I bought a 2008 from a private party with just 2500 miles on it and have gone on a couple of long RV trips with it. Mine is the 21Q model which is 26' long . It is a special design which Camping World spec'd out and has a huge 103 sq. foot cargo section accessible from outside. I love the layout inside too. I absolutely love this RV . Havent had any problems with it now its got 18,000 miles on it. Have you had any trouble with yours ? It is so manueverable around town that its a real dream to drive. I do wish it got better gas mileage however, since i get 10 mph going 65 mph with the a/c on ..but then again, we're talking a 10,000 lb. vehicle that catches the wind pretty good with the bunk-over-cab .

Tell me how you like yours.

There are not a whole lot of RVers here let alone one specific brand. We are full time class C owners too but not Coachman.

You will have an easier time finding many many like yourself in an RV only forum

Just search coachman class c in the search or go directly to the class c forums.

I already belong to RV.Net and participate in the Class C. Room occassionally. Just thought id try in here too. Are you one of those Full Timers that have sold virtually everything ...or...did you keep a home base ? The thought has crossed my mind since im a Single. Regards.

Yea I am one of those full timers that sold everything, not virtually.....I mean everything. But it was more an economic thing. I am like the photoguy everyone was giving thumbs up to in that place we can no longer mention. I considered telling my story but cant do it. All I can say is I am a victim of this economic depression too.

But ya know what? I love it. If I dont like my neighbor I just turn the key and go. If I dont like the communist rules of one park I turn the key and move. If I get sick of the scenery I just turn the key and move.

Buying the RV was a luxury during better times. Now I'm glad we have it and have no desire to own a wooden home. I can clean all my 200SF in half an hour, what does it take to clean a big house? We are fixin to head out in short order though I love Texas. I'll be back though.....

Well, more power to you ! Ill bet alot of other folks are full timers for the reason you gave. Its good to have an RV big enough to live in as a fall back . I know what you mean about inconsiderate neighbors ; its better to move on, than to shoot them ! Happy Trails !

Hi Bill. I did have a small bit of water coming in thru the little kitchen sink window if the wind is blowing the rain in that direction..but havent seen any coming in for awhile now. No roof leaks fortunately. Ive fixed a few annoying rattles in the coach area and fastened a ground connection under the coach area that was very loose. At 60 mph with the a/c on, with a low cargo load, I get 10-11 mph and keep it out of passing gear when going up hills . I guess considering loaded up with driver, its coming in around 10,000 lbs so 10 miles out of gallon of fuel seems reasonable although i wish it were better ! Ive made quite a few modifications/additions which adds to the enjoyment of RVing in this rig . I love the huge 102 cu ft. exterior storage bin for larger things and theres tons of interior cabinet space -- more than what i use. I find if i dont park it pretty level, the fridge doesnt work well . dave

Default 2008 Cochman Concord

Thanks for your feed back. I am taking my Concord out this Mounth and
try it out. I do have over a 1000 mil. on it now. Some small things were fixed but not all. I don't understand why it takes so long to get parts for a unit when you pay out so much money for one. But I still love the unit.

Yes, do let me know how it performed. Sounds like youre going to Quartsite, AZ ?? Ive never been but want to. Maybe Feb. of 2011 if God allows. Since i chatted with you, I developed a small rip in the roof membrane from overhead tree branches...and got alot of water in the bunk area. Had to pull up the trim , dry it out real good, spray down some bleach, and of course fix the roof tear. Its alright now. Im going on my Florida Coastal RV Trip in a few more weeks where i go all the way around FLorida via the coast incl. the Keys. Will be nice to get away.
