Does anyone pull a toad with the Georgetown?
My GT pulls my 2011 Ford Escape with ease. Going up long, steep grades I pass DPs all the time. I drive 60 MPH or so, never a problem.

Happy Trails, Forrest

We have owned the 378 xl for a year and been full timing since June. We love the rv. We pull a Jeep Wrangler and have no issues with power traveling through some steep climbs and decents in TX, NM, AZ, UT, and CO. It can get loud on the climb but the money saved up front on the gasser and at the pump make it no big deal. 13000 miles so far. Most problems have been self inflicted and righted with the help of this forum. The minor issues that we had were under warranty were taken care of by the dealer. The best thing about the 378 is the floor plan. We weren't sure about living in a small space coming out of a 3300 sq ft home but we feel very comfortable. Hanging out in TX with family for the holidays. Then its off to Mardi Gras and on to Key West.

We bought a 2014 377XL in Elkhart the end of July. We've since traveled to Maine and now we're in Florida. Our toad is a 2014 Jeep Cherokee. So far, we're very happy with everything. The only minor issues have been a minor slide adjustment and a microwave recall (not done yet). A friend bought a 378XL the same week and had a number of issues with floor tile, windshield leaks, door adjustments, etc. he had over 20 maintenance issues. Must have been built on the half day before a holiday:-). We're living full time in ours, and as I said, we're very happy with it so far. Time will tell if we stay that way. Just a heads up, the 377 is really designed as a two person coach.

We love our 2014 351, when everything works. In our first year of ownership is has been at the dealer addressing warranty issues or otherwise unavailable to us because of warranty repairs a total of six weeks. I understand the whole "it's a house on wheels, things always break the first year" thing, but for our measure, way too much has gone wrong in our first year of ownership. Among other issues, all of the graphics have to replaced because they are lifting; the fiberglass radius curves on the roof are cracking and need to be repaired; the entry door must be replaced because it continually binds when the coach is leveled; The fridge quit working, one of the roof AC's quit, the driver side wiper arm had to be replaced, and the living room slide motor has been replaced twice. There were other issues, but those are the most significant.

All the while, FR has been sensitive and responsive to all the issues, but at the end of the day, we've had too many headaches with this coach.

It seems that we may be in the minority - that most folks have had mostly good luck w/ their coaches - and hopefully that is true. I can only speak to our personal experience.

I don't think FR is a bad company - and we consider the Legacy DP on our short list for the future. I would certainly hope for better luck with the Legacy than with our Georgetown.

I had a 2007 Georgetown 373 I just traded it in and bought a Tiffin Allegro Open Road with a Ford V10
The Georgetown just had too many things go wrong.
The fit and finish.....not so good
The furniture wore out way too soon, no help from company
celing started to sag
and to keep this post short a few outher things
had to be fixed.
I'm sure they are building them better now, maybe
But they lost a customer with me.
Tiffin has way better service.
Good luck with your choice.

We owned our 2014 351 DS for a year now and enjoyed our time with it. We had the "as to be expected" issues with it but one visit to the dealer took care of the list. We had some appliance issues too but dealt directly with Frigidaire on that. We are now actively selling our rig it as we only planned a 1 year ownership with it but surprised at low interest in our model (or maybe it is time of year?). I would recommend FR as we have friends with other makers coaches and for the money it cannot be beat. The fit and finish is once again best bang for the buck. There is always something nicer but once again consider the costs and how you will use the purchase. Lastly what equipment you need or can not be without. Good luck!
