This is a perfect portable grill that also works well as a medium size fixed setup grill. It stores in a small space, transports on its own wheels and setups up quickly. The grill is a heavy iron Teflon coated surface. Over the burners, the surface is full metal, so there is no chance of flare ups from grease. There is a grease tray for easy cleanup and the grill is remove and clean. If you are using it as a portable, you can use the regular small gas cartridge. There is also a kit to use full size propane cylinders. For a portable grill this has a large surface and I've cooked enough for 4 people easily. Lighting the grill is easy. The burners seem quite sturdy and have not rusted after many years of use. I suppose this is due to the way the grill keeps grease off the burners.

I have my grill on my lanai in Florida. It is a perfect size and works extremely well. I had 6 lamb chops and 4 filets on the grill at the same time and they came out perfectly! A great buy for the money!

I bought this generator to use when we lost power. I had a pole barn built and It doesn’t have power so I use it quite often. This generator is about 10 years old. A great product. Starts on the first. Couldn’t ask for more.

**BUYER’S BEWARE. *Horrible customer service, *horrible return policy (15% restocking fee), *non existent exchange and or replacement options on items delivered damaged and they have a *VERY high volume of complaints filed through the BBB. I bought a 3,300 dollar bedroom set online from Coleman’s a few weeks ago. They called us the day after Thanksgiving and told us it was going to be delivered a 5pm that Sunday. Of course we were out of town for the Holiday weekend and weren’t expecting them to deliver for a couple more weeks. We made it a point to be back home by 3pm on Sunday so we were able to clean out a few item from our bedroom and make room for the new furniture.

2.5 hrs before our scheduled delivery time we got a call that they were at our house (which we were still 20 mins away from home). They waited for us to arrive home but were in a big hurry to leave and we had no time to get the rest of the items out of the bedroom so we just told them to leave the bedroom set in the garage and we would haul it in and put it together ourselves. The dressers and nightstands were already put together but the headboard, footboard, etc. were in boxes so we visually couldn’t tell if they were damaged at the time of delivery.

For some stupid reason the delivery personnel put the headboard on its side instead of upright (so the weight was on the legs of the headboard). When we open up the headboard box we were of course disappointed to find the headboard was damaged. We contacted Coleman’s to make them aware of the issue and they *said that they will not replace damage headboard, *will charge us a 15% restocking fee if we return, *and told us to find furniture repair person on our own (which is hard because we live in a very rural area and we sent photo’s to a couple and they said damage can not be repaired) and on top of that we have *5 days to return item which gives us no time to try to hunt down someone to see if they can repair.

So I just spent 3,300 dollars to receive damaged furniture that I am stuck with, that is CRAZY and a horrible disservice to paying customers. **Recommend purchasing furniture from a store that has better policies, ethical and moral values and doesn’t repeatedly screw over customers (VERY high volume of complaints through the Better Business). The positive reviews on their online website are beyond fake, any where else you look it is horrible reviews. When I left a negative review on the FB page they removed it and blocked me.

Remarkably terrible customer service. Have no idea if their products work, since what was shipped to us wasn't a tent at all. It's been a month dealing with trying to get this done. Told several times the tent is on the way, then told they can't, then told it's on the way. OK. Lemme know if you all want to get this figured out. Leaving negative reviews everywhere I can find until this gets sorted.

Oh, and your chat support is absolute garbage. The people working that are gaming your system and not helping people. Chat support agents Myrryll Joy, Ryan Jay and Deniece Anne are some of your employees who are gaming this system. Sat waiting for a response from Deniece Anne for 30 minutes, then she disconnected, then Myrryll joined and disconnected after 3 minutes. Got Myrryl again on my 4th draw. She just disconnected me. Cool. This was supposed to be a wedding gift, so my family, and her family and the people who gave the gift will all be weighing in on this. What the heck Coleman, get it together... Ticket: **.

Update: Myrryl is the rudest customer service rep I've ever dealt with. She purposely tried to make me feel stupid, used all caps when she was frustrated, and just needs better training. Please look through our logs. She's arguing with me about a situation that is already resolved. You all should be embarrassed having someone like that represent you.

I called to order replacement poles for what the company deemed a "legacy" tent (no longer manufactured). The rep was very helpful and helped me find the needed poles. Again, I ordered "replacement poles." In my mind, replacement poles means the poles will be an absolute match to what I originally received with my tent.

However, when they arrived, the poles were not assembled. I called and was told that that's how they come. When I explained that I was not able to assemble them, the customer service rep was basically "too bad." I stated that at no point was I told that I was receiving a 'kit.' She acknowledged that was a problem with their system and they would address it. I asked to return the poles and was told I would need to cover return shipping. When I stated that I feel the error was theirs -- a fact she acknowledged in stating they'd address the system -- she was basically "too bad." So their error is my expense. I've owned Coleman tents for over 30 years and have purchased for my children. Never again.

