Older winsor 36pbd

We are considering replacing our 2001 Dutch Star which we totaled and are researching a 36 ft Winsor pdb 2002 with the Cummins ISC 350 hp engine..

Does anyone know of inherient problems or a reason we should not consider the coach if it is in good repair and properly maintained ?

Does anyone have comments concerning this coach?

Thanks for any input.

The Monaco Windsor is a great coach. It's built on a Roadmaster 8 air bag chassis with a side radiator.
You can download the original brochure here:

That should be a good coach if it's been maintained. The only issue with that year seems to be the CAPS system on the Cummins. It can be expensive to fix if it has issues, but it's fairly easy to catch the early symptoms and fix it before it causes any significant damage. You might want to go to the Cummins subforum and do a search for CAPS and read up on the problems and cures. I think the CAPS system was used from 1999-2002.

I have a 2002 Windsor 40ft. Purchased from original owner last year. Love it! Well built. Have some paint checking on the dark colors but for the age itís a solid coach. Good luck ! Send pic Ray

Hi Snail1; As others have responded, the Windsor is a great coach. My first Windsor was a 2000 32' pb. Had it from 03 to 12. No real problems. Current coach is a 2001 34' PBD Windsor. Also no problems. In my opinion it all comes down to the how well the previous owners have taken care of the coach. This applies to the chassis as well coach itself. The Windsor and the Dynasty of those years are rock solid in construction. As long as the coach has been well taken care of, it should give you years of good service at a good price. You might want to get samples of all the fluids and have them analyzed for any problems. Repair of the chassis components can get expensive. Don't forget about the generator too. Make sure it switches over and runs all the electrical like it should. You also might want to hire a qualified RV inspector to go over the coach and give you a detailed report before you purchase, unless you feel qualified doing it yourself. Any of the above could save you lots of bucks if somethings are not as they should be. Have questions? This is the place to come and ask. Owners here like myself will be glad to share the knowledge we have acquired of the years taking care of the beast. Good luck on your research and hopefully purchase.
