Nope, normal height for most of them in that era is under 12' to the top of the air conditioner. it's close so I'd still measure if I were you. Those with 7' interior ceilings will be higher.

Our coach is 11' 11" to the top of the air conditioners with the system aired up. I can drive up to the door, release the air from the suspension and lower the coach about 4" before I drive through the doorway.

Most of the Monaco Dynasty coaches were low riders through the 90s and the early 2000s.

Thinking about a Project DP

You didn't mention a price category but since you asked.....

Foretravel

Quality coach, early 2000 models have one slide, great ride and handling, under 12' height and yes they made some 34' coaches. Only trouble is they are hard to find and usually demand a price. I believe the 34' came with a 350 hp or a 400 hp cummins.

If you aren't hung up on year models you can find some high quality coaches for a reasonable price...some well under $100,000. If you were to extend your search just a foot more to a 36' your choice options would expand greatly. As you can see by my signature we took the older route for a higher quality coach and have been pleased. Good luck in your search but most of all be patient in your search.

Not to hijack the thread, but have you considered contacting the Finance Company with an offer?

I did and they are at the point that they want what he owes. That may change with time, but they apparently aren't in the mood to deal right now.
