New to Forum

Hi All,
Well my wife and me are new to this forum. Last Saturday we picked up our brand new Montana 3580RL Big Sky. It has the full body paint, the Lippet 6 point leveling system and everything else in the world on it. It is a real work of art. This is our third RV and our second 5th wheel. I am going to have to get used to the 37 ft length. I am pulling it with a 2002 Ford F250 4X4 and 4 door short bed. The truck has added to it a large AFE breather systen, Edge Programer, over size transmission oil cooler, transmission lock, over size exhaust system, B&W Companion hitch and Firestone 5,000# air bags. I pull a dump trailer, stock trailer and flatbed trailer and it does a top job. I have been reading the site and have receivd a lot of good information. I am sure I will have question at a later date. I worked 30 years as a peace office and have been retired for 11 years. Wife still drives a school bus and is getting ready to retire soon.

Based on your location, I am guessing you bought your trailer from Folsom Lake RV in Sacramento, CA. If so, I saw it sitting on the lot last week and it is a beauty! The new "Big Sky" package is a nice addition particularly the Goodyear G614 tires.

Welcome to the MOC!

We just ordered a new rig from FLRV and are hoping that it arrives soon. But we just got a call from them today and they told me that it could be delayed for up to 4 weeks per Charles Wade. That could create a problem for us if it doesn't come in sooner than that.

Rich & Kathy, which model did you order? It looks like it will be a month until we get our #3700RL per Keystone.
