When you talk about motorhomes, the words luxe, high-fashion, and sophistication rarely come to mind. But that may change after you come across a Monaco . Monaco Motorhomes are built for people that need to mix a dynamic, high-performance motorhome with the finer things in life. These recreational vehicles are perfect for people that don’t want to compromise comfort and indulgence when they are on the road and for people that demand the finest in RV construction and safety.
The Monaco Coach Company started as the Caribou Manufacturing Company, a small company founded in December 1968 by Ray Mehaffey and some of his friends in Junction City, Oregon. Their target was to manufacture low-cost campers to supply the booming out of doors recreation market. In 1977, the company name was changed to Monaco after their top selling product. In the 80′s and 90′s, the company grew by big leaps when it bought certain assets and divisions of Chrysler and Harley-Davidson.
By 2005, the small company that started by making and selling $2,000-motorhomes had grown to become a company that employed more than 5,000 workers and had sales of more than $1 billion yearly. Sadly, the Monaco Coach Corporation had to file for bankruptcy in 2009. Today, the Monaco RV LLC is the property of Navistar International Corporation and is still one of the number 1 luxury motorhome brands worldwide.
Monaco Coach produces state-of-the-art motor coaches and vehicle frames. These RVs are fitted with indulgent furnishings, are made with high quality materials, and are customisable to suit the customers particular needs. The most recent version of the Dynasty, as an example, features 45-foot floor plans, with amenities that include ceramic tile flooring, full private baths, central vacuum systems, LCD Televisions, DVD players, and stainless-steel four-door fridges and dishwashers. There are three decor packages to make a choice from, including one by Ralph Lauren. As with all Monaco Coaches, the Dynasty sits on a Roadmaster chassis that’s made using advanced engineering technology. It is powered by a Cummins ISM 500-hp engine.
Meanwhile, the Monaco Coach Knight runs on a MaxxForce 10 350-horsepower engine with a 3-stage engine brake. Its interior features solid wood cabinetry, mosaic tile backsplashes, leather furniture, entertainment centers, and plush carpets. Likewise, the Diplomat, the Cayman, the Camelot, and all the other coachs produced by Monaco Coach provide five-star accommodations, allowing owners and guests to travel in comfort and style. On top of all these, the company also provides one of the finest client service and technical support facilities in the business.
