One of the more unusual new models introduced by Monaco Coach Corp. in its 2007 line is Holiday Rambler’s Black Diamond sport utility recreational vehicle (SURV). Featuring a tapered design, V-nose front and NASCAR-inspired graphics, the Black Diamond sports aluminum-framed, laminated roof and sidewalls. According to Monaco, “aluminum-framed, laminated fiberglass construction combined with a functional V-nose creates a toy hauler engineered for today’s popular tow vehicles.” With a GVWR of 11,002 pounds and a net carrying capacity of 5,160 pounds (weights based on 230FK model), the Holiday Rambler Black Diamond retails from $26,585 and is available in three 26- to 30-foot floorplans.
