Looking at a '09 Magna 45'

Anything particular I should watch out for? Wet PTO conversion or other problem areas?

Just the normal stuff like fogged windows have had all mine fixed by Dave Roots. Check the radiator for leaks or if it has been up dated, mine has been replaced, then tires and batteries, out of my league. Here is one to look at also just to compare.

That's the exact one I'm looking at. Going to see if I can get the DW to drive there on Friday. There's also a 2013 Mountain Aire at Guaranty I'd like her to see too.

That is a good looking coach and I think Premier RV is a lot better to deal with than CC where I got mine on consignment. Just talk sweet and tell her we need to go for a ride but bring the check book
The guy next door got a 5er from Guaranty and boy did he get shafted.

According to what I was told by the tech support folks at CC, the problem radiators used by both CC and Monaco were not used in coaches built after about mid 2007.

No question that when we were there last July, Premier had the better looking coaches for sale.

Good luck and let us know how it works out.

That is a beautiful coach inside and out.... stunning. I would agree the TV over the dining table seems a bit odd but I would not let that be a show-stopper if everything was otherwise to my liking.

Country Coach has an 2009 for $10k less, although I'm sure both prices are negotiable. Both are nice coaches, but the CC coach is a Rembrandt rather than a Vivaldi floor plan. The only thing that would bold me back on a 2009 is the DEF injection. The CC coach has a DEF tank, and I would imagine the one at Premier has it too.

No, that's a factory option according to the order sheet.

In 09 that was around the time CC was on the way out, I would try and get a coach full of warranty and see if it comes with any extra tiles if you crack one.
Here is the one at CC next door.

Yep, that's the other one I'm looking at. Although, so far, it's just been over the Internet. Want to drive down there tomorrow and take a look at several other models too.

Went and looked today, I REALLY like the Magna and the DW says it's a close second to an Allure with a front kitchen that CC has at their place. Now to hammer out the particulars!!
Said I guess it gets 10 to 12 mpg (ISX 650) salesman said "Take the 1 off that"

Any ideas what that engine with 4000 MH trans will do? Our present ISC gives us 7.5 so I'm not particularly looking for better than that but is it around 6.0 or ?

The 650 HP ISX could definitely get 12 MPG, providing, of course you have a steep downhill with a 50 MPH tailwind!
CC owners I've talked to with the big Cummins say 6 MPG is about right.
