Coachmen Freelander class C motorhome interior looking forward

The pictures above and below show looking to the front and looking to the rear. 
Fixtures and fittings are to a high standard. Lakeside maple cabinetry together with hardwood cabinet doors and drawers is standard on all models.  We think the interiors have been well thought out.  Some aspects are beautiful; the curved dinette (2100 CB model) in the picture above is an example.
The picture below shows the 2700 RS arrangement.  The kitchen layout is a nice feature:

Coachmen Freelander class C motorhome interior looking to rear

We show the main bedroom and the bed sofa arrangement available on some models (see floorplans below.  Coachmen says: "Freelander accommodates the whole family in comfort for an easy night’s sleep. Most models have residential-size queen beds (not the short variety usually found in other RVs), a roomy bunk over the cab and, on select models, an easy-to-convert hide-a-bed sofa."

Coachmen Freelander class C motorhome interior - bed arrangements


Coachmen have created a wide range of floorplans for the Freelander

All of the models have the usual class C cabover bunk and 4 of the models have a slideout. All of the models have 80 inch queen beds except the 2200 TB which is interesting with twin beds that convert to a king bed. 3 of the models have particularly nice dinette arrangements. Look at the floorplans and add a comment or question at the forum section below if you wish...

Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerSaraLooking to buy a new, used Shasta. Considering the 12 but can anyone tell me how many people it sleeps?
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerMikeWe have sold our 2009 Shasta airfyte. Thank you for the calls.
Re: Coachmen Freelander class C motorhomePeter and ValWe loved the Coachmen Freelander and went for a used one that had a good price. We noticed what appeared to be water in the bathroom skylight but was assured by the salesman at CAMPING WORLD that it was nothing and he even went on the roof to take a picture of the skylight to prove there was no crack. We couldn't make out the picture well and believed him. We bought it "AS IS" which was a big mistake!!! There was actually extensive water damage to the walls and roof as the previous owner must have been camping with the crack for many months. Camping world was asked to make good on concealed damage and they said they would only split the cost. We were told we'd have to pay a couple thousand. Wow... We didn't think Camping World would scam us like the corner used car dealer. We do like the Freightliner engine though and there are other aspects of the camper that we like....

Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerACI have a 2009 Shasta Airflyte 12 for sale. I love it, but need to part with it now.

Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerDoug GWe SOLD our 2009 Shasta Air Flyte 12 (Orange), we enjoyed it very much. Thank you for everyone's interest.
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerDonnaI live in Illinois, would love one of these in red! ItalianDivaDonna@gmail.com. Please contact me if you have one or know of one for sale.
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerSuzanneFor Sale 1971 Shasta Compact Asking $2,400 - OBO Original Wings, Original Shasta Metal Emblem, Original Compact Metal Emblem and A Clear Title These items in the heading are the hardest things to find on these highly sought after older trailers. I have seen many Shasta Compacts but it is rate to see the original wing, the original metal Shasta emblem AND the original metal Compact emblem. In fact, for years I didn’t even know there was a metal Compact emblem, I had never seen one. This very cute and hard to find lightweight trailer is a real attention grabber. The trailer weights 1125 pounds (according to the Shasta specifications) and is 13 foot long tongue to bumper. This trailer is so lightweight it can be towed with a car. It is ready for restoration or remodeling. This is a trailer that you can put your own design on and you won’t have to live with someone else’s design. This is your opportunity to HAVE IT YOUR WAY! The trailer does not leak now but has leaked in the past. It has a full-size bed, the original bunk bed, two closets (one of which could be a bathroom), jalousie windows, spare tire rack and awning rail. It does not have the stove or ice box. It comes with a microwave. As my restorer said “this trailer has good bone but does need work.” If you have questions or are interested in buying this trailer, call Sue at (518) 928-4868.
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerJamesLooking to buy one of these, please contact me if you have one for sale. I'm in GA. 95rcode@gmail.com Thanks!!
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerDoug GWe have a 2009 Shasta Air Flyte 12 (Orange), we enjoyed it very much. But we are selling it because we will no longer have space to store it. Asking price is $8,000 and we are located in the East Central Florida. Anyone interested can contact me at ddgut2@gmail.com
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerLk9/08/2013 Still have the Shasta . We already have the new one picked out. If anyone is interested its the 2009 red and white. I'm in south Florida . Low miles. New tires. It's clean and I have a clear title in hand. The dealer offered to take it as a trade in. I'm in reality. Asking 8300 on Craig's list OBO. Contact me at twistedsister1999@yahoo.com. If its not sold by 9/27 then I need to trade it in.
Re: FulltimingJohnhello, I'm a 50 yr old male and looking for a female travel partner. No hanky panky expected just the company of an intelligent woman with a razor sharp wit is fine with me.

