Country Coach now that company is defunct

I'm considering purchasing a 2000 40' CC Magna with the CAT C10 engine. It is a beautiful coach and has been well taken care of, at least from a visual standpoint. I haven't had the opportunity to drive it or even to do an extensive inspection yet.

One of my concerns is what happens if I need chassis work or something similar that needs information from the manufacturer. With no company left, what are you owners doing in such cases?

I'll ask one further question, are there any specific problem areas I need to be aware of in the coach? I've browsed the forum and really haven't seen anything that raises too much concern.

I have that exact unit new owner (previous an Allegro Bay owner), just purchased it 2 months ago. I purchased it from a previous CC salesman, it is an fantastic unit. The service techs and network is still out there, if you want to go back to Coburg Or(were they were made) I can give you a contact that can uses some of the manufacturing techs to do work.

CCs are great coaches

A 2000 Magna is fairly similar to my 2002 42' Affinity. I have owned ours since last Nov. I have had exactly zero issues getting work done or parts. I did stop by the area in Or where these coaches were made and can tell you that if possible go to that area to get work done. The level of expertise is very high and the cost tends to be low. I suppose it is possible to have issues due to no factory, but at this time I am not worried about it. If I had the purchase to do over again I would buy the Affinity that I did. You cannot get the same level of consistent quality at this price elsewhere.

Getting the Country Coach wiring diagrams for chassis and coach would be a huge benefit. They are included in the CC manual for my rig.

My rig is 5 model years older than your target rig and I have had to rely on those electrical schematics somewhat frequently.

The engine, suspension, transmission, and other components of the rig usually have manuals on the web that will help you in the future, if you can identify your component model.

If you will receive the CC manuals with the purchase and it passes your inspections you should be good to go.

Thanks for the replies. I pulled the trigger and am now rushing to get my paper work in order so I can enjoy the coach this winter.

Oregon Motor coach is the original builder of CC.
They are located in Eugene Oregon next to the Eugene airport.
They have a large facility with a lot of the original people that worked at CC.

Ed Reid is the general manager and was with CC almost since it started. They can handle anything, and do everything there except removing the engine and trans.

Great people to work with

..............................
Many of the employees had worked on the manufacturing line of COUNTRY COACH.
A few where in the service department. All the people of OREGON MOTOR COACH are of the highest of capability in the RV industry.
OMCC was not however the original manufacture of CC coaches.

MMouser,
You are quite correct. It was Bob, and Ron Lee that were the original builders, Bob lee along with his daughter are the owners of OMCC. I met Bob for the first time in 78, approx 5 yrs. after he started country campers.

Thank-you for clarifying that.
