There is a new Tiffin gasser parked near me. Take a look at the paint job. The paint itself may be OK, but the sides are not smooth like the Georgetown. It almost looks like they painted a fiberglass side without preparation. I'm not sure if different models have different paint quality, but I was not impressed by this one. I did like the way they mounted the windshield. A much cleaner look than the Georgetown.

Did you notice gas struts and back up chains on all the compartment doors, ducted return air vents and electrical outlets on the kitchen wall where needed as well?

However, I would also guess that most of us landed up with our GT/FR because they do give you a heckava lot of features found on more expensive name plates at much lower cost(s).

Really no difference in price as you can get 25-30% off list on Tiffin
I got a better price on the Tiffin than I could on the Georgetown as we narrowed our choices between the 2. Either one is a good choice.

I bought a new 2010 Tiffin 38' bunkhouse RED. Yes, we had about 50 issues off the assembly line but Lazy Days in Tampa, FL, took care of everything and what a great place to be stuck at. They feed you breakfast and lunch and the Crown Club has daily happy hours and finger food. If you have to stay overnight, you move into your coach after the mechanic leaves for the night. They even pull it out of the bay enough to get satellite. Bob Tiffin and I were on a first name basis and he offered to take care of everything at Alabama but I chose not to make that trip since I enjoyed Lazy Days. I do believe the amenities at Lazy Days are only good if you buy it there. I WOULD buy a Tiffin again if I wanted a larger coach. For now my Coachmen 29DS is just what the doctor ordered. We love it. Also heard tons of stories on how Tiffin takes care of you post warranty. Good luck

I owned a 2007 38ft w/4 slides we loved it, was a gas coach w/Allison transmission the only reason that I got rid of was due to the serious issues with the roofs splitting have they got this issue fixed when I called tiffin they stated that I was 3 months out of the time limit to get the roof replace, it never split but I was always very concerned and it consumed my thoughts so I unloaded it. Would have been $$$$$$$$

Boy I do agree on the smooth sidewalls of my Georgetown. I think they may have the best fiberglass gel coated exteriors in the industry. Also, regarding heat vents and electrical outlets, I think my GT has done an excellent job with the vents, in floor in the bedroom and bath and under the cabinets blowing into the coach, and I can't believe how many electrical outlets my rig has in comparison to my 2000 former Tiffin.

For us it was all about the floorplan. As fulltimers we insisted on opposing living room slides. The GT 378 was absolutely the best bang for the buck. To match the liveability of the 378 it would have cost way much more because we would have been forced into a diesel rig.
