A bit late but a classic Monaco on eBay

Ending soon and will be a bargain for someone

1984 Monaco Regent 35' restored Vintage Motorhome: eBay Motors (item 230510531248 end time Aug-16-10 18:00:00 PDT)

The quality of these older RVs is far superior to the more modern ones.

Looking at the drivers side, there is delamination.

Extensive delamination.
But it is interesting - I'll bet he was looking to get a lot more for all that's in it.

LOL, no, there's no delamination because Carabou never used laminated panels - they were unstressed panels that were hung from the steel frame. There is a big section in the original handbooks that explained why they chose not to use the 'new' (in 1984) laminated construction methods.

Laminated sides would have given the coach much smoother appearance but then it would have the problems of delamination common to other marques of the period.

Well then the seller should have explained that. It looks like Delam to me and it would have prevented me from bidding. That it's not is something a seller needs to address.

In any event, significant distortion of the outer skin may well reveal an unseen issue in the underlying framing structure - water damage, etc...

You should never buy any vehicle unless you have it inspected by a professional or know what to look for.
