New Owner in Arkansas

Hi everyone, we are Paul and Tracy Bridges in Fort Smith, Arkansas. We purchased our first 5th wheel in a 2004 Montana 3575RL. She really liked the layout and it seemed to be in excellent condition and a great value.

Although we are new to the 5er, we also have a 1958 Rainbow that my grandfather bought new. I've got a blog on the Rainbow at that chronicles the history.

The Rainbow is a little small for full-timing, and we are preparing for retirement by spending most of our time in the Montana.

The forum has already been a help trying to figure out how things work that we didn't get in orientation when we bought it. But it seems like a solid RV and hope we have many years in it. Grateful for the forum.

Congratulations & Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the MOC. That rainbow looks really sweet! Do you have any pictures of the inside? On a side note, you might want to make the pictures a little smaller in pixel size.

Welcome from snowy (at least tonight) Colorado. Our first Montana was a 3400, nice floor plan. Good luck and may you have many trouble free miles.
