Made a massive mistake today took a new Monaco out for a test drive. It had a Cummins 325 pusher Allison 6 speed box and was a twin sofa twin slide model 34ft long.

It was fantastic, so easy to drive and so much power now I feel sick as a parrot cos ****I Want One**** :cry: :cry:

Seriously what a great bit of kit I did'nt think it could be so different from mine.The one on springs with gas shocks was a much nicer ride than the one on full air which was a bit harsh but handled better on tight bends.

I'm sitting here looking at the brochures and thinking about a trip to USA with a view to importing. Has anyone on the forum done this and is it worth the effort and are the savings as much as they appear to be? If I decide to go for one and can't haggle a deal in the UK I would like to do it and tour the USA for a while before exporting home has anyone tried that if so what are the pitfalls?.

Huge moneysaving tip:

- record that HISSSSSSSSS noise onto CD, then just turn up your stereo when you park up, opne yoour windows, and play it to the adudience.

Job done!

Hi Doug
I see you have a Monaco.
You may have noticed from the threads I may be looking to upgrade and I really fancy a Monaco. What is it like to own? is the build quality as good as the sales pitch would have you believe? If I look at secondhand what problems should I be aware of. Are they worth the money?

Hope you don't mind all the questions but I would appreciate some advice.
Thanks
