Coachmen Apex Never Lets the Buyer Complain
The Coachmen Apex series represents a dramatic departure from their previous offerings. For instance, construction of the unit was switched from wood to a material that weighs 50% less, resulting in an ultra-light travel trailer that can be pulled by vehicles weighing half-ton or less.
Basing designs on feedback from customers, Coachmen offers 18 different models of travel trailers in a variety of widths, every one of which includes perennial favorites E-Z lube axles, stabilizer jacks and outdoor speakers.
What We Like
Unique Design Touches When Coachmen say they pay attention to feedback, their designs are proof of that claim. You just know it had to be frequent campers who requested a model that slept 10 people and had an outside entrance to the bathroom so everyone wasn't always tramping dirt inside every time they needed to use it.
Choices, and MORE Choices 18 different models include drastically different designs, and we aren't just talking about the availability of slideouts. Exterior length of the units ranges from 18'7" to 34'3", while the Hitch weight revolves around a measly 316 pounds to a reasonable 740 pounds.
Most of the units by Coachmen come pre-equipped with outside refrigerators, full kitchens, camp kitchens, as well as Tubs, slideouts, one or two beds, bunks and more.

A Few Drawbacks?
The entire series seems to have struck gold with campers. 5 star reviews on multiple models only confirm the buyer satisfaction and unparalleled comfort. Perhaps the only thing that would make it a bit easier for the buyers to decide on which models to choose would be a little more detail about some features.
[However, though Prime Time's website may not offer this information, our experience salesmen know the answer to these questions, so we're happy to answer whatever you have! You can also find more individual pictures of these units on our website.]
For instance, what exactly is the difference between the camp and outdoor kitchens? Even a photo would help, but there doesn't seem to be any exterior photos with those details listed.
With so many variations, it is really necessary to note which models offers what features, or it will take forever to figure out exactly where to focus.
So here are the main distinguishing characteristics of each model.

There is obviously enough variety for everyone to find a model to suit their needs. However, there are a few models that deserve to be noted for families in particular.
Families who want the smallest size that will fit everyone will love the 20.5' 185BH with its with one 54x80" bed, two 30x74' bunks and a tub/shower.
Going larger, though, gets you the 275BH with a separate bedroom, double sized bunk beds, tub/shower and a camp kitchen in 30'11".
The ultimate, however, would be the 289TBSS. Because the bunk room of this unit is separate, and contains a sofa, so it's almost like a playroom for the kids. It still also features the tub/shower and camp kitchen, as well, so, in essence, there is literally nothing left to be desired from this model.
In a nutshell, Coachmen has done an excellent job of providing its customers with everything they've asked for.
