I didn't see a price listed for all this outdoor living. All they said was there were various floor plans available. Anyone?

Like it or not, folks, it is the kind of creativity that the industry needs. If a thousand folks buy it just for tailgaiting in style, then the industry remains solid. I hope it will catch on, because the other brands will take a few more risks too! Alfa Leisure also pushed the envelope with some of their designs, they just couldn't get the fit/finish/reliability issue worked out. Tour Master is also trying to mix things up a bit. I applaud the attempts!

Not necessarily a new idea. This photo was published in a 1909 edition of Motor Magazine. (That's Monaco Mama's great great grandmother, there on the left. )

The new CC is an interesting design, but I agree that I wouldn't want to give up the inside wall space. Also, the storage compartments underneath would be almost impossible to get to with that veranda down.

HighwayRanger's point, however, is well taken.

Robin...Actually it is the one in the middle. I have photos of my Mom when she was younger...that you would swear is the spitting image of the lady in the middle.



I am going to say that the veranda takes place of the slide that would normally be there...

Still innovative by today's standards. Will watch this development closely as it gets more air-time.
Love the overall concept. A Mid-coach "deck" would work well at some of my favorite boondocking locations.
You have to realize that seamless indoor-to-outdoor transition is quite desirable to a lot of RV'ers. Love the way that the kitchen is so "open".
Like the ol' TV show "Green Acres" says, "you can keep Park Avenue, just give me the fresh air...
This baby will turn heads at any venue.

Have mixed feelings on this one. Have been to places where you can't be out on the ground after dark because of the night critters so they had to build raised walkways two to three feet off the ground. This way you could go for a walk or sit out and gaze at the stars without having to worry about an encounter.

A pack of wild pigs at dusk is not fun when you are both at the same level and in close proximity. On the Veranda you could just look down and watch them pass by while sipping a nice White Zin and snacking on some pear and apple wedges with a good sharp chedder on the side.

Fortunately, it doesn't occur often.

Greetings all' We saw the Veranda on a 45'Affinity on display at Guaranty in Junction City last week. They were giving the "Dog & Pony" show and it was a pretty cool feature. The wife noticed right off that you lose alot of space and storage, inside and underneath. Very much a party coach, don't know how applicable to "fulltimers".

The gentleman from CC told us it is a $41K Add-on to all their line of coaches.

Hi! Sounds like fun to me! It is a pretty neat design. Well thought out! Here is a link to 3 Country Coach Verandas to look at: http://www.damonr.com/ They look different. paul