I've been a teacher for 20 years and decided to go back to school and become an RN. Now that I'm a MURSE - I can treat my own ailments as they seem to come daily now that I'm into the "mid-ages". Anyways, blah, blah, blah....done with Academia now its time to semi-retire and travel. I'm an empty nester and just bought a 32' Coachmen Freelander and I'm looking to see North America in it. If my nursing and teaching skills are required along the way then that's fine by me. Let life unfold. I'm not creepy but I am tall, 6'4" to be exact. No Brad Pitt but no Hunchback of Notre Dame either. I have a pic on gmail where you can contact me at johnmccann1962@gmail.com

Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerrickWe bought the Shasta camper because of it's design and function. The style is impeccable but the construction is cheap. We have had to replace the sunroof. The faucets in the shower leaked. The outside electrical power fell out. The "wood" trim has come unglued. The curved door pulled out of the chipboard.The tracks for the sliding doors also unglued and I needed to use foam tape to put back in place. The metal trim on the table also unglued. So if you want a pretty but subpar construction camper this should be your choice.
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerStephanieI am in love with this trailer and am looking for one to purchase... willing to travel for her, but am hoping to find one in/near the southeast. Contact me at stephyancey@gmail.com
Re: Coachmen Clipper Sport Camping TrailerBigBaronWe unfortunately had the same bad experience with poor quality/workmanship our 2012 Clipper Sport 126. We bought it sight-unseen (because we live overseas) after doing extensive research on trailers. The main reasons we chose Coachmen over other brands were: 1. The EZ glide "king-size" beds without support poles underneath, 2. The bump-out kitchen allowed more walk-around room inside, 3. The dinette made into a 70" long sleeping area per the brochure, and 4. The "4 inch-thick" mattresses looked substantially nicer/thicker than those of other brands. Well, the "king-size" beds aren't (70" X 73"), The dinette sleeping area is only 64" long, and the mattresses are junk. Our 2007 Starcraft 1701 has better mattresses and cushions! The roof seals didn't even make contact with the box on either the front or the rear of the trailer because the roof is too long! I had to install a 110V transformer, so I got into the wiring... Three wires for the water heater just fell out of the connectors when I tried to clean up the rat's nest of wires behind the converter! The chassis wiring is worse... Our first trip the main fuse shorted out, and the ONLY reason I knew where it was was because I had to crawl under the trailer to get it out of the shipping container! Don't even get me started on the canvas! I can see daylight in too many places to count. About 30 hours of tinkering so far to get things "right". I anticipate another 20 or so. Being overseas there is no warranty, but they did get me the parts I need to fix most everything. One word - cheap. I WILL NOT buy a Coachmen/Viking product ever again. Too bad, too. They have some of the best floorplans.
Re: Coachmen Mirada class A motorhomeIRVFRONT PRIVACY CURTAIN ON 2009 MIRADA NEEDS CLEANING. NOT SURE HOW TO REMOVE THE SLIDING CURTAIN FROM TRACK.
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerKarenI'm in the market for a 2009 Shasta Airflyte 12 & found one at an RV dealer's. When I called the salesman mentioned a small area of delamination. He said it wasn't caused by water. Is there a difference in how serious it might be if it was caused by water? krazresident@gmail.com
Re: Coachmen Spirit of America travel trailerJoeThe floor plans on Roaming Times doesn't include the model I want. I want the queen island bed in front, side dinette and across from the dinette a sofa. Full bath room in rear. I worry about water leaks in any trailer. Molded Fiberglass ones don't have much to worry about I have been told? But this aluminum construction is nice for a new concept. Does this mean the studs are aluminum too? Is the whole trailer fram aluminum? If so then they should just drain holes in the bottom of the side walls if it leaks. Any advice for me?
Re: Coachmen Shasta travel trailerLkWe have a 2009 Shasta 12 airflyte. Going bigger soon. I need more room for a bigger family. If anyone is interested. Let me know. 11,500obo.

Re: Coachmen Clipper Sport Camping TrailerDee MageeBought a new 2012 Clipper trailer this summer. Workmanship is so poor that we have only been able to use it 3 times. Door did not fit and will not close. Still waiting on the replacement 3 months later. Seal under bed faulty and had to be replaced. Broken weld on water tank flooded camper on first use( no estimate when this will be fixed) and even have a hole in the canvas that needs to be replaced. Owned many RVs and campers before and this brand is AWFUL. Paid cash and could not enjoy it this summer at all. Nothing like trying to hold the door closed with bungee cords and not being able to use the water. What junk! You would have thought that it was made in China.
