We went to the dealer to look at the 3900FB, the 3825RL, 3725RL and the 3625RL, the 3725RL and 3625 were just there for comparison. Or so we thought… we spent a lot of time going over the rigs.
The shower in the 3900FB felt like it was made of something just a tad thicker than paper, it was very weak and over all this monster didn’t impress us like we thought it would. The 3825RL was next but who ever designed the bathroom, clearly wasn’t going to use it or was maybe 5ft tall, I could not fit standing in front of the toilet without my rear end hitting the sink…
Wait, I’m getting ahead, the first rig we looked at was inside, it was the 3625RL and it was very nice except for the furniture and the living room slide was too deep, it would hit the power pole at our site and during negotiations they pushed this rig hard, real hard. While we liked this rig, we would have been settling if we chose it, I told them if this was the only rig we could fit into the numbers we would be walking and no sale. The 3900FB and 3725RL were within $1,000 of each other but we were about $4,000 over budget.
I explained we would not spend more than we told them we would spend, not one penny more. The owner took the deal from the finance manager and spoke to his partner and 10 minutes later told the finance manager he didn’t like it (bullshit, he got a sale, he loved it and I know it) but he would sell us the 3725RL for the exact amount we budgeted making everybody involved happy. Come on guys, I know how this game is played, if he wasn’t making a number in profit he was comfortable with he wouldn’t have made the deal.
I’m a capitalist, you sell something you’re entitled to a good profit, but I’m entitled to make sure it swings in my favor if I can. Going by what we have seen at other dealers we got a good deal so enough of the explanation, here is our new Montana 3725RL! We pick it up this coming Wednesday!
Holy crow, look at the length of that bedroom slide!
Forgive the picture quality, it was storming and fogging up the camera. Here is the living room, two awesome recliners and a full queen bed built into an awesome leather couch.
Lots of counter space, huge refrigerator and pantry.
In this hallway is a very large closet that is bigger than my closet at home or can fit a full sized washer and dryer.
There are a lot more pictures but I’m at the campground, I’ll be lucky if these post. Whew, so that’s over, now for the PDI and delivery process and possibly modifying the deck because the door to the new rig may line up with the railing…. we’ll deal with that after the rain stops and we can do some measuring.
Have a great weekend folks, we’re tired and going to watch a movie and relax…
