What engine etc is it equipped with? More pics if you have 'em, like to see the front too, cockpit etc! Thanks for posting.

Oh, nice Chevy too
Hey thanks for all the kind words. It has a 6V92 Detroit, real nice older engine. I didn't want electronic engine, wanted something I could work on. It has 70k on it. No smoke and no leaks yet. They are known for both. I wanted to stay away from slides only because I spend more time driving that parked. If I was a long term parker I would have found something with slides. The coach drives like a dream and although some say they are under powered ( 325hp I think ) its fine climbing the steep grades with a little run at them. I don't think they is a coach on the road better fit for me than this Concept. I like that fact that CC only built ten of these in 89. It has lots of little extras that I am still finding.

That may be what they were going for . I'll take one guess though; those gauges will probably still be working long after ours quit right?

Gotta love it. Those coaches were built to last like tanks. With this one being one of ten she's a rare bird too. Thanks for the extra pics Bootjack!

Enjoy in good health and safe travels.

Regards,
W.D.

Bootjack---that looks great, they did a great job on the outside. Is that paint and decals? I wish my 90 looked that nice. Also, nice tub!

My first rv don't remember the year of it but is a Newmar Londnaire.
I had it for about four years and sold it for the same price I purchased it for and did nothing to it.
