20th Anniversary changes/new features

Having looked over the new features added for the 20th Edition Montana I just can't believe they discontinued the arched ceiling.

Really?

One can add all the bling but we wouldn't trade all that crap for the arched ceiling hands down.

When people step into our Montana the first thing they notice is the open feeling as compared to any other 5er they have been in.

Bad move Keystone/Montana. Perhaps JMHO though!

I was told by the owner of my local dealership, it was done to raise the height of the slides somehow.

I did like one of the changes they made on our specific unit, the clothes hamper in master closet that tilts outwards.

Yes we can understand the hamper is a nice feature as we had one in our 3455 model and now don't in our current 3721 but value the arched ceiling far more.

There was a lot of negative comments when they introduced the arched ceiling a few years ago.I do not care as long as we have a ceiling.

Arched ceiling means more air space to cool and less room for insulation. The Whisper Quiets just might work in 100 degree situations with that configuration.
