Best Coachmen Dealerships

Anyone care to share the good and bad on the dealership where you bought or had your Coachman serviced? What are the best dealerships on the east coast?

Thanks WDW. The Concord is one of the few GTS style class C's around. Hopefully, I have got all the bugs out of my Forester. It would be nice to have a list of the best Coachman Dealers to explore or get service, while traveling. I encourage people to post on rvservicereviews.com, but many good places have not been rated or there is not enough reviews to make an informed decision.

If i had to do it over again i would of never bought a coachmen. Some of the poorest craftsmanship of any product i've every bought. That said, i am glad we bought ours at Three Way Campers in Marietta GA. Great service and great customer service. If it wasn't for them this thing would never be on the road.

Sorry to hear of coach problems. Sent mine back to the factory, FR. Found a screw on the floor yesterday. It came from the ceiling vent. It turns out they cut the hole in the ceiling too big, so the screw was screwed into - you guessed nothing. That is the new ceiling. Amazing.

coachmen dealers

I purchased my 2019 319mb from Total Value RV in Elkhart,In on 4/19/19. Couple minor things that were fixed before we left to go back to OKC. So far I only have a black tank valve that won't close all the way so when I go back to Indiana in August for the Frog rally I will get them to fix it. Very happy with the unit and the dealership so far. Salesman was Dave Olsen.

Have you tried this? Put a long piece of rubber tubing on the straw for a can of silicone lubricant. WD40 comes with a straw attached (make sure it is WD40 silicone spray and not regular WD 40). Run the tube up to the gate with it closed as far as you can easily get it. Spray liberally. The open the valve and spray again and some beyond the valve. See if that loosens it up.

If not, get one of the portable valves that attach to the end of the pipe. Close it and add a generous amount of valve seal lubricant, leaving the sticking valve open. Let it sit for a few days.

Of course this assumes the valve is stuck and that there is no obstruction blocking the gate from closing. If the latter the rubber tube might help to dislodge it.

Anyhow, thanks for the response. I think, I really want a ?Newmar class A. Of course they discontinued my favorite floor plan, just as FR discontinued my favorite class C floor plan. So if the pennies don't add up for the A, the Concord is one of the few remaining GTS styles C's. I hate the traditional overhang over the cab and don't need additional sleeping space.

Thanks again and I hope that rig brings you years of trouble free pleasure.
