I am thinking of buying a monaco motorhome and I would like some opinions on how they hold up and if they have any problems. I am a newbie, never had a rv before.

lovelylynn, welcome to irv2.com. Although I have not owned a Monaco product they are a well built unit (especially the higher end units). All rvs can have problems from time to time but if you take your time, do your homework and wiat for the right unit; it will come along at a good price and you will be much happier than if you let impulse buying take over.

Welcome to irv2 also, you haven't said what Monaco,year or model, used or new. I have two friends that have them one is happy other is not. Motor homes are an expensive item if your not a happy camper with it it won't get any better. If you see one that you like maybe you should rent one to see if you are intimiated by it, when you drive it. There are alot of systems on a MH that you will have to become familiar with, also most Monaco's maybe diesel, something else to consider plus 40' long. I'am not trying to scare you off but you have to consider what I have said. If you have handeled large vehicles you may not have a problem. Some of us have started with smaller coachs an work our way up. Monaco does have gas MH's. So if you can give us some info in what you like we can maybe help you. ---"007"

Lovelylynn---We have a 2002 36'WDD Admiral("dreaded entry level")coach and couldn't be any happier. It is comparable to the Monarch in the Monaco line,I believe.

The factory service, in Wildwood Fl. is great, if you need them. Monaco definitely intends to keep the owner happy.

Hi Lovelylynn and welcome to irv2 This is a great site with great people. Any question you have will get a variety of answers. We have a 2001 winnebago adventurer 35 ft gas that we love. We did a lot of asking , reading and comparing--felt that the winnebage gave us the best value for the money. We are now looking for a four slide with a particular floor plkan and the only one we found we like is the Monaco Knight. I wanted to find a winnebago with the floor plan but they dont have it yet. I really like the basement air and the Monaco products only have roof airs. The monaco products do seem to be a better quality then a lot of coaches we looked at in this price range--so good luck with your search. ps if you want a nice 2001 35ft, let me know we have it listed on irv2 classified or email me for photos and more info. at buyty@aol.com
