Good Day:

Has anyone replaced the Dining Table on a Georgetown 378XL? The factory table seems fairly unstable and am hoping to do some modifications like a Credenza with a slide out extension table. Does any have any leads on the bracket or hardward needed for such a remodel?

Thanks and hope to hear back,

Uncle Al

Totally agree with you Iggy. We have the 012 Model 360 and spent most of last summer in it. These coaches give you a lot of bang for the buck. Over on the Good Sam forums the Diesel Pusher crown turns their noses up at gassers, but I like to poke a stick in their eye buy reminding them how much more they had to pay!

I have met many new friends on this trip with diesel pushers who approcahed me and asked questions. They all wanted to know about the Georgetown.
I tell them about the Ford chassis, V-10 and drive train is wonderful.
I can easily run the speed limit and still get reasonable mileage. 7 to 8 mpg.
One guy told me tat he had a 400 hp diesel and I asked what he got and told me 4 to 5 mpg. He was looking at finding a gas rig because it cost him too much in fuel and additive as well as monthly payments.
He liked the price range the Georgtownes were.

One guy told me that his would be worth more when he sells it.
I laughed and said mine was $200,000 cheaper than his and more economical to drive and yes mine will be worth less when I sell because I have less invested in it up front. He didn't say much after that.

Well I'm home and started my list of things to do on my Georgetown before my next trip which will be in mid March.

It was a great 6,000 mile trip with no problems and I was running 70 -75 miles per hour the past two days getting home. This thing drove like a top... Yes it was mostly in the flats of Texas, Mexico and Arizona.

We been in Winter Haven Florida since January 7th and with the exception of two days it has been wonderful. Try to stay warm, at least we aren't in the Northeast.

Already missing Florida and we have been home one night. Rain and cold here in Arizona and they expect snow down to 3,500 ft today.
High today was 48 degrees and spend the day servicing the Georgetown.
Done the oil and filter change as well as servicing the batteries and did a little cleaning inside. Tightened a few screws and lubes the steps.
That's enough for today and I will finish tomorrow.

IGGY; your 1st pic shows a red FIAT 500 in front of the MH. Is that yours and if so do you flat tow it, and what mods did you have to do to flat tow it. Thanks

Yes it is my Fiat 500, 5 speed standard transmisssion.
Just hook it up and place in neutral and pull on all 4 wheels.
During our trip many folks stopped by to take a look and ask questions.
Pulls like nothing is there.
I bought the tow plate myself and installed it in about an hour.
Basic hand tools and easy to pull the front plastic off and back on.
You remove the Fiats front bumper metal bracket and install the Roadmaster plate in the exact same holes.
