Question 2014 Georgetown XL

Originally we were interested in the 2014 Georgetown 335 but now the Georgetown XL might be a better fit for us.

We will be part timing for about one year then retiring into the RV.

We will put alot of miles on it.

How do you like your Georgetown XL? Are you fulltiming or part timing?

Cost & any information about Extended Warranties? Insurance? satellite dishes? tow package?

You need to add a model number to the XL to get any responses.

"XL" just means that the unit has the upgrades included.

i just bought a '14 350TS yesterday; take delivery 5/29/14. i narrowed my moho search to both the georgetown 351DS and the XL 350TS. my feeling is that for the better ride/handling, heavier chassis, roomier interior, nicer components and more storage/capacities it was well worth the $$$ stepping up to the XL line.

we are gonna use it a good bit; at least 3-4 months a year. if i was full timing, my decision would easily have been the XL over the regular line, IMHO. my shakedown run will be the trip from TX back up to CT over the 30th and 31st. i can give more details on that trip when i get back. i drove both extensively before i pulled the trigger. it was quite windy in TX yesterday, and the handling of the XL on the 24K chassis shone through over the 20.5K chassis on the base line. this is my first moho after having 5'ers and TT's for 22 yrs. i will get the jeep set up to tow at a local RV repair place; that is straightforward, though.

We have the 378 XL and love it, we use it alot and plan to retire in about 3 yrs and will use it for months at a time. The living room has the most space of all the Georgetown floor plans. Good storage.

We bought a 2013 378XL we love the living room space with the two slides on each side. Only thing we did not like there is not enough room in the bedroom with the King size bed, but we will make due. we love the FR product, prior to having this we at a 2000 Adventure Winabago. we use this off and on last year and will this year, next year planning to retire and use it to see the country. It rides great with the 22.5" tires. Also this FR forum has the best information and very helpful owners and very knowledgeable people that can help you.

Did you retrofit a King bed? Dealer installed? All brochures show queen w/no king option.

Lots of living space. A little small bathroom area but nice shower.
The 378TS XL is a great size for longer trips and stays.
Everyone who visits says one word when they enter... WOW! So much room.
Headroom is great for taller people and makes room much larger and not cramped. XL has double paned windows, extra stuff all around compared tot he basic Georgetown, Great exterior storage doors and locks and much more room below.
Electric fire place a plus, If you can get vinyl floor do it. I have bedroom and living room carpet and can't stand it as it is always needs vacuuming.

We have had our 378 for 2 year this past April and I have 23,000 milesbvon it and plan another 10,000 plus this year.
