Over-all, I'm happy with my Explorer DLX 15.5. I had the Coleman Ram-X 15.5 before this. They are the same hull from what I understand. I wish the Pelican had the same seats as the Ram-X. Both my front and rear seats have now broken at the fold. Its a horrible design flaw. The front seat broke taking it off the roof of my van when it hit the ground (not that hard), definitely not abused.
If you own one, do not sit on the front edge of your seat. the center leg may slip and that causes the folds to tear loose.
The seats have to be replaced. There is no way to fix the old ones. Waiting to hear if the seats are available, as the DLX 15.5 has been discontinued...
