Monaco RV LLC has introduced the 2011 Monaco Cayman. The Cayman steps up to the eight air bag proprietary Roadmaster chassis, from the previous four air bag model of 2010.
The eight outboard-mounted air bag RR8R Roadmaster chassis provides a wide and stable platform for the coach, which, according to the comapny, improves drivability. A new 360-horsepower engine is standard on 40-foot models, with a 340-horsepower engine standard on 36-foot models.
Four floor plans are available, including the popular full-wall slide 36PFT. This model produces expansive interior space because no divider walls of separate slides are present to reduce useable space.
“There wasn’t a feature or creature comfort we left out of the Cayman this year,” said Mark Kealoha, national sales manager for Monaco. “After listening to many RV owners and dealers, we responded with designing the Cayman around three very important customer ‘hot buttons': king beds, stackable washer/dryer units and residential refrigerators, all options for 2011.”
Ceramic tile throughout the living area, kitchen and bath come standard in the 2011 Cayman, along with three décor choices. Other standard interior features include raised-panel cabinet doors with hidden hinges, soft-touch padded vinyl ceiling and an arched back wood booth dinette with sliding dinette top.
Optional furniture choices include leather Euro-recliners, a sofa bed or sectional. An optional hallway bunk option with two fold-down DVD players with game hookups is available.
The galley boasts a polished solid-surface countertop with mosaic tile backsplash with a convenient flip-up countertop extension that expands the workspace area. Adding to the residential feel of the kitchen are a stainless-steel sink with high-arch faucet and a 12-cubic-foot, four-door refrigerator with a hardwood raised-panel door.
Other standard features include Ultraleather six-way power pilot and copilot seats, power solar shades, an LCD three-camera rear vision system and Panaview one-piece windshields.
