I'll be back later to add my comments as we're Newmar "family" but looking at a Country Coach now. Just down to the $$ now!!

I'm researching and watching rigs in pretty much the same age range, but won't be purchasing until the fall (so don't worry!)

The Newmar Essex is interesting. Several available at good pricing compared to the Monaco family.

An IRV2 member just upgraded from his 2005 Essex to a newer Country Coach. I would love to know why these Essex rigs are so much cheaper and available. The original MSRP is certainly a factor, but there seems to be something else going on.

I'm completely new to the RV world, so I am just reading, studying and evaluating...

OP - This rig looks like one to consider... just had a price drop

Guaranty RV in Junction City OR has three Monaco's on their lot. We looked at all of them.

If you go into the Newmnar forum you will find this information it will give you a back ground of what they are all about.
If you do a search in that forum you will find many older Newmar owners and the excellent results they still enjoy in their older Newmars. ---- BROCHURE

Hard to beat the Dynasty's bang for the buck. I've looked elsewhere, too. Most of the other manufacturer's don't make air leveling standard until the top of the food chain. It is a show stopper for me.

The Monaco stays undervalued by the used market, which makes it a great buy. Everything I need to keep my Coach in like new condition is available on the open market. There is still the option of factory support, too, in the years the OP is talking about. There are others who make fine coaches for sure.

Last week I spent a good amount of time looking at 2007 Newmar Essex and American Eagle 45 footers. Both are fine looking coaches with excellent reputations! I can't imagine going wrong with either of them...

I don't know that much about the older Monaco's but I know they are well thought of.
