2016 Coleman ColemanCTS15BH, 8000 BTU A/C, Decor- Sedona, Lantern LT Pkg, RVIA Seal, Winterization
First, thanks iRV2 for the Happy Birthday email yesterday! I'm back and want to also thank member input on my first post last summer. I've not lost the fever of owning my first RV trailer for full-time use. I still have tons of questions and concerns.
Above are specs for a Coleman RV camper and I would like input if anyone has the time. Do you think it's a great brand and good quality?
I have no idea what the 'lantern package' is exactly (?). What does RVIA Seal mean? What extent is the 'weatherization'? I want one that can be used in colder climates so insulation is very important. Does anyone have any recommendations in regards to other brands that are better for winter use? There has to be many living in them in colder areas since I've seen dealerships in these parts of the country online. I cannot spend anymore than 10k or a little over. At first I was gonna try a used one but thought a newer model would hopefully last longer.
8,000 BTU seems a little low on the cold factor?
What about heat? Electric space heaters?
I'm still debating the idea of private land use versus camping in various places full time. I've noticed a few campgrounds that were only 300-$400.00 per mth. which seems like a good deal.
Anyone know of anyone campgrounds that offer lots that are fairly private? Meaning they aren't close to other RV's and allow more leeway if one has pets?
Input is appreciated on any part of these questions. I would've provided the link to the Coleman but wasn't sure if it was allowed. I'm not particularly impressed with the layout but for cost (winterization, although I hope that means more than tank insulation) it seems decent.
