Just bought a new 2016 Georgetown XK 352QS

After over a year of research in all type of Class A to Class C, Diesel Pusher to Gasser, I came to the conclusion that the Gasser should fit us better as far as price point and quality. There are many factors were considered and the final result still pointed us to the Gas Coach.

Having that said, we are now the proud owner of the 2016 Georgetown XL 352QS, MHSRV is prepping the RV now to get ready for PDI on this coming Friday July 22nd. This is our first ever RV and hoped that we will have tonnes of good time traveling and explore the USA.

In the past 5 years, we have been tent camping and travel all over the US. We had put in over 150,000 miles in 5 years without the RV, we were always wished that we could have the RV which would make life more enjoyable, and the time has come.

Any advice to this new RV owner would really be appreciated.

Great!

How was your coach? Did you have lot of luck with it? Any mod to the coach that I should think about?

Thanks for your comment.

We Love it. a couple of mods that will likely be a must.....Headphones for the bunk TV's you can get them in pairs on amazon I bought 2 sets (4 total) So each TV could have 2 headsets each and you will need 2 transmitters of curse, just in case we ever had more than 2 kids wanting to watch TV.

I added an inverter to power the outlets without the generator
Georgetown Inverter Install


I added a second screen for the backup/side marker cameras because looking at the one in the dash was a bit hard while driving
Back up Camera screen

Thanks for your advice. My original thought was very well in line with you, especially adding more battery and inverter so I could have 110 power without using the generator.

The question that I have for you is: Do you ADD additional 110volts plugs for the inverter or you use transfer switch to deliver 110 power to all of the existing plugs?

Thanks and have a wonderful day.

Congrats and good luck

We have a 2014 have had it almost 2 yrs. it's the black diamond series. It's been in the shop more than out. In the shop now for front a/c replacement. Best ice maker you ever seen. Flooring replaced. Water lines kept plugging with sedaments from water heater they told us it was our fault. The adnod rod was eaten up when it was purchased. How clever. Wasn't our fault. Side camera fell out on the way home after taking delivery. I could go on and on. This is our 2nd Forest river home within 3 years. No more for us. Dealer service don't want to help us anymore and don't get support from Forest river We call her the Lemon on wheels and take her down the road and hope she continues to do good for us. After you pay thousands for these homes.

Do your PDI before you sign any paperwork. If you think you are being flim flamed or manipulated in any way, you probably are! I made the mistake of signing first and I found out that they were just then prepping it after having 4 weeks to complete the prep. On top of that the prep was in no way worth the 800 bucks they charged. I have a few problems the first week and they all turned out to be mis-information during the PDI. It was not this dealer though so hopefully you will have a better experience.
