Monaco and Country Coach build some 36-38' 3 and 4 slide coaches back in the '03-'05 time frame. Both manufacturers build high quality coach which made great full time homes. The Monaco Dynasty is a great bang for the buck coach.

Hi Steve

Thanks for the tip.

Looks like 36'-38' is the sweet spot

I like what i see in Dynasty - chassis and floorplan

Which models of country coach fits these specs?

thanks
jim

"Suitable for fulltime living" is very much dependent on you. I know somebody who full times in a 26 footer with no slides. You really need to look at floor plans that are suitable for your needs and only then consider length and number of slides.

That said, Tiffin's Allegro Red comes with quad slides as short as 33 ft.

Are you looking new or used? There are no new Country Coaches, but I prefer used anyway.

Wow! I think not many people would describe a $500,000 coach as having "great bang for the buck! Don't get me wrong - it's a gorgeous coach with a lot of features, but I never thought of it that way.

The Aspire and Intrigue in those years were and are great coaches.

Gary,

The "bang for the buck" is because the Dynasty shared a chassis with its Executive and Signature siblings. This makes the Dynasty a highly desirable used full timing coach.

Hi Gary

I was only thinking of used ones.
The maximum length of 36' to 38' is primary requirement.
I like to visit state parks and many won't fit long coach - in
terms of wheel base ie. turning radius while backing into a
campsite.

The floor plan comes next in order of priority.

I couldn't do 26' so i am in the hunt for 33' to 38'
Hence the number of slides in question.

thanks
jim

We have full timed for 8 years in a 40' 3 slide coach. For us that is the "sweet spot". We don't really find ourselves wishing for more room but are glad for the room we have.
