I have a new Legacy and would not be without the disc brakes. Also, it has two side cameras as well as the standard backup camera. The package includes a solid built-in surge protector (not sure if that's standard), love the built-in cord reel; it makes cord management so much easier and it's located in the middle of the trailer, I prefer the Mor-Ryde suspension and hitch, being able to operate most systems with my smartphone is very convenient.

We ordered our Legacy in Sept 2019. We went with the works including paint. The paint was important to us, so the Legacy package was NOT optional. This is by far the most well built and beautiful unit (inside and out) that we have had. I think the In Command and solar are awesome. And the generator was a must for us. We spend most of our time travelling to BC, Yukon and Alaska.
Now we just need to use it.

The Legacy package was well worth the upgrade in price for us. LOVE the disk brakes now that I got all of the air bled out of the system. The full body paint is great too & the rear cap is a beautiful upgrade over the flat back wall. The surge protector isnít the greatest unit. Doesnít give all of the protection of a true EMS. The generator/solar prep wasnít a big deal for us. Love the camera system. Donít use the side cameras much, but the rear camera is a life saver.

Agree on the cameras, Tom. Unfortunately, our 3791RD can't have the rear cap due to the garage door. I guess I'd rather have the garage anyway, but the rear cap does look nice. The surge protector is very basic, and not an EMS. Gen and solar prep not a big deal for us either. I have no intention of using either.

We purchased a new (to us) 2019 3121RL with the legacy package about 6 weeks ago. Right when the Rv market was still dead but before the present boom in central Tx. Ours did not have the disc brakes😢 but we will be adding them. As it was used, I am not certain what the elderly owners before us added but we have a solar panel, full body paint, cord reel, double pane windows, washer/dryer stack, rear cap, residential fridge (this is where the solar is very useful), rear heat pump, in command center, upgraded (?) suspension, etc. Not too sure about all of the electronics but am trying to get used to them. I miss light switches!
I should probably be in jail right now because for what we paid, we would be considered having stolen his rig. Happy with the Legacy Package. It is well worth what the previous owners paid for it!
This our travel rig which we will occupy 4 or 5 months per year. The rest of the time while in the US, we live in our Mobile Suites which we do not tow. Happy, for the most part, with the quality of this rig. I do have a problem which I will post about on a new thread.

We have no regrets!
Happy travels!
Sorry to break it to you the Legacy Package adds little to the resale value. Last year we purchased our 2019 3791RD Used with Legacy and full body paint. The previous owner only had it for about 6 months. The MSRP was $110K they paid $86K I bought it used for $58K. Like all that purchase a new Montana you will take a bath when you decide to sell it, these thing depreciate like crazy (we would NEVER buy new). Let me add we bought ours from a dealer.

Having owner a legacy with full body paint i would not order one with Legacy if I did buy new.

The Brakes are great (I would add those myself though), the in command take it or leave it.

The Cord reel nice but it is a challenge to get it to wind properly without having to hand control the cord making it a dirty job.

The cabinet Stiles (really that is an upgrade) no big deal.

Gen Prep nice to have but I do not plan to use a installed gen ( I will use portable if needed.

The Furrion Camera system is total junk, I plan to remove it and install a wired system.

Full Body paint I do really like not $9K like but I do like it, however I can easily live without it. Here in the NW with all the trees paint can easily scratch, at least with the standard gel coat it is easily repaired. although the stickers have a limited life.

So overall having owned a newer legacy package Montana I would not spend extra except for the Brakes, however I am proud of the Montana Legacy we own and get lots of compliments on the Full Body paint from many including other Montana owners.

Bottom line though that $9K for Legacy plus the cost of Paint you will be lucky to get 10%-20% of that back when you resell however you will likely sell yours faster then non legacy competition for sale at the same time.

We paid 70k for ours and the MSRP was 114K. It was new and from a dealer, RV USA in VA. I like the legacy package including in Command. It was hot today and we went shopping In Orlando after Church so I used in Command to check the temperature inside of our Montana, pretty cool.

MSRP is FAKE NEWS, no one has ever paid MSRP and if they did God help them in life, in fact it it just shows how unethical the industry is. If you think those inflated numbers actually mean anything then I have a bridge to sell you. Name any other High dollar product that has a retail price of $114k and you buy from the dealer for $70K ($44K discount 40% discount) and this applies almost 100% of the time.

Now take that 40% discount (haha) and in 6 months it is worth another 20% less which is exactly what happened to the folks that owned my Montana Legacy. and today my 2019 probably has a real value of $49K to $52K which is a 50% reduction from MSRP in one model years time.

Lights out I am just saying that you don’t have to pay 86k new for a painted legacy. I paid 70k.

Did your name come from the book?

I believe the rear cap is mostly aesthetics.
Day night shades are also standard.
Solar prep on all Montanas.
Minor difference in suspension.

I can't speak to the newer models, but 2016/17 Legacy cabinets are NOT the same. Doors and hardware yes. Face frames no. The Legacy face frames are solid hardwood, the standard models got vinyl covered poplar.

Who said I paid $86K I paid $58K the previous owner paid $86K then kept it 6 months then I bought it. My point was the Paint and legacy does not increase resale value much if at all, whereas it only adds to your losses when you sell. Legacy and Paint is not a wise option investment.

I wouldn't buy one of these new if I didn't intend to keep it 10 years or more. I'm of the opinion that buying used is buying someone else's headache but good buys can be found with enough patience. Our trailer without the legacy didn't have the look we like.

RVs are like boats, they are wood and fiberglass structures into which one dumps money.
