Roger, you haven't given us enough information. We need to know the model of the coach?

Some background. Beaver Coach was purchased by Safari Motor Coach in 1993.
Then in 2002 Monaco coach purchased Safari and along with it came Beaver.

Beaver manufactured several different models:
Baron, Santiam, Contessa, Monterey, Patriot, Patriot Thunder, and the Marquis was the top of the lineup.

A 2003 model will probably be on a proprietary Beaver Magnum chassis. I wouldn't worry about independent front suspension. As far as I know none of the Monaco diesel coaches had an independent front end and the Roadmaster RR10S is one of the smoothest riding chassis built.

Also, Beaver coaches are known for their incredible hardwood inlay woodwork. The Beaver Marquis has the most beautiful woodwork of any coach made including the million dollar plus coaches.

You can check the various models and values at NADA:

97 Monaco Windsor- Sold
07 Monaco Executive McKinley- Sold
04 Monaco Signature Chateau IV

check out the Beaver "Chassis History" link in my signature line. There may be some helpful info there regarding the chassis types and differences between years.
