Hello everyone!
We're Gary and Robin currently residing in Colorado and expecting delivery of a new 3665RE in just a few more weeks. We will be selling property and going full time in a few more months and then moving to Florida to finish the last few obligations with our (government) jobs before we can split our time between cruising the Caribbean on a sailboat and cruising north America in the 5th wheel. Oh what a dream come true! We are very excited about the new home and can hardly wait for delivery so we can begin moving in (and finally coming to terms with the "down-sizing" part of this endeavour).
We just found out about the MOC forum last week and will be doing as much exploration and learning as we can cram into our schedules in the next few weeks. It promises to be a very busy time for us preparing to sell the house(s) and make ready for our trip to the Miami area. We will glady accept advice and insight into the geographical area as well as on subjects of being new owners and new RV'ers. We'll try not to ask too many ignorant questions, but we undoubtedly have a lot to learn.
Thanks in advance for your welcome and we're truly looking forward to sharing our adventures and experiences along the way.
Gary & Robin

Congratulations on you new 5th wheel and your up and coming adventures. There are no ignorant questions. If you have questions just ask anyway no matter how ignorant you may think they are. This is the place to gather lots of information that will help. Welcome to the MOC forums!

Welcome to this great bunch of people. Ask away because there are no ignorant questions. Answers to questions made by all here is what has helped us so much. We hope you can make it to Goshen, IN in September for the 2008 MOC Fall Rally. Here, you will be able to meet with a large number of fellow Montana owners in a very relaxed setting and also representatives from Keystone and the vendors. Here you can not only hear about fixes and problems but also see what you need to see. Also, let us know about your adventures with your new Montana.

Gary & Robin, Welcome to "The Best Darned Forum on the WWW!". Before buying our Montana, we had never RV'd before in our life. We have found this forum to be INVALUABLE to our adventure. Don't be shy, just remember we were all where you are right now. In this day of "Information galore", as I like to call it, there is no reason not to learn things. From fixing black tank problems to rewiring your surround sound and everything in between, this forum has it all. If nothing else, the page: MOC Owners Club Web Page, different links for different things about RVing, is the greatest single source of information available. Be sure to visit there.

Enjoy your travels and your new rig!!!!

Welcome Gary and Robin! Enjoy your new rig and plans.

Take that Monty out and run it through the course to shake the bugs out before you commit to living in it, because once you move in it gets pretty difficult to return to the Dealer for repairs. I would not rely on perfection from the RV industry like you might for your home or car.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your upcoming lifestyle. I totally agree it sounds like a "dream come true". We retired a few years ago and now spend the winters in FL in our Montana and the summers in the mountains of WV which is where I was from originally and still have family. We too hope to meet you at the MOC Fall Rally in Goshen.
As an attendee of past rallies I highly reccommend them. Great group of people, these Montana owners!!!!

Welcome to the forum. You'll love the winters in Florida. Lots and lots of RV parks and state parks to chose from.
If you love sailing then dock walking in Clearwater or Naples on the west coast is the place to be. We've met some of the nicest people in RV's and boats.

Welcome to the forum. We purchased the same model. Besides small items, we have had little trouble with the trailer. Enjoy and God Bless.
