Does anyone know if there is a database or list for Monaco MH's CCC (cargo carry capacity)? I don't believe the CCC is usually listed in the brochure and sometimes the salespeople act like they don't know what I'm referring to. Or maybe it's not an act. Thanks!

GoneFishin...
Just a clarification please....Are you asking for each Monaco coach... or are you looking for just yours?

Unfortunately, its not an act...This is one of the reasons people have such a bad opinion of salespeople..A lot (o.k. Maybe most) of them don't have a clue what they are selling and that makes it appear that they are only after the highest $$$ amount they can get from the customer..

The true CCC for each individual coach is different depending what options are installed.

Some manufactures state the CCC for a "standard" coach.

Some manufacturers weigh each coach as it comes off the line for an accurate CCC.

I believe a label with that info is required on each new coach.

The best possible way is to load it up, weight it, if it's to much, pull something out or move it around.

I don't have a Monaco but I found (with help from those on this forum) all of my weights posted on a sheet in the closet. I also found a copy in with all of the manuals and literature I received.

Our label is on the inside of the bathroom medicine cabinet. It's the first thing I search for when I look in a MH that's for sale. (I might even search it out if you invited me into yours Sorta kidding)

Some listings are in the wardrobe closet or galley cupboard. But some salespeople act like they don't know what it is I'm asking and have to search for it themselves. Some have been unable to find it. Sometimes I find it first and then ask about it to see how long it will take them to find it and explain it to me. And I usually am speaking clearly, "Where is the paper posted with the weight ratings for this MH? CCC, GVWR, etc"

We weighed our loaded MH last July (the 2 aixles) and then again last week we weighed all 4 points, so I know what ours is. (Very important and something everyone should be aware of.)

But as I wonder around sales lots while Rick shops the parts department, or when I look at other's coaches, I often wonder about the CCC. Call me strange, I guess. I was also wondering why ours is rated for 2 people when there is a queen bed, queen sleeper sofa and fold down dinette. And 7 seabelts.

I was hoping for a database, but Route 66 is absolutely correct, they are all different depending on added options. And SacsTC is correct also! Thanks!

wthomas1, We had to order an Owners Box from Monaco because our dealer had lost it. (Don't bring up bad memories.) We are still downloading manuals and spec sheets on some of our equipment. Thanks!

The dealer where I purchased both of my coaches takes the owners boxes out of the coach and stores them away. They give them to you at delivery. When I asked why, they said too many of them used to "walk away".
