I have had DPs since 1997 even a Monaco Dynasty with 4 slides and 450hp.
I hated that thing and only kept it a year.


Interesting, I always considered the Dynasty to be the gold standard of
RVs. Never heard bad things about them before.
What made you hate yours?

Sorry Larry---I have never had a payment. The Dynasty had 4 slides and when they were all in it was a pain to get to the rear bath among other things and was just to big for me. I liked the 450hp Cummins and several other things about it but it was just to big. I love this 36ft Monaco, it just seems to fit my 81 year old a$$ and drives like a car, LOL.

There are to many variables and every person has different wants and needs but here is one thing that is for certain and not just an opinion. Some of the Alabama built DP's Ive looked at that other people owned had nearly zero engine access as in having a rear radiator and only a space maybe 2ft by 2ft under a panel in the closet for you to have access to the engine. Buy a side radiator coach because it can be hard enough at best to get to the engine to do the most minor of side of the road repairs ie filters belts and so on. Do yourself a favor and take heed to this. Good luck. Dub McBride

Forgot to add, its not just Alegro that can have no engine access, many others have the same "flaw". I say flaw because who ever designed such could have never used a diesel pusher imo.
