Focusing on the â€˜livabilityâ€™ of its floorplan offerings â€” including a full-wall slideout and bath-and-a-half layouts â€” Monaco RV today (April 29) introduced its 2011 Diplomat Class A motorhome, available in lengths ranging from 40 to 43 feet.
â€œThe four (new) floorplans deliver, each offering unique design
layouts offering the most space utilization,â€ said Mike Snell, senior
vice president of sales and product development for the Coburg,
The 2011 Diplomat will be offered in three lengths: a 40-foot coach built on the Roadmaster
RR8R chassis, and 42- and 43-foot models utilizing Roadmasterâ€™s RR10R
tax-axle chassis. All units are powered by a 425-hp Cummins ISL diesel.
The interior of the Diplomat is available in three decor choices, with
