Yes they are, yet when we pulled in to leave the Magna out in Ridgefield WA to have the broken shocks replaced guess what pulled in right beside us? Yep, one of the few Prevost CC conversions, no slides either. We didn't get a chance to talk to the owner though.

Mr. D
Have you found an RV repair shop in Ridgefield? We live about 15 miles away from there and am always looking for RV related services.

Thanks!

If you want to see a bunch of CC Prevosts, you need to go to a CC rally! But not many for sale.
Some advantages of a Prevost conversion include a large fuel tank with anywhere from 208 to 300 gallons, Cruise Airs, and a huge water pump. A longer wheelbase than a 45-foot CC, though, by 27 inches, so slightly less maneuverability than a CC, although I saw a 45-foot Prevost worm his way through a Safeway parking lot seemingly without any trouble. Maintenance costs will probably be higher, although I'm not sure a Prevost with no slides will be all that much more expensive than a 4-slide CC, with them having to replace slide seals and slide awnings.

As a proud member of IRV2, and a CC owner, I'd like to volunteer to take one for the gang. Yes, I'm willing to make the move to a Prevost CC 2 Slide coach. I can record the cost differences from real world maintenance experience.

All of this, for you, my fellow IRV2 CC owner members.

Dig deep, plastic is accepted, and make it easy on yourself - set up a regular monthly contribution.

Please contact me for routing info to:

The Smitty Prevost CC Purchase Fund


We all must step up in these rough times, and I'll do this for all of you...
Smitty

CC Prevost had huge problems with their house wiring on the 2001-2002 XL2 models. They used an "in-house" Crestron system that no longer has any parts. They had problems with their wiring even when new. CC during these years was the first bus to indroduce the "20K" front end with massive tires. Until then, pretty much all buses were front-end heavy.

The "bulletproof" CC Prevost's were the XL's. This line ran between 198?-2000. 1996/7 was the first year IFS was installed in the coach. Turned in half the space! They all ran the Detroit 60Series motors after 1994/5. Before this was the 8V92 (oil leakers).

Hope this helps
