I have a 2012 Coachman Catalina 251RBKS. Tip to tail it measures right at 30'. Attached is a picture of the day I picked her up, and one at Lewis & Clark Caverns in Montana.

I have to agree with Ryand that as long as you don't mind the aluminum siding, the Catalina line is a great value! That said, we've had a few problems but I don't believe they are any worse then any other trailer on the market.

Kf4mnc, You have a real nice looking trailer and truck combo
Coachman sure does make some nice looking trailers.

I can't be sure, but it looks like you have the Wingman UHF performance enhancer on your antenna. Mine only came with the Sensar III antenna, and I have been thinking about springing for the Wingman and SensarPro TV signal strength meter, but I'm hesitant to spend money on something that may not really make a difference.
Do you have the Wingman, and is it all that?

Anybody else with experience, please feel free to chime in here!

I purchased the wingman. It makes for a much better picture. The stations used to break up a lot but not anymore. The drawback is you have to adjust the antenna for each individual station. Easy install. Took about 5 minutes

They are cheap enough, I guess I can't afford NOT to do it.
Thanks!

Wife and I just bought a Coachmen 192RBS in November . Can't wait to use it when the weather breaks and spring arrives. Everyone we show it to like's it and say's "That Ain't Camping" LOL. All the creature comforts and perfect for the two of us . We have never done this as we are Rookie's , I have done alot of research and believe I have all we will need to get started.I am a Master Plumber so Water and Sewer and Winterizing come second nature.
