Coachmen Clipper 17bh Reviews


The 17BH Clipper Ultra-Lite travel trailer offers double-sized beds and storage above the bed. A convenient galley kitchen offers a two-burner range, a pantry for dry goods, and counter space. The 17BH is the perfect travel trailer for a family of four or a couple who likes to cook. However, it does not come with a shower, gray tank, or air conditioner.

No shower

If you’re looking for a 15-foot-long pull-behind camper with a queen bed and a dinette that converts to a full bed, then this model by Forest River may be right for you. It comes with a full-size bathroom and an overhead microwave. It’s in good condition but not perfect, but it is still great for small families or couples. The interior is clean and has two bunk beds in the rear. The unit is in good condition, but the shower is small. However, the interior is comfortable and has plenty of storage space.

No gray tank

The gray water tank in your travel trailer may smell bad. Fortunately, there are ways to remove odors. The first step is to clean it. Use a solution that breaks down grease and does not foam. Next, drain the gray water tank and rinse it clean. While you are driving, the detergent solution will slosh around. The detergent will also break down any loose materials in the tank.

The black and grey tanks in the Coachmen Clipper 17BH are both large, 25 gallons. Many competitors only have nine gallons. The Coachmen Clipper 17bh comes with roof air units for cooler temperatures, which help to maintain a constant temperature inside the RV. Unfortunately, window air units do not deliver the same level of cooling. Not to mention, they can cause problems with leaking and heating.

The black tank is a separate holding tank for human waste. This waste must be disposed of at an RV dump site. The gray tank, meanwhile, holds wastewater from the RV, such as the water from the sinks. This wastewater also contains some bacteria. If the black tank is full, you may have to take it to a dump site. A gray tank, however, is an integral part of your travel trailer, even on campgrounds. It makes your RV feel more like home.

No air conditioner

The Coachmen Clipper is a 17-foot travel trailer manufactured by the company. The 17BH features a double bed with storage above it. It also has a galley kitchen with a pantry and counter space. The 17BH is designed with privacy in mind, with private bathrooms. You will love that the bathroom is separate from the rest of the trailer. If you are on a tight budget, a 17BH may be your best choice.
