We love our 2009 CC CP. We waited until we could find a solid used unit and that took 8 years. The layout needed to be precise. They build less than 40 of these versions so it took a while. We also passed up a few along the way as we could not afford the asking price until now.
Our MH cost $530,000 new. They were not inexpensive. Once we made the purchase from the original owner via a dealer I drove it back to CC in Oregon for a bumper to bumper inspection. We view this DP as an investment and plan to keep it at least 10 years. That said we expected to spend some money on updates and repairs.
While at CC in Oregon we did spend some dollars on baseline maintenance, replaced a bad bell crank in the IFS and made the PTO wet. Your PTO operates the steering and cooling pumps. A critical component.
Updated all of the AV to HD smart TVs with HDMI cables with a new HD dish, basement freezer and BBQ grill etc etc.
With over $50K in upgrades and mods we this our DP is what we wanted and what will meet our needs until 2025. In total from the purchase and the upgrades we are still under $200K. You cannot purchase a 45ft MH today under $300K with the same quality fit and finish.
Winnebago purchased all of CC and more importantly the service and parts division. While I do not think CC will return with a Dynamax Chassis, we will still get parts and service for now. That's a good thing.
If you are in a position to buy a CC CP under $200K. Buy it. You may never see another DP with that floor plan at that price. Good luck! Check in anytime for Q&A. I'm becoming an expert one repair at a time! LOL.
p.s. I will be at the SWCC rally in Palm Springs CA for New Year. Hope you can make it.
