I really think this is the way I want to go. I really like the coach we have and its been virtually problem free since day one. I say virtually because there are always some issues ukwim.

I don't want to ever drive a Freightliner Chassis again and I don't won't to give up my MaxxForce Diesel engine. With Monaco as we know it gone it just seems to make sense to remodel.

I'm also content with a 42.5' single axle. I have no desire for a tandem.

Also, there is no used market for my current 2011 as it has over 100k miles on it....mmmmm.

Lots of good advice. Thanks to all.

Did anyone start the remodel and get hit w something unexpected or was it a simple process???

The 120 sounds perfect for what I want to do with the kitchen. IMHO Rv kitchens are overly large. I want a very small kitchen area.

Thanks.

Good question, we started our remodel simply wanting to replace the furniture and flooring. One thing led to another. The people at Truline were great to work with. If you can dream it, they can do it. At a reasonable price....

Here is the one we have:

http://www.trueinduction.com/dualburner.aspx

They also have a single burner portable and a built in double, all in 120 VAC.

We are just the opposite. As retired full timers, we eat in most of the time. We cook on a daily basis.

Closer to the OP's original question:

For a first class interior overhaul on your Monaco Coach, try

Dave and LJ's RV Interior Design
Address: 625 W Scott Ave, Woodland, WA 98674
Phone:(360) 225-7700

I know these people from doing business with them. Top notch work, down to earth people. If you plan on making a trip to the Pacific NW, this is the place.

I like your thinking. You have a coach that you know the maintenance history on, and best of all - you like it! Making it your coach with a 're-do' your likes, is an economical and IMO a rational decision to make. Key is it is what you want. Like the smaller galley, contrary to many full timers that desire more galley/counter space. (Why we have the coach we have today, is the galley more then any other reason. Well, I liked CC for other reasons. But it would not have mattered, cause if the DW is not happy - no one is going to be happy!).

Go for it, and get what you want. Some great recommendations. Also many good craftsman and values to found in the Oregon area. Oregon Motor Coach, Davis Cabinets, and many others - have many of the same cabinet makers that supported Country Coach, and I think Beaver and Western RV too. (Many others over the years.) So a good area to research too.

Best of luck,
Smitty

If I missed where you are from, I apologize, but A-Z Mobile RV in Paola, KS replaced my flooring in 1999 American Eagle with laminate wood floor on 45 in the entire coach. They also replaced front curtain and valances with our fabric we picked out. Replaced the old CRT TV's with thin LED TV's, new fixtures and toilet. They are very reasonable and honest.

Fox RV repair in Elkhart Indiana does a lot of total rebuilds. From wrecks to remodel. I had them do some work on a 99 coach I had back in 2007.

New floor down to the frame in places. All new floor coverings. All new dinning room set up. New valances around all windows.

Very good work & great to work with. Ask for Larry. He is the owner.
