Hey John: I have a 2005 Georgie Boy Pursuit. It's the lower end of the Class A GB line. Had it since its new and love it. Mine is a 35 ft, 2 slides, V10, bought new and has about 35,000 miles. Last year was our largest trip from Fl to Las Vegas w/ a 2001 Jeep Cherokee toad. Had to go into the slow lane going up the mountains around Aspin Colorado, but otherwise fantastic trip. I suspect if you give a little more info regarding the Cruise Air (i.e. motor type, miles, size)you might get a little more specific information than I can provide. Wish you and your well, safe traveling........ bill

If you look at my signature, you can see that I have a 2000 Georgie Boy but it isn't a Cruise Air.

We shopped for a long time before we bought this RV and are still as pleased with our decision today as we were when we made it. As long as you understand what you getting, my guess is that you will be satisfied.

Part of your satisfaction will be tied to how well the RV has been maintained. At 8 years, for example, it is way over due for new tires if they haven't been replaced. It is a little difficult to go further without more information about the specific type of unit that you are considering. There were 38' DPs sold under the Cruise Air model name but I just saw a gas 2000 model. In any case, knowing the maintenance history might be very important.

We have done quite a bit to ours including having anti-sway bars installed at the chassis (Freightliner) factory. There have been a couple of maddening bugs like periodically loosing the speedometer but we have finally resolved all of those. GBM support has been luke warm at best but we have a great dealer and he has been a big help with
that. We've had great support from Freightliner and we needed every bit of it.

The most important aspect of any RV is how well it suits your needs. For us, the floor plan was a very important consideration. We don't park for very long in one place so traveling comfort was high on our list, too. We got a great price on ours because it only has one slide but we knew that was going to work fine for us and we were disappointed with that choice.

Realistically, you can expect to find some problems during use. We were very careful with our PDI and even then the dealer supported us for a couple of months after the sale, correcting a few things that we found. Overall, I think Georgie Boy's quality in construction is sound and things seem to hold together pretty well.

If there are any specific questions that you have, you may wish to post them.

Good Luck.
