This review is from: Coleman Camping Coffeemaker (Sports)
For those who're unfamiliar with the terminology, "dry camping" is done with an RV utilizing ONLY the resources within the vehicle; without external connections, such as water, electric or sewer.

After reading the heartfelt but negative reviews on Amazon about this coffee maker, I was hesitant to buy it. Fortunately my experience using this coffee maker has been positive. My wife is an early-riser and wants her coffee right away. Usually by 6 a.m. we have the coffee maker brewing in our motorhome. As long as we're at a campsite where there is an electric hook-up our Mr. Coffee, which cost less than half as much as I paid for this one, performs admirably. However, at many of our national parks, national seashores and at many big RV rallies, there are no electric hook-ups or the hook-ups are outrageously expensive. Not only does it seem to be a waste to run our 5.5KW motorhome generator to brew coffee, many of the campgrounds prohibit running generators before 7 or 8... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh brewed, drip coffee in my RV, even when I'm out in the sticks!, June 1, 2017

This is the second one of these I've bought - really like them. Fresh, drip coffee in the RV even when I'm out in the sticks and no shore power. The last one I had started to get rusty at the bottom, but it worked fine until we had the carafe handle pointed the wrong way and melted it. Was looking for a new carafe, but the cost of a whole new unit was only $10 more, so bought that instead. I will keep my eye open for a carafe at Goodwill so I can have the second unit as a spare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colman Coffemaker, May 10, 2017

Love it! Makes an excellent pot of coffee. Perfect for camping (dry or hooked up), use on the inside-trailer propane stove or outside on the Coleman gladiator or grill. The single & minor criticism is that there's no way to keep the pot warm, once the brew is ready the whole coffeemaker comes off the stove. For a keep-the-rest-of-the-pot-hot feature you have to sump it into a metal percolator over a very low flame.
