New Montana 3900FB

Anyone else look at this trailer? Keystone is using a bigger frame on this bad boy. If you have not seen it - it is a 1 1/2 bath unit. There is a 1/2 bath in the bottom off the kitchen area. Then it really gets nice up the steps. 1st you walk through the bedroom, and then into a hugh bathroom. The bathroom has two sinks, two medicine cabinets on opposite walls and a large shower. In the very front you have a large closet.

Anyone else see this unit yet? If so, what did you think?

I seen it at the Pittsburgh show back in January, I liked it, but prefer the Alpine version. Based just on appearance.

I guess most Montanas are built on a 10" frame. The 3900FB is built on a 12" frame.

All the larger units already were on a 12 inch frame! So this is no big deal!
Hoping that a frame improvement was at hand.

rmalikone - check out this video. Especially at the two minute mark. What is he talking about Hickory vs Paramount? This is where he talks about 10" and 12" frames.

Seen the video, I know that they were using the 12 inch frame anyway on other large units. I think "salesman" was just pushing something that was already there!

Got to see one at a new dealership starting up in Minnesota. those L.E.D. lights on the front where a darker blue than the video showed I thought. Very nice unit, large storage bays, and nice interior.

They are really putting some really nice features in 5th wheels. That master bath I thought makes the unit more like a house. I have to give credit to Keystone. They brought back the Front Living Room, and now a large front Bath Room. They are thinking outside the box.

We saw that new Montana at our show last month. Very nice! Until recently I did not know they went to a 12" frame. Paying closer attention to all of the structures on units.
