The 2002 Coachman Catalina Lite travel trailer is right now valued at a base price of $6,570 on the low side and $7,910 on the average. This is without added amenities that brought the value of our “old camper” to over $12,000. Considering we only paid $6,500 for the camper (after having wanted it for over a year without the necessary funds to buy it), I believe we got a huge bargain. The camper is a 2002, but it had been sitting unused since 2003, but thankfully still being maintained with frequent washings and cleanings. We have had this trailer now for four weeks and will be spending our third camping trip in it over the next weekend. Not only did we get a fabulous deal on a good, comfortable, and nicely equipped trailer, but it is a dream to pull behind our truck. It is much smoother than other travel trailers that we have pulled before, and its nice compact size gets into even the hardest RV sites.
Hardest for me to believe after it being 4 years old was the fact that the carpet and the linoleum were still practically new. It was very well done in that it withstood traffic and wasn’t stained. The camper has a fold out sofa for an extra bed, and the dinette set makes into a bed so that theoretically 6 people could sleep in this trailer. As it is just my husband and myself, we can stay in this camper without feeling cramped all day if need be.

Our camper came with an 8,800 BTU Atwood Water Heater, a 25,000 BTU Hydroflame furnace, a 13,500 BTU DuoTherm roof air conditioner, a Samsung Microwave, and an A&E Awning. It did (!!) Have the optional Filon (R) Fiberglass sidewalls. There is a queen size bed, a dinette, a sofa, and bathroom with expanded closet. It did have the deluxe cabinetry that made for double the storage capacity. We now can store all the fishing tackle and poles, with 8 chairs, AND rafts and floats all under the bed and leave the rest of the storage for linens and essentials. There is a patio light, but we opted for getting the extra-cheesy patio lights to hang from the awning.
All in all it is a very well made and easy to love travel trailer. If you haven’t looked into getting a Coachman, I highly recommend browsing their website for YOUR next camping trip!
