A little more than a year and a half ago, we purchased a 1988 Beaver 36' Diesel pusher with about 50,000 miles. We have taken several moderate trips of around 1,500 miles, several lesser ones, and find it convenient for putting up guests from out of town. It now has about 56,000 miles -- the Cat turbo diesel is probably just getting broken in!

I am in the process of setting it up to tow, my 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and hope to take it to Moab in April to the Easter Jeep Safari. It is also time to take care of some maintenance. I have a water leak under pressure and a few electronic upgrades planned.

Good to be here. The information about TOADs is especially helpful.

Mel Jr...Welcome to iRV2!! We are certainly glad you have found this forum. I would also like to invite you to visit the Monaco Forum farther down the main forum page. You are certainly welcome to ask for some "karma" there too-since you are technically part of the Monaco Products Family.

We have some great Beaver owners there also who may have information they can always share with you...along with some other Monaco owners who seem to know a little bit about a lot of things...and if they don't..they will go looking around to help.

Again..welcome to iRV2 and hopefully the Monaco forum..we hope you visit & post often!

Mel Jr.: Hi from Tampa, FL. Welcome aboard iRV2. It's a great site particularly for info SPECIFIC to your rig. Wife and I fulltime and just came down through Oregon on our return from Alaska last yr., and sure do like the area. Had relatives living in Corvalis and he was a commercial fisherman with his boat out of Depot Bay. We love that town!! Oh, say,....when your down visiting Moab, don't miss Monument Valley just South of there. Beautiful country there also. Have a blast. Steve & Lynette

Mel Jr - Wherebouts in Oregon do you hail? I took residence in Gold Hill (close to Grants Pass) for about 19 months, back in 2005 - 2007. Loved it, but had to move back to Texas. Can't wait to get back to green.......

I have a small (36 acre) tree farm in the Coast Range between Corvallis and Newport just off US 20. I have a couple of private camp sites for family and friends -- if you ever get out this way again, give me a shout.
