2003 Windsor DST

I am thinking of buying a 2003 Windsor DST. However, Monaco brochures say the Windsor was not available until 2004. This coach was made 3/2003. The owner has the owners manual that clearly says 2003 Windsor. Also owner says it is a 370hp Cummins ISL. That doesn't seem to match Monaco brochures. Before i buy it, I want to be certain of what this coach is so that I can determine what is standard equipment and what is optional. He claims it also has Aqua-hot. Greatly appreciate any help. Also, have had numerous DP's - but not a Monaco. Any advice on this particular year or model and anything special I should be checking for. Thanks again

I own a 2003 Windsor. They definitely made them that year. It does not have an aquahot though.

Here is a link where you can download Monaco brochures, but it only goes back to 2000. Not sure the first year the Windsor was build but I have a friend that owns a 1998 model. Unfortunately they don't show a brochure for 2003 but do for the 2002 & 2004 model years. https://www.monacocoach.com/luxury-rv-brochures?y=2004



The 2003 Windsor model year was the first one that they changed the construction style in that they went from a full steel metal cage to an aluminum. But the chassis is still an 8 bag side radiator.

Wow, that's a great find. They first made Windsor's sometime in the mid 1990's.
Both the ISL and the Aqua Hot were expensive options so this should be a well optioned coach.
Be prepared to spend both time and money bringing it back to new.
Good luck!

I concur there really was Windsors made in 03 because I have one too.
Mine is a PST, with aqua-hot, and ISL.
Make sure the aqua-hot is in good working order with no leaks.

Monaco apparently had a hiccup that year with brochures, but not to worry these are fine coaches.

I have a 2000 Monaco Dynasty and the brochure does not show a bedroom slide until 2001 and mine was built in Jan 2000. I have other options that don't shoe up un 2001 also. So I really don't think they kept up with them.

Thanks to all that replied. The 2003 Windsor was not going to work for us. Now looking for a Dynasty. Maybe 2005 - 2006 because they still have the HWH systems.

I recommend you open up your search to 2004-2007 Monaco Dynasty, Executive, Signature, Holiday Rambler Imperial or Navigator, and the Beaver Patriot or Marquis. All were built on the same assembly line and are very close. A Beaver Marquis will have the finest interior woodwork you will ever see on a coach.
