    How long should a Montana last

    I can see where this may be a tricky question, but what is the average lifespan of a Montana?I spoke with the dealer but they are really there to sell. And I have seen so many different numbers on web sites. Which brings me to my question....when is it time to retire the trailer on average? Without any Act of God or accident happening to it with proper maintenance and care how long do I have, or best guess?

    Twenty years is a good guess

      Tend to agree ,most RVs should go 20 yes or so ,barring unforseen accidents,etc. The rest depends on the owner use, good maintenance, caring, and some self reliance to work on it as needed.

        That's good to know. I was figuring 12-15 years tops.

          I don't think I'm going to keep my Montana lone enough to find out. I let to get a new one every 5-6 years.

              All in how well you take care of them. I have a 2012 3582RL that was a one owner when I bought it last month and the previous owner took good care of it and it looks beyyer than 2014 - 2017's we looked at.

                  I think it was more like GOD steered me to it. Was looking for 6 months and not even looking at that location, just happened by accident. Has everything that was on our wish list and more. And bought it for WAY less than book.

                    I think 20 years may be right. But the last 10 will involve quite a bit of maintenance repairs, etc. in my opinion. If you are young enough to still do your own work, then no problem.
