Ah now I'm getting more of the whole picture, many thanks. It's what is great about this forum......chances to learn from others and one day pass it on myself. Appreciate that DriVer.

My apologies again Joe for the sidebar here......

Back to the 2006 Georgetown overall, anyone? There's some Georgetown owners here, perhaps they'll chime in too.

Regards,
W.D.

I second marjoa's book idea DriVer. I would buy it day one. It would be a shame if your knowledge went un-shared to the masses

We have a 2004 Georgetown 326ds with the Workhorse chasdis. Based on some research I've done, I think n that ours might have been the last Workhorse for at least a couple of years. If you do a NADA search, the only drive train option for 2004 is Ford. Ours is technically a 2003 chassis but sold as a 2004. I'm not sure about 2006 since I understand that the chassis was resurrected for a while.

As far as Georgetown goes, it works well for us. It has good floor space, and pretty good storage inside, under, and closets. The bath is adequate as is the counter space. We bought for snowbirding, which we actually have only done once.

The build quality is reasonable for a mid-price class A. We have not had any serious problem a since we purchased in 2012.

Maybe for your model of RV, but there are a lot more models out there past 2004 with Workhorse chassis, but I believe the last of the Workhorse chassis is 2012.

Any input is appreciated. Its about 200 miles away from me so I would like to know others thoughts about this before planning a trip to see it,
Thanks!
Too bad they don't give a price, when I was shopping for mine, I just would not do business with anyone if the price was not listed on the ad, just a lot of wasted time, IMHO

PPL is a great website for consignment RVs for sale, you can check out what they have, and what they have sold, and compare prices to what you are shopping for.

Oh sorry it did give the price on the site before I clicked to the details, it was about $44k but NADA says about $35k for low retail

Thank you all for you feedback to me this is very helpful!

We bought a Newmar Kountry Star 3742 a couple of years ago. One thing we really like about the coach that we haven't seen in others is the very large kitchen counter space. Not sure how many coaches you have looked at but it might be worth looking around some more to gauge the various floor plans. Mine is on the Workhorse W24 chassis.

Hmmm ok, maybe I overlooked it. Went back, I found the price, I just saw the request a quote on the first page.

One thing to consider some lenders will only finance based on the price of the Low Retail price.

Good Luck searching for your RV

I have a 06 340 on a ford chassis, have had it for 5 years now with no major problems. We like it and it gets us where we want to go and is very liveable. Just be aware of anything you buy check the tire dates and expect to spend another 25 to 3 grand if they are over 7 years old, check the tires very well for cracking. You can use this to chop the price down a little.
