Bought our 08 Endeavor PDQ40 new in June and love it. Hopefully we are getting all the kinks worked out as this is our first long trip and we blew the radiator in San Carlos AZ.

Thumbs up Holiday Rambler Owners

I'm on my third Holiday Rambler M/H. It's a 2003 H/R vacationer 32' w/2slides powered by a Ford V10 Gasser 41,000 miles towing a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 114,000 miles. (Brake Buddy) We saw the Holiday on line in 2004 on consignment at North Trail RV, made a deal on the phone and drove our 2000 down to Ft. Meyers and bought it for a good deal. It had a few minor problems which we addressed and are still happy with it.

It rides real nice and tows just as good. After getting on this site I'm very comfortable with it cause I see very few problems with either (the H/R and Ford) on this site.

Joe from Ct.

I have an 08 Endeavor 40PDQ, bought it just over a year ago, so far so good after 11K miles.

We had a Monaco Windsor 34' DP about 10 years ago. No problems to speak of with it and we enjoyed it. We've been out of RV'ing for about 6 years. This time around we wanted to downsize and make life easier. Went for a HR 25' Augusta (no toad). Haven't had our first trip yet. We're in the Mid-Atlantic region and will go south - hopefully- soon!

We have an '04 Ambassador, 34 1/2' with two slides. We have spent a ton of money but it's about to be in the shape we like. I would love to have a larger coach but for our needs it is good. We travel about half-time and wish we could do more.

We have a 99 HR Endeavor DP. Love It! We bought it, changed the fluids and took off across the U.S.! Had a great time! Ignorance is bliss, I guess. Not a single problem. We are planning to replace the carpet the some kind of wood laminate like Pergo but that is the only thing we want to change.

We're "on" our second HR. The first was a 1985 27' Imperial Class C which we bought from a camping buddy in 1991 with 32,000 miles. In 1999 we traded it in (with 65,000 miles) for a MY2000 32' HR Vacationer (F53, no slides). The Vacationer now has 70,000+ miles. Everything still works great and we do not have an urge to upgrade.

We have an 02 Endeavor, for the past 5 summers. Drove 13000 miles round trip to Alaska last summer - no major problems, but then I really watch for any little thing to pop up. I took a full spare tire, a spare air filter, spare fuel filters, etc, and still carry them on smaller trips. Like any other vehicle you have, if you maintain it properly, and read this website, as well as rv.net, you can get a lot of help from others who have run into "bumps" with their rigs, and learn from them. RVers, I have found, are really nice and helpful folks - always willing to assist other RVers.

The folks at Monaco have also been very helpful, even now, with the transition to new owners.

Good luck, and happy travels.
