2007 Monaco Diplomat

New to RV ownership and living. Became empty nesters with two golden retrievers. Jumped in with a Class A diesel pusher for weekend getaways mainly. Chose the Monaco with 37k miles as a good value point being a 2007. A little maintenance catchup and TLC and we’re hoping for 10+ years of enjoyment.

Nice Coach!! It won't disappoint, just be sure to check the slides for leaks. These are notorious for floor separation on the slide rooms, it's easily fixed with tape.

Also keep an eye out for water over the entry door and leaks around the awning rails (the aluminum rivets can corrode and cause the slide topper rails to pull away from the body causing leaks).

With good PM you'll easily enjoy 10+ years with that coach, my '05 has treated me very well.....

Beautiful and as mentioned the refer change is a plus. It looks like it might be a 40SKQ model?? Bathroom in hallway?

We have a 2008 Endeavor 40SKQ.

Yes slide leaks must be watched and I just attended a seminar that addresses the issue. Simple tape may prevent the problem and there are some beautiful stainless plates available to resolve any issues.

I have had ours since new so have 5GB of files on various things if you need them.

Be handy with a voltmeter and tools. Keep up the maintenance and you will love it.

IF it tends to do S turns or wander down the road there are two threads on here to address that.

We full time in ours and love it. Very comfortable and with about 300 modifications is really unique. New 4K tv's, tempurpedic bed that adjusts, residential refer, dishwasher, and things like that.

Have fun. There are some great training videos if you want to become an expert at driving and parking it.

Enjoy and welcome to the forum.
