(PS... to the OP, your CC is a beautiful find and you should be super happy. I am not sure i will ever upgrade) Paid 10 cents on the dollar for mine (based on original sell price in 1991) ... and i take very good care and maintain beaver!

This era of coach (1987 through 1995) by Beaver and Country Coach were VERY similar in quality craftmanship and high end components. 100% were build on GILLIG bus chassis and for the most part... many are still on the road today.


I wonder if your coach sits on a GILLIG chassis or not... it looks like it does... would have been one of the LAST CC made that did if it does.

(PSS... that swanky rear bedroom is crazy!)

1994 was the END of GILLIG / BEAVER relationship.

Wow,that is a very nice rig and you should be crazy about it!
The answer is yes my rig sits on a gillig under carriage and I just love it!
This is my first RV other than a pop up tent trailor I pull with my goldwing and my 1974 cave man camper and it is a nicer rig than I ever thought I would have. I will likely never sell it, I can't imagine being able to afford anything any nicer. I have the original invoice and it sold in 95 for $486,000.00 I would never buy something that would lose that kind of value but,I am really glad someone did! What engine dose yours have?

I love old CC's ...! My original invoice in 1991 was $310,000. It is very VERY doubtful (coach is paid in full) that i will ever sink $$ into a newer or different rig as i think my life with this old beaver and my family is fine enough! My Beaver came with the 1st (...for 1991) all electronic 10.2 liter CAT 3176 (inline 6) turbo 325 HP (1,225 foot pounds of torque) mated to one of the last of the Allison 4 speed transmission. Check out this crazy brochure its awesome!!...: 1991 Beaver Marquis 40' Brochure.pdf

I put all new struts on the bay doors, replaced the awnings, rebuilt dash AC (huge expense) cause i love to run that sometimes instead of house AC..... put on all new Koni HD shocks (6) this year.... (new Toyo 16 ply tires too)

You have a great Chassis on that bus man i hope your in love. My family has a great time with our funky retro coach and get lots of compliments everywhere we go!

I think next thing we need to look at doing is new roof and interior remodel :O

That broshure is pretty cool I should look for one on mine. I am just getting acquainted with my rig, I have a bad circuit board that I just ordered . It dose the power checks like polaritie,ground or shorts. I don't know what caused it to go bad but I hope it doesn't damage the new one. It still had the original circuit board.

I almost forgot to menchin the previous owner installed a slide out in the living room, he did a very nice job it looks factory. I was really lucky cause my wife's only request on what ever I bought was that it had a pop out . I really wanted a diesel pusher and a newer one was not a option and I like to buy older things that were top of the line in there day. By the time one was in my price range it was pre pop outs so I really lucked out!

Love my 1996 Monaco Signature,,,,

wow! slide out? 1995?! man you got to show some pics of your interior and control stuff. Make sure you have a slide topper awning to protect. Post some pics of that would love to see... ... I look at two pics and its difficult to see slide out. How did they power it..... electric or hydraulic?

amazed at some after production mods some people did!
