2016 377TS - May Pull The Trigger

Hey Gang..

We just got back from the Cleveland RV Show. Let us tell you the Georgetown line was looking great. We are seriously considering pulling the trigger on a 2016 377 TS. I'm sure we may take a hit on our 328TSF, but we really love the floor plan and amenities on this model. We think it will fit our retirement lifestyle a little better than our current coach.

What's your thoughts on this model.

Many Thanks..

We just bought the sane model last month. We love the floor plan for just the wife and me but will also allow grandchildren to come along on occasion. We went from. A 43 foot fifth wheel and like this unit better. Will make our first trip the end of this month to do a shakedown trip. So far not one single thing wrong and we have tried all the systems. These are beautiful coaches with a great paint job.

I see you also have a jeep rubicon. We have a 2015 rubicon hard rock that we have set up for towing using the Ready Brake Elite tow bar with built in surge brake hooked to a blue Ox tow plate made for the Rubicon.

Thanks for sharing your love for your Coach. We love our 328tsf, but the 377TS XL is so much nicer. We still have a few years till retirement, but we are planning.

Yes, we are a Jeep family and at one time we had 5 between all of us. My Rubic on is a 2013 with a Rough Country 2.5" lift, 33's on Dick Cepek Torque Style Wheels. We belong to a Jeep club and have done a little wheeling. Don't want to brake my Rubi since I'll be towing her behind our Coach.

Thanks again..

Good looking coach....just for your negotiation knowledge base....you can get one at MHSRV with the optional drop down bunk for less than $129k...and you can get the actual quote on line in about 5 minutes. Don't know what your local one has but here is the mfr. "window sheet" on the one they have. That's 21% off....& I'm betting you could get it for $119 which is 27% off or less. I'd offer $115 & see where it goes.

Not suggesting that you buy there...just that it helps to know what you could get it for when talking locally. And...MHSRV has a good reputation if you decide that the local guy wants too much.

We have a 2014 377XL and like it a lot. Not sure what changes have been made since then.

Actually, the unit at the show was $119k with most of the options including full body paint. The only option on the model we did not like is the drop down bunk. No grand kids yet, but I don't think it's a deciding factor since the sofa and dinette goes into a place to sleep.

We really, really love this unit, but will choose a different interior. It was white and long term I think we want to go a shade darker.

Thanks for the info you shared...

I don't think the 2 are related. I have no noises related to the CHF. I did the CHF about 3 to 4 years ago, and have put about 30 to 40 k on since then.

We took delivery on a 378 XL 2016 in July. It is really impressive
And only had very minor problems which have all been taken care of by the dealer. Have put on 7000 miles and love it. We have the overhead bunk up front and it is convenient for grand kids. Were. able to negotiate down to 117,500 from an original price of 120.000 ask
