Picked up 378

We got home last night with our new Georgetown 378 and are very excited. We live in Georgia and drove to Lazy Days in Tampa Fri they had it set up in their delivery campground and did a great walk thru with us, we spent the weekend as they installed the tow bar on Saturday. They also provide free breakfast and lunch each day to their campers. This is a great place to purchase an RV. We did not notice but the walk thru person noticed the ceiling bubbled in a couple spots they contacted FR and we will go back at a later date to have ceiling panels replaced, I ask if it was necessary as it is hardly noticeable but they recommend it as it is under warranty, so we make a trip back this spring.

Congratulations!
You'll have to add a picture!
Sounds like the dealer has treated you well so far. That's always a plus. Weekend of get familiar camping is a neat idea and who can argue with meals.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your new 378. We are enjoying ours too. We arrived at the dealer on Monay the 13th and, since we are full-timers spent the next 3 days transfering everything from our fifth wheel to the new motorhome. We finally left Friday afternoon with our new 2011 378TS. We had the dealer put a switch inside the rig for the elec. side of the water heater, thought it was strange there wasn't one. And, another 110 outlet in the bedroom. Also, there were only 4 baskets in the pantry so we had them add 4 more. We'll probably add some more 110 outlets in the lving room area too. We also had a Winegard SK1000 automatic dish installed. Very glad we did that too, in less tha five minutes after pressing the button you are watching TV. We too, made a deal with Lazy Days but ended up getting the Georgetown in Eldridge, IA at Terry Frazer's RV, only 160 miles from us rather than the 1500 Lazy Days is. Both dealers were very good to work with and Lazy Days gave me my $500 deposit back, no questions asked. We're going to be headed south on Oct. 11th for the Rio Grande Valley. Can't wait!

Congratualtions: We have the 2008 Georgetown 378 and love it. I think it has 20,000 on it now and going strong. We took a trip out west last year and it handled great thru the mts towing a Saturn. You will like the large livingroom and fireplace. Our fireplace shuts down the heater each year when we winter in Florida. And Remember to keep the batteries charged when opening and shutting the slides and using the jacks. There is a lot discussed on this web about the subject. Make sure lazy Days checks your front end alignment as some 378s have had problems with allignment and wore out their front tires early. Ours was off and caught at our dealer when he was installing a Safe-T Stablizer onour stearing linkage. FR took care of it. They had to sed it out to a Ford Truck dealer. You can normally tell if it pulles to the left or right while driving it. We stop in Brunswick Ga every January and late March while traveling to and from Florida from Virginia. Enjoy your new Georgetown.

Why wait till spring ??????

Why wait until spring? Do what the snow birds do, come to Florida while it is cold in Georgia. Do a January or February for your warranty work. That way you get to meet great people from the north that are down in the "SUNSHINE STATE" getting their winter tan!

CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW ADVENTURE
