Doesn't make me feel special, I still prefer our 3850FL Big Sky to any of the new ones. I did note the dishwasher is a mandatory option, but am curious as to what brand they are putting in them? Got a hunch that one we had installed is a better one than is offered, but that is my opinion only! Ironically, the name is still Big Sky by Montana!

Time will tell if this is a great idea or not.

I'm with Bingo. I knew the change was coming before we brought our 3850. We were happy when we purchased the unit and still are.

Ah Rich, by now you of all people should have figured out the IT department uses the same QA practices as the assembly line. They slap together a page, trying new HTML features they don't understand, and then expose the page(s) to the general public. No sense building your web presence on a "test" server and then, once it has been "completed", exposing the pages to the outside world.

You noticed the generic Goodyear G range tires. How about each rig having two Lippert 6-point leveling systems???

Someday Montana will realize dealers don't carry every model at their site. The economic crash stopped that altogether. Now the Montana web site is the only place to "see" the various models and features. It does no one any good to have incorrect, missing, and sloppy information.

We love our 3900 FB Big Sky and are very glad we got it before the coming price increase.

Same here. Happy we bought a 2013 vs. 2014, because we liked several of the 2013 features that were deleted in the 2014. We are happy campers. Just return from a 2-week trip an the RV worked flawlessly.

We would have liked the 12 inch frame and just missed that. We also knew the changes were coming but had no confidence that the build quality would be any better. Was also concerned about the weight as we are at the limit on our 08 F-350. Also noted "Hydraulic disk brakes" which is good and MAY indicate a higher weight but still the OEM suspension. If we keep this thing we will have the Mor Ryde IS installed and the disk brakes.
I also do not understand the thinking of launching a new unit with new specs then not posting them.... Or do I....
dealer on Monday and we will see...

I don't think the dealer will help you any Rich! We were at an open house today here in the Omaha area and Kaz was there and he really didn't know much about the new Big Sky's either let alone the dealer. He said they will be posting the specs as soon as they have built enough of them and can get all the specifics on them. They are putting out 20 Montana's out a day off the line(multiple models) and the Montana line is only putting out about three or four. Much slower process from what I understand.
