Fleetwood/Coleman stopped manufacturing 
popup campers in January 2011



Columbia Northwest aquired the designs and 
introduced a new line of pop-ups named Somerset

In September 2011 Somerset by Columbia Northwest announced they:
  • Aquired the designs from Fleetwood/Coleman
  • Staffed the company with key former employees of Fleetwood/Coleman 
  • Used nearly the same design and many common unique parts like Fleetwood/Colemans
  • Named the "Somerset" camper line after the legacy of quality, built by the Fleetwood / Coleman plant in Somerset, PA
Common parts may be available if still carried in the new models of Somerset Campers
Older unique parts no longer used in new models are not available from Somerset.
Check with your nearest Somerset dealer if they can obtain the part you need

Somerset camping trailers are built with many of the same component parts that were used in the construction of folding trailers produced by Fleetwood Folding Trailers, Inc. and FTCA, Inc.  While Columbia Northwest is not purposely planning to become a distributor for historical folding trailer parts, there will be parts available to dealers that can be retrofitted for use on Coleman and Fleetwood folding trailers.  Contact your nearest Somerset dealer to inquire about parts availability. Parts available spring 2012. 



Alternate Sources for Fleetwood / Coleman Parts 
Not stocked by Somerset / Columbia Northwest
  • Most parts are generic, used by many brands of campers, and can be purchased from companies that supply the same parts to all RV manufacturers.  
  • First check with your former Fleetwood/Coleman dealer, or a Somerset Dealer, or another brand dealer, to see if they can obtain a generic part or similar part from a  manufacturer, that will fit your Fleetwood/Coleman camper.
  • Some parts might become manufactured by after-market companies.  
  • Some unique parts might need to be custom made or fabricated in the future, if a unique part breaks.   
  • Many popup camper owners are experienced in fabricating parts, and often fabricate better parts than the original as they seek to modify their campers for the better.
  • Local machine shops may be able to fabricate a part if the owner is not able to do so alone.
  • Aftermarket companies manufacturing parts for Fleetwood / Colemans are listed below.



Identify the Part that you are looking for with a clear part name.  

You can search for a part easier with a clear part name, 
rather than calling it a "Thingy" that attaches to a "What-cha-ma-call-it".

Ebay Seller of Fleetwood/Coleman "Lift System Trim" Part

This is a part that breaks easily from stress of the canopy against this part, 
when the canopy becomes filled with water, 
because during setup you did not slant the canopy at an angle 
so rain would not collect inside the canopy.




Coleman lift trim plate
This Ebay member is making replacement trim plates for the Fleetwood/Coleman pop up camper
The kit contains one plate and two rivets .
The plates are available in two thickness of aluminum
One is 0.060 thick and the other is 0.080 thick
The original plate was made out of 0.030 thick material and has
a folded reinforcement on it.
Replacement plates are made out of thicker material and do not have a folded section.
The original plates came with two hole placements
One the hole is ¾ inch from the bottom edge .
The second is 3/8 inch from the bottom edge



Here is a photo of my own (CamperFamily1's) Lift Trim that broke when water collected in the canopy.
Notice the crack in the lift trim.
I had to replace it with a new part, which had the holes drilled in the wrong place, requiring me to drill new holes in my camper.
The Ebay seller has two hole sizes so you don't have to redrill holes.   Be sure to remove the old part and measure to see which part you need before ordering.

Bed Rail Wedges
Manufactures the plastic part on the end of the bed rail that nudges the bed rail into the proper place.
Their replacement part is aluminum and better than the original!

See this post for a solution in case your rollers/rails are out of adjustment, causing the BedWedgie to rub against the rail creating friction and wear on the rail.

Did 30 years in what was the largest RV factory in USA in the small town of Somerset PA.  Probably worked on your camper if it is a Coleman / Fleetwood.

Best Practices on How to Fabricate Common Parts for Fleetwood/Coleman Popup Campers


First check with Midland RV, listed above, or your nearest Somerset dealer to see if they have a similar pole.

An idea of how to replace broken "Bed Bows" and "Shepherds Poles" 

Build your own out of 3/4" Rigid (bendable) conduit pipe, investing in a conduit bender from Lowes below:



With 3/4" Rigid (bendable) Conduit

Bend to the same contour as your old one.
Squeeze the ends in a strong vise and drill holes as needed.
Then paint it to match the correct color.
Install.

Seems like a fun challenge.

Or hire an electrician for an hour to bend the poles like your old pole, then do the rest yourself.


Make your own parts with a cast and moldable plastic

Buy "Cast & Paint PerfectCast", to create a mold from your old part on the other side of the bumper.

On Amazon, also available at Joannes

Using the Cast, make your own replacement part out of Insta-Morph

Here is the link on Amazon.
