Keystone Montana 3625re

I want to be a fulltimer and I wanted to know if the Keystone Montana is good for that. Im purchasing or should I say want to purchase a 2015 Keystone Montanna 3625re. The living room is really big in this one but it has no w/d hook up and I hate that but I can get this one new at a really good deal. What do yall think?

Take a look at the 3582RL it has the washer and dryer hookups and a good size living room. It also has a great kitchen area DW love that. And welcome from Arizona.

Aren't the washer dryer connections in the front closet in the 3625?

I also believe this is true. If it is nearby, take a look and see.

Take the time to see lots of montana models in person so you can see the tradeoffs each one requires you to make. I wouldn't hinge a buying decision on washer/dryer space being a must have. We do have space for separatevwasher and dryer. We decided to use it for alternate storage and use laundry at parks. John

I can't believe it doesn't have washer/dryer connections. I would look again. Probably in the closet.

The washer/dryer was a must have for us. We full-time and at $3.50+ a load to wash and dry, it adds up fast. I also know someone who got a staph infection from having their laundry done at a laundromat. I had never thought about that before and that cinched it for us.

Recommendation - get the separate washer and dryer if you can. If you much go with a combo unit, get the vented unit. We started with an unvented unit and hated it. Took forever to dry and the clothes came out really wrinkled.

In answer to your basic question, we full timed six years in a Montana and it held up well. Just takes a little loving care and occasional maintenance.

Welcome to the forum. We full time in a 3665RE which is a similar model. I went to the Keystone website and your model has the washer dryer prep in the middle of the front closet. Less than ideal in my opinion, but never the less still there and available. You may need to use a combination in it. We have a Splendide and love it. I would also be cautious of a dealer that doesn't know there is a washer dryer hookup.

I have a 2014 3625..the hookups are prepped inside the rear closet in the bedroom. The small dresser is removed and the washer dryer unit installed.

Staph infection???? that has got to be one in a million shot if not more,i get the reason why some people want a washer /Dryer but that is not one of them and also that $3.50 for a load of wash and dry is WAY bigger in a industrial machine in our resorts and you are done as opposed to a RV Wash/dry in a RV unit

If you do any camping at State parks, COE or other Federal campgrounds you may find no laundry facilities for many miles. When that happens we're glad we have the W/D. Beats going commando.
