Founded by Ray Mehaffey in 1968, Monaco began as the Caribou Manufacturing Company in Junction City, Oregon. In 1971, the company produced the "Monaco" -- a mini-motorhome with luxury features, which became a best-seller. In 1974 Eugene Oregon mayor Brian Obie bought the company and changed its name to Monaco Motor Home Inc, focusing solely on the production of motorhomes. In 1977, the company was renamed Monaco Coach Corporation. In 1987, Monaco was sold to Warrick Industries and has remained one of the nation's premiere manufacturers of high-end diesel motorcoaches.
