Opinions wanted on the 2016 Georgetown XL 378

We have had several problems w our 2014 FR3 and are considering upgrading to the Georgetown XL 378. We like the looks, the ride and the quality but would like to hear from any owners out there what issues they have run into and if they would recommend the XL. Thanks.

As much as I like the FR3 it is limited in space.

The Georgetown XL 378TS is great for a larger living space and less in the bedroom and bathroom area.
That is what I noticed up front and we felt the living area was much more important.

So I can tell you about all the great things but I think you know already selecting the XL.

Will you have issues in the first year also. You bet you will. Just like every trailer, 5th wheel and motorhome on the market.

So why don't you tell us why you want to move on up to a Georgetown?

378xl is the best layout bar none. I have a 2012 and cannot find a better layout unless I spend an additional 150,000. I can put another 25,000 into my 378 and have all the quality upgraded. Problems you will have, you just have take good care of it. This forum is very helpful for that. Iggy is great for help. Good luck, by the way the paint on rig holds up well. Mine is always outside and paint is still new! Get one you'll love it!!

2x on the floorplan. We have a 2014 with 14000 miles. The only thing that I would like would be the over cab bunk for the grandkids, but it wasn't available in late 2013....

We love the open space when the slides are out. We added a 2nd ice maker to the freezer, it has come in handy. the only problems that we have had are
1, front end alignment needed.
2, clips broke on pull down shades, manufacture replaced them.
3, drivers side window doesn't fit right.

It has been fairly trouble free, we have over 10K miles, and once over the Alcan Hwy.

We have a 2016 XL378TS and love it. Only have about 5000 miles thus far but will be traveling to Arizona from SC on Oct 24.
Looked at both the 369 and 378 and the decision came down to, extra living space in the 378 or the bath and a half in the 369. Other then that, not much difference in the coaches. I will say this, for a mid-range priced coach, the GT XL is best in class for a gas powered coach. Love ours and good luck in your venture.

JBP. 6 speed is great. Of course as expected a little tight while breaking in the first 2500 miles. It is different for sure. But in this case, different is awesome.

You'll love the floor plan. Lotsofroom. We rarely need a half bath and since the bath in the 378 is midcoach it works fine. It's just the two of us and 3 small dogs, unless we bring one or two of the grandkids.
We have a 2013 model and no issue pulling our CR-V.
Happy RVing to you
