Checking out a 2010 Magna

Just curious about a country coach magna built in 2010. The coach has some wear but appears to be in good shape. Are there any owners out there who have this year and model?
Would like to hear your thoughts on these coaches as to major faults and what do you like about them?
It is priced about 299k.

Must be the one on Motorhomes of Texas website. 2010 is the year Country Coach went bankrupt. Some folks have noticed some lack of quality in the last few coaches, so a good, thorough inspection is required. Make sure it has the RVIA sticker--if not it was not completed by Country Coach.

Excellent point Peralko!!

We had heard that several coaches were sold incomplete and completed elsewhere, especially the Veranda models.

Try to get you hands on the build sheet. Was it custom ordered or a stock build for sale. Could make a difference who finished the coach. Mine is an Allure 480, last one that came out of the CC Factory. It was a custom order and was completed by the CC folks. It has an order date of June 23, 2009, and an in-service date of June 2010. I know the actual in-service date because I contacted Cummins to verify the engine warranty. It ran out on June 5, 2015. You can also check the coach number with CC and they will tell you the whole skinny on your rig. Mine is #31727 and verified by CC as the last Allure 480 out the door. As for lack of quality, my coach has given me no problems at all, runs great and is solid as a rock. I have found that the build sheet contains a wealth of information. It will tell you what was installed, and then you can go on the internet and get all your manuals and maintenance instructions for the various systems. Good luck.

After Mr. D's experience with his Magna's ISX, and knowing of 2 Foretravels, another Magna, and I believe a Newmar having dropped valves/seats requiring costly rebuilds of their ISX, I would look into fluid analysis at a minimum on any 2007-2010 coach with a 600/650hp ISX.

No need for a build sheet. Somewhere in the coach is a complete list of installed components listing model numbers and serial numbers which the build sheet doesn't have.

Also, there should be a box of manuals and a couple of binders with all wiring diagrams, torque specs, plumbing diagrams, etc in them.

Make sure you get the box of manuals and the binders. With those, you can fix anything.

We decided that the 2010 wasn't exactly the coach we wanted, so the search continues. Thanks for all your input..good things to think about with any coach being thought about.
Happy New year and safe travels!
