forest river georgetown 328TS axle loads

We are looking at a Forest River Georgetown 328TS. After reading about problems with some other brands I wondered if anyone has the actual weight on the axles of one. I am also looking for the unladen weight if anyone has it. Thanks for any help.

I have a 2015 328TS Georgetown and I don't know the weight but it seems like the weight is alittle heavy for the tires and chassis. I plan on weighing mine this week. Also we have had a lot of warranty issues with ours and just got it back after spending 4 months in the shop waiting on parts and for Forrest river to approve the repairs. I would not buy another Forest river product. We are looking at the Winnebago vista lx at this time and hope to trade ours in. Lots of luck and check it over real close before signing.

Thanks. It would be a help to everyone if you post what you find when you get weighed.

We just purchased a 2014 leftover 328 in August. Love the Coach. Other than a few cosmetic (minor) issues and a noise at low speeds in suspension (turn left in a gas station).

Great Coach. Three trips including Myrtle Beach. Here's some axle info.

Nice looking coach. We have a 2015 328 TS with a popping noise in the front side when turning left. So far no one has figured out what the noise is. FR told us that Ford left the left front shock bolt loose. Might want to check it. Did u get the booth dinette or table and chairs. Thanks

Thanks. I haven't taken her to the Ford Dealer yet. I'll do that when we get her out of winter storage in April.

Interesting. I checked it over but did not look at the shock mount. I was worried the whole way to Myrtle Beach & back. 1400 mile round trip.

Thanks again. Enjoy your new Coach!!

Have you had the ball joints checked. That sound is characteristic of a ball joint problem

We haven't taken her to the Ford Dealer yet. Right now our GT is tucked away in storage (indoor).

We'll have it looked at in April. Thanks for the heads up.
