2008 Dynasty with a Detroit 60 engine?

Did anyone notice the 2008 Dynasty with a Detroit 60 engine? I thought it was a mistake, but then saw the picures with the blue Detroit engine.
I didn't know they made a Dynasty with a Detroit.
The Signature and Executive brochures do not list the Detroit 60 option after 2007.

It was very rare. Our local dealership, when they were a Monaco dealer, called me trying to get me to trade in my '03 stating it was an available option but I had never seen one in person. Just out of our price range at the time and didn't want new.

Disagree. While it has that rare DD60 engine, appears to be well optioned with a nice floorplan and dinette booth, I wouldn't touch that rig with a ten foot pole. Major rust everywhere, questionable cabling in the battery compartment with cheap batteries, and some serious structural issues. Every slide out shows serious delamination in the usual Monaco areas with parts of the sidewalls literally coming apart. 5 year old Michelins with major sidewall cracking, it needs 8 new tires just to drive it off the lot. Another reason to never buy Michelin tires for an RV. And I'll bet that's just the tip of the iceberg with this coach.

Two minutes of looking at the pictures tells me that this rig has lived a hard, neglected life, sad. Bigger question is why the dealership would post such lousy pictures like this without first fixing some of these items, unless they're that major.

X2 with Snowman1 Very nice coach when new but does look like it has not been taken care of. What a shame. I have a brother in law that I was going to tell about this coach until I actually looked at it.
