Yes, I believe someone above posted photos of them adding a rear receiver where one could add a bicycle mount... Pretty sure they sacrificed the pull out step.

I posted pics of a 2" rear receiver tube tube I added to mine. Unfortunately all of my pics in this thread have been deleted as the site that hosted them changed its format. I will try to replace them in this thread but I don't find this forum to be the easiest to work with when it comes to posting pics.

EDIT - And, yes, I removed the rear steps. It was necessary to fit the receiver and it cut the weight by 16.5 lbs. We use a plastic step instead.

I added a hitch receiver to my Clipper. As mentioned above I had to remove the rear steps. I use the receiver mainly for a t-bar for my kayak rack. I also built it to reinforce the frame.

Hello,

Have a 2021 Clipper and so far so great as this is all new to me. I would like to upgrade the stock battery. We would like to do more camping on nonelectric sites. recommendations? We did try Nature's Generator (Solar generator) and it was pretty much useless. We are in search of another solar generator brand.

Thank you

You may have already found a solution but I have had great luck using portable solar panels and solar controller. I never plug my Clipper in and the solar maintains the battery well even when camping. I built a rack to hold then on the tongue and they kinda conform around the front.

Hello all..
New member here in need of some help.
I have a 2020 Clipper 9.0TD that I am fixing up and have one pressing issue currently. I had to redo the roof and I do not know exactly where the brackets that hold the one end of the lift strut go on the roof.
Would you be able to get a measurement from the rear of the roof to the rear edge of the bracket please?

Hi, I started experiencing wood rot on my 2020 viking around the edges from the inside.
At first i thought i may have had a leak with the pipes or water tank. As i started to rip up the subfloor in the corner, i noticed this was extending all around the camper, thankfully it was raining and i was able to pinpoint where the water was coming from. It turns out, on the outside metal frame, it was never sealed and water is just seeping inside. Anyone else experience this?

I'm not sure if this thread is still active, but I thought it'd be worth asking. I bought a 2020 Clipper 9.0TD last week. I'm super excited to use it. I'm sorting out a couple issues. The over bed lights, counter light, and stereo do not have 12v power. Does anyone know if these are on the same circuit? or wire routing? I have power at the 12v fuse panel to all fuses. The furnace works. I emailed Coachmen asking for a wiring diagram, but I'm not expecting a response.
Thanks

There is a button that gets engaged and disengaged when you open/close the camper. it's made to shutoff the circuit when you have the camper closed up. Mine is located on the left side, i noticed that sometimes it doesn't disengage and i have to manually depress it to get power. See if that works for you.
