Over all length

This has probaly already been hashed over but I haven't come across it yet. June and I love to fish and would like to tow our boat behind our monty when we get it. Is there a total length restriction. If so does it vary from stste to state. We will have a 3500 CC for TV and right now concidering the 3650RK. We would be towing a 21 ft stratos.
PS OZZ, we love your flag gizzmo. Reminds me of the bridge on my old carrier CVA-64. Yep boys, another

Although I tow a 15' SeaDoo Squirt Boat behind my 31' fiver, I'm right at the "legal " limit of 65' in most midwestern states. With that long a fiver and the size of your boat including the trailer tounge, you're looking at 80' or better ... just a tad over any known limits and "common sense". Above all, you're going to void the frame warranty as Keystone discourages any hitch installation. This is something you'll have to resolve in your own mind. Although I admit, you see it several times during the summer, that's a lot of boat to be hooked to the frame on your Monty. JMHO

Hi ArkieBug - we also have a 3650RK, I am working on a attachable trailer to haul our EZ GO Gulf cart. MOC Member bsmeaton (Brad) has a large boat behind his montana you need to look at his profile he has a picture. There is a web site and it will give you the requirements per state. No I am not the expert, but have been told the minute you put a hitch on the rear of your MONTY, you void the warranty on the FRAME. More MOC members will be along with more information. hope some of what I laid out will help you. safe travels John
