We bought our 2019 Coachmen Catalina 243 RBS new. I have to tell you, it's been nothing but problems. First the air conditioner on the roof wasn't tightened down and when it rained, we had to put a bucket under it. The repair shop said they could almost turn it sideways, that's how loose it was. Second issue was rain dripping on us while we were sleeping. The seal in the front where the roof meets the metal needed to be caulked all over. I did that myself. This happened twice. Third, the switch on the power jack went out and I had to replace that. Fourth, the factory didn't caulk one side of the travel trailer. The dealership noticed that when we brought it in to have the air-conditioner tightened. Fifth, one day we noticed they didn't even bother to put trim where the floor and wall meet. They did it in some areas and not others. I would have to say that I am disappointed in the workmanship of this travel trailer. I would tell anyone that is considering buying any travel trailer or RV, to buy one that is a couple of years old. Otherwise it'll sit in the shop half the time getting repairs done.

Overall it is comfortable. Plenty of room to move around. Has one of the largest bedrooms in trailers. Easy to tow with our Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.7L motor. There are three slide outs in this model. We have had leaks in all slides. This has caused the flooring at the interior corners of the coach to deteriorate and cause spongy floors. The slides have been the main issue with this coach. Forest River cannot seem to manufacture a decent seal for the slides. Shame on them. Another issue was the refrigerator. It is an all electric Everchill brand. It does not require propane to operate. This brand does not seem to be reliable. After the refrigerator was replaced for the third time, we finally got a refrigerator that works. The slide motors needed to be replaced. The hitch jack needed to be replaced, the electrical panel needed to be replaced. Awning vinyl is poor quality. Too much junk is used to manufacture these RVs. The parts are not reliable and the manufacture is charging too much for what you are buying. And value for the money? It stinks. Some of the defects were repaired under the warranty period. But the leaky slides and spongy floors were not because they appeared some time after the warranty period expired causing us to pay $$$$$.

Purchased July 2018, has leaked since first rain. Started in bunkroom slide floor. Wet all around corners and side wall. Then 12' dinette and love seat slide started samething. New roof added year later. What that has to do w/slides leaking I still have no idea, and continued to leak after. Bunk room floor started coming away from wall. Collapsing. Dealership pulled slide installed new floor & fixed leaking problem. Still leaked afterward. So far warranty was paying for everything until they weren't. Dealership service got snotty and screwed us over. It was same problem over & over. Stay away from Larry's RV in Illinois. They were great until they weren't. Now while all this was happening, during winter we would get ice and condensation on walls in both slides. Inside. Dehumidifier helps but we still have to be vigilant. That was life for 4yrs. It was only after summer of 2022 that we finally saw relief w/leaking slides. A RV service tech in Indiana tore off rubber seal all around our slides. And until recently, neither slides leaked. The bunkroom still has not. Our 12' dinette and LR slide has started to sag in center. Water has started to leak through our light fixture over dinette and floor on that side under bench seat is also soaking wet. Calling in our RV service tech. Maybe he can wrk his magic again. We happen to be in same area in Indiana. We decided on a new Rig prob around end of year but we may be buyjng sooner. Coachman is owned by Forest River. This is our 2nd FR. Doubt we'll go there again. We do service maintenance once a year w/licensed tech and we routinely do our own maintenance about every 6mo.

All in all poor craftsmanship and not built to last. I bought this camper to save money while traveling the country for work . In the last 5 months I've had to replace all the pex fittings in the bathroom, the Seals in the toilet and the shower walls. The slide out keeps getting out of alignment and the fridge keeps going out. The longer I stay in it the more I notice the poor craftsmanship from the crooked cabinets to the the trim coming undone. I would not recommend this camper.

This trailer has been out of service more than it has been in service. AC has been replaced twice in 1 year. Inverter went bad before 1 year but I was told it was intermittent so they couldn't find the electrical problem, until it of course was out of warranty. At 42k you would think there would be a better warranty than just a year. Not worth the money and will not buy a Coachmen or Forrest River product again. Wished I had passed on this or at least looked at all the reviews. Seems these are common issues.

AC has been replace twice. Bad GE products. Electrical problems and a bad converter. This unit has been in the shop more days than it has been used. Very hard to get dealership and manufacturers on the same page. Was originally told AC could only be replaced once. Was also told it wasn't under warranty. Manufacturer had to clear that up with the dealership. Not worth the over $40k paid for it. Definitely will never purchase any Coachmen or Forrest River product again. Worse experience with any camper in my life.

The overall quality on the Coachman Catalina 333RETS was poor. All of the slides leaked, the paneling under the bed was falling apart, and the living area floor was getting soft from all of the slides leaking. The moldings and trim seemed to be coming loose as time went on. Staples were beginning to come out of some of the trim moldings in the corners and the moldings on the ceiling. It's a shame because it truly was a nicely laid out camper with comfortable features and an abundance of space. In my opinion, this would be a good "destination camper" where it isn't moved much - that would reduce opportunities for leaks.

I am so incredibly disappointed with the construction of this RV. The overall lack of craftsmanship is unbelievable! We have owned this camper since new, purchased August of 2019. We just opened the camper up from a weekend away and found the cabinet above the couch laying down on the couch. The only thing in this cabinet was a few card card games, frisbees and two small water guns, honestly all contents combined weighed less than 15 pounds. Earlier this summer the bottom board under the couch just fell off. I’m not a carpenter but I know enough to know that you can’t expect a 20 pound free standing cabinet in a trailer that moves to be held up with a half in block of wood and 4 small screws that are barely secure.
