Hello

Hi everyone

Been looking at RVs for the last year, always went back to the Montana to look again and again.

We are new to this retirement thing (7 months already. LOL),have been camping for 20 years in the same camp ground here in Ontario, we like it so much we purchased one of the 10 full time units in the park and have lived here for the last 5 years.

Got a good deal on a package consisting of:
2003 Ford-F250 7.3 diesel and a 2001 Montana 3255RlSS.
Both are in pristine condition.

Before joining this forum I read most of the posts and have already had 4 or 5 questions answered, without a post.

The only problem I have right now is there is 8 inches of snow on the ground here and we can't get away this winter so we will have to wait until summer before we even get to use the Montana.

We plan on wintering in the Arizona area as my wife has two brothers living there.

I would also like to thank everyone for the warm welcome to this forum and hope to see some of you on the road in the future.

Thanks all
Allan & Nicole Brown

Welcome again: Maybe you will consider the Rio Grande Valley for a winter. If so there are a number of us here to get to know.

Biff, your edit reminded me of something that should be mentioned about the older Montys.

The older Montana's had a problem with the frames. Montana has been making all the necessary repairs to these frames but not everyone took advantage of it. I would suggest getting your rigs VIN number and giving Keystone a call. They can tell you over the phone whether or not the repair has been completed on yours.
Contact Keystone Customer Service at (574) 535-2100.

Welcome. We have a 2000 3255RL and totally enjoy it. Look forward to hearing how the 3255 works for you. Safe travels.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the still new retirement stage. Sadly, we still have a ways to go before we can make that same claim!


By the way, summer will be here before you know it and you will be able to enjoy that Montana, but I understand how you feel. Winterizing last month after our first year of camping in ours was a sad project!

Welcome Biff, always good to see more members from Ontario. I can relate to your snow problem, that is why we left our trailer in Tennessee. That way we can drive back down there in the winter and continue southwest to the Rio Grande Valley. We have occasionally been out Grand Bend way, stayed at Pinery PP a few times. Nice country there along the shore of Lake Huron, (at least in the summer).

Welcome aboard! Just a point of reference, our first Montana was a 2001 and had the heavier frame with no problems. I'm not sure when they changed to the heavier frame so it wouldn't hurt to check just in case it was a running change during the 2001 model year.

Like you, we looked at many but kept coming back to the Montana. When we decided to trade our first Montana we went for another Montana. Just can't seem to beat them for bang for the buck in my opinion. And a great company that stands behind the product.
