We like the floor plan except it was backwards, the only window that looks out the passenger side is in the hallway or bedroom. I missed being able to look out over our campsite and not the neighbors.
The mattress is terrible like most of of them but it is standard queen and can easily be replace without going to RV mattress.
IF you have any questions on the model let me know.

Mine said 4150 and I had the dealer put in the contract that if it wasn't at least 3750 I could refuse the truck and get my deposit back. When the truck arrived from the other dealer the yellow door tag said 3744 and those 6 pounds got me a set of free bed steps LOL...

I was looking at a Keystone Montana High Country but the Crusader's seem to be a better price point for me, as I refuse to buy new again, a total waste of $. I would rather find a good quality used RV and do any mods or repairs myself. That being said I was looking at a 2014-2015 used one

Be prepared for a shock when you check your oil level the first time.... It will be BLACK The only time it has that nice honey color is when you pour it in. It will turn nasty black within a very short time.

I've got about 35K on my truck now and it has not used a teaspoon of oil but it sure looks awful. Tailpipe is sure nice and clean though.

You will enjoy your diesel. Lots of grunt. I can't remember anyone posting regrets for buying one.

Happy Camping

Not sure what the difference would be, mines a fx4. As far as oil being black shortly after changing, yes it will be, anything with egr is gonna do that, just the nature of the beast

Having an EGR has nothing to do with it. It's because it's diesel.

My pre EGR oil would run as clean as a gas engine.
