Montana Product Managers

Hello everyone, this is Jason Gill General Manager of Montana.
I wanted to reach out to provide clarity regarding the departure of Mark Krol from Keystone RV.

Mark was with the Montana team for just over 17 years. His resignation from Keystone was a surprise, but, he had what he felt was an incredible offer that he he couldn't say no too & he felt like it was time for him to do his own thing with another company.
Unfortunately, in this small manufacturing community there is relatively frequent movement from RV personnel, whether its factory workers, sales or administrative personnel.

Sam Lengerich & I wish Mark the best, as he is still a friend & gentleman.(just not too much success...)

Regarding Sam & I, we have split up duties, as we have in years past and we will work hard to not only make the best luxury fifth wheel in the industry, but also to fight in the market to defend Montana products as the cornerstone of the luxury fifth wheel market.

Thank you for your patience through this transition, we appreciate all of you and wish you a very Happy & healthy 2020!!!!

Thank you we have known Mark for most if not all of those 17 years .He is a professional in every way. We thought he would go far with Keystone/Montana apparently that was not the case. He will be a asset wherever he went.

Absolutely! Don't be a stranger. If ever there was a place where you could learn something about how your products perform in the real world and get some constructive criticism this is THE place.

We really appreciate feedback from the "powers' at Keystone and Montana..as 2 time owner and a member on a boat forum for many years, openness, concern and taking owners opinions on the product and desires for changes in the product, will pay everyone, owner and manufacturer far more dividends in the end.
Thank You and keep posting.

Jason Gill is General Manager of Montana in general most of the management does not post on a regular basis but they do read this forum on a regular basis.

Thank you for your update on Mark. I have bragged about how Mark stood up for the Montana product numerous times and am sorry to see him go. I am happy for his new opportunity as he will do well where ever that is. I think all that any of us can ask is that the new team is willing to listen and continue and build on Mark’s legacy to make Montana the very best. Thank You.

I want to thank ALL the Montana Team Does in Goshen to give us better UNITS! Since buying our '17 305 RL, I really believe the TEAM has been reading and applying where possible the thoughts/concerns posted.

Mark will do well but NOT as good as the friends he left … IMHO

Now if they'd pass on some winning lottery ##'s , we could get that 373RD we want
