    Good morning! I just picked up a 1995 Coleman Avalon for 2k a couple months ago, and just started cleaning it up. I have to say I am really excited, and having fun with it already.

    I do need to replace the kitchen cabinets at some point, as well as need to find a replacement dinette table. Can anyone point me in the right direction for these? I'd sure appreciate it.

    I'm also wondering if anyone knows offhand if it's possible to put 14 inch tires and rims on this without modification?

    Happy camping!

    Greetings! Welcome to the forum from Midway USA.

    I replaced the counter tops and dinette table in our Pup with 3/4-inch marine grade plywood. I used the existing pieces as a template and finished with food grade polyurethane. You could paint if you don't want the natural wood finish.

    Easy-peazy and didn't break the bank.

    Welcome to the Portal from South Carolina. Most rebuild them from scratch because they are better than anything from the factory. You need to see how much clearance you have for larger tires.
