Rich, right on. The wiring of the hydraulic brake pump tells me everything I need to know. Same crap, different wrapper.

The wires on the left should be in a wire loom and that white thing on the right is the hydraulic brake line with no support visible. Wait till it vibrates and cracks.

Thanks for the pictures. I'll keep my discontinued '14 3150RL

We also checked out the Big Sky at Lazydays yesterday. It's a beautiful rig, but no better (and maybe worse) construction than our 09 3400. And what is up with all the dark interiors? We checked out the new Montanas too and all that we saw had dark wood with black or dark brown furniture. Where is the beautiful golden oak or maple cabinets? How about some lighter colored furniture? We didn't see anything, Keystone or SOB, that we would trade ours for. The salesman told us the color schemes run in cycles. So maybe next year!

Being full time and planning on staying that way for years to come, the floor plan was our first consideration. We really liked the Big Sky and actually thought the Alpine was another good choice by Keystone. The 3725RL floor plan really impressed us. By getting a loaded 3725RL about the only thing missing was full body paint. As far as quality of Montanas, I know we looked at some $120,000 to $128,000 SOB Fivers at Lazy Days which sure didn't seem to be built any better.

That is the problem they are not built any better. The impression we got at the fall rally was that the new Big Sky would be a premium unit, a cut above .My 13 Big Sky is a off the line Montana with G6-14 tires and a paint job. Same issues and failures as previous. Again.. what is upgraded, what is better. Frame, suspension, Build quality...what...

Could not agree more! We moved up to the Montana because the wood is still warm, while the Mountaineer is dark, dark, dark. I have no idea what these designers are thinking about. In the Northwest, it's already dark in the forests and mountain parks, I don't want it darker! We simply don't understand what they're trying to achieve.
