Introducing an innovative new lightweight toy hauler

Press Release February 2007:  MIDDLEBURY, Ind. - The BlastT may be small, but it packs a big punch. Blast - a multi-purpose hauler from the Adrenaline Toy Hauler Division of Coachmen RV - made its debut at the 2006 National RV Trade Show in Louisville, KY.

"What makes this trailer so exciting is its versatility. It truly is a multi-purpose unit," said Lawton Tinley, President of the Adrenaline Toy Hauler Division. "A guy can take it to the worksite, hauling all his materials and equipment, and then on the weekend, empty it out and load up his motorcycle or ATV."

Most SUVs, half-ton pickups and even smaller vehicles can easily tow the Blast. The trailer has base weights starting at 3,400 pounds, and its box lengths start at 15 feet.

The exterior aluminum skin is durable and functional. Coachmen added an eye-catching graphics package and a fiberglass sidewall option. The rally wheels on the tandem axles complete the sporty look.

A generator rack integrated onto the A-frame hitch, allow the owner to have plenty of electrical power on demand. The rear ramp door utilizes coil spring hinges so there are no cables to get in the way while loading equipment, and the door can handle up to 2,000 pounds of weight. An exterior option is a retractable hose for washing sporting equipment after use.

Once inside, it's obvious that Blast is more than a cargo trailer. For its size, Blast is surprisingly spacious. The interior height is 6 feet 9 inches and multiple windows let in plenty of natural light. "What makes this so much more than a cargo trailer is all of the at-home features Blast has," said Tinley. "You have a shower, a marine toilet, a microwave, a refrigerator and an 18,000 BTU furnace. You can be completely self-contained anywhere."

The galley in Blast is complete with a two-burner cooktop, black appliances and stainless steel sink. The countertops are charcoal laminate and the granite cabinetry employs thermofoil cabinet doors. The dinette table is suitable for use inside or out. Coachmen finished the interior decor in Mojave Stone. Flooring throughout is fuel resistant linoleum to keep the trailer looking sharp inside for years.

"We put attention into the details," said Tinley. "For example, the sidewalls are reinforced so you can hang things from it. We also made sure the floor was insulated for climate control." The 15-foot model sleeps two on the large fold-out sofa's. The 17-foot model can sleep four with its 54 by 74-inch fold-up bed in the rear and the two bunk beds in the front. A single electric trac queen bed that will rise up out of the way when not in use is optional on select models.

Blast is a multi-use hauler. It can work hard during the week and play even harder on the weekends. And, it's all at a very affordable price. The manufacturer's suggested retail price begins at $11,850 (Prices can vary according to features and region)

Joe & Sybil :   I also have a 2008 Coachmen Adrenaline Blast 21 foot Travel Trailer and my ramp door is bubbling and pitting. One dealer told me what it might be. It has been that way for about 2 years now. email me at j12shadowace@hotmail.com and we can discuss this problem.

Cheryl & Ken :   The problem we have is with the rear ramp door bubbling and pitting - clearly it is defective. Has anyone had these problems with theirs? The manufacturer is giving us a hard time with replacing it! Other than that we absolutely love it!

Jerry :   We are selling our like new 2008 21'Blast as we unable to travel as much as we would like to. Added features to it are - fiberglass sides, additional screen room and awning that attach to rear ramp and micro-conv oven along with electric trac queen bed. Paid $20,000.00 Asking $14,500.00 817-487-9629 skratowicz@yahoo.com

Bike couple in Alabama :   We bought the 170 Blast and couldn't be happier. Just some minor additions and it makes a great little camper for the money.. sure beats sleeping in a tent.

Mike :   I took delivery of a 2008 model 210 MPH Blast the last week of December 07. My wife does craft shows and we use it to haul product and sleep. Most of the time we dry camp and have used it successfully in cold weather with a few modifications. (PA, MD, De) I opted not to take the ONAN generator offered in some packages, I bought a Honda EV3000 that runs everything just fine and is much quieter. The gray water tank is a little small but I pump the gray into the black when I need extra capacity. My dealer quickly addressed minor workmanship issues. I couldn’t be more pleased with this purchase. Coachmen toy haulers are excellent value.

Barbara :   I am buying a HiLo tomorrow. A 1984 16' with a King bed in front. Everything still works and it still raises & lowers. I can't wait!

Denise :   Hi! Where do I find a dealer for the Blast Multi-Purpose Hauler either in Ontario, Can. or northern part of New York or Vermont States Thank

Chuck :   call me then 661 342 2087, or Email @ scooterfxwg@aol.com

Juice :   How can I get in touch with you. Considering buying the Blast.

Chuck :   Bought a 2008 a few months back. Tows great behind a Durango with the 4.7 OHC V-8. But I must say the hardware inside leaves a LOT to be desired. Door hinges on bathroom are bending. Hinges on right side bed pulled out of the bed bottom. And that was with a 130 pound woman sleeping on it. And when we first used it we found out 100 miles from nowhere the hot water to the shower was plumbed to the toilet......lol

mdhandyman :   Sure would like to see it inside

Chris Carnforth :   I looked at one of these in Melbourne Florida, only 15' long but with a shower, marine toilet and basic kitchen. The finish was really good for something so basic. Still thinking about it.
