Focusing on the ‘livability’ of its floorplan offerings — including a full-wall slideout and bath-and-a-half layouts — Monaco RV today (April 29) introduced its 2011 Diplomat Class A motorhome, available in lengths ranging from 40 to 43 feet.
“The four (new) floorplans deliver, each offering unique design
layouts offering the most space utilization,” 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 Roadmaster’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
ceramic tile throughout the living area, kitchen and bath; the kitchen
also boasts solid-surface countertops, stainless-steel sink, ceramic
tile backsplashes and, on the 42- and 43-foot models, a handy pull-out
extension with drawers. All cabinetry is of solid hardwood, available in
two wood choices.
The bath-and-a-half floorplans for the 42PAQ and 43DFT feature full
private bath beyond the bedroom, with shower, double vanity (43DFT) or
single vanity with linen storage (42PAQ), solid-surface countertops and
full rear wardrobe. Solid-surface countertops also are found on the
bedroom nightstands; the sleeping area also features raised-panel
hardwood cabinetry, day/night pleated blackout shades and 26-inch LCD TV
with optional DVD player.
The Diplomat is finished with full-body paint, highlighted by bold
graphics. Options include an exterior entertainment center, GPS
navigation system, central vacuum, auto-generator start, bedroom ceiling
fan and RV San-con holding tank flush system. MSRPs start at $304,350.
