Exciting, isn't it !! !! I was floored the first tie I towed with discs back on my 08 KZ fifth Wheel...


I had no idea. The fifth wheel seems to be able to stop the truck. I set the truck to the heavy electric hydraulic setting ,and had the gain at about 8 on heavy electric for my old Montana. I had to set the gain down to 4. I would of locked up those disc brakes pretty easily set at 8. Im pretty sure they will lock up anyway on a panic stop set at 4 .

Thanks, its a bit of an upgrade from our old 2008 Montana fifth wheel. This has the level up, better suspension supposedly [emoticon] It sure tows well, I guess thats all that counts. Disc brakes , I assume not DISK, as some refer too [emoticon] The larger double door fridge. The side bathroom ,with everything in the one room, with two doors one too the bedroom, and one to the hallway, thats pretty nice . 50" TV, probably a 40" in the bedroom, overall just a nicer fifth wheel . Lost a closest near the entry door, that we will have to get used too not having .Pullout desk under the TV instead of a built in one on the Montana, can still have a place to tie fly's , just not as convenient . The nicest thing my wife likes is the stand alone island that you can walk around , the Montana did not have that

We really had no intentions of getting a new one ,the old Montana was good enough for what we do in traveling , but could not pass up the deal . I was surprised the Montana sold so quick, it was in pretty good shape for going on 13 years old. But people are pretty distracted right now .

Man! Those kits are expensive. I would love to put them on my fifthwheel, but at $1,300, I'll pass for now.

Definitely not cheap. All I can say is , if you are talking about the suspension . I can only go by what the previous owner told me, being a friend I trust what he said. He is a full timer , tows a lot of miles. . He told me the improvement was worth it to him, the disc brakes ,those speak for themselves . Obviously I never towed his fifth wheel with the OE suspension ,so as said I can only go by what he said. Short of putting on IS suspension , MorRyde , Comfort ride or similar are probably the best to upgrade too .
