The Coleman Lantern LT 17B is a brand new light weight 17 ft. single axle bunkhouse trailer that is exclusively built for and sold at Camping World locations across the county.

Like most single axle trailers on the market, the Coleman Lantern LT 17B comes from the manufacturer equipped with a single 20 pound propane tank at the front of the trailer. A single 20 pound propane tank means that the Coleman 17B is equipped with the smaller 2 burner stove top rather than the 3 burners that you'll find in the Coleman's larger counter parts.

At the front of the trailer, just before the battery tray, you'll find that the Coleman 17B is coming from Dutchmen with a small portable solar prep.

In place of the small 3.3 cubic refrigerator, Dutchmen included an upgraded 12 volt refrigerator that is able to run off of your 12 volt trailer battery. The refrigerator includes temperature control as well as a small icebox freezer at the top of the fridge.

One feature that really caught our eye was the fireplace. Dutchmen, in the interest of conserving as much propane as possible, removed the traditional propane furnace and has added a 5,200 BTU electric fireplace underneath the kitchen countertop. The fireplace comes equipped with temperature control. The downside to the fireplace is that you need to be plugged into an RV compatible generator in order to run it.

The sleeping capacity is what really sells this trailer. At only 21 foot and 5 inches of total over length, the Coleman Lantern LT 17B boasts a whopping 5-6 person sleeping capacity with sleeping on the front queen bed, the dinette and of course the rear bunks.

The rear bunks measure in at 72 inches of length, 29 inches of width and have a 300 pound sleeping capacity per bunk.

The dinette is technically a single person sleeper but can fit two small children if need be.

The Coleman 17B's dinette measures in at about 70 inches long and 41 inches wide. At 41 inches wide, the Coleman 17B is one of the wider seating dinettes that you'll actually find in a small single axle trailer.

I’m interested in purchasing an RV in the future. I heard o the NLCS that a SUV could pull this RV. I own a 2015 Titanium Ford Edge. What type of vehicle do I need? Thank you

    steve - October 21, 2020

    Towing Max for your vehicle is 3500 with the tow package. This is pushing the limit considering you will be including extra weight is gear and supplies. Also a sway bar would be a must along with your brake controller. Jayco makes a 145 nicely equipped that comes in around 2500 lbs! Should keep shopping.

      admin - October 23, 2020

      That 2,500 lb dry weight will vary slightly depending on whether or not your purchase the 145RB with or without the Baja Package and 13,500 BTU AC in place of the 8,000 BTU.
      You can check out our Jayco Jay Flight SLX 145RB review for a little more info!

Is this model available with a conventional heater other than the “fireplace” thing? Thanks.

Steve - October 21, 2020

Is this model available with a conventional heater other than the “fireplace” thing? Also the frig, really just 12 volt? I need a conventional gas/electric unit. Thanks.

    admin - October 23, 2020

    As of now, the Coleman 17B is equipped with the 5,200 BTU electric fireplace and 12 refer with no options of switching out either. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes!

Geoff & Carol Ahrens - October 28, 2020

The furnace/fireplace can be run on the campground 30 amp electric? It does not come with a battery or spare tire?
Thanks Geoff

    admin - November 14, 2020

    Correct, the fireplace will run off of the 30 amp hook up.
    It is prepped for a battery but it doesn’t come equipped with a battery or spare tire from the manufacturer.

Francisca - November 5, 2020

It gets really cold where we camp are the water tanks heater or insulated so they don’t freeze

    admin - November 14, 2020

    The Coleman LT 17B is not a four seasons trailer. I’d be careful with taking it in freezing temperatures as your tanks are likely to freeze over.

emilio javier - January 20, 2021

since there is no spare tire, you have to buy it yourself. does anybody know the size of the radial tires

Matt - February 21, 2021

Does this trailer have trailer brakes?

Bob - February 25, 2021

I just bought but have not used my 17B trailer. I use a cpap and when camping with no electricity I hook up an inverter to a 12V battery to power the cpap. We will be using our trailer for a 6 week trip and I’m wondering if the only way to charge the battery is with a generator? Thanks

Sheri Maxwell - March 30, 2021

What is the hitch weight

darla earnest - April 7, 2021

Is the queen mattress a short mattress or regular size queen? Thank you!

Becky - August 23, 2021

Looking into solar panels for this model. How many watts are required for different functions. I would like to charge the batter and run the refigerator. Watts required…

What about the heater/air conditioner.

Yes, we are also looking into a generator, but really the refigerator & battery charge are the important thing when dry camping.


Bennett Moeller - August 26, 2021

Do you know how high the top bunk is from the floor? I’m wondering if I could take the bottom bunk out and make it into a small living space for my daughter underneath the top bunk, which she would sleep on..

Jason - October 9, 2021

Does anyone know the length of the shelf beside the bed we’re getting ready to purchase one and I was thinking on that be a good place to maybe put a couple shelves with the TV above it on on the one we’re buying the TV outlet is on that side at the top but I was just wondering the length of that shelf and the width

Jason - October 9, 2021

We haven’t done a walk-through yet but I was just wondering if the toilet works connected to your vehicle or is that something that needs to be connected to a power source we’re new to this so I was just wondering if if the toilet worked connected to your vehicle thanks

David - November 23, 2021

Just bought the 2022! This thing is so amazing, the manufacturing plant in Pendleton, Oregon won’t be able to keep up at 4 sold per weekend 👍🏼

Donald Hughes - December 27, 2021

Bought 2021 coleman 17b in 2020 fireplace already went out and they say im not covered. Bullshit. Never again from camping world

Alix Hoffman - January 13, 2022

Bought a new 2021 Coleman Lantern 17b. Used it 4 weekends. Plumbing leaks. Rear bumper has to be replaced due too a broken weld. Best of all, the roof has to be replaced due too cracks and rot. Great beginning to camping. I think we are done with the camping thing.

    Rene Agredano - January 14, 2022

    Sorry about that Alix! Don’t give up. Get those things fixed and go have fun. Even expensive RVs need repairs. At least your repairs are still under warranty (I hope!).

    Rebecca Hughes - January 15, 2022

    Agreed with other poster – even higher end brand new campers/RV’s tend to require repairs, etc during the first year. But roof cracks/rot seem out of the ordinary for a new camper.
