40' monaco signature 1996 and lovin it
We bought a 1996 Monaco Signature Executive a year ago and somewhat full time it. (We have a house rental when necessary.) This is my first year rving and I love the experience. I have learned an enormous amount about the systems on our monaco becuase the major components need replacing. I am finding that it can be difficult to find parts since many are obsolete. Fortunately, the 8.3 cummins is an endlessly rebuldable engine. In the last year we have done the exhaust manifold, turbo, charge air cooler, radiator, fuel shut off solenoid, cruise control and moved around the interior a bit. I've done it all myself. Saved thousands and bought the monaco for a good deal. Yes its been $10k in updating everything, but I have a solid rig for the next 20 years.
