They can be replaced with a better bushings but it sounds like a fairly big Job. I think if they are worn out the coach can "wonder" pretty badly.
Kramer, thanks. I will check them. I haven't noticed any wandering but I'll still have a look.

Ours is R-2200, with 8 bags, side rad, and 30'. As well as I could determine it wasn't affected by the frame/suspension problem mentioned previously.

Dean, two of my good friends, and I all have older Monaco's! Terry, "Harley1994" has a 1993 Dynasty, 36', 8 bag air ride, semi monocoque, side radiator! Ron Spradley has a "95" 32' Windsor, 8 bag air ride, semi monocoque, side radiator! And I have a "96" Windsor, 38', 8 bag air ride, semi monocoque, and a side radiator! Ours are all the same underneath, just the wheelbase is different, all are RR,(raised rail), all tube steel construction, completely "semi monocoque" the steel tubes are built in a bridge work all the way up the side walls, and the steel tubes go all the way to the roof support, across and down the other side! Built like a tank, very little flex, and solid!
Monaco went to a wide body in "96" and I just found this out when we measured Ron's and mine when they were sitting side by side at my son's house! I did not believe this till we got the tape out and measured them inside wall to inside wall! Ron's "95" was 3 inches narrower, (give or take a little) than my "96" on the inside!
Monaco went to a aluminum side wall tube construction in 2002 I believe, aluminum tube above the floor line, and up over the roof! Still semi monocoque but aluminum tubing above the floor line to save weight!
Monaco also started to add slide outs in 1997!
I love mine, drives great, no wander, no play, very easy to drive! Rail!

The 4 bag chassis had the trailing arm cracking issue,
and the other "cracking issue" (vertical support and X-frame was in the RR10 with Tag axle.
