I always thought they were cool but we always sit around the fire so doesn't fit our life style.

I don't think you would want to leave the awning out when you are using BBQ.

Country Coach made that and then went belly up. I saw one at the Orange Grove RVP in Bakersfield, Ca. before xmas. The folks that had it liked it and it had two or 3 other slides. Nice coach but a bit too long for my taste.

Some of the used prices on their regular class A's seem extraordinarily low, any thoughts why?

I can think of several reasons that design failed. #1 for me would be loss of cabinets inside the coach #2 would be loss of seating for guests #3 would be those big glass doors (loss of heating & cooling) #4 would be that mechanism is down right shaky and awkward (prone to fail), #5 it is too narrow to be of any real use for more than 2 people and last but not least #6 you don't have room for a decent BBQ that won't light the awning on fire or send smoke right inside!

Motorhome Specialists (Texas RV Dealer, Used RVs for sale, motorhome sales, new RVs ) and PPL Motorhomes (Used RVs, Motorhomes for Sale, and Consigned sales - PPL Motor Homes ) are known for their customer service and prices. I know PPL keeps track of what the RVs sold for over the last 3 years or so. Helps in figuring out what the real selling and buying price is or at least what they have sold them for.

So they actually sell at a more realistic prices and move a lot of units which mean more sales? The way it should be, more like buying from a private seller??

I think their prices are closer to "real "sale prices .. Not the way overblown " asking" price most dealers use! ppl posts actual sale amount I believe in their sold coach listings ... Good to compare.

I've talked to a few owners of these, they came in three trim levels. All really enjoyed them.

And as mentioned, two owners had them to get their handicapped family members out and about. One had a lot they had purchased on a lake, installed hook ups, and would pull this out and their adult wheel chair bound daughter enjoyed the decks outdoor views - especially star gazing at night.

As mentioned, this was one of the last new designed rigs that CC rolled out. CC never intended it to be a high volume coach, as the majority of RV'ers that go park to park, will not want to sit out and look onto their neighbors hook ups! (That being said, another gent I talked to with the Magna equivalent Veranda, said he and his wife had several RV parks that went to, where they had noted sites that were perfect for the Veranda. I talked to them in Custer's Beaver Lake RV Park, and the site they had was an end one on a raised terrace with a great view.)

Many same the money that went into the development of this rig, was what put CC out of business. I doubt this, sure it could have been a factor, but CC had a pretty deep model line in place at that time. Tribute to Affinity, with many levels in between. The full National then non National era business decisions - were probably more of a problem then just the Veranda.

By the way, every owner I talked with, said they were a solid built coach and that they had no problems with it. One gent did agree with another poster, that his wife did miss the cabinet space to make the 'glass wall and fold out deck'. I asked about the weight balance, and he said yes that side was heavier, but the coach handled well and he had several thousand pounds of CCC available - those Tag's do add to the CCC!

A niche coach, for specific usage - and certainly unique!

Best to all,
Smitty

Anybody remember the Airstream M/H that has the roof top entertainment center, where you had the inside stairway up to the roof. That didn't go over very well either.
