5th wheel to 2012 Georgetown XL 378TS

Well all I can say is the papers are signed and will pickup on Monday 4/19/12.
I have been around the rig for almost 2 days and took it for a drive and I was very happy. It will be a big change from a PU and 5th wheel.

It has almost all options.
Fireplace, 40"TV, washer/dryer, full size 4 door refrigerator with ice, dual pane windows, artic pack, (2) AC, Diamond shield in front, the new 4 layers of clear coat. The only thing we don' have is the convection oven
Here is the link to dealer if you want to see pictures. LINK

McMahon RV in Mesa AZ is a good dealer. I actually picked up the rig for less than $100,000 with MSRP of $140,000. Cliff the sales manager did a great job and added/installed a vented washer dryer combo for half the cost and was only $750 installed.

So what do I need to know about this rig?

exact model we were looking at, the best price from rv direct was 109,000 so I think you did great! We moved up from a 36' 5th wheel to a 36' super c, much easier than driving the 5th wheel, but I miss all the room.

Wow Iggy, that is a beautiful rig, congrats on the purchase. It sounds like you got a great deal on it. What brought on the purchase of a motorhome? I thought you were very happy with the fifth wheel. I guess your income tax refund was really BIG this year.

We got the midnight color. They had one like yours but my DW didn't like the condition inside. The one we got is called midnight color. Oh well.
We will be in Yellowston in the Grizzly Campground Sunday July - the 5th

Sorry to shock you my friend but after almost 42 years with my DW I know when to say yes and when to say no. YES DEAR. I will get a motorhome.
