There seem to be deals to be had, as well as leftover new units sitting on dealer lots. Are we asking for trouble considering a Knight? We'd like to get a new unit and these seem to have dropped into our price range now. But we don't want to be sorry.
We're aware the 2015 Holiday Rambler Ambassador uses the Cummins engine. Why is there no 2015 Monaco Knight?
Thank you for any helpful and constructive thoughts you may have - much appreciated!
The Maxxforce engine hasn't been discontinued. Monaco is no longer owned by Navistar who also own the MF engines. Monaco had traditionally used Cummins engines and is returning to its roots.
When ASV purchased Monaco/Holiday Rambler, they didn't continue production on any of the product line. They are currently adding models slowly as they redesign them. They may or may not produce a Knight.
The currently Monaco is providing tech support to all Monaco coaches regardless of who the builder was.
