Keystone/Montana Logo Merchandise

Greetings,

I will try to make this as short as possible ...

I was researching to find Keystone and/or Montana logo apparel and products. I stumbled on a test website for the company that has the right to sell official Keystone gear but it is not up and running yet. I have absolutely no relationship with this company.

This is really funny, but their "test site" was actually so good (and all set up) it let me order two really nice Montana shirts! They were nice enough to go ahead and send the shirts even though they're not open for business yet (I paid for the shirts). I ended up emailing the folks and told them that I figured Montana owners here would likely be very happy to have logo merchandise available.

I corresponded with them a few times, and they are also interested in what we would like to see possibly added to their product line. They will have shirts, mugs, the usual stuff, but are open to other ideas. I told them I would try to collect some ideas from people here and forward them to them. If you have any suggestions, please just let me know.

I am not sure once the website is up and running if I am allowed to post it here, so if you're interested in Keystone/Montana logo merchandise just PM or email me. Once they say the website is live I will forward the information.

I will keep you all posted as I learn more!

Greg

Ron, thank you for raising the question. I definitely saw it as complementing, not competing. For example, you might wish to have a "Ford" t-shirt, and also a Mustang club t-shirt - both showing your pride in Ford ownership. In fact I for one am planning on ordering from the club here. If it is regarded as competing for Doug which I surely don't want to do, moderators please pull this post.

I previously wrote to the forum administrator and the moderator was aware as I did not want to do anything wrong and why I didn't post a website yet. I just thought they had some really neat stuff to sell.

I think Doug's proceeds go to keeping this forum running!

Doug has worked long and hard to provide us with MOC merchandise with no personal gain. I would hope the members would buy from him. If the Montana site has merchandise not available from Doug that is a different matter.

The products are officially authorized Keystone logo merchandise for Keystone and are not "owner club" logos which are sold here.

Here is an example of one I got: (It's not a 3750FL, but I still liked it)

One has the Montana logo and pictures and ours has the MOC logo. They do not directly compete. We would encourage our members to purchase both MOC and Montana apparel.

Thanks for pointing this out.

As an update, I just received another email from the folks setting up the Keystone merchandise website. In short, they are looking to be up and running in a week or so, and they would like any suggestions you may have for items to carry. If you want to just forward those ideas to me or reply to this post that would be great. Again, I do not have a horse in this race, just trying to be helpful for MOC members to see some neat new Keystone/Montana merchandise. If you want the web address when it's up and running just send me a PM or email. I told them I always like office-type logo items like pens, padfolios, etc. from companies I like.



We are in the process of selecting items that we think that Keystone RV
enthusiasts will want and enjoy while giving them a long service life
and all at fair prices. Within the next week or so we should have the
web site up and rolling and ready for you to choose apparel and
accessories for you, your family and your camping adventures.

We want you to know that we are dedicated to providing you with high
quality clothes, superior designs and graphics, and it is all put
together in North Webster Indiana at an amazing print and embroidery
shop. We take pride in the products we make and our
number one desire is that you are thrilled with your experience every
step of the way.

All of the apparel that we sell are brand name products from
manufacturers like Nike & Nike Golf, Columbia, Sport-Tek, Ogio,
Jerzees, Fruit of the Loom, Port Authority, and many others - all
built tough to last through many seasons of enjoyment.

Since we are new to supplying apparel and accessories to RV
enthusiasts, we would love to hear from you - what would you like to
see us offer in high quality, Keystone RV branded products? Some of
the ideas that we are working on are the obvious- shirts, jackets,
hats, but we are also looking into branding irons for your steaks and
chops, office chairs that are identical to the captain's seats in Class A motor homes, blankets and towels to match your RV, Corion cutting boards that will match your countertops, and premium coffee custom roasted for us.

Keystone official website also has a spot on it for Keystone apparel including t-shirts.

Take a look. The Keystone site is good quality stuff.

Hi Dennis, I don't see anything would you be able to send me the link?

I know they used to have a link on there, but I don't see it any more.

This new company is supposed to be their official site so just wondering??

Greg, I stand corrected. I do not see the apparel section on Keystonerv site. They appear to have removed it and we await the new vendor that you discuss. Tks for the heads-up.

A suggestion for them: Belt Buckles - brass and/or enamel on chrome.
