Hello Group,

Rose and I (Glen) Have had a Class A motor home since 1986 and a trailer for 13 years before that.  We currently have a 1975 GMC 26' Avion.  After almost 46 years of being able to snuggle up on a cold night, twin beds just don't make it!  We came across the Phoenix Cruiser and realized it was time to get a new motor home.

We are looking at the 2910D as our perfect layout.  I like the extra slide out of the 2910T, but I don't want to give up the Euro chairs and small table and did not care for the table arrangement of the "T" model.  So for us and our German Shepherd Baron and his two cats, the 2910D is just right.

So who are we.  Well Rose and I spent 24 years in the Marine Corps.  I entered as a Private in 1966, flew 350 combat missions as a .50 Cal door gunner in Viet Nam, served as a Marine Corps Drill Instructor, a Warrant Officer and a Commissioned Officer.  I retired in 1990 at the grade of Major and as the Executive Officer of a Marine Corps Support Squadron.  By job title I was always an Air Traffic Controller, but filled any job the Corps cared to assign me.  After retirement I managed large airports, owned an aviation business and have been a licensed pilot since 1964.  Rose on the other hand had the most difficult job of all.  She was a Marine Wife and mother who ran a household by herself for all of those years when I was away. 

Due to the many issues that came up during my 24 years as a result of Combat, Agent Orange, etc., I now have great difficulty getting around sometimes.  So the lowness of the Phoenix Cruiser is going to be a great asset.  And...I think it will be much easier for me to drive than a big basement class A motor home.

We've lived in Yucca Valley, California for 28 years now.  It's about 15 miles north of Palm Springs at an altitude of 4,000 feet.  The summer are mild and the winters can be cold and snowy.  We did have 16" of snow one night.

Regards,

Glen and Rose
