Why do I go to MOC daily?

In past three years I have learned more about my RV from MOC then from all the articles and books I read. Montana owners should be proud to own an RV that other owners are willing to share the "good, bad and the ugly! Montana's nor any RV is perfect. The difference is in the owners. We are real people, trying to enjoy life, without bankrupting ourselves. A true group of "American owners", who enjoy the RV life, but are willing to share their experience without fear of its consequences. How often in this life does that happen? I have gained 3 close "couples" as friends, because of this group. I need to share this tonight, I have never been as proud to belong to any organization, as I am today! Hope others feel as blessed! Thank you each and all! May each day bring great memories to each of us and our families! ( no I have not been drinking)! Lol

Michael and Sue!

Our transition from virtually no camping experience to full timers was made easy with all of the information and advice from MOC. Thank you.

What a great post! We, too have found good friends in this group and have received valuable, practical info. If we got a new rig it would most likely be a Montana, not because go brand loyalty, but because of this group and also the support we get from Keystone as members.

Even tho when we were ready for a new RV Montana didn't have the floor plan we were looking for, so we went the SOB route. But I've stayed a member here because of the Good Folks and the fact that 95% of RV problems are not brand specific.
BigskyJimmy, you hit the ball out of the park about I was recently callled all kinds of names because I'm a firm believer in Synthetic Oil. Every now and again there is some useful info there, BUT nothing like the info gained from the MOC Group.
Everybody give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.
Safe Travels to everyone, and Happy Holidays

Michael and Sue, I read your post regarding the great valuable information shared on the MOC forum and agree with your poiint of view, however, I don't mean to "stir the pot " but all Montana owners and members are not all Americans. I am a proud Canadian and there are a significant number of Canadian's that own Montana RVs that were manufactured in the USA and the Canadians have also contributed to the MOC Forum. From my perspective I guess the MOC members are North American members.

Exactly the statement I was going to make. When we drove out of state to pick up our first "gently used" Montana we were newbies, a month later we were full timers. Even though the seller was good about showing us everything about our unit, I probably only retained half of it.

To this day almost everything that comes up with our Montana, or our lifestyle, I can get answers or advise that I trust on this forum.

Another Canadian member here that can't resist the daily dose of the MOC family!!! We are now on our 4th Montana and this forum of great people have helped so much with our ownership experiences that whenever we look at an SOB the value of being a part of this forum keeps bringing us back to the Montana line.

I wholeheartedly agree! Even though I have yet to meet any of you in person, I owe so many of you a debt of gratitude. The MOC has helped us over and over again.

And, yes, has gotten so nasty that I haven't logged on there for months.

We bought our Montana cause we had a friend with a 3150RL. We liked the floor plan.

Then discovered the forum. A great amount of experience here, and I appreciate the input from other owners that have already "been there".

To our Canadian members I apologize for the omission. I should have said "North America"! But then I know we have members from abroad. Just one big international family ! Thank you one and all!

A good post Michael & Sue!
I too value the members here and their sage advice. I don't always agree with every post but I do visit daily and enjoy the insight provided by the members. Betty and I have met some wonderful people through the MOC and look forward to meeting more in the years ahead.

X2 plus more. We are back in Canada again for an indefinite time, but still look into this forum almost daily. As others have mentioned it is a great source of information, more than worth the time spent checking out each of your input.

I also agree with the post. I have been RV'ing a long time. Several different brands and types. I also get frustrated with Keystone and sometimes the quality control issues. That being said, this is a great forum to get these problems resolved. I am on this site nearly everyday. I am yet to not get a issue resolve.
Have met some of the members and not to mention that a (out of control neighbor jlb27537) is always there to help if needed, thank goodness he is going to Texas for the winter and I am going to Florida. Gives the neighborhood a break.
Great forum, great people, great RV's, thanks to all of you. Happy Holidays.

I agree this is the BEST forum out there!! I am always surprised when I ask other Montana owners I meet, that are not members, if they have heard about the MOC and they are either not interested in it or even turn their nose up at it. There is so much great info and wonderful people here. My DW & I have met several of the members here and have made good friends with them. Just wish we could make one of the rallies some time.
