Whoops - just noticed you said High Country as ours is a Mountaineer.
We have a 2013 362. We love it as it has much more room than our old 2980 Monty. It pretty much reminds me of the 3400 (at least the older ones) Nice layout for TV watching and large kitchen area which wife required.

We bought a 2016 MCH352RL a few months ago and really enjoy it. Also the quality seems good and have not had any major issues.

I have a 2011 323 HC and have had no issues except the awing won't work with the wall switch but works with the remote. The remote ate batteries but I fixed that.

I might add, I really like the HCs they are about a ton lighter witch makes them easier to pull. Lighter is always better. I like the cable slides. If a cable breaks I can fix it and be back on the road in less than an hour. I have a kit to replace the cables and the ends that I carry with me. And they are plenty nice enough for this old country boy.

We love our 2015 305RL Montana High Country. Have of 5000 miles on it, got in April from RV Wholesalers. We have had very little issues with. It is at Camping World for a small list of minor warranty issues while it still has the first year warranty (I bought an extended 4 year warranty).

Thanks for all the replies. Headed over the 12th to take a look at it. Trading in the 16 Outback 302FBH as looking for more room. The 362rd looks good in the pics so hoping it is even better in person.

Just make sure the front cap is painted, it should be. If not tell them you are aware of the issues of fading. Mine was not and started to fade almost immediately after purchase. They painted it in warranty.

Some of these front caps are fading badly and some don't. The cap on my HC is in great shape including the graphics. My nephew has a Keystone trailer that is fading. They both only get the morning sun.

We have a 2014 318RE High Country and have traveled from Maine to Florida with it. We love the layout of it and tows easily.The fresh water tank had a split in it (came that way)and was replaced. The front cap did fade but was repainted under warranty. The only other minor problem was a screw fell out of the hanging light. Would we buy it agin? Absolutely, we have had lots of good times and enjoyment in it and have only had it for two seasons.

Also considering the 362RD. Anyone know the length of the rear bunks? We've got three kids that will be in that room, and wondering at which point they will outgrow those bunks.

Thanks.

Joshphillipssr,
I believe the bunk mattresses are:
28" wide x 72"
38" wide x 72" (over outside kitchen)

I have a 2018 HC 362RD and love it. Had it out last weekend on her maiden voyage and everything worked fine - no issues. Love the floor plan w/ our 2 kids, really gives them a place of their own and when they leave it is awesome for a den. Taking her out again this weekend for Memorial Day up in northern NH. If anyone has any additional questions just let me know.

Make sure the slides operate properly on battery power, without any straining or hesitation. Our 2016 HC was built with an obsolete Bal slide motor that wasn't up to the task. After 4 trips to the repair shop, the problem was discovered. Keystone/Montana were no help at all, but between the shop and Bal we finally got the problem fixed. Current problem (discovered after warranty expired) is out-of-alignment axles, which i am pretty sure were delivered that way..

We have a 2018 HC 362RD and love it. We are still working the kinks out. So far, so good.

We just toured the HC 362RD for the first time today. We loved it, but the front closet appears to be VERY shallow. Are each model years the same size? I'd buy an older used one if the closet were bigger.
