Picked up my Montana 3711FL

Here are my cat scales weights.

Truck not hooked to 5er
Steer Axles 4740
Rear Axles 3480
GVWR 11500
Payload 3744
RAWR 7000

Cat Sales
Steering Axles 4880
Rear Axles 6460
Trailer Axles 10980
Total 22320

Stats
Camper Weights 14,100
Truck with 5er hitched 11340
Pin Weight 3120
Pin Percentage 22.1

5er Dry weights
Pin Dry 2790
Total Dry 13200

Loaded for a weekend trip. The front living room and front storage was loaded with every thing in it that we would take camping. The bedroom and the food pantry including the fridge are aft of the front axles so those shouldn't increase pin weights by adding weight.

Wouldn't it be nice if we the above listed for all the Montana models so some looking to by would have a reference.

Congrats on the 3711, nice rig. We got to see one at our local smaller dealer show three days ago and about the only thing we weren't too keen on was the pivoting bath door and how much it moved into the room somewhat constraining access.

This looks like it will be an extremely popular new floor plan judging by the reaction of people at the show and it sold in the very first day as well, ENJOY!!!

I'm still neutral on the door but what I do like is you can get pass the door from the either direction. Our last 5er if you were going toward the front and opened the bathroom door you had to back down the steps to get the door open far enough to get by it and into the bathroom. We have only spent one night in it so far so we see how like after few nights.

I certainly hear you! On some of the later 2015/16 models one had to go into the bedroom to get by the door. If it was you company staying over they had to open your bedroom door to get by the bath door enough to enter the bathroom all the while you were perhaps sleeping?

As I said in another thread we also saw a Grand Design model sitting next to the 3711 and it had a nice pocket door for the bath and we both like that design over all else we have seen.
