We belong to a camping/riding group and have taken our class C to Glamis and know lots of people who have taken their 40' DP's there.

The group has also gone to Ocotillo Wells, Superstition, Truckhaven, Johnson Valley, Spangler, Cuddeback, Red Cloud, Rainbow Canyon, California City, Dove Springs, etc.

The only place I would not recommend Pismo, but only because I don't like the aspect of having to worry about rust from the water/air there.

consumer tip of the day from been there done that. Carry some extra boards like 2 x 12 x 16" and a small shovel and the best tip ; dont forget the hyd jacks as you can use them to lift the mh when your digging out!

Not all DP's are built better...most manufacturers use the same style of construction between DP's and gassers..the ride is better, but they can still be unruly and more expensive to repair.... the mileage is MARGINALLY better at best.. if you travel 10k miles a year, the difference in cost between a gasser and a DP will pay for itsself... eventually..last longer ? They ce3rtainly do... but you'll never keep it long enough to find out...beter quality ? Again, the style of construction is generally the same, only difference is the cabinets and "gingerbread" inside...

You will be much happier with the HR. I had a 2000. It is built better. Check on one thing. Some Monaco's had a issue with trailing arms. They have to be replaced. Other than that you should love the coach. Ask them if they will let you try it for a week.
