For Sale By Original Owner
1998 Monaco Dynasty model 40 pbs, recently refurbished. Dynasty is a luxury model of Monaco Coach. The pbs means house type shower and private stool area.
The current models of the overpowered and over decorated Dynasties start at $660,000.00 Ours cost $260,000.00 in 1998. Our interior has no overdone ceiling mirrors, carved carpets etc. It is merely that of a well cared for fine home with all walnut woodwork.
There is one slide out, which is the entire 16 foot wall of the kitchen and parlor areas. The kitchen is very efficient, with a long counter top. There is a washer/dryer. Across from the sofa there is a walnut computer/printer desk. There are many large windows including one at the dining table overlooking the patio. When the coach was being built I had them install a full scale Bose Home Theater surround sound system. I doubt if any other coach can match this.
This motorhome has always been garaged in summer and in the South in winter. It has never seen a snowflake. No fading of paint. The exterior has changed very little from when new, and the same is true of the interior.
There are 2 huge full width storage areas in the basement, with a 7 foot wheeled drawer in one. Great for storing plastic bins of food, etc.
The odometer is 112,000 miles. The engine is an 8.3 L Cummins 325 hp diesel. Never once have I wished that I had a bigger engine, especially when filling the tank. And it has towed a pickup over the Rockies several times with no difficulty. At somewhere around 80 or 90 thousand miles I noticed that the shifting pattern was telling me that there was about 15% more torque than when new. This engine never has to crank when starting. It is running as soon as you turn the key.
A few years ago I replaced all the tires, the microwave, 2 faucets the toilet and the water pump. In the last year, getting ready for another trip, I replaced the electric 16 foot patio awning, replaced the entire cooling unit in the refrigerator, had the roof air conditioners cleaned out, checked and serviced, replaced the comfort control, bought a new mattress, replaced the large coach batteries, and had the coach and diesel generator serviced.
When buying a middle aged diesel motorhome, there is seldom any mechanical risk. The real risk is that the appliances are old and may soon need replacing. These have already been replaced. This coach will probably need nothing until the next engine service in about 15,000 miles.
After spending many thousands of dollars upgrading the motorhome and getting ready for some trouble free years, I had a bad fall and broke some bones. We sadly can’t travel any more. Our only wish is that it is a very nice, deserving family that gets our motorhome, and that they take good care of it.
