"...better than a Sportsmobile..."

Coachman Concord 4x4 expedition rv, better than a Sportsmobile - $79999 (colorado springs)



http://cosprings.craigslist.org/rvs/3541585502.html

Good looking 4x4 rig, but talk about dragging a boat anchor. What's the departure angle on that, about 5 degrees?

No affiliation.

It's for those folks who are looking for the extra challenge, once they have mastered a regular EB to the point that it doesn't feel huge on any trail anymore.

Re: "...better than a Sportsmobile..."

You know, I can even understand wanting 4x4 on something like this, but lockers front and rear?

Needs 40s and Ujoint kit to get it up a little and help that departure angle

I bet he figured with all the high centering he was going to do he'd need the extra traction from the lockers.

Re: "...better than a Sportsmobile..."

Funny! However, Coach House has actually done a few 4x4 motorhomes (smaller than this one, though). We looked at a 27 that was for sale down in Santa Cruz last year. A bit long for us, and it had the wrong interior layout for us, of the several that they offer.

We were actually at the Coach House factory in November, for a factory tour. I talked to the guy who built the 4x4's -- he said there are about a dozen or so floating around, in 22-27' sizes. They have a new model just coming out (first one is about done) that is a rear twin-bed variant of the one in the link below, with no slides. It's on a Ford E450 chassis. Might be pretty interesting as a 4x4 for "mild" off-road use -- certainly not a rock crawler.

Chinooks are pretty phenomenal, it's unfortunate they went out of business. I always figured I'd be in a Chinook baja if not for the Sportsmobile.
