Our Monaco Windsor is home..!!

After waiting for two months to return to Florida to bring our new to us 41ft 2004 Monaco Windsor home, I'm happy to say, she is in my driveway. I was on my own and it was a bit nerve racking for the first few miles. She ran like a dream. 1650 miles later, my face was sore from smiling. I have six months to go and I will be retired and we are hitting the road for the winters...my life long dream is coming true. See you all on the open road..!

Before you go on that big long run, do a couple short weekend ones to sort out what needs fixing or what you need to purchase to make it enjoyable. Get used to it a little at a time.

Very Nice, Twoscoops!
After you settled down, after driving it for awhile, how did it feel to you?
My older one drives very good! No wander, no pulling, smooth and straight!

It sure is a beauty! Enjoy, now the fun starts! Rail!

Welcome to the Monaco family!

Guardrails 53, I was amazed that it drove so well considering the size. No wandering, did not get pushed around by any trucks going past me. Easily drove with one hand. My first day was from Ft. Myers, Florida to Edgewater, Florida where I spent the night with my father. Second day I didn't get going until 10:00am and made it to Fayetteville, NC. The third day was a long day, Fayetteville to the Adirondack Mountains in upstate NY. I think that day was about 750 miles or more. I cut over from 95 to 81 on 17 and then 88 to 87 north. 81 in Pennsylvania was terrible as was 88 in NY. It was a great trip and great experience. Looking forward to some long weekend trips and then off to the open roads this winter after retirement. New Years Eve and retirement fall on the same day so I will have to adjust when we leave...lol.

Congratulations !

Retirement and motor coach !!!

Now you wont need to be worried about staying busy and and finding things to do - and with a coach you wont need to worry about the kids fighting over your money when your gone - because there won't be any left.
