Hello fellow Monaco owners. Just traded my '03 Journey for an HR 40' Endeavor PRQ. I was active in the Winnebago forum and am glad to see the Monaco forum up and running. I am presently working thru new coach warranty issues, but do like the Endeavor better than the Journey. Hope we can get more members in the forum and can give the Winne forum a run for their money. Talk to you later. Oops !! I need to change my signature block.

Hi Flyer,

Welcome aboard. We left a Winnebago Journey also. The coach was great, but the management need an overhaul.
We have a new Dynasty and what a difference! The Monaco products are worlds apart from Winnebago. Of course it cost both of more to get there, but we think it was well worth it for us. Keep us posted at to your warranty issues. It would be interesting to hear what they are and if they carry over. We heard so many positive responses from Monaco Product owners that we feel we're in good hands, hope you can feel the same.

New member today also. Kinda followed Jimmie D.
Interested in any replies for Jimmie D as I am interested in his model coach. 32 foot Monaco built. Knight,Cayman,Neptune. Prefer the Knight with the 6 speed tranny.
Jimmy D or any others --a question??
How does the angled kitchen work out with the slide in.
Would it be better to look for a coach with the booth dinette or the table and chairs.
The earlier models 2002 and befor had the non angled kitchen, with the stationary stove that the kitchen slide, slid in front of.
Any preferences as to what would be better?
Thanks and glad I found this forum.

presently

Hi! RC The kitchen works great in or out. I like the table and chairs.The 2003 has a pass through basement storage which the 2002 doesnt, which is a big thing for me cant have enough storage!!! The 2003 comes with the 300 hp ***. ant the 2002 only 260 hp. Hopes this helps you out good luck!

Jimmy,

You might want to get your coach weighed so you know what tire pressure you should maintain. Your tire pressure might be at the high side, which will make it ride hard. You'll have to sacrifice one for the other, ride for mileage, but lower tire pressure with in limits will help. One thing to remember, the Roadmaster chassis have better road handling qualities. Each chassis is made for that specific coach, it's not a one fit all situation.