Bought 2 of these lanterns after 2 of our old Coleman lanterns were stolen. Put them on the shelf. Didn't need to use them as no hurricanes here in southeast Florida lately. Went to start them up. No go. I have had Coleman lanterns for years with excellent results. Apparently they have defective fuel assemblies with a leak. Tried to get help from Coleman. Customer service is useless. Do not know their product. Ordered new fuel assemblies. Same thing. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO REBUILD A BRAND NEW PRODUCT!!!! STILL DOES NOT WORK!!!

I purchased a PowerChill Thermoelectric cooler from Coleman about 3 months ago and a month after purchasing the fan stopped working on the cooler. I called the 800 number and I said that they were not making those type of coolers anymore that they would give me a refund but all I can get is lies out of this company. Very dissatisfied. I would advise anyone not to purchase anything from Coleman. You have to deal with people from a foreign country and I will not help you at all. I had to give one star to get my review on here but I would not give them any stars. This is a horrible company!!!!

I own three Coleman camping products and all 3 are excellent, though my Big Basin sleeping bag is untried. I recently retired a Coleman Bi Space 300 tent because I wanted more head space in the sleeping compartment to take a camp bed. Otherwise apart from a couple of patches, the tent was excellent. I researched and bought a Coastline 3 from a major distributor. This was last September. I used it on only three nights since. Two in October last year and one this week. The latest nights camping in this coastline was a disaster. The zipper above both side doors leaked like a sieve and the closure was so difficult to make, I thought it would come apart. I had to abandon at 2.0 am and drive home. Coleman offered no explanations, but referred me to the retailer.

Coleman are losing the plot with these cheap and nasty Chinese imports. The quality, design, workmanship and customer services is rubbish. I was so disappointed and now face another big expenditure. What is wrong with Coleman to market such poor tents? They had a winner with the Bi Space. It was so well made. Rest assured, I would not consider another Coleman.

While camping I fell and the tent door pole was broken in the process. I contacted Coleman and they asked for a bunch of info. After a week of not hearing back from them I called and they asked me for some more information. After another week of not hearing back I finally called again and they told me they no longer have that pole and would not replace the pole. So after 2 weeks of waiting and fighting the frustration, I finally went through a 3rd party to buy the pole myself. The tent was still under warranty and the pole should have been replaced free of charge. I am not happy with the service I received. I love Coleman and their products. I have a lot of different items, but the customer service I received could have been way better. If you break a tent pole, avoid the hassle of the customer service department and go to and they will help you out. Sorry this is long, I am just frustrated. Hope this helps someone.

I will never purchase another Coleman product, they no longer care about the customer. We spent $250 on what we thought was a great, high quality screen tent. Used it on vacation four times over two years. Second year camping with it, setting it up, one of the poles cracked, the fiberglass rod split. We were able to duct tape it to get the shelter up to use it. Second night there was a serious storm, which normally would have been fine, except that it was structurally flawed and wound up collapsing, which caused three more poles to break completely -- rendering the screen shelter useless to us.

I contacted Coleman via their 800 number, talked to someone with an Indian accent (in 2019, who else would you expect to reach?). I explained the situation politely and asked for replacement poles, but was told they do not carry poles for it anymore. The best they could do was offer me a 15% discount towards a new one. --> WE SPENT $250 and used it 4 times!!! <-- NFW!! ! I insisted this was not satisfactory. They *finally* offered to do a 40% discount on a new one!!! BUT the failure It was not our fault, the product FAILED with normal setup and use! And it was like new still. Coleman used to back its products up and the customer was more important than a measly $250 to them - they are a global corporation, right? I will never give that company another penny... Do not spend your money with Coleman, as they will not back up their products. Never again.

In May, I purchased a sleeping bag and paid $47.66. I added $20.95 (almost 50% more) for expedited shipping because it was for a grandchild's birthday and important to me that it arrive on-time. Des it did not. I have been on the phone three times previously to have the $20.95 refunded. Each time, it took at least 20 minutes, and, each time, I was promised a refund on my credit card. Still nothing despite my last call with a supervisor.

I am currently on hold again. I requested the contact for their legal department; They refuse to provide that. At this point, it isn't even about the $20.95. It is the principal and the poor customer service. They are hoping that I will give up. If that happens with even a small percentage of their customers, imagine the windfall for them. There are plenty of other companies who sell similar merchandise; purchase from one of them instead.

The Coleman Oak Point sleeping bag was well rated on NYT Wirecutter. I found only Big and Tall version on most websites, which wouldn’t work for my 5’1” daughter. But on Coleman website, it looked like they were selling the standard bag. So the title stated. Or rather, did not state it was the larger item. So I ordered it. Lo and behold, a Big and Tall bag arrived at my door. So I called Coleman. The representative advised me that I had to pay the return shipping to get a refund. That did not seem right, as it wasn’t my error. I also calculated it would cost me $27. On a 50.00 item, which was mistakenly sent.

