Our 'new' 2004 Country Coach Inspire

I picked up our new Country Coach Inspire last weekend. Genoa floorplan. PO installed quite a few upgrades; wood flooring, 8 exterior cameras, 750watt solar system, 3000watt Xantrex inverter, LED lighting, residential fridge, dishwasher, etc.

Tires and windshields are brand new. Cummins 350ISC runs great; I got 9.8mpg towing my 1999 Blazer 4dr (65-67mph).

Flooring will be replaced; will be going back to a more original carpet/tile scheme, with tile entry.

With three slides, this will be a decent replacement for our recently sold '97, 38' Newmar Mountain Aire gasser; slightly lower build quality, but still a good quality coach, and from what I've read the DynoMax chassis is one of the best made.

Interesting that you say the build quality of the CC is lower than the Newmar. I've had two Dutch Stars and have found CC's to be better and our DSDP's had the optional full hardwood interiors.

Yep. Wall construction: Vacu-bonded vs hung wall. Hung wall is much stronger as it is thru-bolted to the frame.

I do really like the semi-monocoque, full steel CC construction, one of the reasons I went with CC.

Not an apples to apples wall construction comparison; I'm not sure how (if at all) the two styles can be compared.

Fantastic coach, but wouldn’t have the heart to carpet over those beautiful wood floors

You have a fantastic and well built coach that should serve you well for many years to come

Pics like that can be deceiving.


The floors are OK, but planks are starting to come up in places, split, etc. I think the worst of it is the main living area slide; hard to transition to the flat floor, the edge gets torn up and looks terrible.



I think we'll be happy with this rig for many years.
