Thanks,

The number I used to contact the factory was (574) 296 7700. I was asked the model ordered and the dealer. She agreed to look up the order and get back to me with a couple of times when they would be building the model I ordered. There was no guarantee that my unit would be in progress, but at least it would be a similar unit. Was yours a custom order, or one the dealer had in the works?

When you call the number above, ask for Craig Fawcett. He's very helpful with this information.

I'm on my second Georgetown. Had to wait for the first one because they set up the production line to run one model at a time and it took awhile until they switched to my model. The second one was already on the sales lot which was much easier.

Congrats on what sounds like a beautiful motorhome. I think the economy is improving. When I bought my camper it was a few years old almost three years ago. Nothing was moving in the worst of the economy. The RV factories were laying off big time. I noticed prices trickled up on the lots/ads this summer. I can sell mine three years later for more than I paid for it because of the upswing. Good deal! Keep people working.
Lynn and Mike

it's an easy "do it yourself" fix that makes a big difference.
Not a good idea,those holes are there for other applications other than motor homes.Yeah it will make it stiffer but not intended to be that way,thats why there where they are...

I respectfully disagree. I talked extensively with an engineering rep from the Ford Motorhome Chassis group and he told me that is exactly what those holes are to be used for. He said most people elect to change the hole position for a stiffer ride and better handling for motorhomes.

Harleydriven, this issue has been debated by hundreds if not more on irv2 forum where a guy named Jim first came across the extra holes. Sorry, you are well in the minority on that opinion.

To the OP, Congratulations on your Georgetown! The folks at Buffalo RV will take very good care of you. Service and Parts Manager Bill P. is just about the most stand up guy you'll meet in this business!! In addition, Bill's service writers, Debra and Mark will go to no end to help you. I dealt with the co-owner Mark Stroll upon delivery of my unit to straighten out a mis-understanding. He even went so far as to have my rig washed and waxed by an outside company as an additional thanks. They'll take good care of you for sure. Good Luck!
