Those are all lovely coach models with strong reputations. If they all suit your wants & needs, I would let condition and evidence of maintenance be my guide.

The '09 CC would have me looking very, very closely at condition. CC was on its last legs in '09 (in bankruptcy) and some of the coaches weren't up to their usual standards of excellence. That might even be one of the coaches that was incomplete when the company was liquidated in late 2009.

The Inspire, a nice coach, is not in the same league with the other two. In your heading you mention the Beaver Patriot, depending upon year and engine size, a respected coach.

I own a CC, and like the line in general. The CC Lexa, was I believe a flagship model for CC. You might make a call to Oregon Motor Coach, and Country Coach, or look up Kevin Waite's phone number and call him. The Lexa was for sure a small volume number built coach. Checking with those groups or Kevin, could give you a feel for if the complexity is a concern to be aware of...

Executive could have the ISM in it, which is a fine engine. Suspect the Lexa has a BIG CAT, which would also be a fine engine.

All things being equal, buy the coach you feel fits your living style the best, yep, even the Inspire! (Again, a fine coach in itself...)

Best of luck to you,

The Lexa was a very attractive, highly feature rig designed, I remember, to replace the Prevost Chassis customization arm of Country Coach.

A few Lexa rig's were built and sold but were plagued by a bunch of electronic bugs. If those bugs are gone, then it could be a great coach. I believe they were primarily built as 2003 models.
