New Coach Feedback

OK Brothers and Sisters, The DW and I put a down payment on a Country Coach,Newport Model.
We will sign for it next week, but until then I (WE) need some feedback from other Country Coach owners as to what we are getting into.
I went to our (iRV2) Country Coach fourm and found nothing but problems, I know if everything is going right we tend to keep quiet and only post if there is a problem, thats just human nature.
Judging from the fourm this could be a very unwise move, because we are selling our sticks and bricks to go full timing.
Someone make me feel better and tell me something good about the Country Coach PLEASE
Larry and Rita

Own a Winnie so can't comment, but will say congratulations on the purchase.

Looked at some CC's before we bought our Mandalay from the same dealer. Thought they were awesome ... our only complaint was that they were a couple of years old (though unsold, so treated as "new"), and were somewhat "dated" -- tube TVs, too much carpet, etc. Then after that, the company went bankrupt, so I didn't regret our decision.

What year is the coach you're buying?

Relax...We don't own a Country Coach, but we full-time. From what I have heard and read CC is a very well respected brand.
If you are uncomfortable about the reliability & possible expenses of your new ride....buy a good Extended Warranty. Some people "practice" forever to go full-time and others jump in the deep end....either way you're gunna have to learn how to swim. I think we decided on a Tuesday & had the rig bought by Friday....had the the house listed for rent by Monday, took a week to pack our stuff & hit the road by the following Tuesday....took about 14 days! Enjoy.......life is an adventure you can't experience sitting on the couch.

Larry, there's good and bad in all brands across all price ranges. CC had a good rep, lord knows I drooled over a few. If possible have it checked out by an independent RV tech that you trust. Take Jack's advisde and buy an extended warranty.

I think you posted the same concerns elsewhere. Like I said, I have had very few problems in over 100,000 miles on my Intrigue. By problems I mean a cracked exhaust manifold (Cummins), radiator leak(not a CC specific part), ride valve (not CC specific), fuel pump in the Hurricane(again not CC specific).

The more "gadgets" you have on a coach, the better the chance of having something go wrong and it doesn't matter what brand you buy.

Country Coach is back in business, by the way.

I don't think that CC had any more problems than typical for a diesel pusher with lots of amenities, and CC made a very nice coach. Very little in any motorhome is brand-unique anyway - chassis and powertrain problems, appliance problems, etc. can happen to any of them.

If you are expecting trouble-free operation, you are probably into the wrong lifestyle choice.

You will always read about problems here. If we have a problem, we ask on here how to fix it. We don't get on here and say..."just spent a month in the MH, everything worked fine."

Seems to me if you are concerned about your purchase, this question should have been asked BEFORE you bought it.
