We felt the Intrigue, in the 2003-2005 model years, was the sweet spot of the CC line up. Some Intrigues, I think starting in 2004, could be optioned out with teh Big Cat.
We ended up with a 2004 Allure and the ISL, due to interior items we were looking for. (Wife wanted a big Galley, in the Non Slide side - our High Cascade model has a Galley bigger then most 45' coaches.) The cabinet quality is the same level as the Intrigue to Magna. The Allure does have less goodies, but had the base Chassis and Hydro Hot that we desired. It also has less 'glitz', but that is a personal thing.
The Intrigue is a fine coach. Best of luck,
Roo II is our 04 Country Coach Allure 40'
