Comments on Keystone Montana fifth-wheels?

I'm noticing that a lot of used Keystone Montana fifth-wheels appear in dealer statistics. So I assume that means that they've had a significant percentage of the market for years now?

I plan to full-time at my own rural site in Bryan/CollegeStation/Caldwell,TX area for many years and rarely (if ever) move whatever 32' to 40' unit I buy.

I hate to waste space on couches and "built-in dining booths" but will I find essential structures or infra-structures inside them which prevents my utilizing that space for other purposes?

Were there any major changes in the Keystone Montana models for particular years which may impact my decisions?

I'm willing to buy an older unit to get a good value but I'm also willing to pay extra for quality if the ROI warrants. (I wouldn't mind spending $30,000 to $35,000 if necessary but if $12,000 or $22,000 units have few downsides ---and/or only have disadvantages for those who spend a lot of time on the road with them---then I'd prefer to save the money upfront and perhaps spend a few thousand on some of my own add-ons or repairs.)

Advice is appreciated.

All the booths can be taken out without much issue. Usually the only kind of dual purpose would be for outside storage, but that's it.

I recommend getting a guide, such as RV Consumer Group, then looking at several brands. When you compare a middle-rated rig with a high-rated rig you will begin to learn what to look for.
