Joining the Montana Life

Just signed the paper on a 3855BR, but haven't been able to bring it home yet. I have to get the truck traded (this weekend) to have a vehicle to tow it with. Looking forward to digging through the forum to learn about the new rig.

When looking for weights for trucks, the pin weight Keystone lists is almost always way under reality. Also, for truck capacity, start with dry weight, add in passenger weight, fuel weight, hitch weight and anything else you may carry. So take this total weight and add in probably 3200 for the pin weight (Keystone says 2900). Good luck.

MSand, congratulations on the new truck and Montana. Love our 2021 Ram and Montana. Great place to learn about your Montana and meet some new friends. Look at the rally sections to see if you can fit one (or more) into your schedule.
