Just bought a 2015 Georgetown 337ts

Have our walk thru next week on a 2015 Georgetown xl 377ts, any input for things to watch for on this model would be appreciated. We have had 5th wheels for many years, but new to class A. Thanks

Congrats, we just bought the same coach last month. Not one single problem found during the PDI. We are taking our first trip this Friday so will be our first real test on the road. So far we are very happy. We also traded from a fifth wheel. I did change the oil even though the unit only had 300 miles on it since it sat on the dealers lot for over six months. I guess I could have ask the dealer to do it but I wanted to do it to give me a chance to look over the engine real good. Easy oil change. Good luck and hope you enjoy your new coach.

PS, we bought some throw rugs and runners because the ceramic tile floor gets really cold. I wish it had floor heat under the tile. Make sure they give you some small bottles of touch up paint and you should also get some extra tiles just in case one breaks. They should give you a small stack of them.

Good catch on the tile replacements. When looking for our GT (we have a 364 and not an XL), I often wondered why they don't use a hard wood laminate in place of tile. Wouldn't be able to use underfloor heating, but would be better insulated so the need may not be there. Durability may be an issue, but the tile floors are prone to cracking and popping loose. Wouldn't think weight would be an issue, but maybe. We also recently moved from a 5er to a class A for the first time and while a lot of the mechanics of the coach are the same, make sure you get a good understanding of the leveling system, res. fridge (if not previously owned), entertainment system, and generator. My wife videoed the walk thru as the guy was explaining certain differences from our 5er. Open cabinets, poke your head in, look for access panels, and ask questions, regardless of how silly they may seem. Then enjoy!

Congrats. I have a 337XL and love it. It is a 2012 model I bought new with 24k miles. It has never been in a shop. Expect to tighten up things, adjust things, etc. Check the oil in the generator before running it, mine did not have oil in it from the factory.
Good luck, I hope you like it as much as we do ours.

Congratulations! We have a 2014 and are enjoying it. We've only had a few minor issues so far. Search through the Georgetown forum and you will find a lot of useful information and learn of some things to watch for. Front end alignment has been an issue with premature tire wear and handling issues on some coaches. The water filter canisters have had problems, including blow outs that flood the compartment. Ours did and we replaced it with an exterior dual canister system. It was easy. Some have had upholstery wear problems, but maybe they've improved that. There are others. Have fun and travel safe!

Is yours a 337 or 377. Your thread title says 337 but the thread says 377. Either way nice coach.

Oops! Missed that. Nice catch.
