We have owned our 2002 Country Coach Affinity for just under 5 years now. We have added about 30,000 miles. In my opinion our Country Coach is a well made and good performing motorhome. Is it better than the other motorhomes out there? I don’t know, but will say that it is by far the best of the motorhomes that I have owned or rented. I will list a few reasons why I am of this opinion.
- I enjoy driving it. It took me a little while to get used to the size, but after doing that I find that I look forward to time behind the wheel. It is steady on the road even in wind or big trucks passing you. It goes up or down big hills and mountains with ease, and does not overheat. On good roads it is almost silent at highway speed.
- It is beautiful inside and out. First class materials are used everywhere. High quality leather upholstery. Beautiful carpet and floors. Custom Corian countertops. Top end fixtures, lights, shower, faucets, wood, wood finish, paint, clear coat. And so on. Our clear coat is starting to have some problems on the curved part of the roof. But the paint itself is amazingly color fast after 12 years in the sun.
- Top Quality mechanical and electrical. CAT C12 motor that has plenty of power and seems to be very reliable. Wires are all laid out carefully and are marked. Two heating systems. Diesel aqua hot type and roof heat pumps. Two hot water heating systems. Diesel boiler and electric heat. Built in surge protector and water filter. Basement doors hung with piano hinges for precision and durability. Well made slide out trays in basement. All electric coach with dual inverters and all AGM batteries. All brass yacht type catches on cabinets. Very well insulated. R20 roof and dual pane windows.
- The high opinion of most owners and motorhome owners. Many times the opinions of people at large means something. In this case the almost uniform high opinion of others of the Country Coach product concurs with mine.
Is our Country Coach perfect, no. I have things fixed all the time. But when you use something like this you always have a list of things needing attention.
If I were to buy another motorhome today I would first look for a Country Coach. I am happy with my decision to buy five years ago.
