Beaver

I have a buddy who wants to buy a 33 foot Beaver diesel coach.

Where might I pose questions to fellow/past owners,
is there a Beavers forum?

Thx

Hopefully by this point in time your buddy knows that later Beavers were made by Monaco. Though we Beaver owners would like to think otherwise, it's a Monaco.

!....or a Safari....or a Navistar?, (depending on when it was built).

As you know very few coaches are actually the coach that their nameplate implies.
The early Beaver coaches, (1974-1996) where built by Beaver Coaches Inc.... then by SMC, (1994-2000)....then by Monaco.

See: https://sites.google.com/site/beaver...er-coaches-inc, for links to the following:
Beaver Coaches Inc (1974-1994)
Safari Motor Coach Corporation (1994-2000)
Monaco (2000-2009)
Navistar (2009 to 2013)
ASV, Allied Specialty Vehicles (2013 to present)

Few Holiday Ramblers, Safaris, Beavers, Monacos, (and most other RVs), are really the coaches that the nameplate on them implies.

IMO, depending on the year your "Holiday Rambler Imperial 36 diesel" was built, it is:
1.) A "Holiday Rambler", (by Holiday Rambler Corporation, 1953-1986).
2.) A "Harley", by Harley-Davidson Motor Company, (1986-1996).
3.) A "Monaco", by Monaco Coach Corporation, (1996-2009).
4.) A "Navistar", by Navistar International, (2009-2013).
5.) An "ASV", by Allied Specialty Vehicles (2013 to present).

I had a 94 Safari Sahara until a couple months ago, I turned it over to my son in November. I purchased a 98 Beaver Patriot at the same time. I love the Beaver but miss the Sahara. I had more storage space in the 6' shorter Sahara but more living space in the Beaver. I really miss the side door under the awning. I miss the Docking lights on both sides. Not sure about air bags instead of springs though. I will make this Beaver what the Safari could never be. I like the use of Diesel more than Propane as I have a diesel genset and hurricane heater. More capacity for fuel. My propane lasts 10 times longer because it only uses propane for cooking and refer. It is getting harder and harder to get anyone to fill onboard propane tanks. I love them both and if Mat Perlof is still listening from up above, I want to say thanks. You made my life a lot better.

I was looking at the Sahara 3606 and really like it. Almost bought one a week ago but someone bought it from under me. Then I found the Beaver Patriot 33ft one. Man are they nice. One up in OR has it all but they want $48k. Too rich for me. Hoping I can find one cheaper! There are built and set up with all comforts one needs for full time living!

Actually, Monaco, HR, American Coach, Beaver & Fleetwood are owned and operated by: Allied Recreation Group, 1031 US 224 E, Decatur, IN 46733. There is still a Monaco repair facility in Coburg Service Center, 91186 North Coburg Industrial Way, Coburg, OR, 97408, Mon - Fri: 7:00am - 4:00pm PT, 877-466-6226.

All the RVs are now made in Decatur, IN and there is a service facility there, too.

What do you like about your Hurricane heater? Anything you don't like? What should I look for to ensure it's working correctly or for things that may cause problems soon? I'm looking at same Coach you have too buy. Never heard about problems with filling your Propane tanks...
