Originally called the “Caribou Manufacturing Company”, the now titled “Monaco Coach Corporation” started business in 1968. With the energy crisis of the 1970’s, Monaco brand was able to survive by staying focused on its niche market segment of luxury RV consumers, while other manufacturers were forced to close down. According to Monaco executives, the key to their continued success has been spending time asking their customers what they think and adjusting their product to match there wants and needs.
