Any thoughts on CT Coachworks Siena?

Met some nice folks who might be looking to get off the road. They currently have a 2008 Siena. Nice looking coach with dish washer, full size gas range, residential fridge, stacked washer/dryer and even a trash compactor. On a workhorse chassis and low miles.

Not sure how you get a full size 30" gas range out the door if needed or even the bottom mount refer as well. Anyone have any thoughts on this out of business coach builder?

Thanks...

I would check the actual weight vs GVWR of the 39' gas rig with all the goodies.

There might not be a lot of CCC wiggle room.

And, I had not focused on a Sienna in the past either.

We have had ours for 7 years and it has served us well. CT Coachworks is still in business, just not building Motorhomes for now. They do build luxury limo busses and toy hauler type travel trailers. The company is family owned and operated by Steve Thompson and his wife, in Riverside CA. He and Wendy are great folks.
It also has a residential size shower, a garbage disposal and a king size bed. Heated holding tanks and wet bay. Two 8D AGM batteries and an AGS system.
They made two models of the Siena, V35 and V40.
We chose not to get the washer dryer for more closet space. We are full timers.
I know of four members here that own one.

A search for "Flounder" may find better information. That's what the coach debuted as. There was quite a bit of discussion about it when it was first introduced about 10 years ago.

I have a 2009 CT Coachworks, Siena 39' on a 2008 workhorse W22 Chassis. I have to say that we love our RV. We bought it used in 2013 with 7,000 miles on it and now have 30,000+ miles on it. Just finished a trip from Southern California to South Carolina and back. It was great to travel in. While on the trip we experienced some problems. Our slide stopped working (wire broken on solenoid), The Ignition switch shorted (found to be a common problem with Workhorse Cassis at 30K miles), ABS Light failure showing that the ABS was not working. I, and my mechanic, have had to work with Workhorse and CT Coachworks to get things repaired. I have found that CT Coachworks (Wendy) are great to work with and willing to help out if she can. However, Workhorse has not be so easy to work with. For the most part they have just blown us off in the service department. It has forced me to do some serious research to get wiring diagrams and other things to fix the problems. I am working with the company that makes the Instrument Cluster to get a replacement. They are great to work with. All in all, our experience has been a good one with the Siena. All RV's need to be repaired. Ours is comfortable and has all of the conveniences that my Wife wants. That is a plus right there. A happy wife is a happy RV life.

Love my CT Coachworks

Hi, I am a little ol' lady from GA, a full timer and bought my 2007 CT Coachworks last year. Drove it to WA...wonderful trip. Had to put blocks on the gas pedal (4' 9" here) but other than that it was a pleasure to drive. Averaged 8 1/2 mpg thru mountains and flatlands. It is perfect for full time living with all the amenities. I just wish they still made them as I would like to have a newer one soon.
