We've owned two Coachmen TT's. Our first was a 2004 249QB. At 25 FT. It seemed like it was large enough for the two of us. We did a lot of camping for two years. It was a show special when we bought it and didn't have any extras like a spare tire & carrier, Stab jacks, electric tongue jack, slide etc. We added every thing. We were newbies and didn't know anything. We didn't have a single repair issue with the TT. We traded it for a 2006 29 RLS(1 slide). A lot more room. No major repairs either. We thought that this would be our last TT, it wasn't. We didn't go with a Coachmen this (Last) time. We now have a 2014 FR Wildwood 27RKSS. Great trailer with all the new bells & whistles. Coachmen is a well built brand and served us well. Anyone who owns one should be proud owners.

We are considering trading in our 2012 RPOD, and purchasing a Coachmen Catalina 24RBS (2015) a new model for Catalina. We checked a number of RV dealers in person and online. The best price we have seen is in the $18-19,000 range, with an MSRP of around $28K.
Question: would it be wise to put a down payment on this unit and Lock In the price now, or wait till next March and purchase?
We will be trading in our 2012 Toyota Highlander for a Ford 150 eco boost.

Your suggestions are appreciated

We bought our 243RBS last March. During this month, the area RV Dealers all have an open house with prices "slashed'to a respectable level. So that's a toss-up.

The F150 Eco Boost will be a beast on towing this trailer. I'm going to upgrade my TV at the first of the year. I am leaning towards an F250 6.7, or maybe even the F350. The only reason is that I will be buying used and the price difference between the diesel and the eco boost is negligible. I just really like the big trucks.

That said, I've never owned one, so my opinion could change.

The only issue so far is that I haven't been able to take it out as much as I want. We have been out on 6 trips, with no problems.

I really need to buy an extension ladder to get on the roof. I'm borrowing one now.
