Hi gang,

Just traded my Montana 5th wheel for a DP. I think as you get older an MH becomes more convient than trailers. We have had pickup campers, TTs, 5th wheels and now an MH. It's an older model in great condition. All set up for my toad. Just about ready for our first trip.

Thought I better join more forums since I will probably need advice.

Welcome Greystroke!

We started with a MH and it was for two reasons. We have cats and they would go nuts in the car and a small bladder in their Mom!

Hope you enjoy your new-to-you toy!

Jim

Thanks Jim and Ken,

Thats right about the toy. It sets right out in the yard so I am constantly playing with it trying to learn about the XC chassis. If anybody wants to look my 98 Endeavor is located here.

Welcome Tom & Betty, and Cocoa.
I relinquished a 2008 Montana 3400RL 1 year ago this month. It is so nice to arrive at a CG and push 3 buttons. One for the levelers and one for each of the slides. If I don't want to do anything else I don't have to and the AC has been running for at least 30 minutes before we arrive. So I know what you mean. It is a lot more convenient with a MH.

Thanks Wizard, let the adventurer begin.



Wayne,

I still have a desire for that 2010 3400 but after getting stuck this year in the Kansas/Ok blizzard, the wife said no more trailers.

But I think now she is right. I have a new toy to work on and it will be nice to pull into a campsite ready to camp and hookup at my leisure after my first cup of coffee.

Now I need to decide what ERS to use. I am leaning to Coach Net. Have to decide this next month before my first trip in Sept.

I had Coach Net with my 3400RL, and I continued with the MH. I used it once when towing the 3400. The fuel injector module went out in my brother's driveway in Massachusetts. I called Coach Net and they said they would have some one there within 45 minutes. I got a call back from the wrecker company, and a call back from Coach Net asking if I had been contacted, and within 45 minuts the wrecker was there.

Others have used different ERS companies and they are probably just as good, but I'm satisfied with Coach Net.

My wife still wants the 3400RL kitchen and counter space. I'm just not going to let her have it (yeah! right!)

Wayne,

I didn't have an ERS with the Montana since USAA provided coverage with the insurance but with the MH it is different because you don't carry a spare tire. Specialized service is needed.

Looked at a lot of MHs including the Destination. I loved the coach and the price but thought I better stick with a cheaper unit. After all it will only be used a few times a year.

So thanks for the info about Coach Net. Will probably sign up next week.

Now the the task at hand is the RV port. The contractor is coming monday to install a 20 x 41 RV port. No more exposure to UV and tree droppings just while sitting by the side of the house. I was going to do this for a new Montana or MH any way. Will expand Picasa album to include pictures of the RV port.
