We love our 08 Endeavor but in all honesty I would say you need to look at which coach offers you the best floor plan. Next would be to compare maintenance records. I would always lean towards the coach with the best set of maintenance records. I assume you are already aware of things like tire age etc. Also I could be mistaken but I think the Knight has an ISC 360 engine; so not a deal breaker in my opinion.

I concur with BDPreece, both are good coaches. Should be plenty of input from Monaco and HR owners here. But, the floor plan that fits your lifestyle would my choice. Good Luck!!!

One thing to check, I believe that in 2008, the Endeavor was on the RR8R chassis
with 8 airbags, while the Knight was on the RR4R chassis with only 4 airbags AND
the trailing arm failure problem. Given that, I'd head for the Endeavor.
(HR Endeavor maps to the Diplomat on the Monaco side, not the Knight).

If they both have acceptable floor-plans I would prefer the Endeavor. There are enough extras compared to the Knight to make it a better coach. (speaking as a Knight owner... The 2008 Knight is on the RR8R chassis.

Thanks for the correction on the Knight chassis. I didn't know which year they
transitioned to the RR8R from the RR4R and went by obviously faulty memory.

The HR Endeavor is higher on the totem pole. The Monaco Diplomat would be the endeavors equal. The knight is one model below the Diplomat.

Endeavor or Knight

[I picked up a beautiful 08 Knight 38 PDQ that was loaded and every bit as nice as our friends 05 Dip. They both run out equally well. I agree with the floorplan being what to look at. The driving will be very close to the same, but how you live in it will make the difference. Check out the floorplans, the chassis are basically the same.
