I can raise both rigs below and move slowly with them up 4-5”. Your gravel pad will be fine as it’s all about PSI...pounds/square inch. The back tires on the Sig will be less than 100 psi...about the same as your current rig.
This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.

Thanks, Ivylog! That's just what I needed to know and the gravel/weight thing as well!

Most DP's when at ride height have approx. 3" between top of front tire and fender skirt/body panel.
When at ride height my MH(see below) has approx. 12" between body and ground at center of coach.

A 2003 Monaco Signature will have an HWH air ride system with auto leveling. It has 10 air bags and 10 shocks mounted out board on the chassis. The control pad for the HWH system is on the drivers left side console and you can easily reach down and raise the chassis 4-6".
You can also raise the tag axle if necessary, (but this puts more weight on the rear drive axle). I usually raise the tag when backing into a tight spot.

I think you'll find that this coach will go into almost any tough spot or slope better than almost any other big diesel coach.

I hope you are prepared to work on this thing! There are lots of great systems on these coaches but at this point they need some TLC.
Best of luck!
