Newbie

I have been wanting to do this for a long time and have decided this is the year. I have been out looking at 5th wheels and found one I really really like but its scary thinking you might make the wrong decision. its a Keystone Montana 38ft with 4 season package so I hope it will keep me warm in the winter and cool in the hot summer. This is definitely going to be full time living for me. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum, you've definitely come to the right place. Many of us full time in Montana's and love the experience. If you tell us the year and model your considering there are sure to be folks here that have experience with that model and can give you helpful information.

Thank you for answering. I am thinking about getting a 3625re 2015. I have been researching but I get so confused and it sounds like the same thing over and over. The spec says Ill get a moving to Montana package a paramount package, and a full time living package. It offers 6 point Hydraulic Auto Leveling a mor/ryde hitch pin and 2 a/c. I guess I need to know what I need to make sure I need to get. I appreciate all help I can get, im gonna need it. haha.

Welcome to the forum. Since you're asking, I'll be the first to suggest the G rated tire upgrade.

Since you will be fulltiming in it, the floorplan should work for you not against you. You have to be comfortable in it, have storage needed, and feel like home to you. Six point leveling is a must for us, even when we spend six months in florida in the same site during winter months. This makes it so easy to pull into a new park, unhook and level rig with minimal effort. A good, adjustable water regulator, filters, and water softener are musts. If you pull into a park and the water has a lot of iron in it and smells...the filters and softener will strip this out before it gets into the piping of the rig and you can drink the result without fear. Best sewer hoses you can buy, others will pin hole out quickly. Just some thoughts for you. John

I always advise folks when they are searching for their perfect floorplan to spend an hour or so walking around in it and "Play House"! Pretend you are cooking and doing daily chores, getting dressed or using the bathroom or whatever. See how the traffic flow pattern is when both of you are moving around and trying to do normal things. Kind of lets you know how it is going to be after you are in it together!

Good Luck on your hunt and hope you find the one that's perfect for you!

When you are looking, make a video of the entire Rv. That helps you remember which Rv is which. It's worse than looking at cars and remembering what is in each one. We had two requirements that had to be in ours. We had to be able to get to refrigerator and the bathroom when slides were in. I agree spend some time sitting in it. Have fun.

Welcome, Cathy, from Colorado. If you don't already have them, either get a Montana brochure or download. Then, ask your dealer for a Montana order sheet. The sheet will have all of the list prices. Then, you can review the packages and options and decide what is important to you. Also, if you don't have a one ton truck or larger, start there. Despite what salesmen will tell you, don't be tempted to fulltime in a Montana with a 3/4 ton truck. Second, make sure your first option is the G614 tires or a plan to put G614's on in the first few miles. As a full timer, the Legacy package offers a better suspension, heated floors, MCD shades in the main living area, full wood cabinets and also heated floors. Good luck.
