I have an Independence model 8295.....Love the MH, a good entry level....However, a word of caution...I and others have experienced a total lack of cust service from GS....I have called and e-mailed on a dozen occasions and have never ever recieved a response....My independent RV tech will no longer deal with any GS warranty product due to their lack of timley payment, unreturned calls for warranty work, etc....Others in other cities have expressed the same comment....However, I have heard of others who have not had issues...Just look at the feedback on this site and others for GS as it relates to cust service over the past 2-3 yrs......Do your homework....
My MH, which I like, has a gross wt on the frt axle of 7000 lbs....When I bought it I had it weighed, totally empty of everything, not even clothes inside yet, except 1/2 tank of gas.....It weighed exactly 7000 lbs in the front....So anything I add in frt of the rear tires puts it over in front...This is unexcusable by the mfg.....I just never thought to weight it before I bought it....
There is simply too much competition out there among the mfg's still in business to not pick the best one that suits your needs and will fulfill any issues you may have with a new unit.....And you will have issues that need attn......
