I just had my 2012 327 aligned today. McCarthy tire did it. They have about 40 stores located in the northeast and mid Atlantic. Cost me $125 and did both axles. I was in and out in less then 1 1/2 hr. Good job , good service and good price.

Since I just bought a new 364TS and have yet to take delivery (Monday), how much does the alignment help and why is the need? I'm assuming it comes as a "standard" frame alignment before the coach is assembled and now adjustments are made at the factory.

Because Ford doesn't know what body (how much weight) will be built on the bare chassis they DO NOT do a factory alignment.

Evidently a few (very few) are accidently built with an acceptable alignment.

Depending on where your dealer is your mh could have several 100 miles on it.
It might already have damaged tires.

If we ever get the chance to buy another new Forest River motor home an alignment will part of the PDI!

There are numerous threads that ask that same question but my experience, when I picked up my GT it pulled hard to the right. My main concern was tire wear & drivability. I took it into a Ford dealership and they had to align it as it was off.
Being you haven't picked your GT up yet, Id drive it and document up front if it pulls one way or another

i had mine done due to the front end floating every time i hit a bump. As it turned out the front end was out. they redid it and now it rides much better and handles alot better also. In fact i just received a reimbursement check from FR for 200.00. although my charges were 320 for the front end alignment
