My husband and I are still learning about Class A Motorhomes and over the past few months have done a lot of reading. We found this Georgie Boy listed about an hour away from us and I'm just curious what other people's opinions are about it.

I believe the ad is incorrect and should be listed as a 2006 not 2007 model. We wanted to wait until fall to purchase something but I couldn't help but look. I should note that we would be replacing the carpeting and couches.

So tell me what you think.....give us the good, the bad and the ugly on this buy.

I always wondered what the interior designers were smoking when they picked out material
Doesn't look too bad
Are tires original?

Why do you think it should be a 2006 and not a 2007? You can't go by the VIN as that's when the chassis was built not the MH. It's very common for the chassis to be a year or two older than the body.

my thoughts;

it looks very clean and well cared for. The fact that the dealer has so many pictures means they don't seem to be hiding anything and in the video they point out issues which seems very forthcoming. The mileage bothers me. It's only about 2k miles per year so it may have sat for long periods of time. I'd be curious to know genset hours - low is not good for those either. If the weights are correct on the ad there is very little room to tow a vehicle. Looks like only about 2500 lbs capacity left. Looks like they are right on avg retail from NADA. Low retail is $27k. You can bet they traded it in much less than 27k, but I am sure they had to detail it etc. Check for leaks, roof condition, inside cabinets and bins for signs of water etc. He says the tires are 2016 so that's good and saves you money there. But all in without seeing it, it looks like a very nice coach.

I didn't notice any jacks.


LOL yes but I have seen worse! There is a video posted on the web page and it states "tires are fairly new". I have not seen it in person though

I did not see that Model # listed for that year but I did see it for 2006.

Ahh yes, the weight issue. We need as much carrying capacity as we can get. I was curious about the low miles as well but not worried about it too much. I do know that low miles on the gen is not a good thing. [emoticon]

Why does low mileage bother people?
When I go shopping for a vehicle I don't look for the highest mileage, lol.
So what if it sits? Less wear and tear on the drivetrain
Bought our 2006 when it was 8 years old and 3800 miles.
I forget the gen hours but way less than 100
Both run like a champ
My 43 year old corvette only has 54k miles.
Doubt anyone wants it now.[emoticon]

Price seems high. Georgie Boys were mid-level coaches. If you went a little older, you could get a nice DP.

In my opinion Georgie Boy’s were well built motor homes, we owned two of them over the years and both were well built coaches. The price of anything is only as good as you think it is, if you are happy with it the price is good no matter how high or low it was.

I'm showing my age now, I don't see anything wrong with the colors. Looks fine to me. If it were mine, I'd use it exactly as it is for a while before making any cosmetic or functional changes. There might be a reason the carpet is the color it is and the fabric the color it is. You won't know until you get into it and begin using it. I've definitely seen more unsightly interior designs, like all white, beer can aluminum, or mechanical garage grey and black. Maybe I'm truly am an old hippie at heart!

nothing wrong with low miles , ours gets about 3k a years lot of short trips, and get down on your knees and get the date code on the tires, and brand then google that brand for reviews, if there 5years or older they got to go. tires arn,t cheap. and double check for leaks,and title check that its not a salvage title.
