I have a 2005 3295rk and while I've had few problems, after reading all the complaints about the problems these Montana's have been having over the last 10 years I've come to a few conclusions
1) Even though Keystone says they can be used for full timing or long timing, they really can't.
2) Looking at the current crop Keystone has really cheapened the brand
3) The build quality of "all" the newer units that I looked at is crap
4) Keystone really doesn't care as long as they are selling units.
5) richfaa you are to nice of a guy. Over 50 days in the shop is un-excusable when you are waiting for something stupid like the correct seals. It would seem to me like somebody is dropping the ball or they don't want to work on it because your warranty doesn't pay enough.
6) I highly doubt, in fact I know that when it comes time to replace my current 5er it will not be a Keystone product unless something drastic changes.
No brand is IMO is suitable for full timing. These are recreational vehicles and built to those standards.
My extended warranty pays 100% of the cost of the failed holding tanks. That is not a issue. There are other issues that will be on my Dime and they are all build quality issues. I except nothing from Keystone. The bill is on my Extended warranty co and me.
that we can not get a seal that was OEM on a 2103 unit shows the inefficiency of the parts and order system.
Good luck on purchasing anything better on a comparable SOB brand.
If I thought there was better I would have purchased it instead of another Montana.
IMO I did not get a lemon but a normal Montana with typical problems. My 06 was the same. IMO folks are hesitant to report "problems" and just post "we had a few minor problems" Nobody wants to say they spent big $$$ and have a lot of problems but I say we should and report everyone of them to Keystone.
