Keystone makes 15 other models of travel trailer, and the Montana offers a choice of 10 floor plans. How do you know which of these is right for you? Read on.

Perhaps the most important aspect of buying a new Keystone RV is working with a reputable dealer. Every major city has at least one RV dealer that offers new Keystone travel trailers, including new Keystone Montana trailers, for sale at prices to suit every budget.

In fact, you can rely on the highly trained staff at your RV dealership to help you with all aspects of buying a new Keystone travel trailer or fifth wheel.

Before you start shopping for a new Keystone RV, you'll want to make sure a towed RV really is the right type for you. Recreational vehicles basically fall into two categories: motorized and towable. Keystone only makes towables. You can get information on all RV types simply by visiting RV dealers and looking at a lot of units. You can also log on to industry websites, such as, or follow these links in order to help decide which type of RV is right for you.

Visiting RV dealerships will not only help you get a good understanding of what's involved with owning a motorhome or travel trailer, but you'll also get a good idea of prices. Budget is a major consideration when it comes to buying a new RV. Experts recommend that you consider how often you'll be using your new RV when you create your budget. As a rule of thumb, the more often you'll use it, the more you should consider spending. It doesn't make sense to spend top dollar on an RV if you're only planning to use it once or twice a year. Because Keystone makes such a wide variety of travel trailers, you can be sure to find one that fits your budget.

When shopping, ask your sales person about the "total cost of ownership" for specific units. This figure will include items like sales tax, registration, rough insurance costs, expected routine maintenance costs, and so on. Also, don't forget to factor in the cost of storage if you're unable to store your new motorhome or travel trailer at home. If you're going to need to purchase a new tow vehicle, don't forget to factor that cost in to the total price of a travel trailer.

Once you've narrowed your choice to a handful of models, start looking at individual units with an eye for livability. Take time to move through the RV the way you would on a typical day. Does the floor plan accommodate your needs? Flop down on the bed. Is it comfortable? Can you close the door when you're inside the bathroom? Can you fit comfortably inside the shower?

You should be able to find a Keystone trailer that meets your personal livability test. As we said, a new Keystone Montana offers you a choice of 10 different floor plans. Keystone also is known for its quality, so if you'll be camping with a group of rambunctious kids, you'll be able to find a new Keystone RV with touches like metal drawer slides for durability.

Finally, you should always spend the night in your chosen RV before buying it. This is standard practice in the RV industry, so don't be shy about asking your dealer about doing so. After all, buying a new motorhome or travel trailer is a major investment, and you'll be spending a lot of time living in your new RV. Taking it for a "test sleep" before buying is good insurance.

Buying a new RV can be a wonderful experience. Just remember to work with a reputable dealer in your local area, do your own research on RV types, and perform a rigorous livability analysis on your top three models.
