Yes.

I often have conversations with a fellow Prevost owner that has one of the few H3 country Coach conversions.

I never saw one and was just curios as I know Bob Lee didn't like the H-3 for some reason

That is interesting Jon.I didn't know that Country Coach converted any H-3'S .I looked at a couple of Liberty's H-3'S .They were super nice coaches.I think that most of the H-3'S came with OTR air.Did Country Coach use the Prevost OTR air or did they use their version of the OTR air? My coach has the Country Coach whole coach air system.Had a bad compressor when I bought it .I like to have never Found the compressor for it ,but finally did and it works great.My RV man was blown away!!

I don't know of any CC having real Prevost OTR. They hammered away at the marketplace claiming their "over the road air" was good because it saves space, fuel, etc.

Liberty almost exclusively has used Prevost OTR. Marathon would mostly use their AC system, but would build a coach with Prevost OTR.

Prevost will supply a shell with or without OTR.

We both learned something today. I didn't know CC would ever build a Prevost OTR coach.

Lol so we did Herb had a 40 ft CC with what he called the Frigette or hot rod ac but his last 2 have been Prevost OTR. I was told that was a 20+ grand upgrade on a Country Coach Prevost for factory air as conservative as he is I doubt he paid that much Roll Eyes

Idon't know if the Country Coach OTR would be worth twenty grand or not.Especially when (and I believe this figure is accurate)you could get Prevost otr for about half that.Both have their pro's an cons.One of the pros is the fact that the CC otr uses r134 and it does do a good job cooling ,but with all the hoses,fittings and three evaporators,a leak could be a bank account wrecker
