I think the Continental Coach is a very nice high end full time rig. I prefer a fiver to TT's but that is a very nice TT they came up with.

We like the custom 2 bedroom. My dream would be a 2 bedroom toy hauler. I would agree that there TT is very nice but we prefer fifth wheel as well

Thanks

I have also spoke with them recently about building me a custom 2 bed 2 bath rig. Most of there rigs are sent over seas. We are in deep thought about it but haven't pulled the trigger yet, manly because I am still in thought about what the maximum length I feel I could get by with. I have been to Space Craft and New Horizon and I think Continental is so much better construction, and also a lot more plush. The Space Craft is to plain for me and New Horizon is to rustic, or country design as far as inside and there normal paint line I know they will both do what ever you want then to do for you, however I have found it better to find someone that's performs close to what you want and tweak it some instead of making them perform out of there norm totally.

Continental Coach Owner

Hi there. We have a 2013 Continental Coach Elegance and would be happy to try to answer any question you may have.

We last had a 43ft Travel Supreme 2 bedroom unit that was reliable and well cared for, but it was time to update.

We thoroughly researched before we ordered our rig; spending LONG hours at factories, talking to engineers, designers and even the owners. Here are the brands we researched: Mobile Suites, New Horizons, Spacecraft and Forks RV/Continental Coach.

While all of these are fine units, none could compare to the Continental's construction and finish. After 2 hours at the factory in Shipshewana, IN, we were sold.

We settled on a 45ft 2 bedroom unit. It took 4 months to build.

The level of fit and finish is like a million dollar bus conversion!

We are totally pleased with the product and the support. Great people!

I would recommend that you visit their factory before you order any other custom fiver--you will be blown away.

I have not paid any attention to this mfg--looks nice and really high end. Are there any prices floating around? Say, the shortest Coach model?

Hello
Thanks for the reply. Is your second bedroom in the rear of the coach or is like the 101060 with the second bedroom aft of the bathroom.

wingnut60,

They will build anything with any fixtures you want; you literally select everything. The price reflects what you pick. You could build something for $100k-$300k. Perhaps less.

Thanks. They sure look nice. Don't know why I even asked as it is obvious that they have to be in the $100k+ range.

Bigfiver - what's your tow vehicle ?
We've been looking at their combo 5th wheel / horse trailer specs, but they said they stopped making them due to high demand of the Continental Coach. They were featured on a recent showing of 'Extreme RV's' - nice units.
