We had a 2006-2551PC and just bought a 2012-2552.
The 2552 has much more storage space.
They tell me they went to 2-6v Trojan batteries as standard. But if not, it is a no charge option.
Excellent. That's the way it should be!
Cabinets- We like light colored cabinets. Make thinks much brighter inside.
I'll point that out to my wife - although neither of us care for blonde wood - but you're the second person to point this out, and it bears some thought.
1-A/C is plenty. Where we travel we are lucky to find 15amp service. Can't see why you would want 50 amps, for a few minutes of microwaving while air is on.
Why not? If its available at the park, might as well be able to take advantage of it!
By the way they put a fan in the rear of the refrigerator in the slideout, really required with no top vent.
Yea, from what I've heard about that kind of setup, this makes sense. Glad they've already placed a fan.
Rig color, we travel in hot weather and prefer all white outside.
I've heard all my life that white is the most popular color choice for cars - which I've never understood as I like color, and lots of it! But with all that said,
I'm inclined to go with "mostly" white as its cheaper for one; and as you say, cooler for another!
Unless you plan to drive you rig over 200K miles, you really can't ever justify having a diesel to save money. We drive a lot but probably only average 10K per year. Long trips is why I prefer power seats and we like all cloth everywhere. It is a very good quality material in the newer units.
Laughing... I'm a diesel person - of course I'll drive it over 200K miles. I just had a fight with my insurance company over my T-boned '85 Mercedes-Benz. They protested "Its a 27 year old car with over a quarter million miles on it!" to which I replied "Yes, and if all things go as typical for this vehicle, I won't have to pull the head for another 100K to 150K miles. That's another ten to fifteen years." They fixed it.
I'll take the gas motor if I must - and it looks like I must - by all accounts its a good one. But I sure do wish Americans (and Japanese to a lesser extent) would stop screwing around with inefficient gasoline engines. As a for instance, put a diesel in a Prius and you'd have my attention - as it is, all that expensive hybrid technology brings a gas motor to the same approximate efficiency as a diesel. What. Ever.
Glad to hear it about the cloth seats. One of my (many) pet peeves about the American car market is the in-ablity to be able to spec a vehicle by line item like, I'm given to understand, you can do in much of the rest of the world. Instead, we're stuck with these take it or leave it "packages". PC is a VERY refreshing change from that mindset.
