Absolutely ghost. If a manufacturer ever suggested I should be pulling empty, I would be gone so fast their heads would spin. This problem was enough of a concern for me that I sold my Montana last...

Look no further than the Anderson Ultimate 5th Wheel Hitch. I've been using one for 6 years and I'll NEVER go back to the 300 lbs of noisy, old school hitches! I can literally lift it with one hand!...

Slides in. Why expose the roof and rubber seals to UV damage, dirt and grime? Makes no sense.

Harsh? No. Silly? Yes. Same with computers? Cell phones? Automobiles, airplanes and boats? Consumers shouldn't have to be and can't be expected to be service technicians in ANY industry.

I bought a brand new 2018 SOB. I simply cannot believe the workmanship differences between my 2013 Montana 3400RL and my new one. Night and day. Never going back to Keystone.
