Newbie Members & Rvers

Bought our 2001 Montana 3295RK and headed south from Oregon in Dec '03 for the winter. Had a very wonderful trip through Calif and AZ. All went well, as we followed our checklist at each stop. Only one catastrophic experience that we didn't expect---hitting a dip after passing through an intersection caused the rear to bounce and---yes, almost every overhead cabinet opened which we discovered at our next destination. Took over 2 hours to clean out the broken glass from between the slides before we could put them out! Poor Simon-cat had to wait in the truck till we got it all vaccumed. Now, we are bungied and use plastic! Enjoyed our 4 month travels and look forward to more this next winter.

Welcome Fred and Carolyn to the MOC we are so glad to have you here. Glad that you had a nice 4 months of travel although sorry about the broken glass. I have not had that happen yet but it is probably waiting for me down the road.

Welcome from another new Oregon Montana owner. We are headed to Reedsport to Umpqua Lighthouse for Labor Day weekend. We have been around there but never stayed there before. We are looking forward to it.

Welcome! We love Oregon and think the coastline there is one of the prettiest to travel. Enjoy your Montana!

Welcome to the MOC. Sorry about the problem. I guess sooner or later we all hit a bad bump in the road.
