With no fewer than 10 available floorplans, the Keystone Montana offers deluxe features and amenities in an abundance of living space. It’s no wonder that the Montana has been the #1 selling 5th wheel in North America for the past eight years. The new 2009 Hickory Edition is sure to carry on that tradition.
The Montana Hickory Edition, which replaced last year’s 10th Anniversary Edition, sports a newly-designed integrated front cap and frame that allows for the tightest turning radius in the industry with a short bed truck. Keystone’s Max-Turn technology allows a turning angle of up to 79°--a full 5° beyond the nearest competitor. This makes backing into even the tightest of campsites easy.
The Max-Turn frame-cap design not only offers unmatched turning capabilities but also uses a one-piece front rail that maximizes strength while increasing maneuverability. The aerodynamic front cap features a Hitch Vision™ mirror and LED hitch light for easier hitching day or night. A new radius rear cap with molded back-up lights wraps over the roof line for better air flow and greater strength.
The roof is designed with radiant technology insulation with an R-38 rating to keep the coach comfortable in almost any weather conditions; the seamless one-piece underbelly enclosure seals out moisture and protects plumbing.
The Montana Hickory Edition is designed for easy RV living. Automatic overhead entry lights turn on when the entry door is opened so you won’t have to fumble for a light switch. The Easy Store Sewer Boom conveniently stores and protects your sewer hose while eliminating the need for hooking, unhooking and storing a messy, wet hose and couplers. An enormous drop-frame pass-through storage compartment offers over 145 cubic feet of exterior storage with flush floor covered in no-stain Congoleum®.
One of the neatest features of the Montana Hickory Edition is the Gen II Easy Set Remote Control System. This second-generation multi-function remote system (the first generation debuted last year on the 10th Anniversary Edition) gives you fingertip remote control of a power awning, electric front and rear jacks, hydraulic slide-outs and safety lights, and eliminates switching between systems at the control panel on the side of coach.
The Hickory Edition boasts one of the most elegant, luxurious interiors you’ll find in a 5th wheel. Solid hickory cabinet doors, drawers, stiles, end panels, crown molding, desktops and slide-out fascia attest to the quality and attention to detail put into this coach. Cabinet stiles are stained on all four sides and matched in grain and color. Larger 5" cabinet pulls are easy to handle.
The Hickory Edition gives you more room to move around. The 6'5" main slide-outs give you 2" more headroom and 10% larger overhead cabinets. The bedroom slide-out is 6" deeper, offering more walk space around the bed and larger windows. A 4" taller bedroom wardrobe is also significantly deeper yet doesn’t compromise living space. A new radius roof profile improves aerodynamics and gives you more headroom in the bedroom and bathroom.
The camp cook will love the kitchen, which sports a larger 30" over-the-range microwave with integrated range hood and exterior exhaust fan; Dupont® Corian™ counter tops for beauty and durability; large double sink and double-door refrigerator. A free-standing dinette with chair seating has a unique swiveling table top for optimal convenience.
Other nice touches include a solid surface lavatory with molded sink in the bathroom, which also offers a roomy 36" garden tub with adjustable-height shower. An optional 19" LCD 12-volt TV in the bedroom mounts on an adjustable swing-out arm for optimal viewing, and can also be removed and mounted in the exterior pass-through storage compartment for patio viewing. A 12-gallon direct spark ignition gas/electric water heater supplies plenty of hot water for cooking and bathing. An 80-amp Xantrex™ XADC 12-volt power converter/charger supplies power for lights and other 12-volt accessories and keeps batteries charged. New graphics are applied with a state-of-the-art adhesive and carry an exclusive three-year warranty.
