Regarding the Swagman Australian motorhomes above, I am having a hard time switching my concept of street side and curb side.

Luke/Kathy... I feel your pain but remember, in England the Brit's drive on the other side to the road/so the Rv main entry door is set-up for the left curb side. It took me a few weeks to drive a car there, but then was able to drive from downtown London to all over England for three years with no accidents.
Brenda, thanks so much for the threads. Just my view, but this safety concern with Monaco could possibly get someone killed. You can't put folks in that kind of danger at that kind of cost and not tell 'em.
It's as bad as the cheap monroe shocks that Monaco has to know are totally junk after just 10 thousand miles/one year useage. If they don't know then something is wrong within R&D, (Kay). If they do, then cost cutting on safety will come back to haunt. Quality control and safety must have been at a lower profit than a production line.

Troy, Michigan - Fisher Coachworks LLC announced on July 22, 2008, its formal launch and plans to manufacture energy optimized lightweight hybrid vehicles using advanced materials and propulsion systems, as well as new manufacturing technologies. Fisher's launch product will be a 40' Transit Bus that is nominally half the weight and gets twice the fuel economy of current hybrid buses on the market.

info came from HERE

At least it sounds optimistic with them recalling the 225 manufacturing employees in 6-8 weeks and possibly hiring more employees in Coburg in the future.

crude oil takes a three dollar dive and monaco's stock likes oil's price direction...
as i write this MNC is up 20% for the day, that's about 47 cents per share... short term traders should note this price action.... however, monaco is not a long term "buy" but the daily price action is encouraging.... a violant price move such as todays suggests major short covering.... a typical bear market move.
