Purchase 2016/2017 Georgetown 364TS

Hi,

I am looking to purchase a Georgetown 364TS, either 2016 or 2017. I have also been looking at the Tiffin Allegro 35QBA...The tires on the Tiffin are bigger and hear the Tiffin provides better handling, but is the higher cost worth the trade off compared to the Georgetown 364TS...What are the plus and minus of Georgetown? 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.

We passed on all of them and went with Coachmen. Better designs in the bunks, bathrooms and cockpit.
Residential refrigerator and a huge shower.

We were loyal Jayco owners and reading about the Precept issues on JOF we're glad we saved $35K and bought Mirada.

Add Sumo springs front and rear on anyone of them and they will all handle and ride great.

I bought a 2017 Georgetown 364TS last week and took it camping over the weekend and absolutely love it. This is my first RV so I have nothing to compare it to, but drives and rides great.

It does lack some power going up hills and passing, but it was no problem going 70-75 down the highway.

We had FR pay for an alignment, added a rear trac bar, front Super Steer, centric bags in the rear tires (because they were off to install dulley valve stems) and we have no push from trucks, drives straight snd tows are Jeep effortlessly.

Unless you looked at an early 2016, the tire sizes are the same, 235/80-22.5. I have put 11k miles in 9 months on my 364 without any type of suspension modifications. I am considering a trac-bar though. Short of stupid things that have broke (e-track on slide, blind bracket) have had zero problems. There was an issue with the generator, but think I've worked that out.

We looked at a Winnebago Vista, Fleetwood bounder, Coachman Mirada and purchased a Forest River Georgetown 364TS. The Georgetown has the larger format tires, better value and through a very reputable dealer. We're making some suspension changes but that's because of how I would like it to handle. We had a few issues that typically happen in the first couple months of a shake out, when the rig is new. Stuff happens when you're moving entire house down the road. We love ours and never had only one previously. It's a dream come true for us. We feel very blessed.

We just traded a 2014 Georgetown 335 on a 2016 Allegro Open Road 36LA. Don't know about the 364, but the Allegro is so much nicer inside. No particle board with vinyl wrapped frames. Has the sumo springs so it rides really nice. Still has the V-10 and the power problems, but couldn't justify 46K more for the Open Road Red. Went to the factory in Red Bay,Al and had some stuff fixed. Was a great experience.

Thank you. The tiffin is more expensive, so I think different market. How is the washer dryer on the Georgetown? I do like the tiffin. Have heard nothing but good things on their service. How does FR rate for their service of the Georgetown?
