Whew, that was a long day!

I cut the grass, emptied all basement storage bins, rinsed out the tanks and then went through the walk through and then spent 2 hours moving everything from the Endeavor to the Montana.

It rained so I didn’t take pictures, if they haven’t touched the Endeavor I’ll take pictures of it since I forgot the toilet paper there.

Here are some pictures of the rig in place, Jeff at Collier did a fantastic job of backing her in.

One big disappointment, there is no remote control for the slides and jacks. Apparently at some point earlier this year they decided to stop including it. Disappointed smile Guess who didn’t know, EVERYBODY. I was pissed, last years model that we turned down comes with it, it’s 10k less and you can operate all the slides and jacks from outside.

Keystone says on their website all Montana’s come with it, so I’m contacting them Friday to tell them what I think of this. Here are some pictures, I am still working on the fence, sewer and water connections so it will have to do as it is until tomorrow or Friday.

Looks great Erik. If we get over there this year we'll have to check it out. So far all we've done is work on our house to put it on the market. We bought a condo in May with the intention of renting it out and now we think we are going to move into it. We're working towards part timing in the rv and don't want to have to worry about outside maintenance. I think you two made a great choice and it's going to be a great place to relax and enjoy your weekends.

Steinar - Yeah well, the template can wait for when I have time to get to it.

As for the remote, I'm very pissed at that considering how much we talked about it pre-delivery. I am going to contact Montana and tell them it's one reason I chose Montana over the Redwood.

Sam and Donna, Sue and Doug - Thanks! Our first night has been enjoyable and very very comfortable.

Steve - Thanks! We are going to start saving for a Ford F250 diesel probably a dually considering the fiver weighs 13,000lbs.

Looks awesome and looks like it fits better in the site than the Endeavor did :).

Bruce - The system flagged you as spam, sorry about that!

Congrats on the condo purchase! I hope the house sale goes well and I hope you're able to part time soon! THat would be fantastic!
