To tell you the truth, I have never heard anyone badmouth a Monaco.

Signature was a top of the line model for Monaco, so the basics are good. However, in a 11 year old coach, the state of maintenance is nearly everything. An abused or poorly maintained Signature is as bad as any other.

A friend bought a Signature last year that appeared to be a beauty except for some tired-looking carpet. When he took it to have the carpet replaced, he found that water leaks had caused subfloor wood rot in a couple places and spent a few thousand $ extra to get that fixed before the new flooring could be installed.

My wife and I have lived full time in an '03 Sig for over 7 years now. We bought ours in the spring of '06 and moved into it less than a year later. As another post said, the maintenance it has received means a great deal. I do all my own maintenance and know the coach pretty well.

Ours has been a joy to live in and I wouldn't hesitate to pull in the slides and head out to Alaska in the morning. If it has the ISM you are golden.

Feel free to contact me either here or PM with any specific questions. If it hasn't been abused, I highly recommend.

You obviously have great taste We owned a 2001 Dynasty for 8 years and now own a 2008 Signature. They are fine coaches to be sure! I own a small RV repair shop and do all of mine and several others' coach repairs so I know them inside and out. Happy to give any advice or "opinions" if you need it. Best of luck!
