Title: our new Phoenix

Our PC,'Phoenix', is making her way from the rear door to the front door

I'll try to attach a picture of the picture window.

I can see the smile on your face from here.  :-D It looks like a 2551 with a slide to me.

I went to the factory twice, once before they started mine and again at about the same stage yours is in. I found a couple of things I had changed during the second visit. I hope you are getting the full paint, as I did. I can not pull into a campground that someone tells me how great looking my motorhome is. I even have people in parking lots, gas stations and even at stop lights commenting that they like the looks.  :lol

Have a great time with it. !:)!

I just shrank another picture with my wifey, Linda alongside Phoenix.  I'll have to learn an easy way to resize pictures.

Congrats Kevin on the birth of your new baby.

I too vote for full body paint.  Here on the internet, pictures of full body paint are everywhere, seeming they are very common.  But in reality, there are so few to be seen.  At least where we go, most motor homes are plain Jane rentals.  Ours really stands out.  We get many compliments.

Also, the painted surface is so much easier to clean than unpainted fiberglass.  I learned that from owning my first motor home for 24 years.  Plain fiberglass weathers poorly.  Then near impossible to keep clean.

If you didn't get the thermal pane window option, I advise to reconsider.  Oh how nice they are, both quiet and comfortable inside when it's noisey and lousey outside.

I opted for leaving the roof rack and ladder off the RV.  They are in my basement.  After 3 years, still no regrets.
