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, Ore.-based manufacturer. The ’11 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.
