Hello everyone- Barbara and I just got our Montana last week. We haven't taken her on the maiden voyage yet. 1st trip will be May 12th to Watkins Glenn, New York. Looking forward to reading all the info about Montana's. We hope we made a great choice. We have the 2019 331RL

Welcome to the forum, great place to meet new people and get answers to many questions. We just bought our 3121RL and have learned a few things along the way.
Never travel with shades pulled down!
Right everything you need fixed down so you don't forget and get it fixed ASAP!
Watch while turning sharply, Montana's do NOT have the V front end cap!!!!!!!

Plus lots more that are only Montana stuff. Ask here if you have any questions people on this forum are very helpful and very friendly!

Enjoy your new rig and be safe out there!!!!!!!!

Walking the Glen is a beautiful walk with all the waterfalls.

Welcome aboard! The HC331 is a sweet floor plan...love the dual vanities. It's heavy, though, so please be safe and pull it with a properly rated tow vehicle. Enjoy!

Thanks- We can't wait to get going- I have a 2021 Ford F-250 Diesel, I believe that will be plenty of power.

Welcome and congrats on the new camper. Hopefully, you have the opportunity to driveway camp before you first road trip. Driveway camping gives you the opportunity to stock the camper and figure out what's really important to take along and what can really be left behind before you find yourself away from home. Also, it helps you get familiar with all the systems in the camper so there are no surprises or unknowns once you hit that first campground. Also, if possible, take it on the road for a few trips around the block, around town, and down a few roads. Find a couple empty parking lots, like school parking lots, and practice backing, parking, cornering, and even simulated pull through camp sites. Take some boards, or street hocky cones to use for markers in the parking lots and try navigating around them. Practice is key and being familiar with the camper is golden when venturing off on your maiden voyage.

Again, congrats on yojr new purchase! Have fun and enjoy!

Welcome Aboard the MOC Forum! You have found the greatest place to learn about your new Montana and ask questions both about it and the Montana Owners Club overall. Don't feel like you can't ask questions because there is never any "dumb" questions. You will find a wealth of knowledge here on the Forum concerning your Montana, traveling, camping in general and even Rallies that are held around the country for Montana Owners Club members to go to. If you go to any of the Regional or National Rallies you will meet fellow owners and make lifelong friends also. There is a lot of things the Montana owners have done to make their units more livable to their lifestyles and you will find you may also need to dig into your pocket/wallet and spend a little to make improvements you hear about or see on the Forum and also at the Rallies. Enjoy that new unit and hope to meet you somewhere along the way and maybe at some of the Rallies.

Thanks again for the advice- The good news is I have pulled a 5th wheeler and TT for years. You aren't wrong, this one is bigger and heavier. Thanks again!
