch and flat 4 prong plug. I got a 4 to 7 adapter today, that plugs into my 4 prong and has the extra 3 wires for ground, trailer brakes and 12 volt hot wire. Not sure if I am going to need trailer brakes, we'll see how it stops without it. I think we are going to love this trailer, had 2 Colemans many many years ago.

    Good afternoon pasobuff,
    I would very much like to get a copy of your owners manual to a 1999 Coleman Utah if you still have it.
    Much appreciated,
    Rockmonster
