Buying a motorhome is a life-changing experience – one that’s mostly all positive. It’s
enlightening to discover that, everything you’ve been told to the contrary, you really can
take it with you, wherever you want to go. Once the glow of ownership wears off, however,
the art of compromise begins. The most common lament tends to focus on fit versus function
– force designers and assembly personnel to spend time camping in their own creations, or
so the feeling persists, and motorhomes would be more durable, better designed and more
suited to their intended task. It may still be too early to determine whether those
questions have been answered with Alfa Leisure’s 2004 See Ya! Gold coach, but the project
was spearheaded by a motorhoming company president, Johnnie Crean, working from a single
directive: Build a no-options coach that is technically sophisticated yet user-friendly,
one that provides all of the features motorhome owners expect today — and make it
affordable. The See Ya! Gold rides on a Freightliner chassis channeling Cummins torque
through a six-speed automatic, providing heaps of hill-leveling power while returning
decent fuel economy. Some of the features of this diesel-pusher coach include a streetside
slide with dining table and four chairs, two very large curbside basement-storage
compartments, a residential feel created by the increased roof height, generous galley
countertops, appliances trimmed in stainless steel, a washer/dryer, an integrated
entertainment system and more. For more details and full test impressions on the See Ya!
Gold 40′, pick up the September 2004 issue of MotorHome magazine on the newsstand — then
