Bill,

Our sunnybrook travel trailer had some issues with wood too but it is SO darn hot in those babies in the summer

By the way, you do live CLOSE to us! We ate at Joe's today and drove down the street to look for your Camelot. Are you the one with the very nice garage for the MH in the rear of the property? very NICE set up if that's you. We definitely have to meet at Joe's for a sandwich.......

I have a six year old Beaver and I'm in Mesa AZ, no wood problems.

I suggest a tour of the MOnaco factory in Coburg OR. The Camelot, Contessa and Scepter are built in one factory (and I think also the Windsor, diplomat and Endeaver), the S chassis models are built in another factory (Executive, Navigator, Patriot Thunder, Marquis and Signature).

On my factory tour we were told that Monaco has continued the Beaver tradition of quality woodwork and cabinetry and they would be exclusively Cat powered. They said the Contessa has 400 more hours of labor than the Camelot, most of it in the cabinetry. The Marquis had another 1600 hours of labor in the cabinets.

Friends bought an 08 Camelot last summer and we did a thorough review of it and other brands and models at the the FMCA rally in Redmond. Personally I liked the Camelot floor plans the best and the Contessa cabinetry the best, difficult dilemma if I had to pick one. IMO our friend's Camelot is a lot of MH for the money with a very livable floor plan.

This is true, of course, there is also a difference between the Camelot and a Dynasty...I stand corrected.
