I suspect the new DRV is longer than the current Montana, but I'm not really familiar with Montana's lengths, based solely on the model number.

While Rolling Retreats might have still proved to be an excellent dealership (after all, Granbury isn't that far from Elk City, OK), Bennett's also has a good reputation.  Back in 2010 when we were finalizing our search and purchase of a Mobile Suites, we also visited Bennett's.  As you discovered, they are perhaps "almost" as knowledgeable as Alicia and Slade at Rolling Retreats.  (As a side note, back around 2012 or so, DRV used the Schwintek slide system on the bedroom slides and those units had lots of problems with staying aligned and working properly.  Slade at Rolling Retreats may be the only one I've heard of that found a solution for those problems.)

At any rate, I think you will enjoy your new unit, although all have a potential for some problems.

Congratulations.

Terry

You are correct, the new DRV will be about 2 feet longer than our current Montana. We certainly would have used RR if it were not for the fact they do not take trade-ins unless it is a DRV. As fulltimers the logistics to possibly sell or put out current RV on consignment are too cumbersome. 

We feel the two most actions that must occur is a good PDI by the dealer and a thorough PDI by the customer (us). Quite possibly most of the issues people have is because they do not take the time to vett out issues with the unit before they take delivery and make the dealer correct them. Yes there are a few dealers who really take the time to go over the units before the customers see them but there are much more just interested in selling a unit and moving on.

We feel Bennett's as the second oldest DRV dealer (by a few hours) will have our best interest at hand and so far have given us this impression.

Our new RV is scheduled to be delivered to our dealer early August. We will be volunteering at Button Bay SP in Vermont until September 3rd at which time we will head home to schedule our PDI. We are hopeful that we will be able to pick up our new home later in September after the items on the PDI are completed.
