Beaver Motor Coaches


Are there any current or previous owners of a Beaver Motor Coach? I was interested to learn from your experiences.

Beaver motor homes are pretty much the same as Safari motor homes built in the same year.
However since there is no "Beaver, (or Safari), specific forum" here on iRV2, and because owners of both are welcome on the Monaco Owner's Forum,I suggest you ask your Beaver questions there.

OK, I'll guess here, we owned a 40', 2002 Beaver Patriot (purchased new). She had a Magnum chassis with a Cummins 400 ISL. The Coach was trouble free for the 11 years we owned her! We had a few "pick up" issues when we first purchased her but other than that she was a rock solid Coach!! And, I'm happy to say that after we traded her for our Newmar, she was purchased and is still in use!!

There is a Beaver owners' forum but unfortunately you have to own a Beaver in order to ask questions. That was the reason we crossed Beaver off of our list of possible coaches.

My first diesel pusher was a 2002 beaver Santiam ... Not knowing at the time much about the diesel pusher world...
But it ended up being absolutely great... It was beavers entry level coach even.. Great quality and was very nice..
For a older coach and the right price it would still be great...
