What is the lineup of Monaco coaches? From top of the line to the bottom? Looking at a 2008 Monarch 30SFS.

Not much is happening with Monaco manufacturing since they went belly up. Navistar was suppose to have bought them, but not much news as to what they are going to do with the company.

OBTY; Monaco has been operating a a new LLC owned by Navistar since mid summer.They are currently building new coaches and offering support on pre Navistar ownership.

They are building 1 coach per week in Coburg, OR and have re-opened a repair facility there as well. The repair is now located at the plant in Coburg and not at the Diamond Hill Rd facility anymore.
Navistar did buy them and has since held two rallies to bring people up to speed
Actually, according to the VP of sales for Monaco RV during the last week of October, they are building 1 1/2 coaches a day, not a week. All you have to do Ray, is read a little bit and find out that they are doing fairly well, in this down market.

Better go back and read some more. That's Country Coach, not Monaco.

Riptide, Covina, Monarch, Diplomat, Camelot, Dynasty, Executive, Signature.

Yes, I believe you are right. However I do know that my stock is now worth less than $0.001 per share. Yea, that's right less than 1/10 of a penny per share. I know that I won't be buying any new MH from them. I might be willing to purchase a good used one a few years old for pennies on the dollar. They did build good ones a few years ago. Today, Who knows?
Yea, I know. Sour Grapes!

This was COUNTRY COACH NOT MONACO. Monaco already went through that and emerged as Monaco RV LLC. ..Dennis

Kind of a bit of irony:
Ford and Navistar split ways over the diesels built by Navistar and placed in Ford trucks....and now Navistar is building motor coaches built on and powered by Ford Motor Company.
One of those twist of fate, who da thunk?

Right now the Monarch along with it's sister product the Holiday Rambler Admiral is the highest line in the "Gas" product. They did build a Lapalma in 2008 which was higher-however no plans of this brand from the "New" Company. They also build a lower line gas called the Monaco Riptide and HR Arista. The full wall slide sold well prior to the bankrupcy and is in fairly good demand right now (building the 30SFS 33SFS and 35SFD) They are available in Ford or Workhorse Chassis. The Gas product is built in Wakarusa Indiania and they are building 2 per day at this plant as of last week.They also build a lower line gas!...........................


Note the bold type is about Ford and Workhorse gasoline chassis not diesel powered chassis.

Well that is good if they are manufacturing coaches again. I am glad for them and all the bitter Monaco owners that were so upset when Monaco would not repair their coaches under warranty. Maybe Navistar will uphold the warranty of some of them people that were left out in the cold.
I like Monaco's don't get me wrong. I almost bought a Camelot if it had not being for the rough ride, but a beautiful coach.

You mean to tell me the Monaco's are powered by the Power Stroke diesels that are on Ford trucks?

Absolutely NOT, they are powered by Cummins for the time being and are being tested with several of the Maxforce engines that are used in their OTR trucks.

Monaco website, the "new" Monaco. Too bad sour grapes is trying to bury the new with the old. How many times have airlines been in and out of bankruptcy in the last twenty years?

Since the "Old" company no longer exists there is no warranty however since Navistar bought the brands and facilities and started the new LLC they did hire back many of the parts and service support so getting parts is not a problem. Right now they have approx 850 employees back to work a far cry from the over 3000 the old compnay had a few years back but a good start. Good luck!

While the Signature may be top of the line, it seems like the Dynasty is the only one with a telescopic 5th slide, very cool in my opinion:-) Yes the new 2010 Monacos are beautiful!
