Both are built on drop Z frames, offering massive storage in the front and rear. While both interiors are sophisticated, Montana's 2024 design is tonal and layered, Alpine punches it up with patterns and bespoke finishes.

Montana offers top-of-the-line options, including independent suspension, disc brakes, and our most advanced SolarFlex Outlast Extreme 1320i-L solar energy package.

Our Favorite 2024s for:


Fully Equipped Luxury Coaches w/ Bunkhouse Options

Both of these product lines include the full-profile, luxury DNA of their big brothers, but in slightly smaller footprints. Both Montana High Country and Alpine Avalanche Edition have bunkhouse options that are perfect for families. Like Montana and Alpine, Montana High Country and Alpine Avalanche Edition both have four-season living packages for comfort all year round. Both brands offer luxury finishes like hardwood cabinetry and solid surface countertops to make it feel more like home. One of the main differences between the two brands is the leveling systems, Montana High Country has Ground Control® 4 point electric auto-leveling while Alpine Avalanche Edition uses Lippert's one touch hydraulic 6 point auto-leveling system. Alpine Avalanche Edition is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the details while Montana High Country has buttoned up the luxury finishes.
