I posted this in the Monaco owner's forum and realized that my '89 coach qualifies for the possible resources in the "vintage" section (OK, it will officially turn 20 next month
My wife and I recently purchased an '89 Crown Royale 40'/31K GVW/Roadmaster/Cummins L10-300. I contacted Monaco regarding the towing capacity and tongue weight because it's not printed in any of the literature that I have or on the receiver and they said that it's only 5000lb. / 500lb. That seems really low for the size/chassis/motor configuration of the coach. Is this a conservative estimate or is it related to the rear axle/rear suspension?
I'm looking to use a hitch mounted dual motorcycle rack and was thinking that this was more like a class IV with 1000lb. tongue weight.
Any first hand experience or wisdom is appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
