Hello! We are brand new at all of this and would welcome some advice. These are the two fifth-wheels that we have found that fit our need with kids (i.e triple or quad bunks) What is your experience with these brands? We want to make a good purchase and feel that we got a quality product. Thanks for any advice!

I bought an 06 Mountianeer w/ 3 slides. Had a few minor issues that were fixed quickly and efficiently at the dealer. We love the layout, everything gave us good service and I would buy another one in a heartbeat. I think it is good value for my money. Hope this helps!

Welcome! We looked for quite a while before we bought, and finally decided on the Mountaineer. Structurally it's the same as the Montana, but without all the bells and whistles and the Montana price tag. There were some minor issues, but all taken care of to our satisfaction by our dealer. We've had it for 2 yrs now, and have no regrets about our decision.

Thanks for the tips! We bought the Mountaineer today! After doing a search here on what to look for in a fifth wheel, we went back and really checked out the quality of each model (i.e. really checking out all the finishing work, cabinetry, underneath the unit, etc.) and the Montana definitely seemed much better! So glad to have found this board with great tips and advice! Thanks a bunch!
