New or used?

Hi all. I'm new to loving rvs . We fell in love with a new georgetown 378 xl but saw models a few years old with very few miles for less than half the price . We are looking to get advice or to see if anyone knows if big differences between the years.
Great to be here

I can't speak to the motorhome side of things but our experience buying our used travel trailer from our local Forest River dealer last year has been stellar.

Remember that RVs are not built to a very exacting standard and almost all new ones have little problems that need to be taken care of, either by you or the dealer. Some have BIG problems. A gently used model is likely to have the teething issues all worked out.
