Monaco Coach Corp. announced today (Sept. 30) the introduction of a new diesel pusher called the Safari Panther that initially will be offered in 40-, 42- and 45-foot triple slideout floorplans, including a double-bedroom slide.
The Panther comes on Monaco’s Roadmaster semi-monocoque chassis and is powered by a 505-horsepower Caterpillar C-12 diesel engine matched with an Allison 4000 MH 6-speed transmission with electronic shifter.
In addition to creating a spacious bedroom, the double-bedroom slideout allows for easy access from the passenger side to full pass-through storage bays.
Panther models also come with full exterior body paint, a single-piece windshield, solid-surface countertops, hardwood cabinets with raised panel doors and four interior decor packages.
Suggested retail for the Panther ranges from $335,000 to $370,000. “Within its price range, nothing comes close to matching the Panther,” said Joe Zurbach, Safari’s national sales manager.
