New To A Class A

We bought a 2000 Monaco Dynasty about a month ago. It was a private sale and we bought well below market. The PO had to take back a personal loan from the bank for the difference between what we paid and what he owed.

The coach needed some work, but nothing too critical. We replaced all the tires (ouch), had the roof resealed, had a leak in the grey water drain from the sink where it flexed around the slideout.

Before we had (actually still have) a p/u camper, which just got a little too small after two weeks on the road.

We had to step up to a Diesel pusher with a 10,000 pound hitch as we tow a fairly extreme off-road Jeep on a flatbed trailer.

Right now the rig is in Lacey, Washington having 5 of the double-paned windows replaced because they had water intrusion.

From a P/U Camper to a Class A - you'll be spoiled the 1st trip. I kept my 10 year old pop-up for a year after I got the 'A', but never used it again.
Welcome - the 1st year will be quite educational and IRV2 sure helped me.

Congratulations on the new rig! I'm sure it'll be a big difference you will truly enjoy especially with your Jeep. You may want to peek at the "Manufacturers" forum for Monaco as well as the "Chassis" forum for whatever chassis your rig has.
There are lots of helpful folks on this site with tons of experience. We've been helped a great deal!
Again, good luck and safe travels!
