The 32 I drove (I only drove it 130 miles) was not all over the rod like some people say, even with the side winds experienced in the Banning Pass between the CA desert and Orange County.

There are downsides to a 32 CC but then again, there are downsides to any 32
this is closer to what I was wondering...I wouldn't know as I have never drove one....but that being said they seem to get very good reviews from the people that actually own them...

the very very best riding and handling coach ever to me has been the old p30 chassis gm...there very worst being the new design 1999 ford super duty f53...

the first series work horse,8.1 wider independant suspension was the absolute best there has ever been...plenty of power and they rode smooth..

I used to buy those motorhomes and do nothing but a davis tru track bar..

my son has a older p30 flair.... I can't believe how well it rides and handles..

way better than any diesel pusher I have ever owned... it is totaly un effected by things like tar strips and concrete highways...

it did have a little side sway, but that pretty much went away with the add of sumo's on the rear...

still would like to hear from some one that has the 32'r from CC...or at least used to own one....

I would think that there is some thing there to get all the great reviews and comments that they get..

In 2004 we bought a new 33' 2004 Allure Seaside. I drove that coach for 120,000 miles in eight years before trading it for my current coach. The 33' drove and handled just fine. Not as good as the Wanderlodge I used to own or the Magna I have now. But there is simply no reason not consider the short CCs if you are so inclined. We loved ours.

Good luck with your decision.
