Monaco Coach Corp. is reintroducing one of the most popular Beaver brand models with the redesigned 2007 Beaver Contessa, built on Monaco’s own Roadmaster raised-rail chassis. According to Adam Gudger, Beaver national sales manager, the new Contessa outperforms its predecessor in terms of ride and handling. “The previous Contessa, a 2003 model, was built on a Magnum chassis,” he told RV Business. “While it was good in its day, it can’t compare to today’s Roadmaster.” With eight outboard mounted airbags and liftable tag axles on 42-foot models – in addition to a cushion air-glide suspension – the 2007 Contessa boasts full pass-through storage. Other Contessa refinements include: euro-styled front and rear caps, a large one-piece windshield, Sony electronics and a tile aisle way inside the coach. The 36- to 42-foot Contessa, base retailing from $264,461 in six floorplans, is powered by a standard CAT C-9 400-hp engine or an optional Cummins ISL 400.
