I did a fair bit of research before plumping for the 2000 monaco 2.0. Must say glad I did. Drives well, and I'm finding it a lot more economical than expected, getting 30 + mpg around town, not bad for a big lump.
As mentioned, check all electrics, sunroofs for signs of leaks, rear seats remove ok, FSH, cam belt at 70k. Take for a test drive.
I saw a few and was a bit picky in terms of little scratches, seats etc. But it paid off, I saw one on e bay and messaged the owner, the sale ended with no bids, but he phoned and I picked it up for the reserve price, bargain as well.
