'06 Beaver Monterey IV vs. '06 Monaco Windsor

Am looking at both '06 Beaver Monterey and an '06 Monaco Windsor that are similarly priced and similar miles. I realize that while they have many similarities, they are different beasts - different engines, chassis', there are no clear advantages that jump out. Any feedback greatly appreciated!

'05 Winnebago Adventurer 37B (AVAILABLE)

They are both Monacos but the Beaver probably has more bling. You would need to give us details about engines, bells and whistles for each rig to get comments/opinions. Both are solid choices for that year. Price is based on condition, records, appearance, inspections. I would bet they both have some issues that need fixing. They all do. You will not find a "perfect coach". Get the best coach for the money. Call a mobile rv tech and have it inspected. Do not take the nice salesmans or private persons word that all is well. The mobile tech will not be biased.

Thanks, Adam, for your JIT response. The Beaver has a 400 CAT engine with a Magnum chassis. The Monaco has a 400 Cummins with a Roadmaster chassis. Both have 8 airbags. Beaver has a residential refer whereas Monaco does not. Haven't driven either. Do you have any ideas on drivability comparisons? Both units are in similar cosmetic conditions. Thanks again! Check6

Check the S/N on the 400 Cummins. They had bad wrist pins between 46543077 to 46603939
