Me too.. Starts fine, runs fine, handles fine, with no mechanical issues whatsoever. I've seen the 40' crowd say the short chassis have "handling" issues... I'm still waiting to figure out what those really are. One things I did not like was the lousy Sachs shocks that came with the coach. Those were replaced with FSD's in the first year.

BTW- The control arm issue was also with Monaco. Apparently it's quite a thrill when that snaps at highway speeds

This was a problem on the Monaco Roadmaster 4 air bag/shock chassis in those years. Major engineering blunder for Monaco. It was known to be hard riding also. Source Engineering has 2 kits available to solve the trailing arm problem and the hard ride issue. I'm guessing both kits installed would be in the $5-6k range.
