Hi. I'm new to this forum, and pretty new to rv'ing. I currently own a 2011 32ft Jayco Greyhawk Class C ....less than a year old. I am happy with it's performance, but would like to step up to more interior room. Have many of you made as quick of a move up, and were you happy? Also, really like the Georgetown 378TS layout and will be looking at one of those. Any shared experiences (good or bad) with this RV would be greatly appreciated.

We have an '02 GT 325 (Ford F53 with V-10). We bought it used in 2010 with 12,000 miles and 45 hours on the generator.

Overall, we're comfortable with it. Ride quality is about what you'd expect with an 11-ton box truck, which is what it is under the skin. Personally, I'd rather spend my money on campground fees and gasoline than trying to make it ride like a Lincoln Continental.

My main criticism, and it's not a show-stopper, is the quality of the FR-built furniture. It looks good on the surface, but when you look closely, a lot of the "oak" is actaully hemlock with a veneer. The way the cabinetry is anchored to the walls is also a bit flaky. It's not anchored to major structure that's in close proximity and it's not obvious what it is attached to. The engineering seems to be lacking in attention to detail. I get the impression that a lot of the interior is built inside the rig with raw materials. I may be wrong.

For the price (used) and low utilisation (<13,000 miles in 8 years), we're reasonably happy. Would I buy a new $85K rig from FR? - probably not. I've heard reports that construction quality has improved significantly in the last 3 years, so maybe my experience with our rig isn't typical of a current new one.
