Ordered a 3561 a month or so ago, comes off the line late July. We ordered everything except paint, I can have a lot of cleaning and waxing done for $10,000.00. Couldn't find anyone that stocked anything other than the base models.
Wow great info on the surge protection.

Duratain coating sounds to me like surface protection not paint check it out and make sure. I opted for no dealer add on's such as sealers, tire insurance, extended warranties and so on, I found through this forum I can get better for less on the open market.

I have a 2019 3931FB. Where is the transfer switch located? I’m thinking of purchasing a generator. Would this allow me to buy a generator w/o an inverter?

I would buy the legacy package again I don't have the disk brakes but still think it was worth it.

Rear end cap always cracks me up. I rarely ever look at the back of a camper. The disc brakes are the most important part in my view.

While I would take disc brakes over the rear cap any day, I think the flat back cheapens the look of the Montana. Looks like they spent a lot of time and money getting the look just right and then when they got to the back the bean counters said "that's it" throw a sheet of plywood on the rear and call it good! For the price of these trailers the cap should be standard, just like it used to be.

That is not what they did. They dropped the name of another unit in the Montana line and called it "Montana" and what was the montana became the legacy package. Folks wanted the Montana name but did not what to pay the Montana price so they gave them a name.It happened a few years ago as we saw the change at the fall rally and commented that we got a upgrade to the legacy free of charge. There was nothing wrong with the previous named unit but the Montana name sold better.

It was the mountaineer that got the name change to Montana. The name just did not sell.They did nothing but change the name to Montana and create the Montana legacy .Good marketring.

Outside my issues with the power reel I'd still get the Legacy package (sans paint), especially now that it comes with disc brakes. Honestly, I didn't even know about the power reel until I got my unit. When I opted for the legacy package I was only looking to ensure I got the rear cap and the In-Command system (I like my tech toys). I just never liked the "blah" look of the regular rear panels and the rear end of the Cougar 5th wheel we had before always looked warped. The thicker rear cap doesn't warp, at least not yet anyway.
