2014 Coachmen Apex 288BHS

Just got it in January. Upgraded from a Coachmen Apex 151RBX and a Palomino Pinto PopUp.

What a difference. Camped already 4 nights. Can't wait to camp more!

We have the same trailer that we got in October that we have not used yet just wondering any issues with yours that we should look for?

Haven't fired up any of the water system yet but so far nearly all is good.

The slide has a spot where the caulking/adhesive came loose right next to the stove where the cabinet and countertop meet. Discovered last weekend that everything sits correctly when the slide is out-- things come apart once the slide is retracted inward. I will eventually take it to the dealer and have this fixed.

Check ALL your outside seals; roof, sidewalls, everywhere... There were some spots around the cargo door areas where the caulking didn't fully seal. I used some GeoCel ProFlex RV sealant (contrary to the Silicone recommended by the local dealer.)

Now comes the modding. Already added a Barker Tongue Jack, Camco Roof Vent Cover, and just ordered an Oxygenics shower head.

Currently on our 4th Coachmen fifth wheel. 1st one was a 1997 Catalina 237RL, second was a 1999 285RK, third was a 2000 Prospera 356RLTS. Current one is a 2011 North Ridge 290RK. Really miss the Prospera, don't miss the weight. Dragged that old girl from the tip of the UP of Michigan to Key West, to Mt. Rushmore to Niagara, to Virginia, and all points in between. Looking forward to new adventures, and showing the grandson some of our favorite places.

Our Prospera had a build date of July 2000. So while passing thru in July 2011 decided to stop at the factory for her birthday.



Our 2011 North Ridge that we picked up June 2012 (left over).

Our first pull behind was a Coachman pop-up is was a 1999, we bought in around 2004. Loved it!!!! Used it many times, in 2011 we bought a 2011 Greywolf and gave the pop-up to one of our sons who has used it many times, but you know what they say once in your blood ALWAYS on your driveway....HA HA They have no place to park it so it still is in my drive way while ours is in a storage unit.....
