No more Concords?

I was on the Coachmen RV site today and noticed that all remaining Concord floor plans are Dealer Stock Only. So apparently it has been killed off.

We love ours and have no plans to trade it or upgrade anytime soon. Just want to use it more.

I wonder how this is going to hurt the trade value of those units.

I am sure it will go up! They will now become "Rare and Valuable"!

In reality, I doubt it will make any real difference.

As most appliances, fixtures are generic across the industry and readily available, I don't see it making any real impact on the value.

Just got a text from Coachmen, the last Concord rolled off the line 2 weeks ago, no reason was given me. They said that it shouldnít effect any owners with this change.

The only thing that I think could be a problem down the road would be if a owner had to replace some upper cabinets being the curved upper wall. Other that they are all the same as far as parts go. He told me that he doesnít understand the reason why being he is only the warranty manager, heís not privey to those corporate master minds. There is going to be a lot sitting at dealers unless they really drop the price, if I was looking for a new unit, I donít think I would buy a model that has been discontinued, it would have to be deeply discounted. Iím not planning on buying a new Class C , and now I have all the bugs worked out . Knock on wood. Donít understand why they did this, but by these forums most are buying there other models not the Concord which I really like. If someone finds out why they stopped the line, please post it.

The only major issue I could foresee would be having to replace a major body component like a front or rear cap or possibly a slide or door.

I agree that all the smaller stuff is readily available.

I may be wrong but I thought I saw FR offering Foresters with over cab bunk or without. My favorite Forester 2801QS is gone also. I hate those overhangs over the cab.

the door would be okay, I just had one replaced in August, they just pulled it and and made a templet, sent it off and I had a new door 3 days later. Now the the caps could be a problem.

I see also that Winnebago has killed off the Aspect and Cambria products, an RV that, to me, is similar to the Concord. I was told by a prominent Winnebago dealer that the company is going to focus on their mid-priced products and make them their up-scale units in the product line. I translated this to mean they are going to focus on building cheap RVs that are affordable and sell in higher volume instead of going after the lower volume luxury market. This trend in the industry will make it more difficult to buy a well built RV, like the Concord, if that’s what you’re interested in.

You are correct; most Sunseeker and Forester class Cs (but not the Chevys) are available with what they call the optional Trekker cap with entertainment and storage, rather than a bunk. We bought one with the Trekker cap because we also dislike the looks and difficult cleaning of a bunk overhang.

That's easy enough to fix with a swivel mount.

Interesting and good news. I will be interested to see if they maintain the current general chassis and floor plan layouts with some upgrades or do a complete redesign with something else and just slap the Concord name on it.

I donít know either did Jason, he said that he was happy they decided to bring it back. I was talking to him today because I couldnít fine a shut off vale to the fresh water tank, I didnít want to add antifreeze by just switching the outside valve, he told me off the pump there was a valve to turn on the the fresh water line. Well I tore the whole thing apart I guess they forgot on mine, I went to Ace and bought a in-line valve and in stalled it. It shuts off the the fresh water to the tank. He will get back to me in the AM. I want to make sure that I donít get any antifreeze in that tank. Still not sure if that will stop it. Heís checking said I should have had one in that line, we will see, Iím not doing it until they tell me itís correct

A swivel mount won't move the tv from above the cab to across from the couch.

this is true, plus you canít open the cabinets it sticks out to far, my neck has a problem with the location. To bad they didnít put it in the counter and then it would rise when you wanted to watch it.

Wahoonc, did you ever fine a valve on the fresh water line to the pump strainer where that tank line hooks into the strainer of the pump? He says itís a chrome shut off valve between the tank and the pump? I pulled every access panel including the black center panel in the bedroom where the tank is located I canít find it anywhere, did you ever find one? Itís surpose to be on the white braided line from the pump strainer to where it connects to the blue plex at the low point drain area behind the R/A vent.
