Monaco VESTA

Bought a Vesta few months ago. Having upgraded from B+ unit much improved ride and storage space. New aerodynamic profile gives less wind resistance. Good mileage over 14mpg, and little buffeting when passed by 18 wheelers. Air ride and air brakes an added plus. Next we need a toad,plan to use air force to utilize air brakes set up. So far Max Force engine seems pretty quite, for a FRED, with good torque.

Has anyone had any trouble with bubbling on the co-pilot dash?

Do you have noticeable engine noise (FRED)? Does the engine fan make noise when it kicks on? I've seen different engine specs for the 35' and wonder if the 260hp is for early production and 300hp available for later production?

The Vesta 32 ft. with the Max Force engine is rather quite @ 60 MPH on relatively level terrain. In the mountains ( the Yellowstone trip from Ohio) when the Allison 2500 trans. drops down to lower gears the aux. fan does develop considerable noise. But generally speaking my wife and I can converse normally.

No problem so far but we keep it ( Vesta 32) facing North and keep the shades lowered.
