The Bottom Line: A fun way to see the country, trouble free.


I have camped in every kind of camping apperatus on the market. My parents ALWAYS bought Motor Homes. At one point in my life, I bought a travel trailer to tour the country, and at another time my husband and I camped out using tents, cots, and a Coleman stove and lantern. All types of campers are fun.

Then a friend loaned me his 2000 Fleetwood Coleman Grand Tour Elite for a week to tour the upper Midwest. What a nice way to camp and travel and here is why:

Touring in a motor home is comfortable, but unless you pull a car behind it (and it is already quite long and cumbersome to get around in) you have to unhook it from water, electricity, and sewer to go anywhere. These giant road hogs are also gas hogs.

When touring with a travel trailer, you have to have a large car or truck to pull it with and getting turned around is a nightmare. They also hog gas because of the huge amount of weight the car is pulling.

Tenting is fun but uncomfortable, especially with children along. Then there is the "setting it up and taking it down" of the tent, securing the stakes and poles, hauling it to and fro and generally fighting the cold,heat,mosquitoes,bugs,animals, and other nuisences.

Enter the "pop-up" tent and trailer all wrapped into one.
It is more compact for easy travelling. Since they fold down, your view out the back wind shield isn't encumbered. It is light weight, weighing in at a mere 3250 lbs. which is a fraction of the weight of a travel trailer or motor home.

Because it folds down, the height is only 6.7 feet and so you have a greater visability than with a full sized travel trailer.

This "pop-up" has improved since the first one I ever used one because it has a full king sized bed, a sofa which makes into a bed, a fold out dining room, a kitchen, and plenty of storage which anyone who has travelled knows is essential.

The company had this to say about their product: 2000 brings a new level of product design and innovation, with the Grand Tour Elite Series. The Niagara and Bayside offer more comfort and convenience than ever before, including a larger 3-way refrigerator, exterior aerodynamic body design and optional convenient portable gray water storage.

Imagine, all the comfort, without all of the weight, height, or bulk of a motor home or travel trailer.

The cost is unbelievable when you consider the price of the other two travel conveyances. I believe my friend bought this for under $10,000, but his is loaded with lots of extras.

We had fun during the week because we weren't loaded down with a lot of extra work. This tent/trailer is easy to hook-up, the extra room slides out easily, the top pops up quickly, and it takes only a few minutes to pull needed items out of storage.

If you want to travel and camp, if you don't want to work at camping, then I recommend the 2000 Fleetwood Coleman Grand Tour Elite.
