Built using Helium Technology, the Montana High Country uses advanced materials and manufacturing technology to significantly reduce weight while maintaining plenty of features, comforts and luxury. Saving you 1,300 to 2,500 pounds compared to typically equipped fifth wheels, the Montana High Country helps reduce wear and tear on your tow vehicle, as well as improve fuel economy and maximize the towability of your 3/4-ton truck.

A radius rear fibreglass cap not only looks good, but proves functional as well, as it protects the coach and improves aerodynamics. The Gen II EasySet wireless remote control allows you to operate the power landing jacks, rear stabilizer jacks, electric awning, slide-out rooms and exterior lights all with just the push of a button. Hitching this fifth wheel to your truck is a one-person job, thanks to its HitchVision system. Designed with Max-Turn Technology, the integrated frame and front cap design give owners a great short bed truck to fifth wheel angle. Simply put, it means that turning corners and backing into campsites is much easier. A cool and sleek exterior design is further highlighted by a smoke grey high-gloss with dynamic, metallic exterior graphics.

Equipped with premium Goodyear E-range radial tires and aluminum wheels, the High Country goes the distance. Its fully insulated and heated storage area, enclosed underbelly and Glacier Package with R-21 insulation in the floor allow you to use this fifth wheel throughout the year. For all your packing needs, its pass-thru storage area is quite large, giving you more than 140 square feet of space. Other exterior features include Equa Flex upgraded suspension system, undermount spare tire and carrier, outside shower with quick connect hose, outside speakers, deep tint safety glass windows, Dexter E-Z Lube axles with eight lug wheels and enclosed convenience center, while popular options include dual pane windows and a slide awning package.

For a little down time, sit a spell and relax in the living area. The desk and entertainment center with an optional fireplace makes this fifth wheel feel just like home.
