Adrenaline’s greatness starts with its foundation. The six-layer vacuum bonded floor features two layers of luan, one layer of high-density block foam insulation, one layer of welded aircraft-grade aluminum framing, one layer of energy brace substrate, and one layer of floor brace moisture resistant sheathing. In simple terms, the floor is three times stronger than most of the floors you see in toy haulers. The Adrenaline is equipped with Dexter Axle E-Z-Lube, Dexter Axle E-Z-Lube Flex Suspension, and Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust Brakes. Adrenaline’s sidewalls are made with Azdel composite panels, which blend polypropylene with fiberglass to create a strong and lightweight sidewall. The panels are 50% lighter than wood panels, and resistant to rot and mold.
The Coachmen Adrenaline is guaranteed to attract attention on the road. Its 14” aluminum wheels are equipped with D-rated radial tires. The power awning comes with a modern LED light strip, and the rain gutters come with extended drip sprouts. For your convenience and safety, the radius entrance and baggage doors are equipped with slam latches, and the key lock ramp door has a bar latch. The coachmen Adrenaline features an electric tongue jack and four-point manual stabilizer jacks. If you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint, you’ll be happy about the solar prep. When you’re ready to go inside, just walk up the three-step entry (LED lights included) and hold on to the deluxe entry door assist handle.

Walking in, you’re immediately drawn to the warm décor. The windows soak in lots of natural light, and the classic shaker style cabinets add elegance to the space. Designer Carefree flooring looks like hardwood, except it’s easier to maintain. Tech addicts will be grateful for the USB charging ports, located in various locations throughout the toy hauler. The living area shares the space with the kitchen, featuring comfy leather recliners, a 40” Jensen LED television and Jensen AM/FM/DVD/MP3 Bluetooth stereo (equipped with app control).
There is ample space to store your cooking essentials. Aside from an eight-cubic-foot Norcold refrigerator, there is a pantry, overhead cabinetry and drawers with Easy Glide full extension ball bearing drawer guides. You can cook dinner on the three-burner cooktop or heat it in the convection microwave. Thermofoil counter tops are spacious and easy to wipe, and the large double bowl sinks comes in handy when you’re washing dishes and rinsing veggies.

The Adrenaline bathroom is larger than most toy hauler bathrooms. With lots of room to groom and wash, the bathroom features a tub with surround, porcelain foot flush toilet and medicine cabinet above the sink.
When it’s time to call it a night, just head over to the bedroom. Located opposite of the cargo area, the bedroom is your quiet oasis, providing you with privacy and comfort. There’s a beautiful wardrobe on each side of the Queen bed, giving you ample storage space for your clothes. If you like watching TV before nodding off, you’ll be happy about the bedroom TV hookup. If you plan on inviting guests for sleepovers, you can pay extra for an additional Queen-size electric bed in the cargo area.
The Coachmen Adrenaline Toy Hauler 26CB sells for around $45,000. For more information, visit http://www.coachmenrv.com/.
