Fantastically Modified – NOT your 'normal' Knight – $110,000 USD – Negotiable

Reason for Selling:
Moved into condo from large property where the Monaco was easily stored. It's now kept indoors in a climate-controlled storage facility.

Issues:
Nothing major: Everything is mechanically and electrically sound. No airbag leaks.

Repairs / Improvements / Modifications:
1. Monaco-Watts chassis stability system installed front and rear by none-other than Mike Hughes in 2021. If you are familiar, you know this is huge! Makes for a far more stable ride – important for motorhomes of this length with only two axles. Driving back from where the system was installed, I found myself driving 10 mph faster than driving down there – without even realizing it. Whizzed past semi-rigs where before it was harrowing.
2. Safe-T-Steer steering stabilizer installed in 2022. Could be a life-saver in the event of a front tire blow out.
3. Bulletproof EGR cooler installed @ 13,300 miles. (Another big deal!) Along with the Kleenoil and hydrogen systems, results in cleaner burning diesel and should remove all the expensive headaches associated with the original Navistar MaxxForce 10 engine. This improved engine should be trouble-free for you.
4. Kleenoil oil filtration system professionally installed.
5. Dry Cell Hydrogen HHO system installed – 10.49 mpg @ 65 mph level road w/no TOAD, full fuel & water. 8.53 mpg @ 70 mph. (From gallons burned between fill-ups – not merely using the built-in mpg gauge).
6. New LG residential frig, linear compressor motor – uses far less amps than most refrigerators and runs silently! Great for dry camping.
7. Four Lifeline GPL-6CT 6-Volt AGM batteries.
8. Renology 500A Battery Monitor with Shunt – see an accurate gauge of house battery power remaining.
9. Koni shocks
10. Wall slide-out removed and rebuilt in 2021 by Elite RV in Oregon to address the original crappy engineering of that big slide by the then-crappy Monaco company. They are great technicians.
11. New rear airbags installed (although turns out it was unnecessary – issue was air leak that was fixed).
12. New dinette slide-out motor installed (by myself). It was exposed to road debris with the original design and failed early. I made sure that would never happen again.
13. Bright white Slide-out shades installed May 2022. (I don't understand why companies use dark ones, which get incredibly hot and pass that heat into the windows and sides.)
14. Twelve gallons bright white Ziollo liquid silicone RV roof sealant applied May 2022. (Along with the white slide-out shades, result is about 15 degrees F. cooler interior temps in hot summer sun with no AC running). Also makes for a sound dampener.
15. Roof is pre-wired for Solar panels, no need to penetrate roof except for attaching solar panels.
16. Both roof ACs replaced new in 2022 – better design and lower amperage than originals.
17. Intake plenums below both roof ACs modified to move air faster with far less drag on the air flow thru the system. Result is ceiling AC vents really move some chilly air.
18. Both roof ACs have Soft Start RV units installed! (Easily run one roof AC on just a 15-amp circuit in addition to making the ACs last much longer.)
19. TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System).
20. Improved rearview camera system installed.
21. Expertly modified the original King size MBR bed frame to accommodate a Queen mattress. We love the smaller footprint, making the bedroom space so much more comfortable to walk around.
22. New quality Queen bed mattress. We liked it so much we bought one for our house too.
23. New Samsung 48" OLED TV mounted on a swing arm swivel mount. (It replaced the old-school original LED TV. It has a built-in soundbar that is so clear and loud there's no need to buy a separate sound bar. The swivel mount makes for great viewing from the sofa or dinette or captain's seats.
24. The pull-out sleeper in the sofa is quite comfortable – it's a combo air bed with foam.
25. Toyo tires June 30, 2021 by Les Schwab.
26. Replaced the bearing slides on several kitchen drawers and fixed many other small issues so that everything works great in that department.

All in all, the rig is as improved as is possible mechanically, electrically, and insulation-wise (with the exception of not having lithium batteries and solar – which would make the price much higher). Regardless, the most important thing is it's a reliable, stable, powerful, motorhome for its size that gets great mileage – especially for a diesel pusher! Also, 36' is the limit for many State and National Parks; you'll be able to actually camp instead of park in long parallel rows, side-by-side – like the longer rigs are often forced to do at fewer parks.
