Keystone (Thor Industries) Raptor trailers


image

More Thor Industries product, this time Passports from Keystone


image

Forest River RV Surveyor trailers


image

Holiday Rambler (Monaco) fifth wheels


image

Fifth wheels forever...


image

When customers trade in a fifth wheel for a motorized unit, they often include their truck in the trade. Unfazed, Lazy Days simply sells the trucks through to new fifth wheel buyers


image

Class C coach collection


image

Here a cadre of Class C coaches appears to be having their daily pep-rally


image

The Dolphin line is one of many orphaned by the National RV bankruptcy last year. It looks unlikely that any of these brands are going to be picked up by other industry players


image

A mixed bag of Winnebago Class A coaches. Great low and mid range family coaches


image

Entry level Fleetwood gas powered coaches


image

Fleetwood Bounder - entry level diesel pushers


image

Low end Monaco offering, the Cayman


image

A medley of Cheetahs, Simbas and other entry range coaches


image

A boat load of Fleetwood Mid range Class A offerings


image

Never seen such good looking Diplomat rear ends


image

Holiday Rambler Endeavors lined up for the day


image

Tiffin offerings include the Phaeton, the Allegro Bus and the Zephyr


image

Buy me! Buy me! A flight of Fleetwood Revolutions


image

Four Winds (Thor Industries) Fun Mover complete with toy garage and buit-in ramp plus, for race fans, a handy roof-top observation and adult beverage deck


image

The high line American Coach aisle


image

Fleetwood American Tradition. Entry coach to the American line which is possibly the oldest coach line in the US having started in 1925


image

American Eagle, their mid-range high line coach. Notice the so-called full length slide on the driver side. Tried and withdrawn by other manufacturers, the jury is still out on this one


image

American Eagle with slides retracted


image

American coach


image

The Heritage is the top of the American range. 2007 models retail at $700,000 to $750,000


image

Painted windows, invisible from inside the coach, is possibly another soon-to-be-copied trend


image

This low end, high line Monaco offering, is the Camelot. Four slides are now practically standard on all Class A vehicles from most manufacturers


image

Monaco Dynasty. The Dynasty is now built on the same chassis as the Signature and the Executive in a continuing rationalization effort


image

The Monaco Executive is currently almost a distinction without a difference. Between the Dynasty and the Signature it has become difficult to distinguish the price points


image

Top of the Monaco line is the Signature. Woodwork, fabrics, fittings, window treatments and overall decor are all suitably tweaked to provide a stand-out aura


image

Holiday Rambler Scepter - another Monaco product built in the same Oregon plant as the Camelot. Both brands are coming together to benefit from economies of scale both at the design and manufacturing stages


image

Holiday Rambler Imperial - nowadays another Coburg, Oregon product becoming increasingly similar to its Monaco equivalents


image

Holiday Rambler Navigator. Top of the line Holiday Rambler now produced in the Monaco plant in Oregon and sharing numerous components and technology with the Monaco products


image

Beaver Contessa. Another brand from the Monaco stable, this one the entry level high line for the Beaver


image

A sharp looking Beaver Contessa. Priced between the Camelot and the Dynasty in the Monaco range, this coach should appeal to Beaver aficionados


image

Curbside of the same coach


image

Middle of the road Beaver, the Patriot Thunder, is close to the Monaco Executive price point and, in line with company efforts, containd many common components


image

Top of the line Beaver Marquis. A Monaco brand now produced in the Monaco Coburg, Oregon plant after being moved from Bend Oregon. Many common parts with other Monaco brands


image

A full slide Beaver Marquis. This floorplanl has been deleted from the current line up.


image

Contry Coach Inspire, only one coach below this, the Tribute, is offered by this manufacturer.


image

Country Coach Allure. Third up from the bottom of this company's range


image

The Intrigue, by Country Coach, is one notch above the Allure. Country Coach products are made in Junction City, Oregon


image

Next up the range from the Intrigue is the Magna. There are three other coaches above this, the Affinity, the Rhapsody and a Prevost conversion. The Magna is currently priced in the mid $800,000s


image

The Zephyr is the top of the line Tiffin coach and provides excellent value for money. Notice that most coach manufacturers now include a front extending generator and a driver side electrical distribution cabinet


image

Curbside view of the Tiffin Zephyr top of the line coach. Lots of bang for the buck although the chassis has yet to attain the folklore status of Monaco's Roadmaster or Country Coach's Dynomax

Awnings keep on getting bigger
