If you're looking for information on Coleman Tent Trailers, chances are you've been having a difficult time. The main reason for that is the fact that The Coleman Company divested itself from its trailer manufacturing operations over 20 years ago to focus on
it's core line of camping products. However, popups using the Coleman brand and floorplans have been in production until as recently as 2010. Coleman has been "THE" name in pop up campers it seems forever, but the fact is that Coleman trailers and pop ups have been made by other manufacturers for quite sometime. While the history of Coleman tent trailers is a long and winding road, we will try and provide the facts on what has transpired over the years and also provide some guidance for those sentimental pop up enthusiasts looking to find similar models, floorplans, and replacement parts of the old Coleman popups.
The current lineup of Somerset Campers are the Grand Tour, Evolution
and luxury Highlander brands which offer the most popular floorplans of
the former Coleman camping trailers. The company wanted to stay true to
the standard features, floor plans, and design that users of Coleman
tent trailers have always valued.
So, unfortunately since 2012 the Coleman name no longer appears on any new popup campers being produced. However, as indicated above, the Coleman name is still being used (by Dutchman) for one of it's line of travel trailers. Nevertheless, the news is not all bad for those looking to replace an older Coleman tent trailer model. Essentially, very similar models are being built under the Somerset brand, utilizing the same floorplans, engineers, and production personnel that made the Coleman popups for many years. Even though it doesn't have the Coleman logo on it anymore, it's as close as you will get to owning a tent trailer with the brand name synonymous with camping.
