Wife and I have also somewhat narrowed our choice down to a new Georgetown 335DS , or a new Bounder. Same floor plan but different chassis.

I don't like the fact the Georgetowns inverter provides power ONLY to the refriderator and nothing else, the dash layout, and the Satellite "Prep" starts on the roof and stops three feet away in the front overhead cabinet.......and 15 feet away from the TV !!!!

They both have the six speed transmissions, same V 10.

To me the Tiffin is the next level up along with the Newmar.

We are just loooong weekenders, and a few weeks here, and a few weeks there so not considering those..........yet !

Definitely not like home, but with 2 adults and a small child we can do a load a day and pretty much keep up on laundry.

The purpose of the washer/dryer is to do camping laundry...Will they do that type of work? Sounds like, for dollar, the Georgetown 364TS, Fleetwood Bounder, Coachmen Mirada meet the need for camping (weekender, occasional week long trip), but if desire to go more full time, then a Tiffin would be great. I did not see a Tiffin with a washer/dryer option to include bunkbeds. As far as feel when driving, this comes down to how much you want to steer yourself, to get assistance with stabilizers.

Can anyone tell me where the corners are cut to bring the cost down?

If I purchase at one dealership, will all dealership assist with warranty work or non warranty work?

I love my Georgetown 364TS. The only issue Ive had is with the strut FR uses to hold the door open. There's gotta be a better way to build a mousetrap. Twice now the wind has grabbed the door and yanked it right out of our hands and yanked the strut loose. Grrrr. Otherwise, love it! Love the bunks and the two full baths. Its a little lacking in kitchen cabinets but you cant have everything I guess. My W/D works fine but its small loads. No mechanical problems at all although we are going to give it the true test this winter, so far only a weekend here and there. Good luck with your decision!

Is it worth buying the Georgetown compared to the Thor Hurricane 34J or the Jayco Precept? I like the layout of the Georgetown 364TS. What are the thoughts from the community? Thank you.
The 364TS comes with 22.5" and so does the Allegro. The only 364s with smaller tires were a very few 2015s released in 2014.

My Georgetown didn't have a washer/dryer. That is why we bought the Tiffin when we looked at it, wife wanted it and I wanted the half bath.

My Georgetown was considered used since I was the second owner, even though it only had 2,300 miles on it, so they wouldn't cover anything. Fortunately I bought the extended warranty.
We love the Tiffin, and are considering going full time next year.

Externally vented combo washer-dryer install is very simple in a 364, they are plumbed for the unit. It is a dealer installed option so make it part of the deal if you want it. Be sure to get the vented model, it is usually what they install but better safe than sorry.

Mine had everything including full body paint, but no washer so I decided to save $1,000 and do it myself when I felt the need.

We had a non vented washer/dryer in our 35 ft travel trailer. Took forever to dry anything.

The one in this Tiffin is still a all in one unit, but it is vented. I still use the campground laundry for sheets and sometimes jeans and towels.
