New member and Country Coach

Hi,
I have a class C and am ready for a Class A. I have a line on a 2004 Country Coach Inspire with 4slides. I don't see many for sale anywhere on the Internet to compare it to.
Is that because once you own one you love it so much you don't want to sell it or is it because they are out of business?

Thanks!

CC Inspire

We have an '04 CC Inspire with the ISC350 and in my opinion it is one of the best riding, handling and quality built coaches around. CC may be out of business for now but they built some real batleships like the inspire. Like all class A's, it takes $ to maintain them but you won't regret the Inspire.

vette4ba - CC built lots of motor homes and I think you will be able to find quite a few for sale if you keep looking. Country Coach is not out of business though. We are headed there in a few days to get a couple things done on our coach. They do an excellent job of service as do several others in the Eugene Or area.

I like mine well enough so that I have no intention of selling it. I suppose when you buy a good working CC you do sort of feel that your are "there" and no use looking for a better coach as you already own the best. The only other brand I like as well is Foretravel. Some friends of ours own one of those. Construction and materials similar to CC. We have an Affinity and our interior and exterior far better than our friends Foretravel Nimbus.

When we were researching coaches, Country Coach was on the top of our list. We found our Zephyr which we love. However, we also believe you can't go wrong with a Country Coach, so keep looking.

Hi Chuydog,
Thanks for the response. Could you give me an estimate of what annual costs I might/will have? Do you have a checklist of things to do that you could send me?

Thanks

The cost will depend on a lot of variables. Do you plan an a lot of travel, or just moving from one place to another every few months? My 45 foot Magna with 525 HP Cat averages just over 6 MPG. (My sister-in-law has a 23 foot class C on a Ford 450 that also averages approx. 6 MPG). A recent trip of approx. 900 miles cost us approx. $650 fuel. Fuel prices vary a lot. $4.05/gallon in Ohio, $4.17/gallon in NY, cheaper the further south you go (for the most part)

Maintenance costs vary as well. Plan a complete service every 15000 miles (or annually I suppose). Plan on several hundred dollars (engine oil and filters, generator oil and filters). Diesel engines are bigger and work hard, they need oil as much for cooling as lubrication.

Tires are big and expensive. 7 to 8 years (no matter the mileage) seem to be the average replacement schedule. In your search, find a coach with newer tires to avoid this expensive maintenance, $400+ per tire.

Of course because DP coaches are more expensive (worth more) the insurance expense is higher.

I'm sure there is more I haven't mentioned, but because I'm getting old I can't remember, LOL.

WYN

Medico, I too often wondered where you are located in WNY. Now I know. I was born in Rochester, lived in Scottsville and Warsaw and raised in Buffalo. DO NOT miss the snow, cold and lake effect blizzards.

Az is great most of the time but we're getting out of here this weekend for two months as Phoenix is heating up.

Good and safe travels to you.

we are new owners of a 2003 lexa country coach and it is truly a learning experience. We are not young and all this electronics gets us confused. Transmission went out when we arrived home from buying it out in az. And luckily it was in our own driveway. Now the slides won't work, appt. Soon for this problem.
Anyone out there with a lexa who could help us along. Thanks. J and e

Sounds like an electrical problem.

What trouble shooting have you done on the transmission problem?

Will the slides extend when the engine is running?
