The Sig is a great coach. Hopefully the one you buy is well cared for. My Dynasty is on the same great chassis and was optioned out well by the original owner. The only thing I would like to have are the integrated awnings. I had to fix about 100 things when we bought her two years ago, but nothing major.

They require your title or insurance card to get the required decal. Dumb rule as once in there is no limit on how old.

I spent $5K on my 08 Navigator upgrading it ... original owner added $60K in options. Nothing I did had to be done...Smart 4K TVs, Silverleaf monitor, 2nd basement slide tray, 900W solar & 880 AH of AGMs, replaced stove with induction cooktop, all LED bulbs. I did put new 315 tires on the front...$1200. 2 years and 10K miles later about the only thing I’ve repaired is block the EGR and $140 re-sewing all 4 slides topper fabric.

Another happy Signature owner here. We love the Roadmaster S-series chassis and nothing but good experiences. It is so well built we are confident our 2001 has many decades left of quality service. It amazed us the features, quality of materials, quality of build and the immense documentation that Monaco put into each of their high end coaches.

Our experience has been that any of the high end Monaco/Holiday Rambler/Beaver coaches from the mid 2000s would be an excellent choice with massive value for your money. What is most critical, is finding an example that has been well cared for, properly maintained, and has records to prove so.

If we were to upgrade from our 2001 Signature, my first choice would be a 2006 or 2007 Monaco Signature or Holiday Rambler Navigator with the Detroit Diesel Series 60.

instead of dealing with those issues and what would that cost if possible at all..

Thank you for your response , greatly appreciated, Good travels to you sir

I bought an 09 coach 3 years ago that had a Cummins ISX650. I had it rebuilt ahead of taking delivery (negotiated it into the purchase price) and we have rolled down the road ever since. There is a fix and it appears to work. 24,000 miles since rebuild.

We have an 04 SIG with the Detroit engine. Absolutely love the coach. Prior coach was a '91 Beaver Marquis that we had for 19 years. The SIG now has 135,000 miles and is just getting broken in. We had one major problem, which was a broken rear trailing arm support frame.

With all 4 slides out, this coach is a real comfortable full time home for us. The Detroit has more than enough power to move us very nicely down the road. When we decide to hang up the keys, someone is sure going to get a good old coach that has a lot of miles left to go.

We bought a 2006 signature with a ISX 600 about 6 years ago. It is a beautiful coach and have had some problems but have never been stranded or nothing I canít repair of fix myself. Lots of power ,rides wonderful and lots of room when parked. If you can find one that has been maintained you will be more than satisfied Iím sure.
