Our motor coach is a 2006 Monaco Signature Series Castle Plan. It was custom built by a gentleman from Rhode Island and parked at an exclusive RV Resort in Port St. Lucie Florida. It is 45′ with four slides and a 500 HP Cummins diesel engine. It only had 7,000 miles on it when we bought it. Before we took delivery, we had new tires and new batteries installed. Mike flew out to Florida to pick it up and drove it back to The Woodlands, near Houston. We parked it at Sunset Shores RV Park on Lake Conroe in Montgomery County. We spent three months getting ourselves moved in and acquainted with the giant machine. We also had some cosmetic changes made to the interior. We took the carpet out of the living room and replaced the floor with a wood laminate. We took the dishwasher out of the kitchen and replaced it with an oversized drawer where I can store my mixing bowls, Pyrex dishes, and sauce pans. We took out the glitzy bar and made a functional pantry for our groceries. We also had some custom glass panels made for the pantry doors so the view of the contents inside was muted. We changed all the televisions and installed a DirecTV cable satellite system. Mike switched out all of the cabinet hardware for me, and we replaced a fancy chandelier over the dining table with something a little more low key. After living in it for just over one year, it now has about 15,000 miles on the odometer.
