Inspire 40′

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

When it comes to high-end and bus-type motorhomes, the Country Coach name is one that
brings virtually automatic assurance of top quality and value for the dollar. Now, for
those not yet positioned to own a traditionally higher-end Country Coach, the company has
added a new, lower-priced series to its product lineup. The new Inspire Class A opens up a
world of quality coach ownership to a whole new series of buyers. The new Inspire enters
the market stickered at just $221,900 manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), which
places it squarely among a wide range of Class A diesel-pusher motorhomes available today.
A coach upfitted with a few select options raised its sticker to $234,525 MSRP, which again
is in line with other rigs of this class. Country Coach builds the Inspire using a factory
design and assembly philosophy called Kaizen, a Japanese term that in essence means
“continual improvement.” The net result is a coach that’s built to higher standards for
lower cost and with less wasted effort — in short, “lean manufacturing” is the goal. The
Inspire features a smooth fiberglass exterior, extra-clean details and full-body paint that
creates a visually stunning image. From its single-piece smooth fiberglass roof to its trim
fiberglass end caps and uncluttered storage compartment finish, this is one coach that
looks a lot better than its lower price might suggest. Top-quality interior appointments
include solid-surface counters, ceramic tiles, hardwood cabinets throughout, optional
leather seating surfaces and the usual high-grade carpet and fabrics. Buyers have a wide
range of interior options from which to choose. Inspire models are available with three or
four slideouts and with several floorplan and overall length options. Pick up the November
2003 issue of MotorHome for full test impressions and details on the Inspire 40′ — then subscribe to MotorHome so
you can stay informed on the latest motorhome tests and previews, products, technical
information and travel destinations. Country Coach Inc., (800) 547-8015, countrycoach.com
