My main complaint is the quality of the cabinetry, which is what FR built. It looks pretty, but beneath the skin, most of the the "oak" is actually hemlock with a stick-on veneer.

Other than those issues, we like our rig. We didn't get it until late June the first year, so we missed out on the start of the season.

Bottom line - don't expect Holiday Rambler quality at the Georgetown price, but they're not bad value if you look after them and keep them a while.
Great points about pretty to look at.... I don't think any are really made for day in, day out abuse. Treated delicately they hopefully will give many years of fun.
I didn't know hemlock was used for cabinets. I only thought it was an ancient poison. See what I learned from a Forest River forum.

We are anxiously planning a few trips for Sept to the eastern seaboard and realize that anything after October has to remain in Florida due to weather concerns.
