Will Monaco work on my 2005 coach???

My wife abd I had a brainstorm which brought about this question. We love our coach but know that with the addition of our new baby we will need/want bunks beds in the near future. we have looked around and not found any bunkhouse versions that were as nice as our coach is,except for when we were in oreagon at marathon having work done on dads coach but we are not spending that kind of money yet. Anyway last night on eBay we found another Monaco coach that was a custom floorplan with the bunks in the forward drivers slide. That's were our euro chair and desk are which we find is a waste of space, so the question is will Monaco do after the build custom work as we would only want to do it if it comes out looking "factory". Sorry for the long post!

We just came from the Coburg service center, great guys. Call and ask them! They do a lot of different work there including collision repair. They're getting ready to do a $100K job on a nearly new '38 Dynasty Jack that went over a cliff along the Oregon coast . I would think putting in a couple of bunk beds would be a snap compared to that Dynasty!

If not, I'm sure they could recommend someone in the Eugene area that could. There is also an RV outfitter in Bend, OR that does custom work. Google "RV Outfitter Bend Oregon".

Beaverfamily....They just built a cabinet door for my 05 Diplomat. It was a perfect match. I would call and ask them.

Monaco uses real would and Sherwin Williams stain if you look for someone local. For a job the size you are talking, I think I would look for a cabinet maker that could make the beds fold up and look like a cabinet and then fold down into a bed.

You could also put a jackknife sofa in with a cabinet above. The cabinet could fold out as an upper bunk. The ladder could hidden in the cabinet doors and the doors could open out and be the supports for the bed when it's down. Just some ideas.
