Exterior storage Monarch 33sfs

Can anyone tell me what the cubic ft. storage is on the 2009 Monarch 33sfs? I have looked online and can't find it. Looking at purchasing one but need to know if it has enough storage or if the full slide would leave it lacking.

Here are the measurements of the lockers with some notes.

Left side front to back in inches
Width Height Depth
36 x 30 x 20 Has an electrical fuse panel in it
30 x 30 x 25
45 x 30 x 28 Top 10" full width
45 ............ Propane Tank
36 ............ Water/Sewer
36 x 30 x 28 Electrical/TV entry with UPS and Converter

Right side front to back. in inches
Width Height Depth
36 x 30 x 20 Half batteries and switches, half storage
30 ............ Entry door
45 x 30 x 28 Top 10" full width
45 x 30 x 28
36 x 10 x 28 Top 10" above generator, exposed to weather, good for ramps
36 x 8 x 28 Bottom 8" under water tank.

When you do the math it totals around 125 cubic feet.

One point to make is the water tank is not under the bed so that whole area is usable
Width Height Depth
48 x 18 x 60 30 cubic feet.

Thank you and what would you say are the likes and dislikes about your 33sfs?

We did not go looking for this particular coach but knew we wanted no more then 33' and a gas chassis (hopefully a WH). Well we found just that at a dealer last October on a dealer lot with 5700mi and the SFS floor plan that we had not considered before but found it suited us in every way. We are pleased with every aspect of the coach and suprised we found one that is such a great fit for us. We have been RV'ers for 40 years and have had them all in that time and this one is one is the most accomadating and cosmetically the nicest (we have never owned high end coaches). One small thing is a banging noise going over bumps coming from the floor area somewhere around the galley. Dealer tells us it is from the large ram used to move the slide in and out and can not be corrected. I am hoping to find a fix for that. Beyond that no dislikes.
Good luck in your search.

We just wonder if the full length slide will give us problems...such as not retracting.

Almost word for word as dbray.
We were looking at entry level new models when the dealer showed us this 2 year old unit with 7000 miles, ours is a 2009.
Liked the interior fit and finish, liked the good fitting lockers doors and the big alcoa wheels. The full slide really opens the unit up.
Like the full body paint, easy to keep shined up with the clear coat.
Like the auto transfer switch, the smart EMS system, the seamless switch over from shore power to inverter power at the entertainment centers.
We use ours for getting away from the Canadian winters, works well for us.


It could use a little some space on the non slide side of the bed.
It could use a little more space behind the drivers seat when the slide is in.
Smallish main table, good for 3 people, 4 is a tight fit.
Another divider could be of use to separate the main area from the head if you have a guest.

We had a Bosch brake issue, not a Workhorse issue.

Several different manufactures offer a model with a full slide.
Big hydraulic rams should be able to move the slide.

Second full time winter, works well for us.

Dbray, i read not too long ago someone else complained of the banging noise like you. I recall there was a fix for that. Do a search and maybe you could find what it is. Best i recall it was not very complicated. Good luck as i am like you and hate squeaks rattles and bangs.

Never noticed the bang before.
We are on the move tomorrow heading to Laredo.
I am sure I will start hearing it now that someone mentioned it.
