Graphics on the new Montes

Graphics have been a big issue on older Montes, even up to at least some of those in the 2010/2011 model years I think. Some of those starting to peel with in a year or two of new.

What about the newest years? Have they managed to solve the decal problem? Or is it still too early to tell. Starting to consider moving up to a new one, primarily for latest features, especially level up, larger fridges, etc. I have been very fortunate with my decals and really don't want to buy a new one only to find myself with that problem early on.

Graphics on our 2015 don't look much different from our others. Our 2010 held up well.

Talked to Mark Krol earlier this week and he told me they have a new company doing the graphics now and they are suppose to be standing by them, so we'll see how things go over the next couple of years!

Our graphics are now 35 months old and are just as good as new. We are full timers and Monty is never covered or stored inside. Graphics on our 2008 3400 RL lasted about 18 months.

hey Bill, we have 2011 Montana High Country 323RL, we bought it new on the lot last year, a deal we couldn't pass up, the decals started having issues, took it in to the dealer, we wanted the decals replaced, but they went a step further and had front and back caps re-painted, and replaced all of the decals, it now looks better new, I asked them if Keystone had fixed the issue, the salesman replied, just buy a "Big Sky" with full body paint.

I think the full paint is the best solution. On the recent trip out west, I have noticed that more than Montana's have front graphic problems--as well as some on the side. It is all cosmetic and does not effect how the RV will work, tow or anything else except look good to sale!

We've had ours for three years now and the only problems with the graphics are the result of contact with tree branches in tight spots. Would also be a problem for full paint.

A true statement, although an expensive option. We've had our 2013 since April 2012. It's stored outside uncovered facing SE when not being used. Our graphics are as good as new. I look at them every time I pass it by expecting to see a problem. I wish I could release that expectation from my head!
