Hoping to buy a 36' Country Coach
 
I am looking for a 36' Country Coach with 3 or 4 slides and Cummins Engine. I have always been impressed by their looks. I am hoping to find someone with a clear title. I am located in Florida, but willing to travel some. I would appreciate any leads. Also, any advice on what to look for and what to avoid. Such as, any major problems I should be checking for? Thanks in advance for your help.:)

I can second Terry at Kenai Coach. He is a straight shooter and will not sell you a coach unless it is in top shape. He has every coach run thru by Oregon Motorcoach before he sells it.

I saw one listed in FL, three slide. Great price, right there.

If it has a Cummins diesel be sure to run the engine SN through Cummins to ensure no recall. They had issues for a few years around 2006. Can get very costly to replace an engine if you throw a rod!

Don’t be afraid of a pr emissions Cat, they are great engines. I had a 525 C13 in my Affinity and performed very well.

X's 2! (Never had a CAT!)....

But my research indicates that in the model years I've considered over the years:
-C12's are a KISS and all around well thought of engine
-C13's are a bit less KISS, while rewarding and solid power to weight ratio's
-C-15's are about the same as the C13's, but with King of the Road reputation in the trucking industry for the combo of power and MPG...

And my 'model years I've considered', were all Pre 2007 CAT Smog Emissions Engines...

Depending on the coach none of these three engines above, Pre 2007 emissions - would I be not pleased to be pushing a coach that met out other needs:)!

It's an 02, same as mine.

I gave you a fantastic lead, right in your back yard. Did you follow up on it? This coach if in CA or OR would be $90K easy.

I think that used Country Coach looks fantastic for the money.

Sadly, I called and emailed and texted many, many times. Nobody answered. I see its still listed, but a broker told us that it was sold???
Why someone would leave the listing up I don't understand. Any more leads in my backyard are appreciated Thanks.

Too bad but that doesn't surprise me. Failure to remove or mark sold listings is a problem with all these on line RV sale web sites.

Sorry it didn't work out for you, looks like a real gem of a coach.

Interesting.

I'm in Florida looking for a Country Coach as well.

Country Coach Intrigue, hopefully.
