Fall Rally???

Has anyone heard anything about it? The dates are posted, but it's nearly July and no sign up yet! Yeah, I'm anxious!

Not yet, a number of members have indicated they will be in Goshen that week for sure.

We are one couple that have so indicated.

My guess, wagon master issues. Gotta have one.

You'd make a great one. Would that be Wagon Mistress?

Ah...forget about the wagon master and just go with the flow! Carol, I am sure you can head it up overall, but why? Better yet, just have a bunch of folks show up, sit around and enjoy the lifestyle, their rigs, and the area. One does not need a "wagon master" to have a party! Schedule your calendars and show up if you want to join in the party...those that are there I'm sure will have a great time - regardless of who's in charge.

Great thoughts! No telling who they could get at this late date

That's too bad. I heard they were going to give the wagon master (mistress) a new Montana this year.

Ok, the cat is now officially out of the bag. Look under announcements.

Carol ~ sorry kiddo. I am not sure the group would appreciate my rolling in with "Red". Looks like I am down to the last 2+/- weeks...been a fun and wild ride! Who would have thought that 8 years and 3 Montana's later change is on the horizon. But as they say, all things must eventually come to an end. I'm sure you will have a good time....

Thanks Rich! Craziest part is I went in with the intent to order a 2013 3400RL Big Sky and walked out placing an order for "Red" in the 36RL. I noted a few ex Montana owners on the other form a few weeks ago. Sadly, that site is no where near the caliber of the MOC. The owners of this club have done a real nice job with the MOC.

Rich, same GVWR as your Big Sky - 16,000 lbs. Kingpin on the 36RL is approx. 2500 lbs out of factory. Your truck can do it!

Ah, you were looking at the bonus room model. Interesting concept... This will probably be my last fifth wheel and I am comfortable with my '11 Ram 3500 to do the job. I am thinking my next rig will be a transition into the Allegro Bus/Zephyr Class A diesel pushers. Hardest part is the Redwood and Elite Suites are among my top picks right now for fifth wheels and both brands are pushing the 1 ton trucks to the edge of capacities. Good thing I have at least 5-7 years to make that decision since Red is not even here yet...

Don't know what some of these manufacturers are thinking of.Many of the larger or Full time 5th wheels are at or over the limits for a 1 ton truck.
