Thanks in advance.
Your list of coach brands with issues were specific to certain models and years of production. The early to mid Monacos were and still are some of the best motorhomes ever built. Same goes for the Monaco cousins; HR
Tropical, Beaver etc. To sort the good from the potentially bad ( which may have been repaired already ) search the specific issues and make a list. When it comes to older coaches, maintenance and records are the most important "issue". All else can be repaired or replaced. The Knight is at the bottom of the Monaco hierarchy but is still a great coach. Like Monaco, Country Coach has many models and some were better than others. I'll let the Knight owners respond with specifics. You can also search your model specifically using the forum search engine.
