Keystone Releases New Floorplan for Montana High Country

Wed May 3, 2017

149382546143052.jpgKeystone RV Company has released the new floorplan for the Montana High Country 380TH fifth wheel, with a rear storage garage that can fit a motorcycle, golf cart, bicycles or anything else big or bulky. With the new design, the toys can stay safe and secure while in transit.

The front living room provides loads of seating with opposed sofas (which also convert to beds). In addition, the theater seats positioned directly across from the HDTV and fireplace make for perfect viewing and relaxing. This front living room layout is one of Keystone's most popular while providing additional sleeping, according to a press release.

The kitchen in the 380/381TH is accented by all the high end stainless steel appliances you would expect (your choice of RV gas/electric refrigerator or residential refrigerator) plus a hutch with lighted surface.

The side bath includes a spacious 48 by 30-inch shower with access through Montana’s exclusive pivot-hinge door which doesn’t block access through the side hallway.

While the features described above can be found in other Montana High Country floorplans, it’s the rear bedroom that makes the 380TH a one-of-a-kind. In transport mode with tall toys stored in the basement garage, the bed is raised to the “top” position by means of a powered lift system. When the RVer arrives at their campsite, they simply remove the tall toys, push the button and the bed is lowered into the sleep-mode position. The garage can accommodate up to 1,500 pounds of cargo, with six tie downs in the floor and diamond plate to protect the walls.

Keystone also has released a video showing how the rear bedroom is set up. To watch this video, click on the link below, which will take you to the RV News Video Library.
