  1. Seajay, I am also wanting an enclosed trailer, but it would be towed behind a 45-foot coach. I have seen them on the interstates and wondering how they are getting away with the length law each state has. The combined length has to be at least 70 feet.
  2. Brett, Once Again, thanks for all the information. I have joined the catrvclu, and now am searching for heating problems with the motor and fuel mileage.
  3. What kind of mileage could you expect to get with a Caterpillar 625-horsepower engine in a 45-foot Country Coach Affinity? I was told between 6.5 and 7.2, which I find hard to believe. Thanks.
  4. Michael Golden US Army 81-85 Infantry/ truck driver (ammo) Ft. Ord Ca. Glad to be part of this list. God Bless Our Troops
  5. Thanks again for the great information. The unit is in one of the side bay basements on a sliding tray I think. I have not inspected the Coach yet, just trying to get information from someone other than the dealer. Mike
  6. Chris, Thanks for the reply. That is about the weight I am looking at. Country Coach Affinity, 45 ft, so we will be in the same category. I have not bought the coach yet, hoping to buy in march. I remember driving trucks in to oregeon on I84, and always dreaded the mountain the truckers called cabbage. I know that with a 50,000 plus coach, can't expect great mileage. Thanks, Mike
  7. Brett, Like most of your posts or replies, thats an excellent idea. I will remember this one when hopefully I get our first coach in march 2010. Thanks Again. Mike
  8. Thanks again for the reply. As you can tell, I have not owned a motorhome before, but hopefully that will change in march. The coach I am talking about is the 07 Country Coach Affinity. I think we will be well pleased with the coach, and I will have to shower last. Luckily for me the wife, does not like a hot shower. You can certainly learn a lot on these forums, and I am thankful for finding this Web site, and for all the posts and replies. Have a Merry Christmas. Mike
  9. Thanks, Jack, for the reply. After reading other forums about water heaters and hot water issues, I was wondering about the Aqua-Hot system. I was told that way, you will have plenty of hot water and instant hot water. Is that true? Of course, the dealer trying to sell the coach is the one who told me that. Any more info would be greatly appreciated, or you can e-mail me privately. Thanks. Mike
  10. Can anybody tell me about the Aqua-Hot Heating System on Country Coach motorhomes. I was told that this unit controls the heat and hot water in the coach. Be patient with me. I am new to the FMCA forum, and am hoping to get my first coach in march 2010. Thanks. Mike
  11. Thanks Herman for the reply. 3 years ago, we rented an rv for a week and loved it. the wife of course is not wanting to travel fulltime right now, but I keep telling Her the time is right. I have traveled the country driving a truck, and never had time to really enjoy this country of ours. I will check out the 2 sites you told me about. Thanks, mike
  12. Thanks again Green Beaver. I really like the changes you made in your coach. I was hoping that a 2 year old cvoach would have all the bugs worked out of it. It has 12,000 miles on it, so it should be allright. Thanks Again, Mike
  13. Brett, The coach has the allison 4000 6 speed with 2 overdrive gears. Thanks, Mike
  14. Brett, Excellent information. Thanks, Mike
  15. Brett, I have emailed the dealer and waiting on the reply. As you can tell I am new to the rv forum, and have lots of questions. You are probably right aboput the Allison 4000. With the Cummins ISX 600 and the Allison 4000, mountain grades should not be a problem? Thanks, Mike
  16. Brett, Thanks so much for the reply. The coach that I am interested in is an Country Coach Affinity. The dealer says that it has an engine brake, but I think that it has the Allison 6000 Transmission. I am not sure about the tranny. Thanks, Mike
  17. I am presently looking at a motorhome with a Cummins ISX 600 in it. I have been use to traveling the country in an 18-wheeler over all 48 lower states, on different mountain grades. The 18-wheeler had a Detroit Diesel 500-horsepower engine with a Jake Brake. How does the engine brake on the Cummins compare to the Jake Brake on the Detroit Diesel? Thanks, mike
  18. Green Beaver, thanks for the reply. I am looking at used, because I have seen other posts about losing money as soon as you drive off lot. The one I am looking at, 07 cc affinity at a dealer. I do like the American Coach Eagle though. Thanks, Mike
  19. Can anyone compare the Country Coach Affinity along with the Fleetwood American Coach Eagle? I am new to the forum, and have posted one other post. I am considering buying my first coach in March 2010, and I really like the CC Affinity. I would like to think that I would be traveling the country for a year or so, and see if I really like the RV lifestyle. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have also heard that Country Coach is now in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, so I would assume that would cancel any warranty. Be patient. I am new to this forum, and have not figured out how to reply to any replies that I get. Have a Blessed Day.
  20. Green Beaver, Sorry about the toad ande thanks for the information on rvsurvey. I have already emailed them and chatted with Dave, so when I am ready to buy, I will certainly use them, since this will be my first coach and I will get a lesson about rv ownership.
  21. Thanks so much for the reply. The Affinity is at a dealer, but I think I will have it inspected before I buy it, because this will be my first rv. I really like the looks of it, and it does look like a rich man's coach, (I am not either).
  22. I am in the market for a used 2007 Country Coach Affinity. I have found one for a decent price, but am wondering about them. The only reviews I have read are negative. Can anyone help?
