I don't think the coach that I want exists..

I pretty much have everything I want from a coach narrowed down, but I am having a hell of a time finding it with Country Coach Intrigue.

Class A DP
Pre DEF
Dynomax Chassis
38-42' length (the better the wheel to length ration the better)
8-10 outboard airbags
Independent front axle
Rear tag axle
400+ hp /1000+ fpt
Allison 3k (4k preferred)

And here is the big one.. 2 front slides
I certainly don't mind 3 or 4 slides, but finding an intrigue that has 2 slides up front is not very easy.

There are number of Allures out there, but when it comes to the CC line up, the Intrigue is really what I want (Magna would work too)

There are also a few Intrigues with front double slides but all shorter and none with tag axles.

Does anyone know if what I am looking for exists?
Or do I need to start looking at Beaver, Monocom & Holiday Rambler?

Call Robbins RV in Ormond Beach, FL. They have a 2006 Intrigue priced at 124,450 that meets all of your criteria I believe. Nice coach. I looked at it this morning.

Check with Damon Rapozo. He keeps up on what's available nationwide or can search for a specific unit. Works out of Premier RV in Junction City OR.

All are legit except 8-10 airbags outboard. People like CC's riding and handling better why how many airbags and whether it's outboard or "inboard" matter.

Magna is a step up in CC's line up, some of its features are not offered in lower siblings. With your budget you could get one of those in excellent shape. Not long ago I saw a 2005 Magna 42' asking for $120k on rvtrader.com. Don't rule out Magna.

There are a lot nice Intrigue out there. If you are planning to have a big solar down the road, like what I did, Intrigue has an advantage for the spaces available for circuference install (Magna has two awnings occupying both sides that is a disadvantage for big solar). Overall, Intrigue is a compromise for features, performance and cost, hence a "sweet spot".

Don't get frustrated! We have all gone through the process. Keep searching, you will run into your love at first sight someday.

Is that bad?
Seems like 16'4" is pretty short compared to the total length of the coach
That would put the wheel base at about 45%, which seems too short..

Putting the tag down effectively lengthens the wheelbase so no worries. Having it up at very low speeds gives you the maneuverability of the short wheelbase.
