YES! A spot on assessment.
A 2011 Monaco, (in the Monaco world), is not a Monaco.
They ( I cant remember if it was REV or if thats who has it now) bought the brand and put a Bentley badge on a Kia.
08 is really hit and miss from what I have learned.
Before that they built coaches like they should.
Same with Beaver.
Monaco bought Beaver somewhere around 2004. Before that the Beaver brand was top of the line. Probably the most loyal owners of a brand EVER.
In the transition, they (Monaco) just never seemed to get Beaver back to what it was.

This is the importance of learning coaches and years of production.
Monaco has been making coaches for about the last 6 years and none of them are what the old Monaco was. None.
Country Coach just started back up after the name was bought.
Will it be a Country Coach or in name only?
I have my guesses.
