Vintage CC

Here is my 1994 Country Couch Affinity I bought last September. It's 38' with no slides. It has a 6v92 Detroit and a 4 speed Allison. Runs and drives like new. I wanted something that could tow a car trailer through the mountains safely. Everything works like it should. Looks pretty good still. Had to buy tires and a house battery.
I love the 10kw diesel generator, the three air conditioners and the two furnaces.




By the time a coach is this old, the way it was taken care of will be VERY obvious. I bought it from the second owner who lived in it for ten of the thirteen years he owned it. It has almost no signs of wear inside.

Nice coach but then I like the Beaver coaches. The woodwork in our old 1991 Contessa was absolutely beautiful.

Thank you!
It was such a nerve wracking decision to pull the trigger on something so old and with so much potential for problems. But I looked at enough overpriced JUNK to know a jewel when I found it. And so far it has been really great.

And......most likely you get to enjoy a Gillig Bus chassis to boot. Great looking rig!

Very similar to last post but a 35U on a Ford F53 Chassis. Still only 31,000 Kms on rig.

Why yes, it is a Gillig. I don't have a lot to compare it to as this is my first class A, but I am real happy with it. It is very solid on the road. The only thing it needs is new front shocks.
