Jim’s Pick: Best Catalina Travel Trailer Floor Plans for Tailgating: Here are our particular favorite Coachmen Catalina floor plans for tailgating:
Coachmen Catalina 293RLDS—one of our favorite interior seating areas we’ve ever seen in a 34’ travel trailer–gathered around a beautiful stone fireplace. There is an outdoor kitchen on this unit, but it’s a little more basic than the other trailers we are featuring in this series. With the 293RLDS, it’s definitely the interior of the trailer that steals the show.
Coachmen Catalina 321 BHDSCK—comes with everything that the Jayco Jay Flight 32 BHDS wows us with—especially the fully loaded outdoor kitchen and the direct bath entry door. We give it an A+. Here’s a YouTube video with a walk-around the exterior of this unit that shows off the outdoor kitchen well.
