It can be challenging to find parts for a Coleman pop up camper since these RVs have not been made for several years. The key to finding the parts you need lies with finding a parts supplier that can help you source currently available parts that will work in your particular model.
Four Places to Find Coleman Folding RV Parts
Beckley's Camping Center
Beckley's Camping Center is a Maryland-based RV dealer that also operates ColemanPopUpParts.com. According to their website, "When Coleman/Fleetwood Folding Campers went out of business, Beckley's was able to secure their entire parts inventory." This makes them an excellent resource for sourcing difficult-to-find parts for these recreational vehicles.
You can visit their location in Maryland or purchase parts from their website if you know what you are looking for. You can also call 800-598-4048 to speak with a parts expert for assistance.
Orders are shipped UPS ground, except for keys, which are shipped via the U.S. postal service. Shipping to both U.S. and Canadian destinations is available. A return merchandise authorization (RMA) number is required for all returns.
Ketelson Campers is a Colorado-based RV dealer and parts supplier that carries a selection of replacement parts for Coleman folding campers. Their website has downloadable parts books for all Coleman pop up models that provide details on all repairable parts on these campers, including specific parts numbers.
You can visit their store in Denver or purchase parts online if you know exactly what you need. You can also speak with a parts department representative for help identifying parts that will work on your RV. If they don't have what you need in inventory, they can order it for you. Restocking fees may apply.
Online purchases are shipped directly from the distributor, so don't assume that you can find everything in the store that shows in the online catalog. Call the store at 303-431-2211 to verify availability if you are planning to shop in person.
If you are looking for replacement canvas for your folding Coleman camper, Pop-Up Parts is a great resource. When you go to their website, make sure you are in the Coleman/Fleetwood section of the canvas replacements menu to begin your search. Click the year of your camper, then select the specific model to see the options available for purchase.
You can purchase directly from the website. Choices include a complete canvas, as well as individual components, including side panels, bunk panels and window panels. Replacement canvases are drop-shipped directly from suppliers. Expect delivery to take between 12 and 16 weeks. Order carefully, as there is a 15% restocking fee.
While there is no guarantee that you'll be able to find the parts you need on eBay, it is a good place to look. Of course, on eBay, availability can vary greatly and change frequently. Some items are available as buy-it-now items while others must be purchased through an auction.
As you should do any time you are shopping via an auction site, ask questions before bidding or making a purchase if you are not certain that the product meets your needs. Look very closely at the product to be sure it meets your needs and check the seller's ratings.
Be sure that you are aware of any shipping charges and the seller's return policy before making a purchase (or bid) decision.
Network With Other Owners
Getting to know other camping enthusiasts who also own Coleman pop ups can be a great way to find additional resources or to locate particularly scarce items. Forums like PopUpPortal.com and PopUp Explorer can help you connect with like-minded people who may have helpful information to share and who may also benefit from your knowledge of pop up replacement parts resources. Replacement parts for Coleman folding travel trailers are likely to become more difficult to locate, so having an online resource network may prove to be invaluable over time.
