The 30-Foot Coachmen Catalina travel trailer has good bang for the buck.

This 30-Foot Coachmen Catalina travel trailer costs about $37,000 Canadian. That’s less than $28,000 U.S. While that may look expensive to many, compared to many comparably equipped travel trailers – it’s a bargain. Other trailers in this class with these amenities can cost well over $60,000.

In this episode of TFL’s Camper Corner, we get up-close and personal with this trailer. Sure, there are price-savings that are obvious, but it still looks like a lot of trailer for the dough.

293RLDS, that’s – this unit’s designation and it’s important if you’re specifically interested in this particular trailer. Coachmen has a massive variety of Catalina trailers and it’s difficult to figure out which one is which.

True, RVs and travel trailers are painfully expensive. There’s no getting around that and we fully understand depreciation as well. Still, if you look at this Coachmen next to almost any (new) competitor, the price is striking.

This is just one of a multitude of Catalina layouts. Sizes and prices vary. (Image: Coachmen)
