After the smoke clears Winnebago/Itasca will probably still be in business.

Very good coach for the $'s spent. I owned an '04 359ts and really enjoyed it. What problems I had the factory took care of promptly. I had no complaints.
Safe travels...

I had a 2008 georgetown 378ts, was a nice coach, had a few minor issues but the lay out was ideal, traded it for a winnebago tour, 2 differant caliber motorhomes, but the georgetown was good

Winnebago/Itasca takes it hands down with service, part, and factory assistance. Then there is the 2nd owners registration and the Winnebago Itasca Traveler's group.

Georgetown

I purchased a 2010 Georgetown 378 new in March. After looking at shows, and on the internet we found this motorhome for under 100k. My previuus motorhome was a Winnebago class C which we really liked. When it came to price and extras the Georgetown won hands down. We have had it out 5 times so far this year, and no problems. I love this thing, and think we will have this one for a long time. First trip in April was cold, below freezing at night. We evperienced rain, sleet, and snow. No leaks, everything worked and we stayed nice and warm. As far as Forest River being around a long time, Warren Buffet does not buy companies that won't be around. Really liked my Winnie, but love this Georgetown.

We chose an Itasca Suncruiser and have been very impressed. Strong factors include the company, the handling of the electronics, the quiet basement air, and general quality.

How does Winnebago/Itasca factory look at used W/I Motor Homes? Would we have their assistance such as information and guidance differ from new puchase. To clairify Not necessarilly refering to warranties but are you even recognized by the mfg.?
Looking at winnebago and itasca would be the 3rd moho we have bought this would be a full timer. So, bang for the buck is criticle and as is quality and dependability thats why the W/I choice. Looking for any input or thoughts.

Do yourself a favor and phone Winnebago before you make your decision. Talk to the tech people and see if they would give you any support. Then go online and look up their systems diagrams and see if thats helpful. Do a search on this website of problems that the different manufacturers have with their coaches. Now you will have an unbiased opinion which brand is best for you.

Thanks Chuck 1935 good plan, I'll do that. Just really started fine tuning my search, but from past experience this is certainly a key place to start. I'll post discoveries in the future its a work in progress.

Thank Swannee.
