Beaver Motor Coaches, are they still manufactured?

Not that I could afford a new one, are they still being manufactured. The ones that I've seen in pictures are fantastic..

I can't even afford a nice old one. Wish I could.

Just my thoughts.

They are not.

Beaver was sold off to I believe Monaco around late 2K's.

I have one a 98 monterey Allison asp, cat 3126 and my parents have a better one a dual slide 39 Marquis with a killer side radiators c12 in it - and they are fantastic machines. Great cabinet work, everything serviceable and well put together.

They are Holiday Rambler /Country Coach level build quality rigs above most all of Monacos offerings.

You can spot deals from time to time but their used price reflects guy that know what they've got.

Heres a third party posted story..Older Beaver/Monaco, diffierence?

In the 1990s Safari bought Beaver because it was failing. Beaver was kept as a separate line with its own production facility. Then in the early 2000s Monaco bought the failing Safari along with its Beaver line. Monaco also kept the Beaver line separate from their other products until it was determined that the Beaver production facility was too antiquated and Beaver was moved to Coburg. Beaver was always known for its beautiful wood interiors and one reason (of many) Monaco bought Safari was to get that woodworking expertise. Safari, on the other hand, had beautiful sculpted carpets so that was another expertise Monaco gained by buying Safari. Both Monaco and Beaver were higher end products while Safari was slightly down the scale. By the way, Monaco bought Holiday Rambler because they wanted its patented slideout mechanism which was about the best on the market.

And now Fleetwood's parent company, Allied Specialty Vehicles, just purchased Monaco....the consolidation of motorhome manufacturers continues.
