Hidden Compartments....

I remember reading in older threads about some/all of the older Montanas having hidden compartments. I've top-to-bottomed my 3710 and have come to the conclusion that the hidden compartments are now, unfortunately, a thing of Montana lore....

Has anyone found anything to the contrary?

Safe Travels!

Maybe it's real well hidden?

In our 3075RL, on the right side of the bedroom big closet, is a smaller closet, on the upper right inside wall of that closet is a hidden door where you can't put much more that a wallet or keys. Don't tell anyone else!

I'm thinking that from my searches on here, 2010 was the last year for this cool feature....Thanks for the responses everyone!

Our 2007 3075RL has two hidden compartments. But I have never used either. Maybe no one else was using them either.

Maybe owners realize a hidden or secret compartment is not so secret anymore once discussed, so there is no discussion.

Our 2012 - 3402RL has the "secret" compartment as well as what was implied as a "safe" in the under bed storage compartment. I don't think any Montana owners go around searching for valuables in other Montana owners units, but for a thief it might provide minimal protection for small items.
So in some units it was provided as late as 2012.

I can say where mine was in my 2012 2402RL now because I sold it but it was a small key/wallet cabinet that looked like just a partition panel in the bedroom closet on the top shelf on the right side pretty cool and tricky and would not have noticed it if another 3402RL member did not tell me

We have one, but have never used it. I would assume we aren't alone and that's why they don't come on the new ones.

My 2010 3000RK doesn't have a secret compartment. At least, I can't find one. I think the bigger models had them, but mine is one of the smallest made.

This is the first I've heard about a hidden compartment. I'll be looking for it for sure when the cover comes off.

For the purpose of everyone's individual OPSEC, I simply was asking if there WERE any nowadays, not WHERE they were.

Best one is in bathroom with pedal to open. Retrival is kind of difficult.
