Monaco list by trim level from the 2000's

I could not find a post on Monaco trim levels from the 2000's that listed the trim models in the order of "low end to high end". I'm looking to upgrade from my '98 Dynasty Duke and would like to stay with Monaco. Starting my research...



Also, at what point in the 2000's did Monaco quality start to suffer?



Thank you.

Jeff-

Monaco went bankrupt in 2009. The 2008 model year ran from September 2007 through August 2008.

Monaco made my coach in December 2007, and it appeared not to have any oddities related to the pending bankruptcy. Note: I was the third owner, and can't say what might have been fixed by the prior owners.

I suggest looking for the 2008 model year or older.

Here is an older thread I found that has the Monaco lineup and answers some of the questions on quality.

Here is one that shows what models between Monaco and HR are comparable.

Monaco declare bankruptcy in 2009 and eventually was taken over by Navistar. They continued to build coaches using up inventory but Quality started to suffer and they started putting the Maxforce engines in.

Also, at some point Monaco started to incorporate some of the pollution controls in like the Diesel Particulate Filters or EGR controls. Some of the effort was trial and error and there are some coaches the that aren't dependable. If possible try and fine a coach without these controls, probably a 2006/7. There are some slightly older that may not have the controls but you'd just have to check the specific coach.
