We`re in Nappanee IN, & drove by the Monaco factory in Wakarusa -- There is at least 100 coaches sitting in a fenced lot,& several more scattered about the property -- This plant seems to be as large as the one in Coburn -- Bill Willard

The plants are twins, virtually identical. When we visited the Ind plant and while waiting in the lobby for the guide I needed to use the rest room. She started to tell me where it was and I said I knew. She asked if I had been there before and I said no but the plant is Oregon is identical. She agreed!!

I'm not sure I would want one of those coaches. I'm sure that the workers put forth their best effort building these coaches knowing that in 60 days they would be out of work.

cb5300 -- Charles -- We`re leaving for Upper Michigan in the morn(Trursday)-- Does your coach have VA plates? Drove by the Monaco Repair Center here in Elkhart, & a tech was in the lot beating the heck out of a Sig with a big hammer -- I think it had VA tags -- Bill Willard
