Well, not exactly. Middlebury Hardwoods, http://mhpi.us/ has been the manufacturer of the doors, face frames, and other components for these rigs and then Montana assembles them into the rigs. That is the one thing that sets the Montana line apart from some other brands, that they aren't using plastic covered particle board to make the cabinets. The parts that Middlebury makes are high quality, while, yes, assembly in the rigs can be lacking.

Bob, they install the cabinet they get from a separate manufacturer. Montana used to use Middlebury Hardwoods but I don't think they are manufacturing them for Keystone/Montana anymore.
Jim, I do not recall who is doing the manufacturing but if one calls Keystone Customer Service they might be able to tell you which company made the cabinets for the 2016 units.

Maybe thatís why people arenít as happy with the cabinets now. I wasnít real impressed with them in new Montana rigs we happened to be in a few months ago with a cousin who is shopping for a new trailer.

I called the main number at Keystone they where no help at first Then I called the parts number and I found out they can not tell me the manufacturer but was found out what the wood is and stain color. That is what I needed. thank to all for their info. Now making a new door for the electric control panel.

If that is the door over the steps I suggest that you make it out of foam rubber. It will be easier on your head.

What I plan on is the take the upper door and make it shorter to cover just the upper storage area. Make a new lower door that covers the electrical control panel with a smoked Lexan insert. The hinges will be on the top of the door so it will be closed when you release it and you will be able to see the lighted switches without opening the door and hitting my head when I forget to close the door just like every one else. I will post pictures when completed. The doors are made from Hard Maple if anyone needs the info
