    Hi folks,

    Looking to get back in the game and I am not seeing much on Craigslist this time of year. I had a 2010 Coleman Utah that I really miss and a Jayco Hybrid in the past.

    Now I am looking for popup with 2 King or Queen beds and a couch. Preferably a Coleman/Fleetwood non-ABS roof but I will consider other makes as well.

    I am in the lower Hudson Valley of NY about 65 miles north of Manhattan.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Good luck in your search. Using GL, eBay, and local Facebook groups is your best bet. Keep those Colemans on the road!

    Try RV Trader. I sold my first popup through RV Trader.

    Good luck with your search. It took me a full year and a half of actively looking for my Fleetwood Utah. Although it wasn't specificlly the Fleetwood at the time but anything with a slide out that was still in working order and usable. At the time I was looking that was an impossible task apparently. My search range was anywhere within a 5 hour drive radius from me. Ultimately I found my unit on RV Trader. Try using multiple names in your searches, tent trailer, popup, or even nothing more than RV. My camper was actually miss labeled in RV Trader and came up as truck camper in a search even though the description and camper itself was a popup. I found it by accident when I failed to put search credentials in.

    You're probably aware of this but the newest Coleman/Fleetwoods are going on 9 years old now. Parts are still available in general but are starting to get scarcer and more expensive.

    We got my current pup when it was about 9 years old so there's nothing wrong with that if you find the right one, but many out there will be much older.

    As of now, I never had any problems with parts. I now buy a bunch of parts just in case... pole nipples, bed rail ends, and several parts that break easily. Some dealers could find parts or similar sized parts.

    Thanks for the tips folks. I'll keep checking RVTrader, CraigsList (lots of scammers) and Ebay. Not sure what GL and Let's go is.

    It doesn't have to be a Coleman/Fleetwood. I am definitely open to other makes but I do like the layout of the Utah and Bayside and liked some of the features of the Utah I had (front storage box, king beds, the ability to fit (2) propane tanks and a large battery, stepper door etc.

    We may be a bit presumptuous and book some sites soon. The search continues. Thanks again.

    I did the same when I had my Coleman. I bought some of the breakable parts on eBay and kept them on hand. I also made some of my own stepper door bolts and kept those handy.

    I'm not sure how far you are willing to travel but I am in Ohio and looking for a pop up. I found a 2009 Coleman Utah for $3,996 on RVtrader in Holland, OH
