INTERIOR:

 Fleetwood says: "Evolution models sport interiors that are ruggedly functional yet refreshingly comfortable with 2 pull-out beds, a dining area that converts to a third bed, and lots of onboard storage. E3 model shown to represent the series. Interior decor shown is common to all Evolution models."  We think this is a really nice camping trailer with a well thought-out use of space.

SamLooking to buy a 08 E3...in not bad condition. Any ideas of price point. I cant find anything out there. Thanks
MM in OC BCS in SLC- thank you for the great cracked roof-repair tutorial you posted in here!
juan martinez i have an 06 model have not had any issues except for when i first tried the furnace for heater they forgot too plug the fan in when they bluilt it now one of the corner pieces on the roof fell off where can i get one at stop by where i bought it they cant get one for any ideas >>?????
Laura ZehnleMy husband and I purchased a new E-1 from Ketelson in Denver. The CD player went out 1st. This was 2008. Then we lost heat, and then the crank would not work!! The roof leaked and the interior and roof is a disaster. I paid over $11,500.00 CASH for this camper. Fleetwood is now out of business and we have no recourse. Ketelson Campers said they could repair and clean the inside and seal and rubberize the roof. There are a lot of us going through this. What ever happened to someone standing behind what they sell and promote. America has gone down the tubes. Laura Z. P.S. We learned a valuable lesson--to investigate before you buy anything. 7-28-14
RJ.I have a 2005 E-1 and have the screen door problem also have had now leak problems but of course I keep it in a garage for the winter and keep snow of the roof that way.Tow it with a B4000 V-6 Mazda Pick up and no problems there, as for water line problems none, however I took the time to cover all lines with foam pipe insulation tubes thus giving more protection I love the high clearance of this unit. Note I live in North Idaho and when it comes time to sell this I know it will make a great base camp for hunters.
PamWe own a 2008 E 1. First the good: it tows well and goes about everywhere we would like to off-road. It has an airy and spacious feeling when it is open. The bad far outweighs the good. The roof leaks from many micro cracks, and this unit has always been garaged and lightly used. It also leaks in the front, I assume from the seal between the box and the top, and has stained the canvas quite noticeably. The door has fallen apart and is now being held together with Gorilla tape. It is very hard to set, and if my hubby wasn't a six-footer, it would be nearly impossible. The cook top is two tiny burners so close together that the second one is essentially useless, and the first is hardly any better. To use a frying pan on the first, I have fold down the pieces meant to surround the top (grease guard?) and lean it against the window. You CANNOT put two pans on it at the same time unless they are about 4" wide. Amazingly, there is no roof vent! So no matter what the weather, we have to have windows open wide on both sides for cross ventilation or you are gassed when cooking. The table is too big for the space between the seats, making it very uncomfortable for even skinny folks. The table itself is a piece of junk that fell apart early on. The curtains are cut such that there is not a 1/2 of overlap; I use clothespins to keep them shut. The concept gets an "A", the execution gets a "D". Note to the no doubt male designers of these: "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy".
Ken MI have a 2008 E2. Before it was two years old, the roof cracked from front to rear, right down the middle. Warranty would provide a new roof, but would charge me $1200 to ship it! No go. I had the roof Rhino-lined, the same indestructable stuff used for pickup truck beds. Within 6 months, the Rhino-liner split in the same fashion, more than 1/8 gap the entire length. Water was beginning to ruin the headliner. Finally, I ordered a 10'x15' sheet of EPDM rubber roofing material. It is glued to the edges and caulked as well as fastened tight at lower edges front/rear with an aluminum strip. No more leaks and it expands/contracts with the temps. Very frustrating on a newer camper that I had to come up with a solution myself for a faulty materials choice by Coleman/Fleetwood that has affected so many people. And yes, my plumbing leaks too but after the roof issue, that will be easy. Sheesh.
e2There is a ridge that sticks up about 1/8 inch that has developed on the roof that extends from side to side approx above the tires. I assume it has something to do with the extreme heat in the summer beating down on the roof. I calked where the ridge crosses under the plastic piece down the center of the roof to stop any leakage. Asked several RV shops and they do not have a clue what has happened. I keep it covered so I have not experienced the micro cracks that others have mentioned
ToddSSaw a nice '07 Fleetwood E2. It looks well taken care of, but am reading a lot of posts on problems with plumbing, screen door, and roof leaking. Should we continue with the purchase? It seems as if for the most part consumers are happy with this model as long as those minor bugs are taken care of.
SamI have a 2007 fleetwood/coleman E-3 evolution folding camping trailer i am looking for the complete hard top roof for my trailer can any body help?

KimI may have a number to call for the screen door problem. kimmcgaffey@gmail.com PUT FLEETWOOD IN THE SUBJECT...
GolferJust bought a 08 e4 and having problems with the air conditioner, the fan only works fine but in cool mode it pops the 20 amp breaker, Some say go to a higher amp but I'm not liking that idea..
Brown's I have e 3 in 08 love it. Roof thats another story cost 800 to have it sprayed looks cool life time on spray job. Has any one repaired the in side of theres what do i do lol its dryed up looks beter but need to fix
amishjimOne other note about Rhino Lining: It's blast resistant! As seen on the TV show Smash Lab(a Mythbusters clone), they blew up a pickup truck with a Rhino lined bed and the bed was the only thing to survive. Then they coated a building and it survived...
