We're not fulltimers, but we've had multiple 5th wheels and a travel trailer in the past and about 10 months ago purchased a Georgetown 351ds. Our kids are in college but still travel with us summers and holidays, so we opted for the bunks. We might change that later, not sure. Storage outside is more than enough for us and one change I'm for sure I would never change...ours now has a residential fridge. It's awesome. No more tiny spaces, water and ice through the door as well. We usually go for a month at a time over the summer and space is fine for the four of us and 3 cats.

Good Luck,

We looked at the FR3 and 378xl. From past 5th wheel experience, the FR3 TV location was a big drawback for us. We went for the 378XL. After 3 5th wheels over the years, we finally figured out all the wants vs needs to fit us. They were: TV location, bathroom/shower configuration, kitchen/ counter top space, closet / storage space, black and grey tank capacity, fresh water capacity, road handling, and cost. The FR3 was much cheaper to buy, but we thought this would be out last unit. We opted for the 378XL.

While we didn't test drive a lot of different MHs, I was pleasantly surprised at how much more quiet our Georgetown is than what I was expecting.

We have been full timing in our 2012 378XL since purchased new and there is enough room for the 2 of us and storage is fine. The layout and the open living room with slide out is great and location of TV and such are good. Would recommend this MH to anybody. Yes we have had a few issues as all RV's do but FR has been great to work with. My only advise is make sure you have a great dealer, they can make or break your experience.

2x on the floorplan of the 378 for full time. My DW priorities were opposing slides, washer\dryer and residential fridge. Only option I would have liked was not avail in 2014 - the big bunk over the cab for the grand kids.
