2005 Monaco Cayman

Looking at the above motorhome. Is there any things to look for on this model of motorhome. It's approximately 38 feet with 3 slides. Thanks for any advice

There was a recall on the trailing arms, so make sure they have been replaced, its a major safety issue. Overall its a good coach especially if the Source Engineering ride enhancement kit has been installed and you don't live in California with the rough roads.

Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to tell if this has been done if records are not available?

From your description it looks like a 36 PRT. As you have been advised, this RR4R 4 bag chassis is the problem child for old Monaco (MCC) as they were not sold after the bankruptcy. Monaco 8 bag Roadmaster chassis is among the finest save for the ultra expensive--might want to concentrate on one of them? The coach would have to be in awfully good condition and at a great price for me. Unless the Source trailing arms have already been installed and the ride enhancement kit, too, I would look elsewhere as the awful porpoising ride will have done some damage. Good Luck!

We have the 38' 2 slide Cayman and couldn't be happier with it. We have never experienced the ride issues some people talk about. Ours rides almost as good as my father-in-law's Allegro Bus and we don't have the ride enhancement kit. We've had it 2 years and have put over 20,000 miles on it. As far as I'm concerned, these are great coaches and are a steal because too many people that have never been in one keep perpetuating bad publicity. Fix the trailing arms and be glad you paid a lot less for the final product.
