We can not speak about other coaches, since our first was our current one. We did a lot of research and became persuaded that CC was a fine coach. In our case, we did a lot of reading on many RV bulletin boards. One of them (sorry, I can't provide a reference... ) described in detail someone's purchase experience. They described visits to various factories, discussions with many salespeople, and eventually their purchase and first year on the road experiences.... If you can find that posting, you might find it helpful.
As for us, we bought a used CC... and have been impressed with factory support, the tight-nit CC owners groups, and the ride/comfort of the coach. (Even though we bought the coach used, we have had factory tech's fix minor things on the coach for free at CC rally's.)
I've talked with the CEO of CC and believe they are very interested in the high end buyers. We have a 36 foot coach, well equipped (very very well equipped)... but CC is moving more towards the longer coaches. If you don't mind the parking and towing constraints of the 45 foot coaches, then for sure the CC should be one for you to consider. We tow an enclosed car hauler trailer, so we can't have a 45 ft coach.... too long to be legal when towing the trailer.... but the rear bath model does look interesting...maybe later....:-)
Best of luck
