Well it's about damn time! It's only been 10-12 years with the current useless center console.

We have the 2021 Georgetown GT7 36D and it doesnít quite look like this inside. We love it. Itís our first RV but I have yet to see another 2021 on the road.

Yeah this looks really nice compared to how ours looks. The screening being up higher and tilted toward the driver is great! No more looking down toward the floor and not being able to reach it.

Unlike the auto industry, the new model year tends to ease in slowly in RVs.

Agreed. The old console is not great. Can't really see the screen. I like the tablet holder too.

I wonder what's with that slanted panel in the front above the windshield. That pic looks like a drawing rather than a picture.

Wanting to clear up what NXR is referring to.... The pic Iggy posted is actually a pic of the FR3 dash. So, what NXR is seeing is the underside of the overhead bunk. The FR3 bunk style is different than what we run on the Georgetown's. As to Kenandterry's comment about a artist rendition they are kind of right. So it's an actual pic but the view out the front was added. Hope this helps

This is REALLY well thought out and executed. Not enough for me to go buy a new one but I can see me getting my dash redone completely in a couple years.

On a more serious note, every time I think about upgrading my wife reminds me that once you're parked, a 20 year-old gasser rides the same as a half-million dollar DP.

This keeps me from buying a new Georgetown with the new console!

And my next RV won't be a Georgetown, it will be some kind of DP!

Have been looking at the 21 gt7s 36k7, recently noticing the new dash and centervstack has changed for the better. Drove an early production 21 GT7 and couldn’t,tbsee the camera clearly. New configuration turns it toward the driver and has a different monitor from we are seeing on new deliveries, also wood grain rather than the brushed aluminum look.
