In Gettysburg Campground

New to Rving so I don't know much about Country Coach. A club is here called the Nor'Easters with some beautiful coaches.

Several years represented with a few that are 13+ years old. Still beautiful and well maintained.

I'm working here but if I get time I'll try and snap a few pics and post them.

Here's a link to a thread about Country Coach up until 2011.

Country coach history time line

As of November, 2015, the name and company is now part of Winnebago.

With the name now being part of Winnebago is there any speculation of a return to market?

I know trying to revive a name from the past and doing it any justice is a long shot.

Were you able to get any pics? We are country coach fans and owners. Would love to see some of the other coaches out there.

Unable to post pics. Sorry for the tease but I can't get them from my phone to this computer to post.

While nothing is guaranteed, Winnebago's top management has repeatedly said they plan to build Country Coach motorhomes again. Country Coach lovers are both hopeful and skeptical. Will Winnebago just add a few doodads to a Winnebago and call it a 'Country Coach' or will they really build something on a level of a Country Coach?

For certain, Winnebago needs time to get their diesel pusher manufacturing going in Oregon. We shall see what develops.

The economy will have a huge part in Winney building a CC. To make a real CC, they will have to build the DynoMax chassis as that is the heart of the coach. It is expensive to build so we shall see. Back in the old days CC tried building a coach on a Freightliner chassis and it didn't fly.

Then again Winney could steal the best of CC to build their premium coach

I'm thinking that to build the DynoMax chassis again and put the same quality into the rest of the rig would bring an Affinity or Magna into the 1 million + range. Not sure that's a good place to be right now.

I sent you a PM, if you didn't get it please let me know.

As far as the chassis, on the build sheet I have it shows IFS and a Reyco rear. These are available on the Spartan chassis. I don't claim to be a chassis expert and perhaps there is more to the DynoMax. Also the build sheet shows a MSRP of $774000. So in todays market this would easily top $1m.
