Monaco Camelot and 'higher' models, Holiday Rambler Scepter and 'higher'. Monaco brochures are online, and some list the hierarchy of the models.

All Entegras have side radiator.

My 2003 Beaver had a rear radiator, and although it never became a major issue, I am sure that some of my maintenance bills were higher because of the more difficult access to the engine. I was always waiting in fear for the day when major work would be needed and the rear radiator would be in the way. Fortunately that day did not come during the 10 years that I owned it.

I'll buck the trend...mine has a rear radiator and I prefer to have it back there so that I can have the storage space that is taken up when it is on the side. I can pull the access panel on the floor in the back bathroom and see everything on the engine that I would need to get to. If I need major work done to the engine, it would be something beyond my arthritic capabilities and costly enough that paying to have the radiator removed and put back would be a "drop in the bucket" in the scheme of things.

I can see where it would be beneficial to some, but, not all of us are able to do a lot repairs ourselves and put aside money in a "repair fund" to handle that eventuality and the storage space I gained is more than worth it to me. I am like another poster here...floor plan and storage are much more important to me than where the radiator is. Had our unit had a side radiator, I would still have bought it because the floor plan was exactly what we were looking for, as luck would have it, it also had a rear radiator and additional storage.

I had a 1992 Beaver on a Gillig chassis with a Cat and side rad.
I now have a 1996 Holiday Rambler on a Spartan chassis with a Cummins and a side rad. There are a lot of them out there. Just keep looking,it's worth it. I have had rear rad and side is far easier to work with and keep clean. JMHO

Another thing to consider is which side the DEF tank is on.

Just to clarify, they don't TYPICALLY install side radiators just because the coach is more expensive. They install side radiators because the heavier coaches and coaches with larger motors need more cooling than a rear radiator can provide. Consequentially, heavier coaches and ones with bigger motors are more expensive.

My 97 Imperial with a smaller 8.3l Cummins had a side radiator on a Spartan chassis. My current Panther has a side radiator and I wouldn't have it any other way. My alternator went out 2 weeks ago and it took me about 10 minutes to replace it. I can't imagine hanging upside down throughout the hatch to replace it or the belt.

This is an interesting point where side rads can give more cooling than rear rads. Had not thought about that before. Can you elaborate on why side rads have more cooling capacity? Larger rads? Larger cooling volumes? Bigger fans? Faster fans? Better control on fan cooling speeds/loads independent of engine speed?

Inquisitive minds want to know.

Brian.
