I have a 2015 hc. It has never been back back to the dealer. I have only found a few minor things that I fixed myself.

I have the 305 RL and had a couple of minor things as well, never had a problem with keystone. I would say 99% of the time its the dealer that is the problem.

We had the 2006 Montana and now the 13 3402 Big Sky that transformed into the Legacy package a couple of years ago .


We disagree that the Montana is a full time RV None of these are suited to full time use no matter what the marketing says. These are RECREATIONAL vehicles.


We are long timers and about as close t o a 24/7 365 full timer as one can get.The Montana/Montana legacy have some features that make it better suited for long time use but IMO the HC would suite us just as well as these " Montana's have over the years.

I agree. I just picked up a new 3810ms legacy and I'm bummed to see that my 2005 challenger is a LOT closer in build style as this. Oh, and in response to the comment about the tv & audio being higher quality......it's complete junk. Junk. We love the 5er but it is certainly NOT a luxury full time rig

Trash Compared to what???? what other brands in Montana's price range use are Jensen and Furrion and they are SOOOOO much better?? Up untill a year or two ago they used Only Sony or Samsung I guess something had to give because now they have nicer stoves/Ranges,Stairs etc.. standard G rated tires than a year or so ago and a 2005 Challenger is close to build style???? did they have 12in frames ??Mor-ryde pin boxes?? Mor-ryde4100 susp?? Corian counter tops?? Beau-flor floors??I could go on for a while if ya think that way you should of stayed with your 2005 cheaper Challenger and saved some cash

The Challenger was 12 years old.....so it's for a comparison of build style (rampant nail gun use for one). Would you like me to take pictures of how my doors are hung, how the trim matches up, the wobbling center kitchen island when anyone over 115lbs walks by? I worked in 12 volt electronics and home theater when I was younger, Jensen is junk & im not even going to entertain a debate about that. Pin box and suspension you say, well that stuff can be bought at any time, Keysone Montana doesn't make that stuff. You want to know how many fender self-tapping screws fell out on my way home....6, and it's the same crap-shot self tapping I'll fitting fender attachment as the old Challemger. Also, after just putting new carpet in my house I've been educated on carpet quality....the carpet in my new 5er is also contractor grade or below. That nice sheet vinyl floor is nice though right?... you know, it's the same cheap sheet vinyl as my 12 yr old 5er.

Sorry Nope not buying it in my experience , I have had a 2004,2012 and my 2015 Monty and LIVED in all three the newer one is better in every way and I can also give ya pictures of mine and you can see how well mine is put together and has NEVER been back for warranty work just one shelf in the Pantry was not screwed in right and one busted dining chair and the dealer just handed me a new one off the Lot, again just my experience with 3 of them and by the way No Beauflor is not the same cheap Vinyl flooring I had in my 2004 and 2012 that Vinyl flooring ripped like paper compared to the thicker Beauflor
