2003 Country Coach Lexa Alexandria 515 * DynoMax Chassis
CAT C-15 515 HP * Double-Slide * 48,500 Miles

Coutry Coach state-of-art-motorcoach lineup.It was debuted at the Califfornia RV show in Pomona,California, in October 2001, the Lexa created an instant stir of interest in the high-end motorhome marketplace. The Lexa's futuristic design includes large flush-mount, awning-style windows and a smooth, dynamic, European look inside and out. Motorhome enthusiasts will appreciate its panoramic full-height windshield, integrated hidden bay latches, and LED running lights.

Country Coach's exclusive DynoMax semi-monocoque chassis and features a Dana/Kirkstall independent front suspension. The coach is powered by a Caterpillar C-15 diesel engine rated at 515 horsepower with 1,650 foot-pounds of torque at 1,200 rpm. A six-speed automatic Allison World 4000 MH transmission connects the engine to the drive axle. The Lexa boasts the most powerful engine in the Country Coach product line.

All coach frames are designed and manufactured (not simply assembled) at the company's facility in Junction City, Oregon. Pride of ownership at each station and at each inspection point, of which there are many during the course of constructing the motorhomes, is readily apparent in the quality of workmanship. The technician doing the work signs off on each step of construction using a light pen, and then his or her work is inspected and signed off on by another employee charged with the task. As each component assembly is completed, it is again inspected and signed for. This process continues until the entire coach is completed, with the exception of paint and final interior touches.

Lexa designers developed a sleek new look for the coach. At first blush, it appears to have no awnings; in reality, all of the equipment is hidden away behind the roof fairing. This design allowed the engineers to disguise the electrically controlled Girard awnings above the roofline. With the touch of a button, the awnings appear out of the top of the coach. If the wind picks up while the awnings are deployed, the system automatically retracts them before damage can occur. The satellites and roof air conditioners are also concealed.

The coach has sleeping accommodations and seat belts for four. Our test coach was equipped with a sofa bed behind the driver's seat and a couch behind the navigator's recliner. Aft of the couch was the dining table, which could expand to accommodate four people; two of the chairs can be stored in the bedroom closet when not needed. The galley rides behind the sofa bed.

The radiused wood surround of the driver's compartment between the pilot and copilot seats has a tray and a cup holder formed into its top. The tray is a nice place for eyeglasses, a flashlight, or a book.
 Driver can easily find a comfortable position, thanks to a reclining leather captain's chair; dual pull-down, height-adjustable armrests; and the ultimate in an adjustable steering wheel/dashboard. An electrically adjustable, custom-contoured dash featuring a six-way-adjustable instrument cluster has been designed specifically with the driver's comfort and convenience in mind. It moves in conjunction with or independent of the steering column, allowing the driver to electrically move the dash panel up and down, or tilt it forward and rearward.

The fit and finish of the Lexa, extremely well done, as it should be in a high-end coach of this quality. Attention to detail is fantastic, right down to the Panasonic 7-inch dash-mounted color backup monitor. 
The coach does have a Bose radio/surround sound system. Lexa, all window coverings (windshield privacy curtains and side window shades) open and close electrically. The windshield privacy curtains are controlled by two switches located in a panel behind the driver, and the optional side window silhouette shades in our test coach were controlled via a Phillips universal remote control with touch-screen buttons. Lexa to use the Phillips universal remote technology, so we will not go into much detail about it. The Phillips remote control had a touch-screen menu that lists all the systems this one device activated, including the front and back televisions, the DVD player. The Bose Surround Sound system is controlled by its own remote.Below the cup holder on the copilot's side is a control panel full of switches for a variety of lights, including the porch and entry light; the battery disconnect; the storage bay door locks; the power sun visor; the step cover; and the entry step switches. The passenger side of the dual-control dash heater and air-conditioning zones also can be controlled from this panel. Above the cup holder, a concealable panel contains controls for the front awnings. (Another remote controls all four electric awnings, so they can be opened from the outside while making sure they don't hit any obstructions.) Country Coach and HWH. The corners of each slideout are equipped with an electrically actuated serpentine hardware system. These systems work independently of one another to extend or retract the slideout and lock it in place.

The slideout in the galley and living room is 13 feet 2-1/2 inches long by 17 inches deep. It is controlled by a keyed switch in the main control panel, located just behind the driver. Also in the panel is the second Coach Command screen, two LINK 2000 battery monitors/inverter controllers, the control panel for the central hydronic heating system, the water pump switch, and a variety of other switches.

The bedroom slideout measures 6 feet 10 inches long by 17 inches deep and is controlled by a keyed switch in a bedroom cabinet.

The software necessary to drive the serpentine hardware uses a language called CAN (Control Area Network) electronic protocol. This technology was adopted by HWH so that it could combine the electronic control of the slide rooms with the electronic control of the coach's leveling system, so only one computer system would be needed. A fully electric leveling sensor is used in place of the traditional mercury switch, resulting in a tighter tolerance in coach leveling. (The CAN electronic protocol is also used to control the tag axle, which reduces the number of mechanical parts needed, such as solenoids and relays.)
Nearly hidden in the ceiling is a 46-inch LED back lit Samsung monitor, which swings down at the touch of a button. Whether you're watching a DVD, or something via satellite, you'll enjoy it. Combine this huge monitor with the full surround sound of the Bose Lifestyle 30 home theater system, and it's probably the most entertainment you've ever seen outside of a movie theater.Just aft of the galley, through a pocket door that can be secured open or closed, is the center-aisle bathroom. On the curb side is a washer-dryer unit topped by a spacious shirt closet. Next is a separate area that houses a vanity sink with storage beneath and a medicine cabinet, as well as a residential-style ceramic toilet that uses air pressure to force-flush.
On the street side of the bath area, the dominating presence is the round glass shower enclosure. Inside the shower is a fixed showerhead and a hand-held wand, as well as a convenient seat. A second sink and a medicine cabinet are on the wall next to the shower.The 50-amp shore cable is stored out of sight on a powered reel.

Another feature that was placed on my long list of "likes" was the dual fuel fills. Just behind each front tire is a lockable fuel door, both of which feed the 145-gallon fuel tank.
