Are you comparing the Country Coach to a Newell or a Newmar? I think the high end Newmars are a closer comparison.
16 days until we take delivery of our new King Aire.
After a BIG build up by friends on how grand the Newells are we toured one at the last Tampa Super Show.
At first glance it was OH WOW! However when I started looking with a more critical eye it became a different story. Lots of high gloss formica and flash put on unstable substrates with the formica overhanging in too many locations with a multitude of knife edges.
The fit and finish of too many items were so poor that when I pointed them out to our blinded by the glitz group that no one could argue for Newell putting something so poorly finished out at a show. We are not talking about damages from having people touring the coach but plain old poor practice in assembling and finishing the cabinetry and casework.
Maybe I am too critical being a former willworker in a custom trim, window, door and casework shop but most of what I saw would not have made it past the shipper and left the door of our shop.
