Is the Georgetown line dependable?

I am new to this forum and wondering if any one out there has any advice on the 2011 - 2012 Georgetown 374TS . Is the Georgetown line dependable ? Do they break down a lot ? Gas mileage ? Towing horse power ? Just some basic pros and cons is what I'm crossing my fingers for . Thanks for the help on this if you reply .

Motorhome manufacturers build a box (the coach) and buy all of the major stuff from various suppliers. With some exceptions Forest River uses about the same stuff as the others. Either a Ford V10 or Workhorse (Chevy) chassis a couple of water heater and refrigerator makers, hydraulic or spring assisted jacks and on and on. There are many opinions as to which suppliers are better than others.

The issue is their ability to interconnect and install all of this stuff so that it works well together. After that, it is the reliability of the subcontracted systems.

I have known folks with Coachmens, Airstreams, Winnebagos, Itascas, and Mountain Aires all of whom have had some degree of problems. The real key is a dealer you trust and who will work with you in resolving issues.

These are complicated machines with lots of moving parts subject to a lot of vibration and things are going to work loose.

My opinion is that FR does a good job of putting these things together with some great features for a good price and they may be a little less reliable than one of the $250K jobs but are a good value.
