We, too, looked at this 5er. It's one of only two that we've liked.

Thank you very much jamesr3406. The garage height was also a question I had.

We have purchased a 2017 GD 376 and one thing GD has done, they have reconfigured the garage. It is not a big change but to some it will be great. It does not change anything in the bedroom. What they did is widen the left side of the garage below the bedroom floor about 6" so that if you have a ATV it gives you a little more room and they move the fuel station and the fuel tank fill nozzle forward. This gives you more storage. They also moved the handles for the gray and black tank dumps up into the back storage compartment on the left side.

We happened to luck into this at the dealership as they had one it stock. I had not heard of any changes and the dealerships never mention any changes in the new models. They did have a couple of the 2017s with the old stye configurations in stock and after looking at the new style that is what we went with.

I recently purchased the 348M. Was a good mix of living space and play space. In any event, I don't think you can go wrong with a Grand Design brand toy hauler.

It is interesting that all these posts on Grand Design RV's do not mention the terrible problem they have with greased brakes. The owner's forum, one of the best, indicates via current survey, that 80% or so have reported dangerous greased brakes, where the seals leak and destroy braking. My new one, only 2 weeks old, had greased brakes and the RV repair shop said it never should have been towed. GD uses junk brakes and axles from Lippert and the problems are numerous.

A few issues we have had with our 376:

1) Awning collapsing with a very slight breeze. Made by Carefree. GD and CF say it is not covered under warranty but GD did send replacement arms at no cost but I had to pay to have them installed.

2) Shower door leaking at base, had to be resealed

3) Fresh water tank mounting brackets failed and tank fell almost all the way to the ground.

I still like our 376 and do not regret buying it. I do think as with any coach that there is not any regulation or building codes we are at the mercy of any dealer and or builder. Time will only tell if we made the right choice. I do love the this floor plan and GD does have an excellent customer service reputation. I just hope they do live up to it!!

Just be sure you pull the hubs on all wheels to have the brakes checked. Both the awning and shower problems are known too, mine had them, but GD tells me they will fix. But why they use cheap components, who knows. It wii be very interesting to see the impact of the Winnebago buy out.
