He used to be a top Newmar salesman.

He doesn't owe me anything.

I've heard so much about the fabled Kobe steak, I'm going to save up and see for myself.

After seeing those pics and after owning two 45 foot coaches, I'm befuddled as to what the lure is to own one....

Seems to me you'd lose so much space and for me I'd rather have the space and then just go out under the awning and sit in a chair....

Just another gimmick to me...... but what do I know.

Speaking of recent gimmicks, I'd much prefer the roof top thingy...... LOL!!

Maybe not in Delaware however if you lived one hour north of my location it would happen nightly if your patio was not raised and gated.

The Airstream roof top patio?

That was just another bad idea that someone thought was a good idea, and it's long gone.

It sure looked great. It also looked like it could be a leak nightmare waiting to happen.

Have a look at the movie that they have posted on their site webmaster@countrycoach.com It explains many of the previous questions. It looks interesting.

We just toured that coach at the Escapee's rally in Gillette, WY. Kind of interesting. It's a 52,000 lb. coach with less than 2,500
lb. of cargo capacity. The veranda is pretty neat until you think about extending it in the typical RV space. I guess you could pass the grey poupon to your neighbor without having to descend to street level. The best part? On the frame of the sliding glass door leading out onto the veranda, the door latches very plainly have the word "FLEETWOOD" stamped on the base plates. Cracked us up along with everyone else present. Even took a picture. Anyhow, must agree, interesting concept but probably pointless for us average RVers. But hey, they're trying!

They had 2 on display at Lazy days when we were there, the last week of July. Two different floor plans. One had the kitchen sink right by the sliding doors, so you could use it from the inside or outside on the deck. We liked the other model better, seemed more spacious. I wouldn't want to have either one, because of the loss of space.
They have there own table and chairs for the veranda, plus the TV.

ItstheTrip, Thanks for posting the CCC or Cargo Carry Capacity. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">It's a 52,000 lb. coach with less than 2,500 lb. of cargo capacity. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> I'd wondered about it and also about the possible loss of storage. Based upon our experience and what I've read, full-timers should expect to carry 2000-3000 pounds of "stuff". The lack of CCC is the primary reason we traded our 2007 La Palma for the 2008 Cayman. Our CCC is now more than 4600.

I like to see new ideas and improvements with RVs. Hopefully it will keep the manufacturers in business and RVers interested.

There were several Veranda models on display at the FMCA rally in St. Paul, Mn. I was told by one of the sales reps that they had sold 9 of them at a Country Coach pre-rally. Now, remember this was a sales rep telling me this, so take it with a grain of salt. But anyway it a feature to sell a different high end motorhome. If you like to travel alot it is not pratical, but if you own an RV lot and sit for months at a time this might be for you.

The Veranda has a great concept.
I have been in several of them.
There not for everyone. But if you plan to stay parked in one spot for a few days. You would really enjoy it.
