Monaco RV has come a long way since it first hit the roads in 1968. The line of Monaco luxury recreational vehicles has grown over the years to become a world-leading RV brand.
Monaco has always been known as a company that produces dependable, competitively-priced homes on wheels that offer customers a lifestyle that exceeds anything they ever imagined.
The company became part of Navistar in 2009. Navistar is known world wide for their products like the IC Bus, MaxxForce engines and the world famous International Truck line.
Under the control of Navistar, many of the Monaco RVs have already been redesigned with the company's ground-breaking engineering technology to elevate the quality and efficiency to the highest of standards.
Monaco encourages you find a local dealer. There are branches all over Canada and the US, as well as several branches in China, Russia, England, Germany, New Zealand and Italy.
You can search the company website for a location near you, or search the internet for local dealers.
You can also find a good selection of used Monaco models in publications such as RV Trader and Auto Trader, as well as your local classified listings. You can find all of these listings on the internet, so you don't even have to drive from dealership to dealership to begin your search.
But the internet should only be used for research to give you an idea of what's available. When you have narrowed your search down to a few RVs, you should see them in person and take them for a test drive.
Unless you are buying new, have a mechanic look at the RV you chose before closing the deal. You never know what trouble might be lurking under the hood.
That is a tough question. There are so many fabulous models to choose from, the best thing to do first is decide what you need and how much you want to spend.
The brand new 2014 models range from the super-cool and stylish Dynasty from $433,065, to the sleek yet rugged Monarch SE starting at just $95,165.
Somewhere in-between you will find the LaPlama. Starting at just $124,403, the beautiful and boldly-colored LaPalma has an interior that feels just like a real home away from home.
Used models can be found for as little as $4,000, however these are quite old and might not get you where you want to go. They could also end up costing you more in repairs than they are worth.
If you want to buy used, don't get anything more than ten years old. You can find plenty of good quality, used Monacos in this age group for about $20,000. Be sure to check out the price guides NADA for RV and the Kelly Blue Book RV.
