My wife and I really hope it helps with the overall ride of the coach. She says it rocks way too much in the back when I'm driving.
Good for you.. sounds like a thoughtful decision. Pls. keep us posted on the RESULTS off your upgrades. I'm particularly interested on the effect of the rear sway bar. I did the steering stabilizer and it was a minor but appreciated improvement. Have been thinking about the sway bar after our x-country trip and a few oscillating experiences.

Sirozz. For what it's worth, I think that financially you are doing the right thing unless you have money to burn. I traded up on a year and a half old (to me) class c to my Berk. I took a pretty big hit on paper, but the deal got me the numbers that I wanted. With an additional down payment along with trade equity, I had equity in the new coach going out the door. But you never want to be upside down in one of these babies since you are probably losing 10k+ per year in depreciation. Enjoy your Georgetown for a couple of years and if your still interested in moving up, the hit shouldn't be so bad. The Georgetown is a great coach! Please still keep active on the forum and have fun.

Update: we picked up the mh today after having our local dealer install front and rear sway bars and steering damper. I took around town and even on the highway. What a huge difference. I didn't even strap the fridge doors and there was no need to. I spent about $2600 on the road master gear And labor and i thinks it was worth every penny. The wife is also a lot happier with the drive and noise. We also got rid of the annoying front squeaks we had noticed last few months.
