Message out to see if any additional information about the 2023 "coming soon" Coachmen Concord. I saw other threads that had a floor plan from Motorhome Magazine Oct 21?
I have reached out to Coachmen and hear Information forthcoming later in the year but seems like a long time out and then available in 2023.
Looking to step down on size from 38' Class A but have a few desires:
Inverter to run TV/Sat and other systems while not plugged in. Have residential fridge now and works great but tough on batteries. I have four GD and 500W solar currently.
Furnace technology and Water Heaters- anything new out there that will be on this unit for less battery drain for Furnaces and quieter Water heaters. I believe demand water heater will be a feature but do those have to have plugged in or generator to get instant hot water or are they also propane driven. Don't want to start gen to get some instant hot water. My Furnace and Water heater on my class A are both under the king bed and unless I turn both off overnight its like a battle for noise supremacy.
4 house batteries/Lithium Option/cold weather package like Isata's
Raised Ground Clearance from past models- reduce dragging of the sewer pipes and tail.
Enclosed in storage septic / water systems vs. exposed out doors.
OCCC - Seems the past were challenged in the 1200 lbs range especially the 300TS triple slide.
King Bed/Washer/Dryer (the article last year seem to show this option). what are floor plan options.
Propane / Electric fridge for boondocking vs. all electric / residential.
2 - AC's
50 amp Genset
Will it have a radius styling like past models or should I look at the Forester C's with the Trekker cab over replacement?
Where will TV be located in living area - Cab Over or other.
32' - 34' or so in length
Anything new out there on Ford chassis for this Concord that would allow additional OCCC and ground clearance... Maybe a 4x4 / AWD option. Is it possible it is moving to the Ram chassis like Isata 5?
Just throwing out some wish list items as I research the next RV.
Not sure if Brian Clemmens with Forest River is over the Coachmen Concord project but would be great to hear he is and any information he can share.
Your best bet would be to start working with a dealer and see if and when they are able to order and customize one for you. With supply chain issues, they are having trouble getting current models out the door... at least that's what I read. People are waiting months for rigs that they've ordered.
I contacted coachmen about it and they said they were still working on the prototype but the unit would be available and on lots Q1 2023. I don't know if its going to be all new and abandon the previous body style or what, guess we will wait and see.
Rv lee thanks for the follow up message. I too had reached them via email a couple months back and same info. They did say dealer preview in September meeting then posted on website after that and possibly order just after that for Q1 delivery.
Really interested if this will click most of the boxes.
We will see, I really liked it the way it was perhaps with some interior updates (white cupboards etc), solar, lithium, on demand hot water etc. I really hope they aren't going to just slap the concord name on a sprinter like Jayco did with the Melbourne and Winnebago did with theirs that had the same body. Unfortunately thats my gut feeling.
