Question How many older CC's are out there?

There are many recent model CC on the forum, but I have only seen a couple from the older generation.

We have a 1989 Savannah and would like to know how many other units from the same era on the gillig 3208 chassis are still active.

TQ60..It looks like there are very few older generation Country Coaches here... You can do a search here to double check.. but I do know that djones has a 1997 CC I believe. How old are you looking for?

Red face Late 80s

Since we have a 1989 on the Gillig chassis we are interested in those of the same type.

Better to ask the "goofy" questions of someone else who has had the windshield time in a like unit to avoid stupid guesses.

Our first Country Coach was an 1989 Savannah. It was a great coach; and we really enjoyed it.

I was going to reply, but we have a 1995 almost "new" Magna on a Gillig, so I cannot.

But we have owned it for over 8 yrs so we are almost experts in our rig.

Hi there TQ60 ...and any other members who own vintage CCs. We have an '89 Sedona Mark V which we bought in '07. We have had very good service and have learned to repair all of the little things and some of the big things... like the turbocharger. I have the manuals on the Gillig Chassis as well as the Detroit/Allison powertrain. Would be glad to try to assist in any way that I can.

older coach

I've have had a 1995 cc intrigue on gillig chassis since may 2008 and love it, except the overall ride. Had a Foretravel previously, and find the ride on that coach better. Any suggestions as to how to improve the side to side sway?

Probably still has the original shocks on it. I would talk to the people at Road King and see if they have ones that will fit. Expensive but way ahead of the Koni or Bilsteens.

Also check and make sure your ride height is set correctly.

Check out the suspension parts...

First off we are still working details to get ours on the road, current econ makes money go different places, but when we took some shot road trips we had some issues, although very minor.

We rechecked the tire presure, a little low, the ride height was off, the right rear leveling valve was off in its internal adjustment which allowed the side to drop a couple inches while on the road, we took that apart and home fixed it.

Now on same road ride much better, passing big rigs in opposite direction are not even noticed.

Still need to look at replacement shocks, at 22 years old they have got to be worn out, but the tires at 18 years need to go first.

So get out your gillig chassis manual and read every page on the suspension parts, next go and adjust the ride, the manual specifies using jack stande, but yo have jacks built in, have DW tap the button and get the chassis in the correct place and then set the levers, it is easy to do, takes a pin and a couple 7/16 wrenches and a creeper.

A test is why the engine is running you can gently move the lever and make sure the air bag responds to slight movement, it should be very little slop, if you can move the lever more than 1/4 inch and no change you need to fix it, do this ONLY WITH JACKS DOWN and supporting the coach at ride height, if so search my posts and you will find detailed simple insructions for adjusting the valve IN-COACH, you do NOT want to try to remove it...it is in a place that you almost can reach, only after you get the coach real high on the jacks, NOT FUN!
