The Coleman brand name returned to the Louisville Show with the introduction of the trend-setting Coleman Switchback, a 600-pound folding camping trailer from FTCA Inc. that in the travel mode can carry bikes, kayaks and other small gear. “The Switchback is our entrant into an emerging marketplace – a sport utility camping trailer that allows you to take your sports with you,” said Dana Gehman, manager of product development and marketing for the Somerset, Pa., company which until May was owned by Fleetwood Enterprises Inc., and carried the Fleetwood brand name. The brightly colored Switchback is available in one 6-foot floorplan with two beds and a 3 foot by 5 foot metal wire front deck to store gear. The two foldout beds feature zippered privacy curtains and mesh ceilings with flaps over each bed that open to the sky. MSRP: around $4,000.
