Retired RV industry icon John C. Crean has teamed with his son, Johnnie R. Crean, founder and president of Chino, Calif.-based Alfa Leisure Inc., to create the See Ya! Founder Edition entry-level diesel pusher motorhome. The name has a natural ring, as the senior Crean is the founder and former chairman of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc., and was instrumental in the development of the company’s popular Bounder motorhome brand. “While (Founder) still has the best See Ya! has to offer…the Founder is scaled down for someone like me who doesn’t want a lot of gadgets and stuff,” John R. says in a signed letter in the Founder brochure. “My son and I have two different ideas about RVing. He prefers complicated gadgets to run everything as well as keeping him in touch with the outside world. I prefer a simpler lifestyle; playing cards or cooking, or turning on the TV or the radio without having to route it through some box.” Featuring an entry-level MSRP of $162,400, the no-frills, 36-foot See Ya! Founder is built on a 29,500 pound GVWR Freightliner XC straight rail chassis, powered by a 300-hp Caterpillar C7 diesel engine. It features 7’6″ carpeted ceilings and 42-inch deep, 6’2″ high dinette/foldout sofa slideouts. Other amenities include fold-down card tables with storage trays, dual-pane bathroom skylights, cabinets behind the window valances, residential refrigerators and solid-surface countertops with porcelain sinks.