Ok, so two days later, I try their online chat. Rep agrees to help me find suitable bag for my daughter. Suggests several which are cheaper, but says they will refund difference. I find one that is same price and agree to the exchange. That was five days ago. Nothing has happened. The rep sent me an email asking for my address before he could make it happen. I sent the info. Guess they don’t like where I live? I sent emails asking for status update, yesterday, and now today. Still waiting....

Coleman Furniture has now made 2 attempts to fulfill our order for a gorgeous bed. The first time, the delivery company arrived with no parts. (2 weeks later) The second time, the delivery company said that the footboard was held back at the warehouse because it was damaged. I'm fairly sure they lost the original parts as well. I have asked for a full refund as we have yet to receive a complete order and I do not want the delivery company they use anywhere near our home again. Both experiences were awful. Coleman wants us to pay a 15% restocking fee for "return" of the item. Please note that Coleman, Renegade Furniture, TOV are all one and the same. I am disgusted to say the least.

I purchased a Coleman 424 stove, but the generator didn't work very well. The store where I bought the stove went bankrupt, so nowhere to go for warranty and no other local store could help me sufficiently. After a short call with Coleman Benelux with good advice, they sent me a new generator to my home address. After having used my previous 424 stove for over 15 years, I'm confident that I will enjoy the coming decade(s) with summer holidays with my excellent stove. A happy customer here!

Bought the pool and approx 1 month later the pump went, Took the pump back to where I bought it thinking that they would just replace the pump. No that wasn't going to happen. They wanted me to return the whole pool. I live in a city where we pay for every drop of water and it runs just under 200.00 to fill the pool. Instead I just bought a better pump and ate the cost of the old one (which was only 1 month old). Well getting ready for this year our pools 2nd year, it has now sprung a leak around the windows and in this condition is useless. So very disappointed...

I placed an order a week ago and noticed on the order confirmation that I had been charged 10% state sales tax; however, our state sales tax is only 4%. I have now called on three different occasions with no resolution. I've been told someone will call me back, but that never happens. I sit here today waiting for yet another promised call back and I don't even know if they sent my order through because I have not seen a shipping notification. Unacceptable.

Ordered 3 bed sets and 1 sofa sectional. Waited weeks for our furniture and when they delivered they brought the one set we canceled. Only got one bed set. Turns out they had my daughters bed set on the delivery truck and told us they’d deliver Tuesday. Come Tuesday we got a call the truck broke down. Then we lost our patience and asked why it couldn’t be delivered the next day or why they couldn’t at this point rent a truck for the day. We got nowhere and ended up hanging up in frustration. Called Today (Friday) to see what time the bedset and sectional we’re going to be delivered only to be told a new delivery date hadn’t been set up. This is the worst runaround we’ve ever gotten from any company. Still waiting and it’s been a month.

In 5 years the floor seams perished and when I have asked for a replacement or repair from Coleman, neither are possible leaving me with a serviceable main body of canoe with no floor that is essential for its functioning. Producing an expensive product like this there should be adequate support to keep the product going and this is not available and I have been met with a brick wall of silence after the initial reply saying that they can't help.

I ordered a small burner and a few other products online and to be shipped to where I currently am in Idaho. After 3 days, I receive an email saying that they cannot ship. It took 3 calls to Coleman Customer Service to get through to someone competent enough to tell me my order was compromised. The final rep helped me by honoring my request to cancel my order. This was my first time oi ordering directly from Coleman and I will never be purchasing from their website again since they asked that I take a picture of my original order since they "did not have this information". As a data security specialist, this means Coleman is unable to properly handle client data including financial records. I canceled my order. I will most likely still order the product I wanted, but I will order it through Amazon where I know my order will be properly and expeditiously fulfilled.

I ordered a tent from Coleman on July 11th, 2018 and paid $30.95 extra for two day shipping. The tent was to be shipped to a KOA in North Carolina to be waiting for us when we arrived on Sunday the 15th. It was not to be found when we arrived at the campground. It finally showed up on Monday, the 16th and we refused the shipment. I waited patiently for the refund to show up on my credit card, but by the 31st of July it still had not credited. I called the company and was told the credit would appear when the tent was returned. I advised them it had been over two weeks and the tent must be there by now.

After waiting on hold for 15 minutes the "customer service representative" (ha ha) advised me that, indeed, they did find the tent in the back corner of a warehouse! Now it has been 10 days since that conversation and still no refund. I did get an email stating they would not refund shipping charges since they had shipped in the "correct time frame." Amazon, and most every other shipper defines 2 day shipping as order on Monday, receive on Wednesday. Last time I'll deal with Coleman. Their phone message on hold tells about how wonderfully Mr. Coleman built his business on trust and quality.

Updated on 08/14/2018: Refund on the way; 8/10 employee says refund will process in 3-5 days; 8/14 still processing refund-wait another 3-5 days. Our experience with Coleman has been most disappointing!

Updated on 08/21/2018: Now it's 35 days later and still no refund. Do not do business with Coleman directly. Their Shipping is in Kansas, their warehouse is in Illinois, and their accounting is in Indiana. They have no idea nor control over their business.
