Hello all ---

My wife, Kathie, and I bought our first Country Coach in 1988. It was an '83 34' gasser, and, as I recall, we had no problems with it. We had traded up from a '70 Winnebago, and really thought we were "stylin" in our C.C. Since then, we have had a '91 36' Sedona, a '95 38' Magna, and now an '03 42' Magna Resort with the Cat 505 & all available bells & whistles. Personally, I would not buy anything but a C.C. The problems one encounters with them are usually those of components breaking down, not with the coach construction. We have found that, as the coaches have gotten newer and more sophisticated, that the problems have increased at a rapid rate, due to the fact that there is so much high-tech gear in them now. I have to say that, all in all, my favorite coach for traveling and lack of problems has been the '95 Magna. Granted, it's not as good for living for long periods of time as the one we have now, but we aren't full-timers anyway. We live in it for 2 or 3 months in the winter in Palm Springs, but could easily do the same thing with a 5th wheel down there, and buy an older C.C. for travel. I think C.C. quality slipped quite a bit during the National RV period, and I don't think it's come back yet, so I think I's stick to the mid-90s models on the Gillig chassis.
