It won't fit under the tree, so...

Just pulled the trigger on a 2018 1/2 Legacy 38RE, and went through the inspection yesterday at the dealer. Only found six relatively minor items; two were related to the Furrion gas stove and oven. One burner gas valve would not push down far enough to admit gas flow; probably the same issue with the oven since we never were able to light the pilot (could not smell any gas going to the oven).

Since it won't fit underneath our tree, we decided to leave it at the dealer until the snows stops in the spring (main reason is that we have to sell our SOB to make room for the 38RE). So, if any of your friends need a nice 39 foot Montana fifth wheel Hickory Edition, PM me and I will send the details.

Congratulations, that's what I call an appropriate Christmas present

I'm definitely not interested in a Montana

Merry Christmas and Congratulations! Quick Question?

We have close friends who swear by their Montana 5'er. We're shopping now and were going down that same path. We'd sure like to know from a "verified buyer" what significant differences made you buy the Riverstone over the Montana. It would be very instructive to us. Thanks again! Safe travels.

Nothing wrong with the Montana, it is the #1 selling 5th wheel trailer in North America for a reason.
We had a Montana many years ago, it was a fine trailer with absolutely no problems but for full time living the RiverStone offers significantly more insulation, better/heavier axles and suspension out of the gate - the whole construction is more solid. The difference in dry weight alone is 2000 lbs to 3000 lbs on comparable units.

Have you looked at the differences between the two brands?

Just look at the pics and features and you'll see that the Riverstone is a much higher level trailer, than the Montana. But they are much more expensive.

And I'm a Montana fan. If we move to a 5th wheel, we love the High Country line.
