Monarch SVE 30SFS

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Over the years, RVers have watched Class A motorhomes grow from one to
four slideouts, and as predicted, full-wall slides made their way into a
number of floorplans. What most probably didn’t see coming, however,
was a 30-foot gas model with a full-wall slide, and a price tag slightly
higher than $89,000.

But that’s exactly what Monaco Coach Corporation is offering with its
new Monarch SVE 30SFS. The Monarch SVE is a value-priced version of the
popular Monarch Class A lineup, incorporating popular features.

“Building similarly equipped versions in high volume saves
money, and gives our customers the options that they probably would have
chosen in the first place,” says Ryan Lee, Monaco brand manager. “Plus,
the PanaSuite full-wall floorplan has allowed us to create a large
living environment in a shorter-length motorhome. That makes it feel
open for kids or entertaining, but you can also park in a small spot in a
state campground.”

Lee also pointed out that although it is an entry-level
product, the Monarch SVE still features Monaco hallmarks such as
aluminum frame construction, steel-cage cockpit, one-piece windshield,
one-piece fiberglass roof and Smart-Structure II design, which
incorporates Monaco’s truss system for added chassis strength. “These
are the same construction details you’ll find on one of our high-end
diesel products,” he says.

Located streetside, the enormous PanaSuite wall slide houses a
sofa and two-place dinette in the living area, and two wardrobes and a
closet in the bedroom. Up front, overhead cabinets provide additional
storage, and a standard 24-inch color TV keeps occupants entertained.
The kitchen is curbside, and features a double-bowl sink, high-output
three-burner cooktop, double-door refrigerator and microwave oven with
under-mounted range hood. Options here include a standard oven and/or
convection microwave.

Toward the rear of the coach, the bath area consists of the
toilet, lav with overhead cabinet and shower in one room. Last, but not
least, the master suite features a 60 x 74-inch queen bed, dual
nightstands and a

TV shelf. Other notable standard features include an Onan
4.0-kW gas AC generator, two 6-volt house batteries, 6-gallon DSI water
heater and a holding tank rinse system. Thoughtful details, including a
water-pump switch in the service bay area and 120-volt AC receptacles in
the outside storage compartment, make RVing easier.

Monaco’s “give the people what they want” philosophy extends to
the options as well. A Standard Run Savings Package includes a rear
ladder, automatic hydraulic-leveling system, rear-vision camera system
with audio, power pilot seat, 20-inch bedroom TV, vinyl patio awning and

“With the Monarch SVE, the customer gets the same quality found
in other Monaco products at a great price,” says Lee. “When we have
that kind of product out there, it helps a new customer become part of
the Monaco family from the beginning.”
