Monaco Coach Shifts Focus to Signature Resorts

If you build a multimillion dollar recreational vehicle resort, but gas costs more than $4 a gallon, will anybody show up?

Coburg-based Monaco Coach, one of the world’s top manufacturers of motor homes, is banking on it.

Monaco announced last week the formation of Signature Resorts to manage and develop the company’s RV resorts.
