Not a owner yet but trying

Glad to be here. We’ve had a Outfitter Apex 8 for 10 years and a Winnie before that. Looking for a 30’-34’ Monaco pusher at the moment. Hope to be a Monaco owner soon. I’m going to hang around and see if I can learn some Monaco stuff. TIA

Having owned a 34" Monaco diesel my advice is to not limit your search to the short coaches. Most are evil handling plus command a premium price.
Best of luck!

IMO Read post #2 twice would be my advice.

Im my 5-6 years hanging out here at iRV2 I have to say that Vito is very well versed in the motor coach world and would be paying very close attention to his opinion's .....yes there are many others here also ....Vito's name is just one of many that stands out.


Happy Trails

That’s a awesome rig sir. But it’s a little over my budget.

I wouldn't go for anything less than 38' because of the handling! We chose the 40' Windsor and it has been exactly what we needed. I didn't want a tag axle. We traveled in a 36' 5th wheel for 10 years before getting the MH.

Ya, I’m taking y’alls advised and starting to look at 38-40’ rigs. Thanks for the guidance.
