Phil you definitely are rolling! That averages about 15,000 miles a year using Aug 2011 as a starting point.

Who has the most miles on their Georgetown?

Full timing with 21000 miles on the 2014. Lots of issues most of which have been self inflicted. Many issues solved during the learning curve with the help of this blog. Skinned a small section of roof in the tight confines of the oak trees in Myrtle Beach State Park and got a new rubber roof thanks to the crazy and generous insurance company. The very rough roads in the desolate parts of New Mexico and Arizona have taken a recent toll. Constant thrown beakers and a couple of panels shaking loose on the exterior need repair. Actually, lost the Jeep toad due to a sheared pin and snapped safety cables. A little damage to the Jeep and the rear of rv getting the Jeep to stop. Thank god no one was hurt and can still travel. Hard lesson learned...stop and inspect after any jolts and constant vibration! I now have upgraded to Grade 8 bolts, lock washers and real chain. Otherwise, I can see a decrease in issues as we have "broken in" the coach. From Key West to DC to Texas beaches to Vegas and back and forth. Just did the Million Dollar Highway and camped at 9000 ft in Silverton CO and loved it! There is no way to enjoy this beautiful country except in an RV. California here we come, look out!

Other than your self inflicked damage you are still smiling and travelling.
Good job!
Where are you now and where do you plan to stop in California?
Maybe I can suggest some great campgrounds on the beach.

Just turned 3000 miles on my 2015 GT 364ts. We love it. It really works for us. We love the two bathrooms. The layout is perfect. The only issue was a block of wood stuck in the gray water valve in one of the tanks. It was from the construction of the coach.
