Also good luck with post sale service from Colton RV. I experienced Craig first hand along with their sales manager and their ploy was classic low ball. Parts guys are nice and helpful but the service dept. does IMO sloppy work.
For the most part, RV dealers are not the place for service.

I'll keep that advice in mind. I do not plan on being in this part of the country often after this summer. Even after we sell the house we are staying around probably until Sept/Oct time frame when my wife will retire. After that good-bye western NY!

I already had a bad taste toward Craig. That has not changed. I will find out about service because there are a few things they had to take care before delivery.

Plan a trip to the factory for the best service.

Normal maintenance items can be handled by manufacurer certified service providers.

Do a cat dealer for the engine, cat can provide direction to dealers who may be better suited to your needs.

Inside the rv is whole different story, factory in Oregon can tune everything up, and you may look at extended service plan coverage of it.

While there you could find out if they have started looking to build their dealer network for when they start building later, that should give clues to other places for service down the road

Yes I have heard their plan is to start sometime this year. I have heard they will start slowly and do it right, just a few coaches to start and build up from there. I plan on getting out that way sometime. Colton is doing a service on the engine and generator prior to delivery. I am also making them replace the chassis batteries and look at the date codes of the 6 rear tires. The front tires were replaced in mid year 2011 so they will be fine for quite some time. I'm not sure of the rears.

Oil up that woodwork!

Just a suggestion, the glue CC used in the old days not the best, and over time failed.

The inside of the coach is like a greenhouse, so wood will "move".

This is stressfull on the joints.

Our old manual stresses oiling all the wood, ours is waxed with HD paste wax post re-gluing, will get more work later.

Contact CC to get the preferred treatment, old english or lemon oil are good.

Then clean and wipe

Lemon oil will make it smell real good!

Thanks for the advice. Ours is a 2006 so not nearly as old, but good advice. I will contact Country Coach. Thanks.

We are moving into the coach on Friday FT. Once our house sells we will officially be FTers. My wife retires at the end of Sept., then we head south. I do not want to be here when the snow starts flying again.

Which model and price range was the 08? Our 06 Magna has a wholesale value of $265K. The dealer wanted $259K, we got them down to $215K. We have some nice equity built in when we start this adventure.

Note: Never mind, I see your thread elsewhere.
