Ok no one has answered your question so I will try since i have had two Montanas with frame flex.

Look at the radius area forward of the propane tank compartment. The caulking will be cracked or separated from that edge trim piece. If not hooked up you need to look very closely to see it. If hooked up it will be obvious. My rig has been in the shop three times to fix this and I still have a small amount of flex.
The good thing is most rigs do not have this problem. Also it can be fixed but it is a hassle.

So an update. I ended up pulling the 2015 375 FLF home. It is in great shape with the exception of one of the cable slides needing some work. It binds a bit and I think it could use some adjustment.

Thanks Lenny. I hope to. I have to go get the slide looked at but most of the stuff isn't even out of the packages in the unit. I don't know how to put the couches with the air mattresses together but I will figure it out.

We have a 2008 3400RL. Love it!! Love the floor plan, My friend has the 2010 3400RL and also loves hers. We've been looking at the new floor models. We prefer to have the living room in the back since I always choose a back in site with a view or woods etc. It's nice to sit and watch nature while inside sometimes. We've both upgraded our trailers with Level-ups. (So nice!) Also upgraded to the new G tires. That being said, 2010 is going on 8 yrs old. I'd go with the newer one just for longevity.
Linda (the wife) and it's true - happy wife, happy life!!

Thanks for the heads up. I was set on the 2010 but she likes the one we got. Lost a u joint or something on the way home. First pull was 300 miles and got a weird vibration about twenty from home. Need some bags and tires on both the truck and trailer before spring. Also I want to buy a cover for it

We had a cover on ours hoping to save the decals. Lost cause... They all peeled off so we had it painted. (2008 was a bad year for decals). Anyway I believe the cover made our roof coating ripple and get black mold/algae. (We're in southern Indiana). Also if you do put one on, pad the roof gutter drains on the corners. Those ripped our cover! Enjoy your Montana! Maybe we'll see you at the Fall National Rally sometime! (They are great for info and support from fellow Montana owners and Keystone!!)

Thanks for the advice on the covers. I will definitely try in the future to meet up at one of the rallies. I need to do a few things to the tow vehicle and the unit before I take it too far.

Used the unit for the last week at our rodeo. Everything worked well with the exception of slide out issue but that will be looked at in a couple of weeks. I will need to replace the mattress as soon as possible as it is horrible. Thanks again everyone for the opinions and advice.
