I am not sure what you want to know but I can tell that it is probably a mid 2000 Georgetown. It is almost identical to our 2004, except ours is on a Workhorse chassis. (The bedroom is different but the bath and living area look the same).

Ours fits our needs very well and was very reasonably priced when we bought it 3 years ago.

I've seen another 2005 and there is not much difference. I'll be happy to answer any questions you have. I probably won't be much help for questions on the Ford chassis but there are lots of folks out here that can help on those.

Don't be offended but you've only shown the superficial stuff. Start at the top of the vehicle and closely examine it. Check out all of your systems to insure they work. Fire up the stove, oven, furnace, hot water heater, fridge, AC. Examine the tires for their age, not how good they look. Ask to see service records. If they can't provide them ask if you can get the previous owners phone #.

Whether you are experienced or a 1st timer you really need to look the unit over. For most this is a very large purchase. Don't get excited because it looks pretty. You're gonna be living in it and driving it. Check out the internet to see what a comparable unit is selling for and adjust your price accordingly ... unless you know for sure you have a gem.

If you are new to motor homes find someone who has some knowledge about them. You'd be amazed at what first time buyers miss.

The guy didn't even know the unit, a 3500 gennie? Really, lol. Everything's sound! I bet! He has no clue. He was selling gym memberships last week. Go thru this or any coach at your own pace, not the salesman's.

Any more info for the curious? Price? Mileage? Other observation?

BTW: the Gen should be a 550.

We got a Car Fax report on ours. We also were able to look up the pricing in NADA (I think that's the one I used).

If it needs tires, offer less unless they will replace them. Then make sure they use the correct tires with recent manufacturer dates.

I would keep searching, I bought this 07 with 24,000 miles on it. A mayor owned it and wanted something smaller. And the price was right.

Check around floor in slides to see if it has leaked and check both side mirrors to see if they are tight. The one I had had leaked behind both mirrors and rotted out the walls and bedroom slide leaked on both slides. Mine was a triple slide model. V10 ford ran great but George Town forest river aint best in quality in my opinion
