70 • RV PRO • September 2020 RV PRO ➤ NEW MODEL YEAR PREVIEW The TD series expands with the 12.0TD Max, available with an optional front storage deck to allow for an ATV, motorcycle, bike or other toys. The 4-foot deck goes on the front of the TD trailer. There also is an off-road camping package available. "You can take it out remotely in the desert in the West or up into the mountains. It's easy to tow and lightweight, plus we put a side-mount door on this one, which allows you to utilize this particular floorplan with the roof down," says Lantz. "We've seen some need in northern areas, from the Rocky Mountains all the way up to Canada for customers who want to use these but can't in areas with bears. It's not allowed. This allows the customer to use the unit as a traditional teardrop camper. If they want to go camping in areas outside restricted bear areas they can pop up the roof for more air flow and room." The 12.0TD Max has a standard 13.5K-BTU roof-mounted air conditioning unit that couples with an exclusively designed kayak storage rack. Options include an outside shower and grill. A large screen room off the back of the camper expands usability and access to the outdoors. The 12.0TD Max is 7.5 feet wide and 2,000 pounds. It comes with a microwave, a 3-cubic-foot refrigerator, galley sink, a queen-size bed and sofa. On the camping trailer series for both Clipper and Viking is the off-road package, which is now available on all floorplans, instead of select ones as in the past. The package includes off-road tires and a lifted axel system. In the LS series, a new portable cooler and freezer can be removed and taken with users on a picnic, fishing or a hike. It has both 12-volt and 110-electric. A new exterior is sleeker with an automotive look with a high-gloss metallic finish on the outside. That exterior also will be available in the TD Max. In the travel trailers, there are two new 7-foot-wide floorplans. The 172RD floorplan has an 84-inch dinette going across the back with a queen bed in front. The dinette can turn into an additional queen-size bed. The 182DDL has a U-shaped dinette upfront with Murphy bed that comes down on top. With two double-over-double beds in the back, it can sleep up to six people comfortably. It's only 20 feet in length and less than 3,000 pounds. It features a pantry, an entertainment center, a bunk wardrobe space for kids and an outside kitchen area with a new grill/griddle combo. The outdoor kitchen can be put into several different floor- plan options. In the dual-axle, 8-foot- wide units, there are three new floorplans. One will have a new bunkhouse for kids with a large rear bathroom and out- side kitchen available. The 272RLS has a large expanded front bedroom with expanded living room and entertainment center. "In all three floorplans, we focused on countertop space, storage, entertainment and living areas," Lantz says. "The word for us is 'versatility'. We're making camping trailers cool again." PREVIEW Pictured below is the Brookstone 374RK, a new addition for 2021 to Coachmen's fifth wheel lineup. Coachmen is introducing four new floorplans in its Clipper/ Viking lineup, as well as a number of upgrades, including new vinyl flooring and cabinet doors plus Bluetooth exterior speakers.
