Pros:easy to open

Cons:the sink

The Bottom Line: the 2000 Colemans are a well made tent trailer.they hold their value and are worth the price(check n.a.d.a. guide first).


I have a 2000 Coleman Timberlake.the layout is similar to the grand tour series. the previous owner had all options except air. this makes it comparable to the standard features of the grand tour.
If you are considering buying a Coleman 2000, look at the sink.It folds upside -down into the trailer whilst traveling.What this does is pour trapped sink water onto the galley floor.Also, any cans or what not you might have in the cabinets will come spilling out all over the place.This is one of the most idiotic designs I have ever seen in a tent trailer.Not only that the side bars allow the galley to rest on the floor causing rubbing. This'll eventually put a hole in the floor.Coleman admits to this serious design flaw and suggests laying a towel down to absorb water and act as a barrier.This problem was fixed in later years in a swing out -swing down model that remains level throughout the transition.I still curse this every time it happens

Onto fit and finish;the fact of the matter is that they slap these things together in a few days so if this is your first tent trailer , don't expect things to work like your home.Also,having had tent trailers that were made as far back as 1977,I can assure you,plastic is the name of the game today.Being light allows for more features,things that were unheard of in the 70s.This comes at a price however ,and these Coleman's are much less sturdy than older models.They should be stored out of the sun or it'll become apparent after a few short years.Plastic will warp,caulking will dry and crack and the trailer will leak if left out in the rain.When considering a purchase look for water
stains on the inside.

Also,the grands are big trailers.most people i see are towing with inadequit vehicles .If you get into an accident and are towing over capacity you may not be covered.Do the math and make sure everything adds up.I bought an anti sway hitch and coupled with the electric towing brake these trailers are a breeze to drive.

Finally,here in southern ca. these trailers are very popular.at any campground you can see dozens of them.They hold there value o.k. and are comfortable.The grand tours are 20 feet long closed so consider that if your storing it in your driveway.
