First, welcome to the Georgetown Forum.

As others have posted, it is quite common to have a motorhome chassis that is a year or two earlier than the motorhome model year. As the motorhome continues to age, the difference in the manufacturing dates will be of even less concern. Don't think of yourself as stupid, it sounds like you got a good price on a low mileage used motorhome. The original owner took a huge depreciation hit purchasing it brand new, and then had to deal with all the little problems that turn up in the first year. I did the same as you in purchasing a 2010 Georgetown (built on a 2009 chassis) in 2012.

Check over everything carefully at the dealer before taking delivery, and have any problems noted to be fixed. Here is a pre-delivery checklist you can use: RV Inspection Checklist

Bad times they were!!!!!!

Not unlike a lot of others..........we have a 2010 model year Georgetown, but because of the economic downturn we were just coming out of (no one wants to say recession or worse) our rig was built on a 2008 model year Ford chassis.

The Ford has it's own VIN # and the Georgetown has it's own VIN #.

The changes between Ford chassis of 2008 and 2010 were minimal......just a few more information screens on the dash....MPG, avg speed etc. Same V10 engine and 5 speed tranny. It's all good.

Cornelius thanks for the check list. We are going tomorrow to do a partial wak-thru, test drive and sign papers on a 2014 Georgetown XL 378. They are doing some modificaitons for us, if all goes well we will be doing a final walk-thru next Friday. Then the fun begins with transferring all our stuff from the 5th wheel to the GT.
