We don't like the dinette. You can only get in on the side opposite of the fridge as there is not enough room to go between the fridge and table.

As mentioned above, don't order that model until you actually get in one and try it out.

cool idea bad execution,like was said before the dinette,not much counter space,not much of a pantry and small front basement storage ,when you make the kitchen a focal point of the Rv you got to do better than that IMO but we do love the front windowbut that is why we love our 3735MK my wife LOVES to cook Huge kitchen and counter space and big pantry,my wife loves ours too bad Montana stopped making it

Here's a previous post of mine on this model. Once you get past all the eye candy and really look at functionality, you'll see Keystone didn't think this one out very well.

Agreed that the model lacks some clear thinking. We looked at one at the recent PDX show. Loved the kitchen and the window, but hated the lack of space to slide between the fridge and the table. Also, seats were very uncomfortable, especially for the wife, with short legs. The other thing noticed was the lack of room next to the bed, by the so called storage space. Couldn't even turn sideways. And the wife couldn't even come close to reaching the upper shelves. No sale here......!!

I think you going to end up with a really high pin weight with the kitchen right over the pin.

There is one thing not mentioned. The closet beside the bed is also where the washer and dryer hook ups are. IMO not a good design for this model.

It never ceases to amaze me, no matter how many instances of stuff like this model comes up, that manufacturers only care about glitz and eye candy and don't seem to even consider functionality. We've walked through at least a dozen new units that were this bad or even worse. Just the simple requirement of being able to reach & use the refer and toilet should be a no-brainer! Ours lets us do that and also use the bedroom by putting out one slide only and while an inconvenience, it's far better than other floor plans. I really believe no one designing these things EVER tries to think of how to use them.

Funny, this is the one we were thinking of ordering, and since it won the RV of the year award, we were nervous that they would keep the pricing elevated? How can Montana please everyone? I mean, you all have different 5th wheel trailers. right? So do you argue about which one of you has the best 5th wheel, or do you all just get along and make whatever unit you buy work?

Since when do we Argue on which of our floor plans are the best??? you are a new member and I guess you have not noticed that is not the case and Constructive opinions and feedback is a good thing for Montana, anyway that is what is cool about Montana is they have so many floor plans to please everybody,we all have different needs and I think Montana fills all of them and that is one of the reasons we are number 1 for 14+ years

If you both like the floorplan and model, then you should buy it and enjoy! We have not found the perfect floorplan for us yet. Always some tradeoffs.

i also looked at the floor plan and like it somewhat. i did see a video of it on my dealers website and the quesiton about the dintte being close to the refridgerator is true. but the video i seen is that the table rotates like in our 3625 and then there is room on both sides to get in havnt seen on personally but do have questions on there storage for outside and the awning and being able to sit under neath it. the 3rd slide might make that a hinderance.

Big Sky, You are right! After re-reading my post, I agree, "argue" was the wrong choice of words to use. We are waiting to see one in person, so we can make our final decision. If we don't like it, we will probably go with the 3711FL

Even when you rotate the table, there is still not enough room to squeeze through.
