XL vs Non XL GT

What are the differences between GT XL line and just the GT line?

Wife and I just bought our first GT MH in early April. 2010 350TS with the hunk house for the kids.
1600 miles & 9 nights so far.

Basically the XL has a lot of stuff standard that are options on the other models. When my '05 was made the XL included a 10 gallon WH, dual pane windows and some trim upgrades.

There may be others but I am not sure about the newer model years.

I was told told that GT does not make XL's every year. Any truth to that?

The XL has a nicer dash, more room, nice driver's arm rest with switches. I believe they have the bigger chassis with bigger wheels. Basically more luxury.

Look on the FR website. Many of the models do not come in XL. I have a 2013 335. Don't believe that comes as an XL.

XL models have more standard features. One difference is the compartment doors. XL models open the side and standard GT models lift up. Chassis is the same for both, all based on the length of the coach.

at least for 2014, chassis is NOT the same for both....20,500lb chassis for the GT and 24,000lb for the GT XL....

big differences between the two....

Guess it has to do with the full size refrigerators available in the XL, but are probably available as an option on the standard as well. I'm sure the number of slides come into play as well. When we bought our coach every chassis had the same rating at 22,000lb, but each model then was also available as an XL or not. I read where it was mentioned that a standard GT had compartment doors that opened to the side. Who knows what they change along the way.

What I should have said is both lines are built on the Ford F53 Chassis but depending on length and number of slides etc. the ratings will vary from the XL Line and the standard GT Line.
