That's probably because Monaco is the mother-ship for not only Monaco but Beaver, Holiday Rambler and Safari.

Many of those older coaches are similar in assembly and operation.

Holiday Rambler is the only one left but their Flagship high end model called Navigator is now an entry level coach.

Monaco Will Never Be A Beaver! I not saying that Monaco is not a Quality Coach but its Not a Beaver. I don't understand How they went out of business?

There is the Beaver Ambassador Club which has a good forum and pretty knowledgeable info base. It only deals with the Beaver brand. You do have to pay to join and also be a member the FMCA to be able to post to the forum.

Beaver Coach forum??????

Early in 2016 the Beaver brand name was purchased from REV Group by the owner of Beaver Coach Sales and Service in Bend, OR. Their plan is to hopefully start production in 2018.

Actually Beaver was first bought by Safari and then in the early 2000's Monaco bought Safari/Beaver. I believe that Beaver as well as Safari production moved to Monaco's Coburg, OR plant in '05 where they went down the same line as Monaco & Holiday Rambler.

Correct

IMO there hasn't been a "REAL Beaver motor home" manufactured since 1994... (when Beaver Coaches Inc. was acquired by Safari Motor Coaches Inc.).

That makes every 1995 - 2000 Beaver motor home a SAFARI motor home ...with a BEAVER "name tag" and "title".

And, (because Safari Motor Coaches Inc. was acquired by Monaco in 2000)...any 2001 and newer BEAVER motor home is actually a MONACO motor home...with a BEAVER "name tag" and "title".

Regardless of whether BCS is ever able to restart production of Beavers, the parts people there are the most knowledgeable in the country with respect to parts availability for all Beaver coaches going back to the Safari-Beavers and even the original ones with Gillig chassis. That's who I call when I need an oddball part.

All I know is the late-model Beaver Marquis has some of the most beautiful interiors and cabinetry of any coach I've ever seen, including Newell and Foretravel. I saw one with an island bed layout that was everything we'd want and then some.

As has been said, Beaver is included in the Monaco forum. The BAC forum is fairly informational, but, it is highly censored by the admin. If anything gets posted bad mouthing a supplier etc, it is removed quicker than it was posted. I was a member, but let it lapse.....

And true, 1994 was the last year of the real Beaver. Mine was produced in Mar 1994 and Safari took over Beaver in May/June 1994
