RE: Who Loves their Coachmen Clipper

I am looking to install 14" wheels with the Goodyear Endurance Tires, has anyone done this without any clearance problems?
Ductape Dave 02/15/18 03:29pm Travel Trailers

2 things I don't like about tiny houses is 1. most of the narrow stairs have no railing on the open side which is a disaster waiting to happen if you lose your balance and 2. the bedrooms in the loft without a decent size sky lite is just a fire trap when a fire breaks out, there is no emergency exit. At least RV's have fire exits when away from the exit door. Tiny houses are not built to code as far as fire egress and safety are concerned. I certainly would not want to be in the loft if there was a fire below and all you have is the toxic smoke that rises to the loft without a proper means to escape. I am sure when enough people start becoming french fries then proper building codes will be required for these tiny dwellings.

RE: Home RV parking

I used 18 x 18 concrete step stones, easy to put down and easy to move. At the same time I installed a 4x4 post with electric, water and cable hookups and being my sewer-line was right along side the trailer, I installed a cleanout for sewer hookup and dump. Its nice being able to work on the trailer while plugged in and if family visits with their rv.

RE: Who Loves their Coachmen Clipper

We purchased a Coachmen Clipper 17BH last year and could not be any happier. It has been a great easy to tow and set-up trailer. Has a lot going on inside for a small trailer with plenty of storage and this is after owning a class A and a class C. I have done a lot of mods to the trailer and enjoy doing it. My next one will be upgrading the tires to 14 or 15".

RE: Problems found on a new trailer

What azdryheat said, buy slightly used with most of the bugs worked out. Back in 2012 I bought a brand new class C and had 5 pages of problems, It went back to the factory 3 times after I spent 40 hours fixing all kinds of problems. The factory just puts band aids on it, after that I sold it. Never new again! I bought my Clipper slightly used and saved a bundle on money and problems. But no matter what you buy expect the unexpected!

RE: Timbrens or SumoSprings?

After much research I went with the Timbrens. Very satisfied with them and a great ride with no sag towing and I don't have to worry about blown airbags!

RE: Help Me Pick A New Camper!

Have a look a the Coachmen Clipper 17bh. It has a lot going on inside and we are very happy with ours. Your tow rating is the same as mine and I have no problem towing. Good Luck!

RE: My opinion on slideouts

Slide-outs are great, what isn't great is the uneducated rv installers and the companies who hire them. I had one in my previous new MH back to the factory 4 times and it was never right, tore up the linoleum, came in crooked and leaked. Now I have no problems.

RE: Coachmen Viking problem & correction

You have to accept the way the RV industry is, as one dealer told us they build them broken and we get stuck fixing them. Back in 2012 I bought a new class C, after 3 trips back to the factory and 40 hours of my own labor repairing things and 5 pages of defects, I called it quits and sold it. Found out my unit was the last one made before Thanksgiving break at the factory, and they certainly took many breaks! If your handy it will not be so bad to fix the minor things and move on.

RE: Travel trailer hitch

I keep mine lightly greased and after unhitching the trailer I just put a baggie on it so I don't get grease on me.
