Frequently Asked Questions

Does the new Somerset camping trailer organization have any affiliation with Fleetwood Folding Trailers, Inc., or FTCA, Inc.?

Besides Columbia Northwest’s geographical proximity to the former folding trailer manufacturer in Somerset, PA, there is no affiliation between the two companies.  However, Columbia Northwest did hire many of the key personnel that lost their jobs when the former folding trailer manufacturer in Somerset, PA closed the operation in January of 2011. 

Why should I consider purchasing a Somerset camping trailer over another brand?

When Columbia Northwest hired the former Fleetwood Folding Trailer key employees, they inherited over 152 years of manufacturing experience from the world’s most successful folding trailer operation.  The manufacturing techniques and processes that made the Coleman Camping Trailer the best built and longest lasting camping trailer in the folding trailer industry are now being incorporated into the new Somerset product line.

How can I obtain Somerset Camping Trailer parts?

Parts for all Somerset products are distributed exclusively by authorized Somerset dealers.  For the Somerset dealer nearest you, enter your zipcode in the “Dealer Locator” in the top right corner and click "Find a Dealer".  Be sure to have the vehicle identification number (VIN) when contacting the dealer for parts.

What size hitch do I need for a Somerset Camping Trailer?
