After having a Keyless Door Lock on our previous RV, we were sad to discover that this was not an option on our new trailer. You may not think this is much of a necessity, but until you have one you won’t know how much of a convenience it really is. We all need to think about security a bit more these days.

Keep it cool! After we finished deciding on the model of Fifth Wheel that we wanted to purchase, we had to decide on what type of refrigerator to get with it. I had done some research in advance to help us decide which way to go. Should we get a residential refrigerator or go with the common 2-way/3-way RV type refrigerator?

After spending all of 2017 trying to decide on which RV to replace our Jayco with, we finally settled on the NEW 2018 Keystone Montana 3120RL. I will try and provide you with some of the decisions we had to make that got us to this point. Keep in mind these are things that mattered most to us and “your mileage may vary”. To the best of my knowledge, these factors were true last year. However, in the ever-changing competing RV marking, things could be a bit different by the …
