We were also considering that rig. I found some good info on the Montana Owners Club forum. It ended up as our 2nd choice, mainly due to floorplan.

If you boondock at all, look at the size of the black tank. Very, very small for dry camping. My biggest turnoff for both the Montana and the Cougar, which I prefer.

A 50 gallon black tank is too small for dry camping? 93 gallons of gray storage? Maybe if you camp with a football team, but for most of us that is enough for two weeks.

My bad. Last time I looked, it was somewhere in the 30's. The Cougar HC's are all only 28 gallons; just too damn small for boondocking more than a couple days.

Amazing. I was just looking at the specs on a newly-released 9' truck camper and it's got a =larger= black tank than the Cougar High Countrys do. (shaking head)

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't recall the OP asking about a Cougar. [emoticon]

I was commenting on the High Country line, in general. I like the idea, but the execution has some weaknesses...IMO
