We are going, not sure which day. We go every year, since we winter in St Petersburg area.

We go every year, but are unable to join the meet-up as it is on Wednesday and we have a commitment every Wednesday.

Yup planning on going, hoping entry from the 301 will be more organized with more gates open than it was last year.

You can also take the south entrance off Dr. MLK Jr. Blvd. I don't think they would change anything from last year as this has been going on for a while.

Wife and I will probably go on Sunday. Wish we could attend the Wednesday MOC group, but our schedule just won't allow it. Looking forward to seeing what's new this year. Found our 381th floorplan at last year's show, although we didn't purchase it until later.

UPDATE......... UPDATE.. When we were at the fall rally Mark Kohl suggested as Many Moc'ers that can make it be at the Tampa RV show for a get together at the Montana Exhibit . The day would be senior day which I believe is Wednesday of the week of the show. It has been done bef ore with a very good turnout.
This is a great opportunity to meet with Keystone and Montana managers as well as seeing the new Montana models. If there is interest we will co ordinate the event."

Spoke to Marc Krol Today he will be at the Tampa Show THURSDAY JAN 18th Please gather at the Montana building display at 1PM for a group picture. The Montna reps will know we will be there Thursday and all during the week so introduce yourselves and meet the the Reps when you get there..

Went to the show today, was quite disappointed to see the changes to the Montana were not for the good. In my honest opinion the new units looked like Montana cheaped out on finish's, fit and overall quality. The High Country units looked higher end than the Montana so not sure if they did a swap of the levels or not. In any case I really thought we were walking into the older Cougars, we checked out the new Cougars and honestly they looked better... The Solitudes on the other hand stayed pretty much the same as they have been and the general overall wow factor is night and day between the new Solitude and the Montana now.. Previously they were in my view pretty much equal... Comparing the new 3790/91 to our 2015 is like night in day with fit, finish's and wow factor and you couldn't pry ours away for the new one despite the pull out storage at the back. The unit that impressed us the most was surprising the Landmark LM Phoenix, the fit, finish's and craftsmanship were superior to every other 5er we looked at. I crawled under em and all over em and this one stood out.... Pricing is more but way more bang for the buck.... Montana has made a serious error IMHO not sure WTF they were thinking... I would have to pick the HC's over the Montana if buying right now but then again I would have walked on and not bought either one likely.... Interested in what those that have the 2017 or older who have now seen the new ones have to say....

Went to the Tampa Rv show yesterday we were very disappointed in the new Montana's, The showers are smaller and the floors seemed to flex when you walked on them. Do not care for the new bath room doors at all. Our 2016 3721 seems to be a lot better built. in all we were not impressed by the new Montana's or the HC's at all.

Same here. Cheapened drastically and we were not impressed. That gray cabinetry is particulary ugly,cheap looking and sloppily installed. Far inferior to what we have had in our four Montana units. We liked the Villano the best, quality and detailed work obivious, the the Landmarks came in second, acknowledging the price point was 20-25K higher for those units. Redwoods also nice and closer to the Montana price point.
