Met someone at a Flying J that had the gooseneck. He was a farmer and it served a dual purpose with the farm equip. He said it worked great. Might not be much help but that's all I have got to offer.

Welcome aboard, Donna and Frank! Good to hear from you. I hope you enjoy that 3295RK as much as we do ours. Did you get the early or late '03? The early '03, like ours, has two steps from downstairs to bath area and another step from bath to bed area. The late '03 has a number of improvements suggested in this forum and can be identified by having three steps from living to bath area and a flat floor between bath and bed areas. In any case, they're both terrific and we hope you get many years of enjoyment from it.

Welcome aboard! Hope you find info about the gooseneck. I am totally ignorant about the differences between truck bed connections. Heck, I thought they were all "goosenecks". Duh... Happy trails

Purchased used truck with gooseneck already installed by previous owner to pull horse trailer. Salesperson where we purchased our 3295RK told us we could obtain an adapter that allowed towing using ball already installed for gooseneck. I opted to go with 5th wheel. He assured us that the gooseneck worked quite well. Just felt better about going with 5th wheel. Happy trails..

Hello, My husband and I and our 7 year old purchased a 2004 3670RL last December. We pull it with my wifd's F350 diesal four door and have a gooseneck. When we started to have a lot of problems, such as axle, slideout hydraulic and pump, brakes, and more my wife joined and started researching our problems which have been extensive. The only remaining problem is the slideouts sliding out during travels. A third visit to the dealer hopefully will fix the problem. We have put around 13000 miles on our unit this past year as we work as a femily out of it on weekends. We inspect and repair docklevelers, commercial rollup doors, compactors and balers for two major chains in IL, MO, AK, KY, TN, OH, IN, TN and some in MS. We liked the floor plan which gives pleanty of room for a little boy to sword fight and have a train track or just bounce around. We are in our late 40's and have 5 other children all grown and married off thank goodness. The remaining one is spoiled needless to say. We have pulled our unit all through Chicago, which has 35 stores of one chain, and many of the other, with many a wondereous look, and other cities such as Memphis, Columbus, Toledo, and our favorite Nashville not to mention many others. If a semi can make it to the loading dock so can we. It is wonderful to work as a family and we see so much. We see a lot of Monatnas. We love our gooseneck and have had no problems with it. The truck is my wife's and she likes the full use of the back bed. I have a 24/7 repair service that takes my time when we are not on the road in the Montana. Repairing Big Trucks on the road, forklifts and farm equipment, and repairing semi's red tagged at the DOT scales. This line of work keeps me very busy. My wife pulls the unit as well as myself although she has not the experience to backin but is learning. We see a lot of your out there. We hope that Montana addresses the problems it has and uses better material providers so the quality will improve in some areas.
