Dennis, I'm going to the show and will try and take some pics for you. I haven't been in a Monaco product since I sold my '05 Scepter in '06 so I really can't do any comparisons between the old and new. The new FL chassis sounds interesting. I wouldn't consider a Monaco unless they change the way they designed their windshields. I broke 5 in the 11 months I had the coach. Not one was due to leveling. They all broke driving down the road.

Thanks for the replies...as I understand it 600HP Cummins will be standard.

I read the letter from Snell where he took a '14 Dynasty and has put in excess 6k miles on it so far. He found out the cabinets would hold snacks but not allow you to put a box of Cheerios upright. He fired off some letters to the engineers. It'll be interesting to see some of the changes.

I guess I'm different, but I happen to thing the 10 bag system is outstanding in ride and handling....Dennis

Sure glad we made our last RV purchase in 2002. Have not found anything that makes me want to downgrade to a newer coach. Just returned from a 60 day 6,000 mile trip.Have a nice day.

We have not found anything we would want to downgrade to either. If we're going to go new, we might as well upgrade. I wonder how ASV will differentiate Monaco Dynasty from American Coach Heritage.

I'm not sure if the Dynasty is comparable to the Heritage, or the Eagle or the Tradition???

IMHO, Motorhomes, like cars, are better today as a result of technology and materials than they were 20 years ago. Almost infinitely. Whether or not they are *put together* with the same concern for quality and care is another question. But if you ask Bob Tiffin or some other CEO's and long-term builders in the industry which is the better machine: a quality-built coach in 1996 or a quality-built coach in 2014, I know what answer you're going to get in 90% of the cases. None of them would want to go back in a time machine except for the nostalgia. The test for the new Dynasty will be how much commitment they put into after-the-sale service and how fast (or slow) they spit them off the line. The fact that they're taking 9 months on order suggests roughly the same approach as Entegra, which isn't a bad thing. That they sent the survey out to owners, and took anything that was mentioned in 70% of the cases and incorporated it, is also a good thing. But, we'll have to wait and see...

I'm just glad that Monaco was saved so our coach is not an orphan. Yes, it has new adopted parents and I'm glad that they kept the 'Dynasty' name. When it's time to sell ours, people will know the 'Dynasty' is still being made.

I had to deal with Navistar on couple of occasions with their tech support, they were excellent. I would think ASV would have equal tech support.

X2- ASV having purchased it shows the brand still has power worth saving. I wonder what happens with Holiday Rambler- are they still making them, and if so, who owns them now?
