I have owned a Coleman Ram-X 15 for around 15 years now. It worked great to load up with fishing/camping gear in Colorado and take long weekend trips. It was very spacious inside and darn near indestructible. These many years later it has held up well and still accommodates myself and the kids dutifully around Florida. It has weathered the years well and travelled with me faithfully from one Army assignment to another. I will often attach a clamp on canoe transom and trolling motor to extend my range and make it easier to take the kids farther (excellent for bass fishing in those hard to get to places). It travels from vehicle to shore well on a canoe cart. I look forward to many more years of use out of the old red canoe. Definitely worth the investment.
