That is way cool! If I had had a rig like that I wouldn't have had to sell my Goldwing.

Very nice! I'd never seen one before. You're all "hooked up" now! Enjoy you new Monty and travels!

You appear to be well prepared and on your way to great Montana adventures. I would have my UTV and gunsafe in in there.

Hook,

Rest assured that we are well prepared. My wife and I always travel with our friends, Smith, Wesson and Kimber. They love to take long trips, short trips and they never seem to tire nor complain as long as they are fed on a regular basis

I am sure that we will see our fellow MOC's on the road. Amazing that we always noted the Montana rigs when we would be traveling and admired them from afar.

Our PDI went well yesterday, taking 2 1/2 hours. We did not find anything major, mostly cosmetic but this will give the dealer all week to tighten up the ship in prep for next Saturday's pick-up.

Now we have to plan a break-in excusion to learn the ins and outs of our new baby!

One question we have:

Has anyone used the Priority RV network/service and if so how do the prices compare to Camping World Presidents club.

One thing your going to find is that if you don't need the part or product today, checking the net can save you some dollars. Tweety's, Eastern Marine, Etrailer and many other sites will, at times, beat Camping World's prices or will carry a product you may believe is superior. I buy an amazing amount of RV stuff from Amazon. Once I use the forums to decide on what I want or need I check Amazon first (we have a "Prime" membership so shipping is free. That can be big bucks on heavy items.) and then check the others. If I need something on the road or service, I've had good luck with Camping World, haven't had occasion to try the Prime folks.

We bought our new 3700RL Monty in December 2011 and we call it our condo on wheels. Getting ready to take it out this coming Sunday for a week. In May on the road two to three months to the North East on up to Canada. We couldn't be happier after having a Winnebago Rialta the past 7 years. We loved it oo but just sold it and we are excited to have a lot more room and luxuries. Good luck in your endeavor.

Our new baby is home!!!!



She is all loaded up and ready for her maiden voyage which we are trying to set-up now.....

The funny thing is that the DW was so happy about the central vac!!!

We look forward to running into our fellow MOC members out on the road!

Funny you ask Jay & Betty, I did not know either until it was explained to me that certain dealers request from Montana certain paint options, etc.

Our dealer had this one brought in with the front nose painted the Navy blue to match the exterior decaling, etc. to make it stand out from the typical rig without going to a Big sky paint option.

Not a big deal but then they get a chance to put the words "custom" on it.....in other words "sales gimmick".

It did not affect us one way or the other since everything else on the rig was something either Montana offered standard or as on option such as the slide awnings, etc.

Our PDI went well with a few exceptions that we will need the rig brought back to the dealer for some items they had to order from Montana (new headboard to replace the stained one, new slide awning due to one with a slight tear on it it and a new lavatory sink due to scrastches in bowl).

The dealer did a really great job prepping the rig and we spent another 3 hours going thru it again on Saturday for the walk thru and final PDI.

I have to say that even with our truck we noticed a big difference towing between the Mor-Ryde hitch and suspension. The rig did not bounce nowhere near as much as our previous 5'er and there was less herky jerky. Even the DW noticed right away.

My next mission will be to add a solar system into our rig so we can be completely off the grid.

With the way Montana front compartment is laid out it will be a lot less of a hassle then the one I put in the last rig that is for sure.

We are new MOC members and one week owners of our 3750fl. We also looked for over two years before choosing Montana and we are so happy we did. I was afraid it would be too big and now can say WOW, it is awesome, pulls so nice with our Chevy 3500 diesel. We are proud owners for sure.
