Country Coach Concepts....Looking.

I have become enamored with the looks and the designs of the second generation coaches, especially with the modern interior. If anyone knows of one for sale I would love to know . I have been looking and have not found one at a reasonable price or one in good condition....anyone's help would be greatly excepted. I would even entertain a finders fee for the right product..

go to oodle.com plug in what you're looking for and check the right boxes and it will send you daily updates. It searches all over the web for listings except craigslist.
Good Luck and happy hunting

Thanks Guys for the advice. I have been doing just that for sometime. Seems many of the CC Concepts are listed for sale in the strangest of places. Craigslist be one of them along with some local "finder" sites. I have found a couple that might work,but so far the price is the blocking. The 97-2000 45 ft is what I want. NADA tops out at 70,000, but its hard to find a good one lower than 90,000, my limit is 77,000 and I have cash for a quick clean sale.

Keep in mind asking prices are very negotiable. Seems the one at Premier RV is very close to what you want. You may want to give them a call to see how far down they will go on the price. Everyone I talked to who bought from them gave them positive comments, and most of them were Country Coach employees.

Yes, I have been talking to them. They seem to be very busy, are hard to nail down on anything. I am still waiting for a email reply from Sunday . I do know these consignment coaches can be difficult when trying to make deals, but it does make me wonder if they have interest, knowing I will not pay asking price ? I guess we will see if I get a reply. Funny thing , I actually bought a Monaco in 98 new from them when they were New dealers for CC and Monaco under the Guarentee name.

this makes absolutely no sense. Guaranty and premier are 2 entirely different entities. premier started in either late 2010 or early 2011 and guaranty was open way before that. Gary and Louie who own premier both worked for cc up to the shutdown. They are both really great guys and people seem to be really happy dealing with them. i have seen the concept they have and its exceptionally clean if you want a nice one. they do know what they are worth and what they can get for them. On the deal if they tell you something it gets done exactly how they say it will. jmho

Just going by what I was told by their sales person.I have no doubt that they are honest people. Guaranty RV does go back a long way, remember it was in 98 that I bought the Monaco Windsor over the phone and they delivered it to my doorstep 3500 miles away ! If anyone working for Premier says that the company grew out of Guarantee RV should I not except that as truth ? I also wonder what the connection is with CC sales who has also been soliciting for my business.?

Thank you for bringing up the Coach in question , its always good to have an outside opinion about overall condition, which I can't seem to get from Premier , in detail. Should I be talking to one of the two owners ?

Guaranty is still in business in Junction City, although they closed the other outlets in California at Gilroy and Indio. Country Coach Corporation is next door to Premier RV--Premier is operating out of what used to be the Magna/Affinity production facility. No connection between the two other than a shared fence! By all means talk to Gary or Louie. We talked to them both after we walked over from Country Coach while having our coach serviced, and we would not hesitate to deal with them or Country Coach. And if that coach don't meet your needs, there will always be others out there. Good luck!

Thanks again for your help ,I am now starting to get response. I guess they are just covered up with business that it reflects their customer attention.( actually a good place to be in it would seem for the seller anyway )

talk to either Louie or Susan. Gary handles all the shop work, but occasionally does a sale. Susan did work for Guaranty a long time.

Be aware, that the NADA valuation for Motorhomes is not based upon actual reported transaction values (automobiles are) but appear instead to be mathematical depreciation calculations from MSRP.

So, if the prices seem high compared to NADA, perhaps the market is rewarding the sellers but NADA does not value that condition.

The Concept is a beautiful rig of which not many were built.

We found the Affinity and Magna to be a bit more practical for inside storage and function with most of the benefits of the Concept.

Best of luck in your search. The Concept is a beauty.
