My understanding is if you buy a vehicle in Arizona from a dealer you pay sales tax, from a private party no sales tax, private party may be the way to go if this is correct. I may have Arizona confused with Nevada, age is catching up to me.

I guess my mindset is thinking about a car value dropping drastically when it goes over 100k but I think those days are gone now because the cars last a lot longer these days too!

Do you think the high mileage will make a big difference when it's time to sell her?
Your ISL Cummins is barely broke in with only 70K miles. The ISL is a million mile engine. We have a 2006 Diplomat we purchased when it was a year old and had 12,000 miles. It now has 108,000 miles and runs great. Last year we did a cylinder test with the Cummins software and all the cylinders were in the mid 90 % contribution. If you like your coach and it handles and run good I would not recommend trading it for a coach that is that close to the same. Better a devil you know than one you don't.

If you have an ISL 400 then it is likely a pre DEF engine and is a keeper unless you want to deal with buying DEF and all the problems that came with the particulate filter.

The OP is concerned with resale after he goes over 100k. It's likely that most of the DP's would go well over 100k miles. The problem is most don't drive them that much. Of the 20,000 Class A's on rvtrader about 4% have over 100k. When choosing I think most would go with less miles.
I think you are right about the devil you know. There is at least one poster recently that decided to put a new motor in his 15-20 year old MH.
I think the OP should go another year while he decides what to do.

That's why we all love this forum. Everyone helps everyone, and I just want to say thank you to each responder, your info was very helpful. I think I will keep my 07 Monaco because as you all said... I know what I have! If some minor things need fixing I'll just have them fixed as we go along.

But I am having a hard time finding a qualified RV repair service. I've had a few over my house to fix some things and the result of their work was, to put it nicely... sub-standard.

So... If anyone knows of a good RV repair service in the Mesa, Phoenix area please let me know.

Again THANK YOU to all who responded!
