Concur ont the guts and perseverance this took! And, my comments were ready from here behind my computer keyboard.

Awnings are an easy thing to change in future hopefully production runs, as are many of the other cosmetic like items.

I'm still hoping this is showing the skill set and management foundation are in place to attract the investors needed to get things back up. I for one, 3-4 years ago, would not have bet that this coach would exist today. SO GLAD I'M WRONG! And not getting too hung up on some specifics. As what I may not like, maybe exactly what someone else would cut a check for... The key, is being able to also have the ability to 'match' a product with a customer's desire. CC, and Ron, have proven they could do this before...

I like the mid-TV layout, but the cabinetry is only so-so -- I'd prefer it all to be lighter, as well as the exterior colors. And so much grain!

Dual awnings I understand as it can be nice to keep the sun off the sides of the coach regardless of which way it comes from...

I'm also thinking that it might be a touch under engined unless the price is VERY competitive.

Well I can't afford this so I guess it doesn't matter if I like it or not. 😜 But oak? Yuck! I was going too buy a Monaco Dynasty or Diplomat from the 90's but they all had oak, which I can't stand. So glad my rig has maple cabinets. One of the main reasons why I bought it...

While this is not the floor plan or interior colors and woods i would buy I assume Ron Liked it since he built it. When I last talked to them they had several buyers lined up and I would assume different floor plans and colors are available . They have proven they can build it and it will be fun to see it at some of the rv shows and rallies. I hope everyone's successful especially the junction city folks since there economy took such a beating over the last several years.

I would like to know the price point they're trying to hit. 7-800K would be far above what I'd buy one at. At that point you're into a Newmar London Aire or Entegra Cornerstone. With the right discount even a King Aire might be in the running.

Well, I like the layout we have in our 42' Intrigue with the cherry interior. I never did like the small center bath - seems to be a waste of time and space for us. I would purchase an updated version if it ever became available. Of course over the years ours has been updated on everything but the TV locations. As soon as I get the everything up to LED level I will be done - until DW thinks of something new. Of course by the time CC gets everything back up and running I will be to old to drive the darn thing.

I just changed my 46" Sharp (OEM) to 50" Samsung LED UHD. I modified the mounting bracket. It is not up yet, but it fits width wise perfectly and height is shy by about 3/4 of an inch. This only weighs about 27 lbs (probably a third of the weight of the sharp. The old Sharp video was good but no audio. I wonder if anyone else audio problems with Sharp?

What is wrong with Oak?

Between it and Maple the maple is lighter color but is like pine being relatively soft unless hard rock but those not so tough either.

Oak is like working with steel, it is fairly stable and very hard and strong.

The joinery and cutter shapes can make the look be fresh or old.

The wood itself should not matter that much.

For durability, you are right, you can't beat Oak. But some people don't like the looks of it - my wife being one of them. Maple is hard wood, if you like light colors.

On my next coach there are three things I will be looking at. Reliability, reliability and reliability. I don't think I want to be the guy that has the latest and greatest gadgets that you find out two years down the road that they really weren't that good. These forums are full of problems with components that were found to be not that great after a few years in the field. This new coach looks to be solidly built with good components. Wood, curtains, shades are all personal choice and I'm sure can be changed if you want to order a new coach. I would be looking at the guts of this thing rather than the skin.

We were at the debut of the new coach. It appeared that Country Coach was expecting a bigger turnout than they got, they had people serving ice cream and even a guitar player. There were supposed to be talks at 9:00, 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm. The 3:00 pm one was cancelled. There were about 25 people at each of the earlier ones. Many of those were people who were here for service work, us included.

Roin explained that the decor of the new coach was his personal choice as they were building the coach for him and that many other options are available..

It is an impressvie coach, although we don't care for the oak or the bath and a half floor plan..The digital dash and ease of service in the engine compartment are impressive.

I, for one, am thrilled to see CC take this next step toward being a fully-functioning RV manufacturer! I really want to see them succeed, because it would be nice to have a brand built on the West Coast with West Coast Factory service!

Go, Country Coach, GO!!!

It was just a bit too far for us to make it to the open house. We wanted too, but just too many miles. Plan to go in about 10 days. Hope we can still see it.

Does anyone know if the electronic dash is a Silverleaf system?
