Potential Greyhawk 31FS Purchase

We're contemplating buying this for our family of 5 from Vogt in Ft. Worth. Deal's for around 78k and I'm thinking so far that's a pretty fair price. I've done lots of searches on the Greyhawks here and so far other than the finicky hot water heater issues, it seems that they are pretty solid unit. This will be my family's first time RV'ing so we're looking forward to learning and enjoying during the experience. My children are 11, 9, and 3 so as far as I'm concerned it's now or never... Soon they'll all be way too cool to want to be with Mom and Dad for any extended period of time

I live in Mississippi and purchased 2014 Grewhawk 31FS last year and we really enjoy it. We have had very few issues. Yes the hot water is a little tricky, but after I go the air out of the lines, things worked better. I did also have issues with the keyless key pad. I have two granddaughters that just love the bunk beds. As for price, that is pretty good but I think you can get a few more dollars or service / supplies thrown in. Just a thought. Good luck and keep on the forum - there is good tips to be found.

Yep! My two youngest are girls and they're very excited to use the bunks. The main attraction for me is not having to make up the sofa or dinette beds every day with the bunkhouse models. We were very interested in the Thor Palazzo's but price, slide issues, and other things led us back to the Class C's.

One question i do have, is how hard is it to install an in-motion wineglass on these things? Is this something I HAVE to get the dealer to do it is it something my nerdy self can tackle?

Best regards, from Central Tejas, on your potential purchase. DW and I pick up our 29MV tomorrow afternoon from our dealership located just south of Austin. I've heard/read lots of gripes concerning the tankless HW system. In fact, I called our salesman this afternoon to inquire on the issue and he says this is the first he has heard of the problem. Hmmmm...

From what I understand, the system works once you figure out how to manipulate it. We'll find out later this month when we head out to Blanco SP for our maiden voyage.

Best of luck on your decision and future travels...

I just bought a 2015 GH 31FS, last week. I think the price you are getting is very fair. I actually paid just a little more than you, however, I had a trade (Travel Trailer), and the dealer gave me back the same price that I paid for the Travel Trailer a year and half earlier. So, selling price and trade make me think that you are getting a very fair deal.
We haven't taken a Maiden Voyage in it yet, but that's only a few weeks away. I have 3 kids 11, 9, 7, and they have already sorted out bunks and over cab sleeping. This is a great rig/layout for a family of this size. We looked at a lot of other models, but like what this one had to offer the best. Good luck with your decision and purchase!

Sorry but I don't know what an "..in-motion wineglass .." is.


Thanks
